    I've just put my reg into DVLA and it came back 260. Think they've upped the 'robbing'

    I think it's £260 for all manuals pre-2011. S-Tronics & all current year models are £245. Just out of interest (and going OT slightly) does anyone know what Audi did to the manual S3 to get it below 200g/km? Given that CO2 is directly related to MPG it now appears that the fuel consumption for both is identical, when previously the S-Tronic was slightly more economical...

    They probably just set it extra lean for the duration of the test. Dont forget this is not real life, its a bit like testing the MPG on a rolling road with no wind resistance or gradients ( as they do) its just a pie in the sky figure really :)

    Didn't they fit regenerative alternators from a certain date? They would bring down the Co2. Does the S3 have Start / Stop?
