    Hi all,

    Just picked up my 57' S3 and after just a few hours i am well impressed.It reminds me of my old mk5 golf gti,but everything is 10 times better.Power delivery is strong and smooth through the rev range,no flat spots,goes like stink,and it handles like its on rails even in the rain.I was expecting it to be good but it has exceeded all expectations,it brings a huge smile to my face even though its replaced a RS4.Bring on more power:drool:

    I'm glad you're enjoying it! You really can't beat the traction afforded by the Quattro system, the confidence it gives is very satisfying. It makes you feel like 500bhp wouldn't challenge the traction available at the tyres!

    Yes the S3 is great fun , get a map done and you will really open the car up , i have had mine for a while now and fancy a change so it will be going on sale soon.

    it is by far the best car i have owned .
