    Ah right fair enough, hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprised then. I’m sure it’s not quite competition for an RS3’s sound but should be an improvement on the S3 :grinning:

    If going brand new I’d agree it’s a big price difference, but for some reason with used prices the S5 seems to fair badly.

    I’ve been offered £27,500 for my S3 which is 20 months old with 9k miles and I could switch to a S5 with similar or lower miles on an 67/18 plate for around another 5/6k I reckon. Spec is pretty good as standard on a S5 the only thing that would be a must have is virtual cockpit to be honest.

    Yeah, I looked at a used one maybe a year ago, which was specced up to the max but my S3 was only a year old and I suddenly realised I was being daft and dropped the idea.

    Agreed. Ive had 4 pots, a 3 pot, 6 pots, but the nicest sounding engine of all was the 5 pot in the old Audi 2.3 Coupe. That burble was just beautiful especially around the 2-3 krpm region.

    I can hear the wife's S3 from the top of the street and when it starts up it sounds great imho. I did own a RS3 so been spoiled for sound but for a 4 pot the S3 does ok.

    The old school vtecs were better than the newer one.
    Had the 1.8 in the civic and the 2.2 accord type r.
    S2000 was the best with it 2 stage vtec with a different note at each stage.

    I had an ep3 import and it was a wicked little B road basher for its time, and if you kept it in vtec it was ace on the back roads
