Currently driving a 2010 TDI S-line and whilst I'm generally very happy with it the tyre noise can be annoying. On motorways above 60mph it approaches unbearable noise levels, chatting becomes very hard and the music system is drowned out unless i crank the volume really high. I DO like the handling, interior and design of the car. I'll have an opportunity to upgrade via the company later this year and am currently looking at an S3 but the tyre noise concerns me. Are the noise levels this bad on all the sportier A3s, how do people who daily commute via the motorway put up with it ?
