Audi's A3 is a fun and sporty premium hatch that we enjoyed having in the AB garage. The newer S3 version just ups the ante and improves on what makes the A3 an already engaging motoring choice. Now the folks at B & B have kicked things up another notch by massaging that sweet 2.0 TFSI 4-cylinder, taking it from 265 to 306 hp. Not enough? They also offer 324 or 362 hp versions as well. With 362 hp on tap, the B & B S3 should be good for a 0-62 of 4.9 seconds and v-max of 170+ mph.

The higher horsepower numbers come via upsized turbos and computer remapping, as well as a performance exhaust and upgraded intakes. Thanks to sport springs, body roll is further reduced and the car is lowered by 25 mm. An adjustable coilover upgrade is also available from B & B., along with unique 19- or 20-inch wheels covering updated 6-piston brakes to complete the suite of mods. No word on pricing but keep an eye on the B & B website if this sounds as good to you as it does to us. After a day behind the wheel of one of these, you'll probably sleep well in that bed and enjoy breakfast that much more in the morning knowing what's waiting for you in the driveway.
