    Careful when leaving your S3 in the Sun - the gear knob top gets very hot :(

    That is actually on purpose... It's so S3 drivers don't loose time changing gears when "racing" a 170 TDI DSG.... lol

    :no: i'm insulted you think the 170 is the only thing that can give an S3 a run for it's money lol

    Here's my rundown:

    S3 > 2.0TFSI > 170 > 140 (stock)

    v2:

    S3 > 2.0TFSI = 140 remapped + exhaust > 170 > 140 (stock)

    Yep, I think a tinkered with 140 can keep up and/or even beat a 2.0TFSI.

    Who's with me?! :jump:

    well actually in Portugal it will be diesels that will try to beat the S3... it is not the first time that 530d have tried the trick.... of course any TDI will give me a go, I just let them win... lol

    If things get out of control I will have to tick the bluefinn button I guess... lol These days there is no respect for a 265ps car... I respect the others....

    I have some OMP gloves, purchased after my hands slipped in my caterham (because of the sweet caused by 20mins of track time) causing a 105 mph spin :) according to the data logger

    PS the corner should have been taken at 98 - 100

    But I have no advanced driver licence :( but then again I don't use them on the road.
