After 9 months of ownership I just passed 5,000 miles. I took the car in for its complimentary first oil change, tire rotation, and to knock out a couple of TSB's. All in all, I still love this car and really enjoy it.

However, things in life always are changing and I am possibly relocating to the east coast. Part of my relocation involves working from home full time and I will be selling the Audi. If anyone is interested please shoot me a PM.

East coast ain't so bad. Whereabouts are you going to end up?

I am from PA and lived on the east coast for 25 years. I am planning on going back to PA, about an hour west of Philly.

I made it to the east coast and kept my toys, for now at least. The Audi continues to be a joy to own and zero problems to report. I get excited to drive it every chance I get and can't say enough good things about it. Just a cross post from Audizine since I know a few people on S2KI have also bought S3's and or are interested in buying one.

Took an unplanned drive and brought my camera along. what a surprise, lol. I was planning to wrench on the S2000, and go for a drive, but with all the rain I left that car in the garage and brought out the S3 instead to play. I've owned the car for almost a year and unfortunately this was my first time really driving the car and learning how to drive it briskly down a back road. The first year of ownership was spent in AZ which is not the best state to experiment with the AWD turbo's capabilities. Now being in PA and on the east coast, I feel like the Audi was made for these conditions. Such a different car from the S2000 and I had to at times be a little more patient with the S3.

Line the car up for a turn over a crest, turn in gently, wait for the weight to transition, wait for the car to set over the crest, then mash the throttle and feel the tires spinning and clawing for traction. The car has tremendous grip and really hooks up in the wet. Although I did find a safe secluded area to find out that yes, you can turn in first gear, spin all four wheels, pitch it sideways in a small drift, grab second, and let the slide continue for a bit. This car is very playful and eager to be pushed. It is so different in every way (except that its enjoyable and fun to drive and own) that it's so much fun to have partnered with the S2000. I get a totally different ownership and driving experience. The Audi is perfect and enjoyable in bad weather and offers the brute force and power that the S2000 lacks.
