The mapped s3 was faster than the 335d? Interesting :-) I take it that was a non mapped 335d?
Did you have the DLG gearbox

Have to be more fun to be worth dropping so much in mpg

I went from a mapped 335 to the S3. Allround, you could chuck the S3 at anything, and it just flew!!! 4wd! I think the power to weight ratio is in the S3s favour however the 4wd saps a bit, but it's haldex so not full-time 4wd. But chuck it down some twisties........ I compared it back to back with a 2007 targa 4S and it was faster!

And my 335 averages 29 as most of my driving is local so not much of a drop.
