    Just had a test in the new S3. I was very impressed, couldn't give it a proper run for it's money as a) I was short on time, b) I have my arm in plaster, but nevertheless I'm very very very sold!

    Very quick, well quick enough for me, and a nice drive. As for the price? well it's a little steep with the DVD SatNav (I have a Tomtom & PDA), but without that I think it's quite reasonable.

    OK I could look at a used S4 for the money, but I don't need something too big, also I've never felt comfortable in an A4, my knee knocks on the centre console! And with an original price of £40k+ car comes the price of servicing (I would imagine?)...but 4.2l 344ps.....? not sure if I need that!

    So, the TT is going on the market and the S3 is no1 on the list.

    Tell me I'm mad/sensible

    Not sure on the new TT anyway. I've had my 225 Coupé for 5yrs now, great fun, S3 is ideal for me - more space & more speed!

    @ S3Didge - I see you're in Poole, that's where I had my drive this morning. I'm only just up the road....... not seen many about this way either.

    Well chuffed with mine!

    Just get a Audi sat nav from ebay for £420 like quite a few of us on here with new S3's and save yourself about £1600 over the Audi price!

    My TT will be plastered with 4-sale signs from now on! Choice will depend on how quick the sale of that is, only thing is ex-demos with satnav are more than a new order without, 12 weeks for a new one.

    - S3Didge PM me your details and I'll take you up on the run and leisurely view, thanks!
