Its fun to drive because its so light. Only 140 hp, but the torque is 240 lb/ft!! pulls like crazy, perfect for city "agile" driving. Never been a "hot hatch" guy but I'm really liking it. I may get a tune and bump it to 180 hp; 300lb/ft torque. Sways a bit on hard corners, but I'll be solving that with coilovers later this month Cool little car.
People always look at me funny when I tell them. But, if the A3 was Rear wheel drive i would be driving one of those rather than my M3.

Cool cars indeed.
