    Good darts.
    Always had a soft spot for the MK5 Gti, in particular the ED30.

    Cool car:icon_thumright:

    If your after grip off the lights and better grip on a track then 4wd.

    I think the golf drives a lot nicer and feels effortless but think the s3 (sportback) looks better.

    If its just for everyday use then wouldn't worry about weather it's 4wd or not , you be surprised how many people have 4wd and dont really know how to drive them and they end up coming off the throttle way to early on corners and you end up flying by In your fwd.

    I personally like rear wheel drive, a lot more fun and actually feels like your driving the car rather than the car driving you.

    A long shot but if you have patients and really want 4WD then keep saving and go for the RS4. Drives so much better.

    Try one and you'll see what I mean.

    They are superb cars. and a fair bit quicker than the S3 when on similar power on anything but the launch :)

    Dave said you developed the map around his Eddy (Stage 2 + equiv), he said it used to fly!

    Having so many people come forward and say the Ed30 is good on an Audi forum speaks volumes in my mind. I'm not a traffic light dragster in any case... Much more likely to open her up on a good B road or to overtake. Quite excited about trying a dsg box out for the first time too.

    Cheers,

    The DSG makes the car, the DSG is unreal.
