Mk1 Audi S3 been replaced but still has the goods

AdvantagesBargain to be had, Quality and Power, Prestige but not a bore

DisadvantagesExpensive Insurane, Running costs,

"The Mk1 Audi S3 built from 99 till 2003 and based on the A3 model it is the flagship of that range. there were 2 variants the 210bhp (99-02) and the 225nhp (02-03). Both Had the same 1.8 liter straight 4cylinder Turbocharged engine, the second had a variable valve timing to increase the bhp output. Manufacturer stated a 0-62 of 6 seconds.

Audi S3

AdvantagesFast, sporty but subtle, great handling

DisadvantagesFuel economy, lots of abused cars out there

"I own a 2002 S3 225bhp. In a few words - fast, good mid range torque, sporty look without having the boy racer look. It's a classy car which is quicker than most on the road. The only down points, and this is being picky is the fuel economy, noticeable turbo lag (especially when more than 2 people in the car) and the high service costs if you take it to audi. I take it to a vw-audi specialist though and they're fine. Prices are good now and ..." Read review

Audi s3 2001

Advantagesexcellent solid package with lots of credability

Disadvantagesmabye not wild enough for some

"I bought my audi s3 in january, so after 6 months of ownership I`d thought I would write a review. Cost of the s3 was expensive compared to most other hot hatches I paid £13k for a 2001 with 34,000 miles with full service history. Options wise the list is almost endless you can have the usual metallic paint, leather, sunroof, armrest. The s3 options are chrome mirror covers and lower side mouldings, Bose stereo upgrade heated seats, sat nav ..." Read review

2007 Audi S3

Advantages Performance, handling, 4 wheel drive

DisadvantagesExpensive, rear leg room

"...have just collected my 2007 Audi S3....in one word "amazing". The cost price of the car was approx £29000, which to be honest is overly expensive, but you get what you pay for. 265bhp, 4 wheel drive, 2.0 litre turbo engine and 0-60mph in just over 5 seconds. I ordered the car in Dolphin Grey and added minimal extras such as Bluetooth, upgraded BOSE stereo since there is a lot of equipment as standard - full leather, heated seats, sports suspension, ..."

Fab car

AdvantagesFast, fun, great drive!

DisadvantagesGetting into the back seats

"...in March this year, but Audi had taken the S3 off the market - ARGHH - and the updated model wasn't due out for some time. (We ended up getting a TT instead - still Audi). We test drove several alternatives when deciding on the S3 and none of them was a patch on it so If you've got the money (not quite sure how much they are now) you won't be disappointed. ..."

Rollin' on doves

Advantagesspeed, looks, comfort

DisadvantagesRadio and petrol costs

"I recently had my license withdrawn for 3 months due to an unfortunate drive home, after the pub, the following week my brother brought a £27'000 S3, Arrhhhhh. This is why i have decided to write a review based on the experiences of the passenger, they always get left out. This car when i first stepped into it was the best experience i have ever had in a car, behind that of the new BMW 7-series. The seats are extremely comfortable, being that ..." Read review

Audi s3

Advantagesamazing speed and loveley to drive

DisadvantagesHigh running costs

"I have owned my Audi s3 for the last two months now and it just keeps getting better and better the performance is amazing and the drive is very responsive the interior of the Audi s3 is full leather with electric recaro bucket seats and make driving the car even better as you are held in place all of the time. They do tend to be quiet expensive to run av 30mpg on the motorway but as little as 10 if your driving it hard. Anyone buying one might want ..." Read review
