As I approach the 6 year point, its time part ways with the S3 and try a different brand of car . the VAG experience down-under ( plus 5 years with a GTI).has been a mix of good and bad. The recent expensive repairs and up yours attitude of Audi, made it time to say goodbye. I've enjoyed this forum, and all the various posts, I would like to especially thank some of the long time members , assyo06. Muttley 75, Snake Pliskin, Bristle Hound and pburv for their contributions to the forum. As to what I'm going too, I was after something with a little bit more driver involvement, and budget constraints, so the choice is a Renault RS300 Trophy.
