    Hi,

    I'm looking to potentially sell my A4 and have been looking at the S3 sportback.

    Does anyone live in Reading that would be willing to take me for a spin, especially if you have a remap? I'm stage 2+ in the A4 but wondered what the s3 would be like...

    Beer tokens would obviously be on offer :)

    Had a look online but are a distance away, especially any modified ones...

    Thanks
    Darren

    A mapped one? I think razza1 wants to know what Stage2+ in an S3 is like.

    Even a stage 1 to be honest, money I'm looking at spending could be a higher mileage stage 2 or a lower mileage std one, which would then only afford me a remap without the hardware

    I think you should definitely test drive a standard one before getting in a remapped one. Just so you can appreciate the difference more so than anything.

    Just had a look at reading don't have anything earlier than a 2013 model, I'm looking at earlier than that so wouldn't be a true test.
    Forbzeeee, where are you? I work in theale if that's any closer?

    I'm not fussed about the difference, it's what it performs like to be honest. I'm always hungry for more, have had a 400 BHP supra before so missing that power still tbh.
    I know I want a modded one, but even a std one will give me an idea if I like the overall vibe of the car before pursuing further.

    When's best for you, in the evenings, or are you around Friday afternoon at all?
    Are you on a switchable map at all?
