    Well I never thought I would say it but I can't wait to get rid of the A3, having had to leave it at the dealers 3 times to get an engine noise sorted my drivers side window has now failed, I also have a problem with intermittent loss of power and second gear sounds clunky at times and it rattles more than my wifes Saxo which is saying something.

    Really not what I expected from an Audi to be honest.

    I was thinking about getting a M3 Evo before I got the S3 - I took a few out on test drives and it's in a different league performance wise to the S3 (in the dry anyway /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif). Only reason I didn't get one was cos I think the shape is looking dated now (especially with the e90 coming out) and I couldn't find a nice example with BMW warranty and my favourite colour - Estoril blue /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif

    Just been looking at how cheap the Elise\VX220's are these days, I could of had one of them for what I paid for mine and it would probably of been more fun
