    Agree with a few of you guys, very underwhelmed. Power seems good though.
    I'm expecting "officially" less than the S3, say 218kw.

    In the MkVI GTI engine, there was no variable valve for exhaust while the A3 2.0TFSI did. IIRC

    How many people who bought GTI's and A3's are actually going to know that let alone care? It's all about figures and appearance man. It's all the masses will ever care about.

    Just saying that might account for the difference in output numbers.

    Several Audis did get the variable timing head on the EA888, but the A3 2.0 TFSI was not one of them. It got the 147kw/280Nm version (same as the GTI, with a slightly different exhaust and milder tune). The variable timing engine put out 350Nm.

    Based on previous pricing, around 40% more than an R, which will look better, cost less to modify and hold value better

    I presume the "look better" isn't based on any previous 1 series?
