    Hi Folks,

    I have been aware of this forum for some time but usually active in the OZ forums. Thought I would join up and say hello and intro myself and hopefully ask for your help in future should the need arise :)

    Names Rob, own a MY10 Audi S3 with quite a list of mods! The S3 is my daily driver thats been set up specifically for track work and to be street legal at the same time. A very very hard compromise to achieve. Also own a Audi Q5 as our family wagon! Love the Audi product. Great cars over all.

    I track my S3 on a regular basis and also own a VW R32 :) Hope to meet new people here!

    Thought I might share some videos and photos of my S3.

    YouTube - Audi S3 vs the challengers! (Motor Magazine Feature)
    YouTube - Audi S3 0-100km/h in 4 sec! (0-100km/h in about 4 secs)
    YouTube - Golf R32 vs Audi S3 (my R32 vs my S3)

    My S3

    yeh the car is great fun on the race tracks.

    i can get some seriously fast lap times that surprises a lot of the evo's, sti's and other fast cars on track :) and surprisingly its a pretty reasonable car to drive on the streets :)

    The VAG Scene in OZ surprisingly is quite large and has a good following.

    Sadly VAG cars in OZ are quite expensive due to prohibitive Tariffs, Taxes and import duties and the exchange rate. A nice little A3 like yours will retail for about 65k AUD which is like 40K british pounds!

    OZ is great in terms of driving roads weather etc!!! Nice place :)

    Wow, no way, so its worth me shipping mine which was the plan anyway! Glad to see there is a good following out there, sure I will fit in if it happens for us. The good weather sounds good and I totally agree its a fantastic place.
