Mikem, the S3 is Oli's car not mine. I would love to have a go in one as they look a fun hot hatch. The A3 range is going through what looks like a minor mid life nip and tuck so it will be interesting to see the update at the end of the year.

I have the standard seats, in crimsen and black leather, as the RS$ seats dont work well with rear seat access - not good with kids!!!

Go and get a proper drivers car, and give your dad his 335D back.........

Give it back? WTF are you on... He can buy it back, but i dont want to sell it

I aint defending anything, JUsT proving how quick it is.. if you dont like me post then go away.


You are some sort of old man moaner aint ya

Audi are going performance diesel route. Autocar report future RS models of a diesel variety.
