    Sold the A3!!!

    SUMMARY Haldex/4WD is always working 10-15% minimum torque , the faster you go the more torque is transferd to the rear axel. Under front wheel slippage/spin , up to 100% torque can in theory be sent to the rear. I had the new Leon Cupra 240-260bhp Std , it span like mad , TC light going...

    Why did YOU buy an S3..?

    If you've come from a 300bhp Impreza the S3 is gonna feel sluggish in speed and handling. The S3 8L and 8P are not the last word in fun , speed and handling, there are better cars for the money! The S3 is a great all round package , decent poke and handling a luxury cabin with nice toys ...

    porsche carrera and ST whooping

    When i was thinking of down grading from a 1 month old MK 2 Cupra i was looking at the MKIV R32 and the 8L S3 for around 13k , anyway i think i settled on the S3 for the tunning side of the 1.8T lump and in Manchester MKIV R32's are driven by bad bhoys!!! :angrymod: I went to the local dealers...

    Anyone put an S3 up against a Mk5 Golf GTI?

    No it isn't , being called mate by somebody who doesn't know you , is the other person trying to be polite and civil. No worries , i won't be calling you mate again as you don't understand or apreciate manners. p

    Anyone put an S3 up against a Mk5 Golf GTI?

    No one has mentioned STI's in this thread mate. As you've brought it up...... Yes the new one is a GOOD car and will beat a S3 on the track and in a drag......but IMHO they look nasty , a T-reg 1.6 Ford Focus with Lexus lights and wheels the size of marbles! p
