Here in South Africa, the S3 is certainly not the same price as a T5 R-Design, way more expensiveOver here it's the price that seems limiting to me. If I spec a V40 T5 how I want it, it comes in at about £36k... Problem is that for the same price, I can get the Audi S3 with a very similar spec, 300bhp, DSG gearbox and 4 wheel drive.
However, when all is said and done, the V40 is so much better to look at! Audi's are every where over here too.
It's amazing how much the price differs from one country to another, I would have assumed that there would have been a similar gap in price between cars everywhere.Here in South Africa, the S3 is certainly not the same price as a T5 R-Design, way more expensive
