    Hang on a minute.....

    it's all making sense now.

    It's like Badger 5 all over again.

    The reason Gops car was chosen people, above all others, is now blindingly obvious.

    He's been bribing people with bloody Pakoras again!

    So unfair :laugh:

    Hahaha! Works a treat ;) but apparently JP loved the s3! He was impressed with the pull and the drivability of it at the mileage it was on!

    Nice and clean, quality example Gops,the other cars looked a lot more dated against the s3, came the top car out of the 3, hopefully they might go up in price with this review lol

    When he was driving it and I caught a glimpse of the intercooler and filter I started to think.... 'Does he really understand EXACTLY what he's driving!'. Probably not the fairest reflection of a stock S3, more an indication of the potential it has in the hands of the right people.

    I've only got free-view.

    Is there anyway the cheap skates who would rather spend our monies on car parts and Vpower can watch it online e.g Youtube or a catch up channel?

    Or if you (Gops) could share it to the VAG Talk group on FB that would also be ideal :)
