    Long time lurker, occasional poster, bidding goodbye to the 8P forums, and ASN for now. This place has been a huge source of help over the years, as well as an exceptionally bad influence on my wallet. Thanks to all!

    I've just traded my S3 for the controversial looking M135i.

    Out.

    1. Local Audi dealer looked at me like a piece of sh*t on the 3 occasions I tried to test drive it.
    2. Same 8P platform as the S3 - now superseded.
    3. More expensive.
    4. Fancied some RWD 6 cylinder action.

    Probably because the drive of a BMW knocks the socks off of an RS3!

    The 135i are in the new league of hot hatch. Unfortunately the RS3 is built on a decade old platform.

    Got to agree with the above, however the looks of the new 1's don't do it for me... especially the rear end. Though there's no denying they'd be an absolute hoot to drive.

    Enjoy pal.

    Cheers for the comments guys. I can't deny that it's a funny looking beast, but it's definitely grown on me. Maybe thats because it makes a series of awesome noises and is excellent fun to hoon around in. S3 will always be remembered fondly!

    Enjoy your car. I tried to get the mrs to get a 135 but she opted for a 120d as she wanted a convertible. I was gutted.
