Hi folks, Ive swapped my S3 for a BMW 340i touring shadow edition....Its a pre reg and had 28 miles on it, got about a 20% discount and is the most expensive car Ive bought so far. It has everything on it that I need, plus I bought a winter tyre and wheel set to go with it....got back into the golf, thats the game not the car so went for the 3 litre with a decent boot ! Very smooth indeed and it so different driving a rear wheel car, very different to the M135i I had a few years ago, different engine, and it was a manual gearbox. Must admit the S3 was a bit cramped, but I did enjoy the pace of it and all the haters, used to get a lot of attention... although the S tronic gearbox didnt feel like it was going to last that long. Car was a bit whiney especially in sport mode. But generally a nice car, just didnt suit my needs anymore. Really enjoyed the three S3's I had although they sometimes came with a bit of trouble, they are bloody quick cars for the money, in an ideal world I'd still have at least one of them.
