id go for the A3 even though its older and smaller engine,
Chris, (used to be on vage) had a silver one(1.8t) and it was one of the nicest cars ive ever had the privilage to drive. Dunno how different the 1.6 is to the 1.8 but their a head turner modded or not.
I wouldn't have thought the 8V GTi would be much quicker than your 1.8 Dan, seeing that it has cams? Have you any idea what BHP it is making? What did the 1.8 make as standard do ya know?
My 16V has a Sebring stainless backbox (twin square pipes), it wasn't much louder than the standard box until I removed the big dog of a box between the CAT and the backbox. The baffles were fucked in it so made sense just to get a straight thru from the CAT to backbox. Now it growls!!
I suspect yours may have the same done if it is as loud as you say.
