    Agree completely with the above!

    The "highly tuned R32" bit did give me a bit of a giggle - i expect it would run to (tens of?) thousands of £££s to turbocharge an R32?

    Bang for buck give me an S3 anyday.

    In fact I was looking at R32s before I bought my K1 - and I picked the K1, even with its grim interior lol

    Going from an oil burner to a R32...hmmm. you think the insurance will knock holes in your pocket, wait till you start quenching it's thirst.
    I think the Audi 3.2 engine sound intoxicating with a nice exhaust system. .especially if its in a convertible. Almost had me a 3.2 TT. Save your money to oneside for a nice little revy Audi 4 pot with cheap easy engine mods.

    You complain that you cant put the power down, yet want to increase the power?

    Are you not being a little stupid?

    Invest in an LSD before increasing the power any more, or stop spending and save for a beautiful S3

    before my s3 had a astra 1.9cdti tuned to about 200ish (rounded it up) was horrible couldnt put power down wet round corners little bit of power understear horrible,
    I drove my misses car other day in the wet you do forget how good the s3 handles the wet roads, without you noticing just seems effortless lovely car to drive.

    Having the a3 3.2 I'd say go for it, it'll be easier to sell than a modified diesel when you want to go for a turbo. If you do save up for an s3 make sure you save enough to at least remap it as it's not overly impressive in standard form (I used to have 90s jap turbos so a turboed car with 10 years more development being slower is unimpressive). The r32 being not very tunable saves you money in that respect so you can save for an s3 (plus mods)
