    Guys,

    I'm looking at weighing in my S3 for something a bit more "sensible".

    I've got my eye on a 1.9TDi Sport Quattro Avant. Is the quattro system the same as on the S3 (haldex) or will it be permanent four wheel drive?

    but S3 is more nimble, and quick point to point.

    Does this mean cheaper servicing costs then?
