    nope, not against a standard one, I've had some fun in the past and it wasn't as bad as I thought but unless their asleep you'll loose and it won't just be by a car length!

    Is it a standard S3 ??

    Rain would make some odds against a chipped S3 i reckon :eyebrows:
    As a previous BMW driver i know how sketchy my 328 sport (with LSD) was in the wet - tail wagging etc. (good fun but not if you wanna go quick) Don't get me wrong i know how quick the M3 is in comparisson, but on the twisties i reckon the sure footedness of the S3 in the wet could keep it at bay (when chipped)?

    I had a bit of fun with an M3 CSL the other night, he left me for dead off a roundabout on a dual carrige way but then he bottled it at just over a ton as the roads were a bit greasy, thats when the S3 came into its own!!!

    Woah! I nearly showed my BM the wrong side of a hedge a few times and that was about 110hp down on his, he needs to be real careful in the wet stuff. And he'll need a nappy if it snows!!
