    Now that's one seriously aggressive looking nose! It looks to have a wider stance than standard too.

    Looks like they have finally managed to get the hladex to put more torque to the rear for a more entertaining drive.
    Glad they got rid of the dumbo ears though ;)

    Seems to have good grip even on poor surfaces,and should satisfy those in need of a horny car. :)

    And about as much chance as seeing one of it's 4 wheeled cousins.

    At least nobody's complained that it looks too much like a standard S3

    Its definitely got the looks but then the cabin kinda lets it down, I would be happy if it had some newer tech inside & electronic handbrake as fedup with manual ones now, maybe new A3 will have got rid of that annoying armrest problem, but we're talking what 2 years now.

    From the pics I agree the cabin doesnt look great, mate of mine has one coming in 4 weeks so will get a run out in that and see for myself.:)
