I have had my 59 plate black edition 2.0tdi 140ps a3 for just over 6 months now. I love the car and I love everything vag related. I had been on the hunt for an S3 however I have come to the realisation that for the spec that I am after it is just out of reach for me at the moment whilst I am at university. My car has had a stage 1 remap and is good fun to drive however as I am sure every petrolhead has experienced, I just want more! Basically what I am looking for is a performance petrol with 4wd. The R32 is a car I have always had a soft spot for and the noise that v6 makes is just a thing of beauty which the s3 just cannot contend with. I think the golf would be a nice alternative to the S3. It ticks all the right boxes for me. I am unsure if anyone on here has owned both and can draw a comparison between the 2 beasts? I am going to test drive the golf tomorrow to see what I think and it may take a bit of time/travelling to get the right one. There are obviously some features of my own car that I will miss but will that 3.2 lump win me over? Any thoughts or views are welcome..
