2001 Audi S3 from UK and Ireland
Power is nothing without control, and the S3 has it all
I've only owned the S3 for 3 months, and the only problem is that when I shut the drivers door, it still tells me it's open. This happens when it feels like it, and seems to happen more when the weather is warmer. Sometimes I have to shut the door several times, and if I'm on the outside it has to be shut properly in order for the interior light to go out, and more importantly, the alarm to be set. Will get it fixed at the next service, at a cost, but I'm wondered if it was something I might be able to sort out myself.
The 6 year old S3 is a great car and feels expensive. The leather is nice and the car still smells new. It handles well and the power is smooth.
My previous car was an Impreza which had similar performance and handling, but a crazy insurance premium. The S3 came in at exactly half, and I didn't have to have a tracker device fitted either.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
