Hi, Having had an array of annoying issues with my S3 in the past 5 month, i couldn't help but have a sneaky peek at a few alternatives. It was a toss-up between the S3 and a 130i 10 months ago - although i never actually got round to test driving the beema, as i test drove the Audi and went with it, having been a target car of mine for a few years. Great car mechanically, electrics leave alot to be desired! I've got a chance to take on a 335d in a couple of months, but the auto box is putting me off, and although very capable it seems to lack some of the fun of my S3. Has anyone had any experience of 130i?...Cos i hear they are good fun with a great engine, despite the marmite looks. How's it compare to a Revo (st1) BAM S3? The 135i is also interesting me cos of its power and remapablity, tho it's still a pretty penny? Any ideas???
