I love the hatch, and wish it came to the US. But I don't mind the S3 sedan. Although, I think that's about as big of a car as I'd ever want. I changed my sister in laws brakes over the weekend, on her 2014 Altima. It's funny. She has the 3.5L, and the thing has bigger flappy paddles than the GTI\R. I think they're the same ones that the GTR has. For a CVT lol. Anyway. Before I moved over to these cars, that's what I had, the same gen Altima. And holy shit, just pulling the thing into my garage and a short drive to break in the pads, the thing feels like a goddamn boat. And it's not really a big car. But 5 years of tiny ass hatches has spoiled me.

But yeah. No intention of getting rid of the R, but if I was, an 8Y S3 would be on the short list, even without the hatch.

I'm really thinking about a new S3 next year, it's getting the RS3's rear diff. I think it's a better deal than the mk8 R.

That and the Prestige trim is loaded with technology. We all know how much of a sucker I am for tech.

I have a solution to your CEL problem. Hockey tape. Run an o2 spacer and plug in for a couple days before emissions and stay out of boost.

That looks strikingly similar to my patent pending ACC Error Light Delete V2.

Introducing the ACC Error Light Delete v2!!

Now with more appropriate color matched matte black vinyl!

"Did you buy a roll of matte black vinyl just to cut a tiny triangle out of it to cover your ACC error light?"

You'll be hearing from my lawyers shortly.
