    :blackrs4:as mentioned earlier, rupping up my options list for the S3SB, can anyone give me some feedback in the Magnetic Ride option, has anyone tested it? can you really tell the difference, between sport & normal, is it worth the money to add it as an option (€2Κ).

    thanks in advance..

    I started a thread on it a few weeks ago:

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?p=565513#post565513

    The short answer is I don't think anyone has first-hand experience of it in the S3, because it's so new. Ordering it would be a gamble, considering the price.

    BTW, when I started that thread, I was considering an A3 Sportback S line, but I've now changed my mind to the S3 Sportback. I won't be having magnetic ride myself, although that is primarily down to reasons of budget.

    Road conditions should also be taken into consideration. Magnetic ride on the soft setting should be a bonus on bad tarmac.
    It is a 1050€ option in Germany so 2k is quite expensive.

    I went out in an R8 on Sunday with the magnetic dampers and on the ordinary bumpy roads the car was not harsh at town driving speeds. When we were really pressing on round the twisty bits the car cornered very flat with virtually no body roll. This best of both worlds was down to the dampers the Audi saleman said. I know it is not an S3 but the principles should be the same.
