    My New S3 (Many Photos)

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and thought I would share the photos I took yesterday of my new S3. I have owned way too many cars over the years, my favorite (before this one) being my 2000 Nogaro S4. I have always regretted selling that car, and never did find a replacement that gave me the overall package. I've been through R32s, 335is, an M3, etc. As soon as I found out the new S3 coming to the states, I knew I had to have it. I didn't think I would be able to pull the trigger so soon, but I am fortunate that Wilsonville Audi in Oregon gave me an amazing deal. I hope you enjoy the photos!

    Overall I am beyond excited about it. I am respecting the break-in period between now and the first oil change, so I have not been able to get a feel for how it performs with a wide open throttle, or experience the exhaust note at its full potential. Unfortunately, 5,000 miles is about a year's worth of driving for me. I guess that means I will need to start finding more excuses to drive! I will be keeping an eye out for cruises that originate near Portland.

    Congrats on the S3!

    One tip, do not "baby" the car during the break-in period. The 2.0Ts have enough problems with oil consumption, most caused by babying it. Don't drive it like you stole it (WOT to redline), but do accelerate spiritedly on occasion, decelerate in gear, vary the RPMs.

    To my understanding the oil consumption is not due to inproper break in but more so poor ring design that has been fixed with the updated piston design.
