    The S3 is a dream to drive. You can tootle around town with complete ease but once on a derestricted road in Dynamic mode it snarls like a wild beast and launches itself to the distant horizon. Road holding is superb, helped on my model with Audi Magnetic Ride shock absorbers. The quality of finish in the cabin is top notch with very tactile switches. All in all a veritable wolf in sheep's clothing.
