    As I was awoken at silly o’clock by my kids again I thought I’d write this.

    With my S3 obsession has come the reading of many reviews, and so I thought I’d put a few of the best ones in a post and then anyone else interested (and perhaps some potential new S3 owners) get an easier job of reading through them.

    Anyway see what you think and drop some replies with any favourites you have that I’ve missed and I can edit them in!

    2014 Audi S3 review - YouTube

    Interesting to hear them say 'It's a shame we don't get the Manual transmission in Canada because it really is wonderful'.

    Glad I've chosen manual ...

    I think a lot of yanks and Canadians are very used to auto boxes and those who drive performance cars and consider themselves proper drivers really like manuals, perhaps even more than in Europe now where we seem to be going the other way!

    It would be great if this became a sticky (and perhaps one for the A3 too). When I was doing research this list would have been very helpful.

    A good idea, I don't know how to do that though, assume a moderator needs to do it?

    I watched it yesterday... red S3 sliding/cornering on all 4.. Maybe it was copyright.
