Hi, I have been very lucky to be given an S3 on test for 5 days. I think the car is great and it is surely the best car I have ever driven. However, fuel consumption is quite poor. So far, I seem to average between 22 and 24 mpg on any trips, even if it is a mixture of town/motorways. Tonight, I was driving on a motorway in 6th gear at 80 mph, and the DIS was still showing around 23 mpg! Since those numbers are quite different from the Audi official ones, I am wondering if there is something wrong with the test car (the car has done around 1600 miles). Apart from consumption, nothing else to complain about. Ride, handling, engine are fantastic, and the car on loan looks great (black, black grille, black rear windows, sat nav etc...). If it was giving me 25-30 mpg, then I would order one right now, but with 22 mpg (and petrol price set to get to £1.5/litre by the end of the year, according to some experts), it will be expensive to run!
