    Hey all,

    Been browsing here for a short while, but decided that the s3 was the right car for me, so picked my s3 up at the weekend.

    It's a 2008 model in grey (pretty sure it's dolpin grey) with buckets (heated), rns-e, bose, xenons, drl's, cruise, phone prep, armrest, dimming mirror, fbmfsw. (think that's it)

    So far so good - just getting used to fwd/4wd following the departure of my 3.0si Z4. I'm loving the surge of torque and actually enjoy the old school nature of the turbo really kicking in above 3k :)

    I'll get some piccy's up later - not got many yet though I'm afraid!

    Cheers

    cheers guys - I've only had it a few days, so will take a while to get used to and give a meaningful comparison.
    The main difference is the way the power is delivered - the straight 6 in the beemer was very very smooth and rev'd nicely and pulled from low revs easily. Also, the torque delivery in the s3 is much more noticeable than the z4 - the z4 just kept on pulling without any drama.
    Handling - in the dry, the z4 was great. I've never enjoyed having rwd in the wet and the z4 was no exception. The s3 is also better with the bumps - feels more composed. I think that is mainly due to the runflats on the z4.
