    how about 5 door focus ST maybe?:p Same performance but real sound and good grunt. Shi* interior though but you can solve this easily by using 10kg of foam filler:D

    I'll agree with that, before buying my 8L S3 I sat in an ST, opened the glovebox, shut it and walked away never wondering if i'd like one ever again :)

    They are better once mapped but for a 2.5 litre turbo they are gash i've found, mapped S3 versus mapped ST isn't far off but it isn't comparable in real terms

    mapped S3 stage 2+ would destroy any ST I reckon in terms of quality, looks and performance:D. Had 2 STs before and just couldnt stand perma rattling and losing grip from stand still. My mapped TDI is not far off standard ST but looking to get S3 S tronic in near future just because I found diesel boring to drive (1st gear is a joke, turbo lag, constant gear changes, etc) and hardly any birds turn their heads around when they hear me coming :lmfao: .

    I think a standard S3 would outperform a standard ST no bother nevermind a stage 2+ S3, I think a standard S3 would give a remapped ST a run for its money...

    Audi S3 261hp@6000rpm weight 1455kg
    bhp per ton =183
    0-60 = 5.6
    0-100 = 13.6
    Top end 155

    Ford Focus ST 222hp@6000rpm weight= 1392kg
    Bhp per ton 162
    0-60 = 6.7
    0-100 = 16.3
    Top end 150


    Omg I rolled stats out - shame :(

    well ive had a few plays with ST's in this and my old stage 1 8L S3 and they have never given me any trouble at all.....infact i'd go as far to say a Type R civic (properly driven)would do a standard ST having been against both many a time......

    Redejavu - You've just sealed that for me, i was sat at work thinking I hardly boot mine anymore i might aswell get a diesel
