Hi gang. Managed to get some time driving this weekend and up to around 1200 miles now. Started to wind the motor out now to the redline where appropriate. 60 comes up so quickly ( yeah I know around 4.5 secs) and the braking is really impressive. Really liking the suspension set up - the right balance between ride quality and control. Totally different feel to the S3 this engine is so flexible, so pleased I went with my gut instinct to go ahead with the purchase. i do see this car as a keeper as the new shape A3 really doesn't do anything for me. they look like an A1 a4 hybrid.
