    Sounds like you got same as me, mines a B8.5 Black Ed. 2.0TDi Quattro, manual box and bunged Revo software on it, does things a 2 ton saloon car really shouldnt be able to do �� its alot of fun for a TDi.

    Now my daily commute is minutes not miles ill be moving to petrol, S4 Avant probably. Did consider an SQ5 but they fugly.

    Them S3's are worth some money now and rare in yellow too!!

    Only difference is mine isn’t Quattro, weight is about 1600kg, it’s interesting to drive in the wet haha!

    I could be seriously tempted into the S4 diesel tbh

    Sadly my old S3 had a fair bit of rot setting in, a shame because it was 99% original but couldn’t justify doing a refurb on it, but it’s heart will live on

    I've been through a selection of tedium and then made a drunken lockdown buy of an R53 Mini Cooper S, its done OK as a daily commuter car with some fun in the middle but its got tired from that so just picked up a 2018 MK6 Polo GTI 2.0 DSG.... holy fuckballs that thing is just stupid. Its quick enough (although the OEM tyres need to go, they would struggle pulling the skin of a rice pudding), crazy comfy, spacious, does 45-50mpg on the commute/work trips, makes farty noises, what more does a midlife crisis want for low costs :D
