Fantastic motoring from day one... handling and rapid response if needed at the lights... good on fuel.
Services are just terrible. They wanted £550 for a service with the plugs being changed... I ' m keeping my Audi S3 for many a year to come so take it to a trusted garage and only pay a third for the service using all genuine Audi parts... lastly... much better than the golf r32, I ' ve had one.
Much more sexy looking than the new shape s3.... the germans aint all that bad after all. (read more)

I have owned a year now, it is the 210 version what matters is the torque which is the same as the 225, and pulls quite well. Have it all standard, appart from forge split R dump valve, quite safe to use and its adjustable. Its classy and sporty combined, it holds its value, less common than your regular VW. Therefore slightly unique. (read more)

Where do I start? Well performance wise it uses the same 1.8 turbo 225bhp found in its cheaper cousin the Seat Leon Cupra R, but the Audi has the quattro system and therefore a far better grip in the dry but even better in the rain. It's quicker than the Cupra R - 0-60 for the cupra is 6.8sec and the s3 is 6.4sec, even though the Audi is slightly smaller it's a heavier car than the Cupra R - this puts the S3 with cars like the Astra VXR. The VXR has 15bhp more than the S3 evan though it uses... (read more)

The Audi S3 Quattro 225 PS is a generally well put together car. I had the BHP increased to 290BHP at 25,000 miles and have currently covered 65,000 miles. Fuel consumption is very good as I don't use the power very often so I tend to get 35-39MPG.
Would I buy another Audi - yes - but for now I'm quite happy. (read more)

I used to drive my ex girlfriend's S3 all the time which is one of the reasons why I've just bought one myself. I have driven a lot of quick cars but the S3 is different. It goes quickly but gives you confidence that it knows what its doing. I have taken this car to 140 and my ex had it to 150 on the way back from France one time.
I love everything about this car. The interior, the exterior, the performance, what else do you need? It's fairly reliable. You get a hell of a lot of car for... (read more)

Interesting that Which have just voted the Audi TT as one of the most un-reliable cars around. It gave it a 1 in 4 chance of breaking down based on readers surveys. The AudiS3 has the same running gear. (read more)

I'm just coming up to the end of my first year with my Audi S3 (225). It's simply been the best year driving, ever. This much fun should quite simply be illegal, and I'm sure if the Government knew they'd put a stop to it!
Since picking the car up in Germany last year it's not missed a beat. Covering an ample 19,000 miles as easily as treacle down your chin. The only problem I've had with the car (other than a piece of lorry tire on the motorway) was an over tightened screw holding the... (read more)

I have covered over 17,000 miles in 10 months using the Audi S3 coupe and have enjoyed every moment. The car is very well equipped and is comfortable to drive. The appearance is understated but very butch in design. Having previously owned a Porsche Boxster, I was surprised to discover that the handling characteristics are materially better in the S3, providing a smoother ride at speed giving you more confidence to go faster in high speed turns. The brakes are a little snappy although this... (read more)
