    Yes, it comes with the 19” wheels. Standard on the saloon models.

    Me too! Well worth having, you can feel it when you change driving modes. Have a read of this:

    As well as the info above, Drive Select is the section explaining how the settings work.
    Efficiency is the work of the devil in a car like an S3 lol
    The Individual setting allows you to tailor the various bits to suit your needs. I like a lot of Dynamic settings but have the suspension on Comfort or Auto for the roads I drive on.

    I use the Individual setting also, with all set to Dynamic apart from suspension and gearbox which are both set to Auto. The latter if set to Dynamic holds onto gears far too long for my liking when using a gentle right foot, which will have a negative effect on fuel consumption. Its easy to temporarily drop it into Sport should I feel the need. :D

    Mag-ride is a compulsory upgrade if you opt for 19” wheels on the Sportback (can’t comment on other variants), and well worth it IMO.

    I’ve driven a mates S3 on 18”s (without mag-ride), and genuinely believe the ride is better, more comfortable, less bouncy/crashy on 19”s with mag. Counter-intuitive, but bigger wheels with mag = better ride
