    These things are stupidly fast.. so it wouldn't surprise me after all the S3 is lighter and in the corners - the Vectra is left behind I wreckon especially as the Audi has AWD too.

    Never underestimate AWD, however in a straight line I doubt there will be much in it between a 280 and the s3, round the twistys, maybe a different matter as the S3 will have more grip on roundabouts etc.

    Also if its wet, I doubt the S3 would notice compared to the VXR
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    What about in a sraight line? S3 is only 2.0 turbo yes 4 wheel drive but the vxr engine is bigger by far isnt it?

    It's not the engine size, if your neighbour's figures are correct then the S3 has a big advantage imo, smaller engine - bigger power hence it is lighter too.

    S3 isn't a 2litre turbo it will be a 1.8t at that age

    Quick cars and I honestly think a stock vxr would struggle badly

    A road i can keep a 911( 993 ) at bay.

    depends on road / weather / how brave your feeling

    i'm 1.9 sri 150

    i've also out done A6 3.0 tdi to name but a few.

    you just need to know your road
