Used to date a girl who owned an R32 while my S3 was still standard. Couldn't believe how sluggish the R32 felt to drive coming from the standard S3. Personally, I'd have one in my 'dream' garage purely for the noise, but in the real world I'd take a GTI, Golf R or S3 any day of the week.
my s3 was quicker than my mates r32(just by a ball hair) so why people saying mapped s3??? dont need to map them for that really
