Audi S3 Owner Car Reviews

2011 Audi S3 Sportback Review

In the first week, I took the car to a tuner in Mona Vale where they installed a stage one ECU upgrade with an S-Tronic (DSG) upgrade. These modifications cost me less than $2500 and moves the car from 188kW and 330Nm to 239kW and 450Nm with the engine ECU remap. The transmission remap sees the cars launch control move from 3200 rpm to 4100 rpm and also allows Tiptronic (manual mode) to rev without an automatic cut off at redline...

2014 Audi S3 Review

Audi's current competitor in the hot hatchback genre of cars is a worthy adversary for the Mercedes A45 AMG and the BMW M135i. Although the A45 has greater performance going from 0-100 kmh in 4.6 seconds and the Audi and the BMW tied at 4.9 seconds which is no slouch. The S3 has a 2.0 tfsi (turbocharged) engine that is the same in a VW Golf R, which means it's going to be pretty good...

2013 Audi S3 Review

Ridiculous performance meets refinement. (Thanks to the feedback that has helped me improve this review) It's difficult to pinpoint when I became a 'hot hatch' guy...

2014 Audi S3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

After browsing the market for quite some time, I had decided on my next car - a bright red, Mercedes CLA 45 AMG. When the salesman turned the key and I heard the baby-racer spring into life, it was love. I had put down my deposit just before Christmas 2013, which meant an October 2014 delivery. Which got pushed back to January 2015, and then May 2015...

2014 Audi S3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

I've only had the car for a week, so still learning all the features. One little annoyance is that it obviously favours Apple products, which I'd never touch. The usual problem is that there's no USB port to download music to the built-in storage. However, it takes SSD memory cards, so I download music to my camera, then put the SSD card in the car - nuisance - I don't know why they don't include a USB port...

2007 Audi S3 Review

Great little second hand premium purchase. Great fuel economy for the performance average about 9L per 100 with a good amount of spirited driving. With plenty of power on tap when you sink the right foot in, but nowadays with new turbo technology some people will get a little annoyed with the turbo lag as nothing really happens till 2500 rpm...

2013 AUDI S3 SPORTBACK S-TRONIC LE Review

I just sold my 2009 Lexus IS F and am quite pleased with my new purchase. The engine feels very strong and the all-wheel-drive traction is great. There is a large amount of understeer, however, especially when pushing it hard on track. Overall I like this car.
