    Cheers guys... not much can be as fun as the RS but has to go!

    Had a 1.8T A3 before the focus which was nice but bit boring to drive... is there much difference in the S3 snd T sport?

    You will be disappointed with the way the S3 handles in comparison to your Focus, I've driven an old shape ST170 and those things run on rails. The interior of the S3 is a far nicer place to be though.

    ive just changed from tsport to S3, the S3 feels a hell of a lot safer, no wheel spin etc...... where the tsport would have.....power delivery is different due to the 6 speed and having to change into 3rd to get to 60mph.....
