    Swapped my A4 this week for this, and pretty chuffed with it to say the least! Alot quicker than I expected as standard, and goes like a scalded cat! Had a B5 S4 in the past, and this feels as keen as upto speed, the in-gear in the S4 would have it I think.
    Plans are for a CAI & Miltek, and some winter wheels. Get it pretty bad round 'ere, so the quattro will be put to some use. Uniroyal winter tyres were good on a 2wd so looking forward to the snow!!
    The previous owner must have cleaned it with a brillopad, the swirl marks are shocking, made worse by it being black. Will be having a paint correction at somepoint soon.

    Really wishing i'd gone to Dub Fiction near us, the cars i've seen in town are to die for! RS6s, Sport quattros, and a host of VAG classics, Valvers, MK1s etc etc!

    Update. Going from an A4 to a 3-door S3 I do miss the space, but, 95% of the time it's just me and it's perfect!
    S-Tronic - My first auto petrol, and I love it. D-mode is great around town, S-mode is insane around the A/B roads.
    Haldex quattro - My first non-torsen quattro, and so far in some slippy and gravelly wet roads, zero wheelspin and loss of grip. Does want to understeer, but to be expected.
    Going back to a black car, I must be mad. Poorboys products are going some way to undoing what the previous owner and Audi have done to the paint, and a quick wash and detail today has it back looking fresh!
    Love the way it sounds and goes, but will be having an exhaust/CAI on soon :)

    Great looking car matt.

    Sounds like the type of previous owner that my golf had some time back, that was also black and the state of the paint was terrible.
