Look, in order to be able to make a proper comparison, you need to have lived with all three cars.
Dont get me wrong, I LOVE ALL OF THEM (like a dad talking about his kids
) , but picture this :
You wake up on a Sunday morning. The weather is just perfect, not too bright not too cold.
The streets are dry, but you can smell the slight moist from the trees and earth.
You have no other obligations on that day, you live in the city and you fancy a trip up the mountains to go meet a friend for lunch in an iconic mountain restaurant... (God... I'm starting to sound like Shrew
Theres no traffic at all and you can only see a couple of cars going up and down in absolute silence (bloody hybrids...)
So you open your garage door, and there you have:
An S3 Sprint, all done up, nice exhaust back box, bit lowered with some chunky tyres sitting on some retro wheels
An S3 Sud Ti, fully restored with the same characteristics as the Sprint
An S3 16V 33, in the same state as the above, and a bit tweeked
All cars are full with petrol, freshly changed oils, washed and waxed, ready to go....
Which one would you take ???
.... I'm going home tonight to work on my Sprint
