The S3 has gone, sniff sniff . Replaced by a superb BMW 330i M Sport Saloon 2006, with all the toys . Completely different drive to the S3, acceleration is smooth rather than the S3 turbo shove (I'll miss that) . I've loved every minute of the S3. I'll pop back here from time to time to see if anyone has picked up my old car. Cheers all.
