  1. Right, let's settle this… New S3 vs old S3, which would you rather have? VOTE in the comments below!

  2. Just slightly fancier Golf R's…. If you just want a slightly fancier badge and some different styling

  3. Can you race new golf 8R please 🥺

  4. like even the Golf 8 Gti sounds way better than the S3…always Audi‘s that have absolutely no sound since the filters are a thing…why??

  5. 14,000 pounds more for 0.1 second advantage

  6. Race them when it’s dry

  7. Mat: I'm sat in the new audi s3
    Me: ofc ur sat in the new car 😂

  8. Thank you for filming on a day like today

  9. Thumbs up for golf 7R vs 8R

  10. Well the new one just looks and sounds shit in my opinion. Would never ever consider buying one of these.

  11. My old GF was better 😜

  12. I love ur vids.I love the drag races.

  13. Dang the yellow on the Audi looks so hot man

  14. Audi certainly made the car feel cheaper in the interior…

  15. The new s3 sounds like garbage

  16. What is the Sense behind ,"Rolling Race in Comfortmode"?? and then being suprised that it takes forever 😀 Tell me pls

  17. Nice! I'll be keeping my current (2017) S3 though, can't stand all the vent fakery on the new one.

  18. Could that not just be because engines lose horsepower as they get older? I know 2017 isn't "old" but 2017 vs brand new?

  19. 25k for the old one 🤣🤣🤣🤣 fucking mugs whoever buys a teenage girls car over something manly like a rear drive BMW.

  20. In the real world there would be no difference.

  21. Please S3 Limousine New vs Old

  22. Sorry but the old s3 didn’t sound good at all dunno what u we’re hearing Matt but it wasn’t that s3

  23. I think the tyres made a difference, if they had the same tyres they would have been even

  24. Hi carwatson from Matwow

  25. Think thats just the better aerodynamic that give you over 60mph the last kick

  26. maybe the aerodynamics do is job right there

  27. Imagine stradman with carwow with his bug doing the drags would be amazing to watch

  28. Think I counted 7 interesting/interestinglys.

  29. I think this is a matter of aerodynamics. At middle travel you probably reached more than 100km/h so the drag force start to become consistent. Maybe the new S3 has a better drag coefficient. Moreover Audi could have reduced friction and losses in the inner components, maybe now they use oil with better specs too
