Hi Stuart

Stonking cars, I miss my Audi A4 Quattro I used to tow a lot with it and was very impressed. Unlike the Range Rover it gets to where you need to go without having a break on the hard shoulder! The other half would have serious trouble choosing something different to drive than an Audi, The dealerships are far less stuffy than that of BMW or Merc and offer in my opinion a superior service. However donít be pulled into the S3 model, the 2lt TFSI runs the same engine, less road tax and insurance plus when she test drove the S3 in view of upgrading up-grading from the 2lt turbo there was no noticeable difference for the additional 6k new they were asking.

Last time I saw one of these was when I destroyed one in my rear view mirror in my MR2 turbo!

S3
 
I have a golf 1.8t chipped to 197bhp. done 90k in it with 147 k on the clock. One clutch replaced but other than that never missed a beat. Chipping is fine if done by professionals. Old man has the 2.0T S line sportback quattro. awesome engine, don't bother with s3, £400 bluefin chip takes it from 200 to 245, you wouldn't notice the difference between it and the s3. It can be turned on and off with cruise control button for different drivers or road conditions.

Towing wise, we pulled our SR5.4 with 90 optimax on for 8 years with a vauxhall calibra 2.016v. Never a problem even on slipways. Audi quattro S3 will be fine.:thumbs: nice choice, just don't bother with s3, more insurNce, more to buy, more likely to get stolen or keyed! :mad:

Answered your own question.
Did your MR2 have a tow bar fitted, if not go back and play on barry boys.
