    S-tronic mpg on your S3???

    Looking forward to getting my hands on one then! Yeah I hear the residuals on them are great which might compensate for mpg. Found a sprint blue in London, it's only 7 months old full spec bar recaros. Only thing I would love to change would be the mirrors, I much prefer the big chunky ones on...

    S-tronic mpg on your S3???

    Ben H, great review!thanks for that. How do you find the handling compared with your 197? That's the one thing I enjoy the most is the chuckability of the clio. One last thing to ask about is my lingering question of Recaroor not to Recaro, again my clio is fitted with them and I love them to...

    Fair enough, if I'm in no hurry I usually drive for economy anyway. But as long as I can achieve the same as or better than the 197 then il be fairly happy. You guys with stage 1 remaps, who have you used, to what gains, and importantly did you bother informing your insurance of just an ECU...

    S-tronic mpg on your S3???

    Great thanks, youre beginning to fill me with confidence that I might get some reasonable returns from the s-tronic. It was a cracking drive! Excuse my ignorance but what's a stage 2 involve? What would be the stage 1?

    S-tronic mpg on your S3???

    Hi guys I'm new to the forum and the world of Audi. Been to test drive a new S3 S-tronic this afternoon. Safe to say I know that's going to be the choice gearbox in the future. Just wondering what everyone's MPG findings are across the board? 2/3 of my mileage will be motorway and really...
