    I've said pretty much exactly the same re the veyron and power/drag top speed before.

    Yes destroyed is a very overused term

    I agree but not really fair to compare tuned 320 bhp S3's with std 3.2s either..:)

    Having said that I did feel pretty smoked, if not 'destroyed' by Haz1's tuned S3, with another 80 odd bhp, at our Glasgow meet just there.
    ALso I can safely say now with the right exhaust 2.0TFSIs do also sound great too, and for a few hundred will blow a v6 away!

    Once upon a time when I was younger it would have been an interesting gig, but given some of the complexities of the new beasts I wouldn't dare. Even tuners are struggling to work to create successful mods for these temperamental beasts, I just want a fast car with a warranty!

    They do suffer from a certain amount of lag yes. This is very noticable if you drive a 3.2 normally due to there sometimes over sensitive throttle responce at low revs!

    Haa haa this one will just go one as S3 drivers will say they map it to get rid of lag and get more power and so it goes on!!!!

    Maybe one day someone will bolt that turbo onto the 3.2! All that power and the V6 roar!!! haa haa

    hehe all this all it needs is a re-map seems too simple...... Especially after a few months after mapping alot of the S3 guys say what clutch/fuel pump/intake/exhaust do I need hehe.

    Sarah have you looked at Storm Developments site? They are doing A3 3.2 V6 Turbo kits hmmmmmmmmmm DO IT!

    I went to uni with the guy who runs Storm (Andy). We house shared in Headington, Oxford in 1996.

    Their Rotrex supercharger conversion on the 3.2 is fantastic, BUT, 'STOP PRESS' they are moving towards 2.0T conversions as that's where the money seems to be. Easy BHP for easy money!!!

    Yup, driven Golf VR6 (Mk3), Golf R32 (MK4/5), A3 3.2 V6 (before committing to purchase S3), and S3.

    I'll conceded the S3 lacks soul, but allows you to wring the most potential off the platform in my opinion for sensible wonga. I've spent under £3k on performance based mods and I'm ball-parking 350bhp. To get that kind of shove and handling balance from a 3.2 A3 how much would I need to spend (noting all the unsprung suspension on the S3 is lighter, the engine is lighter etc...).

    Again, horses for courses, but it wasn't a decision I needed to spend long making.

    Thing is J all this rubbish about big old lumps up front gets a bit boring...It only has 1 pot more than you RS and remember the VAG V6 is one of the lightest and most compact V6's around. The real problem is when it goes wrong...I spoke to Audi tonight and we are up to £5k now trying to sort a small misfire out on mine. Any more and it will be a write off at 42k miles...
