I picked it up my S3 Sportback from the dealer new at the end of last month and i have to say i am more than happy with the car so far, I just could not stop driving it, it now has 2500 miles on the clock. And for the car and the power output i am so impressed with the economy also. On a 350 mile trip it averaged 33mpg, mainly motorway but some fast A-roads also, the car was fully loaded with me, the Mrs, camping gear and a weeks worth of kit. The S-tronic gearbox is so smooth and i wonder if i will ever go back to a manual after owning it. Spending time on motorways and in traffic it comes into a league of its own, and then you hit the backroads and you can play with the paddles, which are more than responsive to. Around town i'm averaging around 26mpg, which isn't ridiculous either. Overall it has exceeded my expectations and can't wait to do many more miles in it.
