Bought an S3!

Hi guys,

As some of you know, I've been running an A3 TDi 170 Quattro for the last 10 months and I've really enjoyed owning it. As usual with me, I get bored quickly though, and the desire to drive something with more performance as my daily driver got the better of me.

As I said, I've enjoyed having an A3 as it suits my daily commute through narrow country lanes, so decided to look at S3's to satisfy my craving for more power......

Anyway, traded the A3 for an S3 today and really pleased with it so far - much better suspension and brakes, really goes well for "just" 260bhp and got 34mpg on the 250 mile drive home.

Already got plans for more power, Milltek, new wheels etc etc....

Not the "new" new shape (with the LED DRL's), but a 57 plate 8P

Welcome back to S/RS ownership Paul

8P is the new shape... photo's are required please

I had a 57plate S3 and loved it, Flat bottom steering wheel. I found it hard to drive smoothly though! My only other point was people thought it was an S-line, due to its understated looks and lack of interior distinguishing markings!

I think Audi could of made it visually alot more different to the run of the mill A3's

Have to say though, my favourite car I have ever had. I would go back to one if I had the dosh!

Quality How is it to drive? Torque ect?

Your probably not interested, and I'm not wishing to hijack your thread, but this was my S3




H8CAK

Nice!
micalee

The seats had silver inserts not white as it looks in the picture!

Anyway, thats its, I'm off, this is RSPaul's thread and I am really chuffed for you. Enjoy that turbo whistling - I have to put up with my V8!! Hard life eh!

Kind regards

Lee

Nice one Paul, don't tell me you want the same power as my Golf???
RSPaul

Cheers guys, I'll post up some pics and give some feedback once I've driven it some more.

Micalee - nice example you had, looks good in black with the privacy glass. Mine has got the RS4 style bucket seats and the flat-bottom wheel, plus a load of other nice options  

Hi Mihnea - I'll be in touch soon about a re-map, but the full 420bhp may have to wait a bit longer....

Glad to see your back in a S/RS model again!

Looks like the TDI just wasn't enough!

Best of luck with the plans you have for it!

i knew it would`nt be long paul until you got back in an S/RS car ! i test drove an S3 before i got my RS4 and they do go very well . i think with just a remap you can get 310 bhp but i think your go further then that !

A few pictures from the advert......







I don't like the wheels at all (700 option   ) so need to find another more suitable set. Quite like the BBS CH's, or failing that the 19" RS4 reps on JamieKP's car look good I think. Maybe in titanium finish?

Spec. list is as follows:

DVD Sat-Nav (RNS-E)
Bluetooth Phone-prep
Bucket Seats
Flat bottom steering wheel (multi-function)
Heated front AND rear seats!
Privacy glass
Auto Air Re-circulation
Auto lights
Auto wipers
Adaptive Xenons
Bose Hi-Fi
Cruise control
I-Pod dock
Black optics
20 spoke alloys
Front centre armrest
Ski-hatch and rear centre armrest

Think that's all!

Looks good!

Due to a downturn in my business and a necessary re-think on my cars, the S3 is now up for sale.    Quite gutted as its a cracking little car.
