im excited for you, i really wish i could have been able to afford the A3. i love the body style, and when that car is lowered it's just pure sex.
Thanks dude. Yeah, buying used is the way to go most of the time, imho, cos I wouldn't want to buy a new one honestly.

I will let you know on the wheels - i may just throw them on at home tonight in the garage when i get home from the dealer. You would want the stock wheels and tires? not sure if i should get rid of them, as I had to buy your Detroits for a reason , lol (for trading in the GTI)

the S4 is my dream.

the A3 could be my reality.
The S4 was my dream too, but I would have been axe murdered by my wife. It's just a lot of money to spend. I have no idea how the K04 A3 will compare to the S4 honestly. The used A3's are a great pickup, but it is hard to find the 2.0T with quattro sometimes.

hahaha.. remember.. buying used savs tons!!

The first corvette was "only" $20K, btw. Just gotta be a good shopper/deal finder.

I would have had the GTI 2 years come August. As for the S4 comparo again, I just want the A3 to be quite quick, utilize the DSG for track days (and very glad the brakes are a direct swap-over), and have a nice DD that gets decent mileage while having AWD. I think it fits the bill well.

thanks^ looking at dp's now. Looks like Golf R dp's should fit it, so lots of research to do now, as if I stay with stock dp, APR says it could be robbed of around 50-60hp their dp for it is like $839 tho - dang!

** edit - aha, BB has one for much cheaper

Ah, you did what I'm planning on doing also! A little more room, 4 doors, and AWD!

Watching!

Interested to see how you like this compared to the GTI. I wish I would have known to consider the A3 before I purchased mine. It didn't even cross my mind.

Does the 2.0t have the variable timing or is it the same as the TSI engine?
