    Hi all,

    Ex M3 owner here and very pleased with my 8L S3. Loving the comfort grip and looks.

    Ok performance wise its considerably slower but i'm hoping a remap will sort that out. Right now on greasy country lanes its fantastic being able to get the power down.

    You'll be seeing lots of me on here

    Ian

    I have to admit, the M3 was incredible. So fast! But it was on 106k miles with its second engine (cost me £5500 to fix!) though you wouldn't know it from the condition, that pic is only about a month old!

    It was simply costing too much to run. I'd had it 4 years so was ready for a change. Always loved S3's and couldn't afford the 8P just yet. Just need a remap now to bring some torque back that i'm used to! The S3 is so much easier and comfier to drive, especially in this weather of late!!

    The Landy is great fun too, i love holding people up in it!!!
