Well that didnt last long, the car had some positive points, but oh my goodness, it was dull as dish water to drive. For a supposed premium hot hatch i found it really disappointing, it was great if all you cared about was the traffic light g.p, and a good 0 - 60 time, but for me that just doesnt cut it. Ive always loved cars that communicate with you and cars that handle great, and im sorry to say in that regard the S3 is well below par. Show it a corner with any kind of enthusiasm and it rewards you with no feedback at all from anywhere, its just completely numb, it did nothing to ignite any of my senses at all. And dont get me started on the understeer, initial turn in inst too bad, but try getting back on the power as you would think you should be able to in a hot hatch and it just understeers and understeers some more. It needs a quaife lsd dropping in the front, that would transform it. You would think an S3 with quattro would be able to lay its power exiting a corner but most front drive hot hatches are in another league. This is going to sound stupid, but compared to a fiesta st etc, the S3 is about as exciting as being a passenger on a bus. I considered lightly modifying it to improve its handling, but this is a 35 grand Audi S3 with 310 ps and a 7 speed dsg, it should be fun straight from the factory. How can ford make a fiesta ten times more fun for half the money. Audi has lost my business for good im afraid with all the predictable, understeering, boring cars. So long.
