    Agreed, the 8V has the best interior compared to Golf/Seat/Skoda (any generation)

    Thanks, so that a pre-facelift A3 against a MK7 GTI. I am less motivated for the test drive now, but will still contact my local dealer and try that car above.

    Audi A3 Sport or S Line suspension compared to Golf GTI?

    Thanks, that is great info, exactly what I am looking for, will PM you if thats OK. Ah, this forum doesn't seem to support PMs. Some more questions, what do you think of the performance between the MK7 and 8V facelift, on paper there is only 30PS between them.

    What about this one? https://usedcars.audi.co.uk/usedcar/audi/a3/a3/petrol/manual/150bhp-front-wheel-drive-blue-1_GBR004571143554.htm It claims to have "sports suspension" and its has the normal S line 18" wheels? (its also about 15 miles from me)

    Audi A3 Sport or S Line suspension compared to Golf GTI?

    This is what confuses me, reviews both professional and individual say S Line is way too hard. Then some people say its too soft! The S3 would be great but I am discounting it for slightly higher costs, running costs and my current GTI has 210PS which is enough.

    Audi A3 Sport or S Line suspension compared to Golf GTI?

    Interesting! Even the S Line with its 15mm drop might feel like a limo compared to my current 2011 MK6.

    Audi A3 Sport or S Line suspension compared to Golf GTI?

    Sorry, I am just after a comparison if anyone has driven both cars. I am looking to move from a MK6GTI to a 2014-ish S Line or Sport. Half the reviews and posts say the S Line on 18"s is too hard and half say something like "its planted and good" I can cope with the MK6 which is medium...

    Audi A3 Sport or S Line suspension compared to Golf GTI?

    Hello, has anyone swapped from a MK6 Golf GTI to an A3 Sportback Sport or S Line 1.8 TFSI and can tell me if the S Line has harder suspension please? I am looking at 2014 S Line cars with the 1.8 petrol with their 15mm drop or the newer facelift Sport models with the 2.0 190 PS engine that have...
