Had a go in a s1 and s3,felt poorly built and bland,can not have a tow bar on either and they may be faster on paper,but in real life neither are as fast

We’re all fans of our JCW’s and the latest S3 is pretty bland in comparison to drive but it would leave us for dust!

Pretty much every Audi south of the RS badge is a bit bland.... mind you so was the 335d BMW I had..... but thats just the way I see cars.... I like to be involved. The Audi 'unplugs" the driver and insulates them from the actual feeling & nuances of driving..... A lot of people like that and I can see why. Just not for us I guess as we drive Minis!


R60 Cooper S auto, Pure red, chilli, media and light packs..SOLD

F60 Cooper S All4 auto. Thunder grey with a lot of gloss black and very little chrome. Chilli, Media, Tech, XL, LEDs, pano roof, black 19s, black leather, black stripes, black roof, black rails (I like black)....pretty much all options ticked - already regret the ones that are missing.

In a straight line drag my Golf R would have beaten my JCW but round a twisty road I have more confidence in the Mini but a better driver than me in the Golf would probably disappear on any road.

I tried the Bentley Continental on the track and the Bentley race driver told me I was like a learner doing my test.


Cheers,
Dave
