  6. Major motor downsizing this week - Porka to Golf

    Colin Have you considered investing in some artworks relating to motoring, they are scarce but always sort after. Watercolours of racing cars, Posters of famous meetings etc. You would need to view them as a longer term buy, but you would get plenty of enjoyment from them in the mean time. What happened to your S3 ? I had a Golf 16 valver before the S3 and did over 200k in it, sold it clean and in standard state, not kevinised for £600. and is still going strong RichardH

  10. S3 and Ageism

    Following on Olly's earlier post 'S3 vs the world' does anyone know of any S3 drivers who are over 60 years old, still loving the thrill of speed but hopefully not senile. Nicely mellowed and with experience and perhaps done some proper rallying back in the days of grid references etc like to hear from anyone!!!! old fogey

  12. I Love my S3!!!!!

    [ QUOTE ] With the Revo software the car is awesome! The thing just flies in every gear but i did find it a little hard to drive it tamely cos the boost comes on quite heavy and suddenly. Floyd have you got the 0 to 60 time with the revo on? its interesting that this system can be switch on or off!!!! have you any costings for the revo? have fun with the new car RichardH
  13. New A3 - Prices and Details

    [ QUOTE ] The S3 is not listed with Thatcham at all ! been there myself already, just get the dealer to give you a letter stating what they've told you. Remember Audi UK told me its only Cat 2 [/ QUOTE ] Graham this is what my Audi service dept said.- 'Richard after asking techs they advise that U K spec car have a Thatcham 1 rating .' he did go on to give a caution on imported models and uk specs blah blah !!! RichardH
  14. New A3 - Prices and Details

    [ QUOTE ] Richard, I presume you have 225bhp S3 ?. If so, I would be interested in the outcome of your enquiry. Cheers, R [/ QUOTE ] Robin the technical dept at my local Audi showrooms states that the UK spec S3's have Thatcham 1 alarm ratings. Colin M suggests checking with Thatcham. As long as your insurance co. knows that your car is a 'full UK spec.' Audi S3 they should be able to decide what classification it is. RichardH

    [ QUOTE ] Spot on ScoTTy, nice to see that it comes with a Thatcham 1 security fitted as standard !! Had alot of grief over my S3 which is only Thatcham 2.
