    A question for debate. I've got a revo'd S3 and my friend has a std 3.2 and were swapping cars for a day next week to answer this question. Mine is barely faster in a straight line but much punchier low/mid range. Top end is too close to call.

    Interesting, when we were at the Ring a few weeks ago, there was a very nice, subtly modded 3.2 and I thought "Got to get me one of those!!"...

    Mines fairly quick for an S3 but he came past me like I was stood still so maybe he was S/C'd or T/C...

    Damn nice looker though in the S-Line.
     
  4. Surely it would have to be supercharged to be "that" much faster. I test drove one before I had my S3 chipped, and was a bit disspointed. It was too soft and didn't feel any quicker than my S3, DSG is cool though.

    I would assume that the 6 cylinder would be smoother than the 4 pot.
