ownly, I envy you! I assume you got it in NZ, not Canada, right?

If the S3 was available here, I wouldn't own an Impreza. I did get the S4, which doesn't handle anywhere near as well as my modified Impreza, at less than 100mph anyway. I'm convinced that Audi is aiming more at Lexus than at BMW with it's U.S. model line. What a bunch of goosh-mobiles!

Someone was selling a federalized S3 out on the west coast a few months back. I read about it on Audiworld, but it was an ex-press car that had likely been banged on for it's entire life.

Ownly, you gotta get some video from inside the car, with sound, so we can hear that twin turbo whine.

At least it looks better than a GTi. What's that About handling better than your RS? You just come from a pub? I've seen your mods... that RS should handle better. Maybe you fudged your mod installations

Nice car, btw

Nice ownly. I'm thinking I might go for an Audi also -- have to wait and see what Subaru decides to do to us. Whatssup with the B4? Too slow? Did you have a chance to drive one?

Pretty Sweet. The practicality of a Civic and the performance you'd come to expect from Germany.

Fast car... I drove an S4 here in Illinois, USA. Very fast. The RS4 is even quicker.

Cool My First Turbo Car !

well here it is. . .

i finally made up my mind and bought a car

an Audi S3... for now it's 250bhp with the optional AudiSport chip (210 stock) and it will be 295bhp when i recieve my Oettinger power kit.

i'll tell you all, i've tried the S4 i didn't like it at all, the Legacy B4 was not quick enought, i almost got an EVO 5 but it was less refined than a Civic inside, and the Impreza was just plain and i wanted something luxurius and fun to drive...

it handles a million times better than my RS with usd$9000 of modifications and it is still stock

I love it

here are some bad pics from last night when i got it... it was dark and raining but i'll have some good ones soon
