    Nice car except they've stuck the S3 badge on the wrong side of the boot and also put a "Quattro" badge under it. Why do people feel the need to add the Quattro badge???? :banghead:

    APY is narrow band lambda, no VVT, no EGT sensor and has SAI (secondary air injection)... is prefacelift and 210ps out the box...

    AMK/BAM is wideband lambda, VVT, EGT sensor and no SAI... AMK is 210ps and BAM is 225ps, both are facelift 8L's

    Essentially wideband ECU's have live lambda control and WOT control of AFR, narrow band ECU's don't...

    Specifics of the differences between the actual sensors can be read about here...

    Keep the S3 badge just relocate to the left side. Ditch the quattro badge as it's not meant to be there ;)

    Apart from that it's a gorgeous car in that colour.

    Looks really nice in white, but definitely get the centre caps matched to the rims and replace the rear light lenses with facelift items. Will look much better after that.

    Agree with Westy, ditch the Quattro badge and move the S3 Badge to the left side of the number plate. I'd replace it with the original red version too.

    More or less yes... power differences are typically subject to mods and engine condition...
