Nice welcome Marc. Both great cars I had a 2003 E46 M3 myself. I would imagine that an AWD S3 would suit the Canadian weather better than the RWD E46.

Hey everyone I just got my 2015 S3 a couple days ago. My older brother made me fall in love with cars, however I am new to it all and a little overwhelmed. Excited to be here and learn!

2018 S3
Greetings all, first time Audi owner. Purchased a used 2018 S3 that was lower mileage (12.5K). So far, lots of fun, but I have a limited frame of reference having never driven a performance vehicle previously. Will be looking for insight and recommendations from this group.

Welcome. Just keep up with the unusually low maintenance schedules they are important for the rear haldex and transmission. If you're coming from a 100k mile service car. Audi is not on that schedule. Easy fluid changes but they cannot be neglected. Then just drive the sh** out of it no other issues.

2012 Audi S3
Hi, I'm Thomas, I own a A3 Sline Tdi 🤦🏾‍♂️.
I'm currently negotiating a deal for a 2012 S3, the car I couldn't afford when I bought the Tdi.
Haven't stuck my nose in a forum since the mk4 Golf, does anyone have any advice on things to look out for when test driving the S3, it's unmodified I believe, and has done about 78k.

Thanks. 😊

That Camaro sounds like a beast. Welcome to the group and looking forward to seeing your mod plans for the RS3..if you do end up getting it.

Audi S3 2017 Black Edition
Hi All

Had my 2017 Audi S3 Black Edition (27K Miles) now 2 months and lovin' it (love sleepers). Audi not for everyone but love the feel of sitting in an Audi. Previously owned an Audi 80 Sport and an A3 2.0 TDI (had her for 10 years and actually shed a tear sending her off to the knackers yard). Also have a driving share of a 2021 Convertible MINI JCW but find the ride harder (avoiding pot holes is a must) and space is often an issue.

Previously had BMW 5 series (great fun RWD) and a very disappointing 3 series which I got shot of within 6 months of buying (hated the gear ratio around UK towns in rush hour). Also MiniGT1250 (first car), a Renault 9 GTL (the only car bought for me by my Dad after ragging the MINI to oblivion), a very poor Vauxhall Astra Estate (which I hated even more the the BMW 3 series) and a VW Passat 20V 2.0T Sport (fun but snaked all over the road under heavy acceleration).

Love my S3 (even though the oil temp gauge is hidden and once found is shown in a rather naff dash display) and here to learn what upgrades are possible (without effecting longevity), what issues I can expect (water pump/electricals) and any advice along the way to optimise my investment.

Safe driving and mashing all.

Audi S3 2017 Black Edition
Whats up people! Super pumped just bought my 2017 Audi S3, at some point will be doing some work to improve performance, also looking for some exterior parts to improve the look. Let me know what you guys think or advice!
Black Rims. Would contrast the grey nicely ... if understated it'll be under-rated and as such ... underestimated. ;)
