8V S3 Pics

Just a couple (literally) of pics to get the 8v S3 section off the ground.

With 3 door, sportback and saloon variants and a 300PS 2.0TFSI motor I think these are going to be popular...

oooh loving the leathers

Not that there is anything wrong with it, but just looks like a big A1?

+1 for the seats

That is a problem for me, dont think Ive ever liked an A3 since the Mk1 S3's.  All the rest since then just seem a bit boring/samey.

I have just ordered a red S3 sportback, hopefully we'll have it for ADI in October.

Seats are aweful . . . and still not a proper quattro!

S3 8L's look amazing, still miss mine and still the best S3 in my opinion

I've been most impressed by later generation Haldex. Feels very natual on our 8P A3.

What's proper quattro? Torsen? What about the newer crown-gear cars? Or any mechanical awd?

Transverse will never be proper quattro, especially not with all this modern CO2 b*llocks

Got a phone call today from the dealer, the S3 now has been registered so it's all go for ADI.

The only new shape I've sat in to date was Misano with the red seats, whilst I dislike red leather normally I thought they worked really well

Does yours have the 4th gen Haldex?  I personally didn't like the 3rd gen Haldex on the Mk5 R32.

I think traditionalists will state proper quattros are any with a longitudinal engine.  Torsen=definately, newer centre crown-gear=yup, Q7 transfer box=yup.

Oh, and quattro means four - AWD is a yankie marketing phrase!

We picked up the S3 sportback yesterday and all i can says is WOW!!!
