    I'm going to treat myself to an 8p S3 and just wondering what the difference was... Going to retire my 8l S3 and turn it into project car. Not that I have that much left to do on it anyway....

    There are a few other subtle changes like:

    Tyre pressure monitoring system set up is now in DIS rather than a button on the dash
    AMI replaces the iPod dock (means later cars get to use USB HDD or iPod with cables), and you get info on display of RNSE from the device
    DIS has Eco function (shows suggested gear, and how much fuel is being used by ancillary electricals like heated seats / AC)*
    The wing mirror fold up not in*
    DIS allows you to set up more car options (coming home light timings/footwell lighting brightness/wiper adjustments etc.)*
    You don't get a spare wheel as standard (Tyre foam / compressor)
    The driver head rests don't seem to tip forwards / backwards in the later cars
    You get a nasty fabric service book holder rather than the faux leather ones!

    *not sure if these amendments are on 58 cars on more recent
