Why the 2016 Audi A3 / S3?

Exterior styling

Beautiful car, looks almost exactly like an S4 but cooler and faster.

Powertrain performance

superfast with amazing handling and super quick dual clutch stronic transmission. much like in the 911.

Interior styling

a little hard to get in and out of but fits like a glove once in the driver seat. too small for people other than small childfren to sit in the back.

Reliability & durability

water pump failed at 15,500 miles, repaired at no cost under warranty.

Why Not the 2016 Audi A3 / S3?

if you are a true driver that appreciate super car level performance, get this car. cheaper alternative would be the Golf R.

Did the water pump failure damage the timing belt or is it an electric pump? The vw/audis used to have the timing belt drive the water pumps, and a pump replacement was standard to prevent engine damage when the timing belt service was done at about 100K miles.
