    Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack!!

    Well its now coming up to 3 months and i still cant find a S3. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]


    If ANYBODY knows of a Ebony Black with Silver leather or black/silver alcantara S3, Or preferably a Mineral/Dolphin Grey with Black leather or black/silver alcantara S3 going for about 14-16.5k, please let me know!!!


    I have searched what i think is EVERYWHERE, but to no avail. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Perhaps i am being picky, but the car MUST have a Sunroof and Aluminium mirrors and not be a high miler. Preferably to be a facelift X reg, but i dont car if its pre-facelift as long as its a good 'un. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


    Cheers

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack!!

    Why the sunroof when you've got climate control/aircon?
    That will restrict your chances of the right car.

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    Thanks for the reply chaps...

    @Mark : I am looking for a RHD this time, the price difference on LHD S3's are minimal, so mobile.de isn't really an option as there are no RHD S3's on there. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    @Lyrac : Having had a TTC, it felt quite clostrophobic as there are no sunroof options available for TT's. Then i moved to the Roadster and it is a different world. I am having trouble convincing myself not to buy another roadster, so a sunrrof in a hardtop car is a must. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    It wouldn't be so difficult if you didn't insist on the sunroof. Hardly anyone orders the sunroof with climate.
    What about these:
    1999 AUDI AUDI S3 3 Door Hatchback
    Immaculate Black, with spotless Blue/Black Alacantra/Leather interior. Heated/elec front seats, E/W, E/M, ABS, Bose concert stereo upgrade, Xenons, late spec wing mirrors. Full Audi Service History, MoT'd and taxed until June 2004. NO CANVASSERS. 46000 miles. 14600 .
    2000 W Reg Audi S3 1.8 quattro
    Petrol, Manual 6 speed, Black Metallic, Hatchback, 70,000 miles , 3 Doors. 17" Alloys, ABS, Air Bag, Central Door Locking, Climate Control, Computer, Driver Air Bag, Electric Windows, Leather Upholstery, Zenon Head Lamps.Silver Leather 'Mobile 07836 524153 14,450.

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    @Andy : Cheers bud, heres how i ive been picky with those 2.... Car 1 has got blue alcantara and no alu mirrors, and car 2 has got 70k miles and no alu mirrors. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] and both dont have the 'making a S3 hard to find' sunroof option. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Are they both from Croft Motors per chance?

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    forget the alu mirrors, you can add those yourself. No, the blue alcantara was private, but Croft have got another one:
    2000 V Reg Audi S3 1.8 quattro
    Petrol, Manual 6 speed, Ming Blue Metallic, Hatchback, 45,000 miles , 3 Doors. 17" Alloys, ABS, Air Bag, Alcantara, CD Multi Changer, Central Door Locking, Climate Control, Driver Air Bag, Electric Windows, Half Leather, Immobilizer, Tax, Warranty, Zenon Head Lamps.Mobile 07836 524153 14,950.
    Their on autotrader.
    You see this one has exactly what you want, but you can tell someone who specifies a totally unnecessary sunroof, is gonna go for a ludicrous colour. What is it with Audi & all the greens, Goodwood, Jasper, Cactus, they don't suit green. (Oh and the dipping rear view mirror is a must):
    2000 AUDI S3 210
    First registered UK 5th Dec 2000 X Reg 2001 Model Supplied by Amersham Audi Full Audi Service History. Goodwood Green, pearl effect Silver Alcantara Trim Automatic dipping rear view mirror BOSE sound system Electric slide and tilt glass sunroof Polished aluminium door mirrors 6 CD autochanger Cruise Control Tracker Monitor. Warranty until Dec 03. Currently in East London. Priced for quick sale. 35500 miles. 14995.

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    @Andy : cheers again mate, much appreciated. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Unfortunately the mirrors are about 350 each, so at that sort of cost, i would prefer to find em on a car if possible.

    The Ming blue one at Croft has got Blue alcantara and no sunroof or Alu mirrors. And as for Daz's goodwood green one, it's perfect in nearly every way.... but its green. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    but cheers for looking mate, its appreciated. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    That's why I didn't include it the first time, but I thought you were maybe local to Croft or something. Buy the Green one and get it resprayed! Its gotta be cheaper than adding the mirrors.

    Re: Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack

    I just checked autotrader for an S4 (keeping my eye in), and there are 25 S4's in different shades of "cheap" Blue. only one in black & one in Dolphin. Are these all for sale purely to get rid of the hideous colour they mistakenly ordered. I think we need to go back to the Golf GTi rules, you can only have 3 colours, black, dolphin & silver. There's an S4 on there in burgandy for godssake!!

    So, it was Dolphin, Silver leather, body coloured mirrors (if we`re doing discreet, we may as well do it properly)and it looks great! When it`s dirty it looks a bit like a boring A3! Excellent.

    Ahh...body colour mirrors. Good choice.

    Far more subtle...even with 'in your face' Nogaro Blue.
    The alloy mirrors are just a little 'bling bling' for my liking...they match chrome rims, limo tint windows and fake louis viton perfectly. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    It was just a playful comment...

    But one based around what I'd read in some boring study or other, carried out by very boring people from some university or other, who obviously have nothing better to do but come up with stuff like that!

    There was a certain type of personailty associated with each colour...can't remember where I saw / read it.

    It's true though! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]


    Anyway...
    Back on topic...

    Kev, I'm sure you'll find the right car eventually...
    I know the struggle it is to find a specific car / colour combination - I wanted Nogaro, sunroof, body colour mirrors and a few nice to haves.
    Ended up having to order new...obvuously this option isn't open to you now...but something'll turn up.

    That car pretty much meets the brief, apart from being Goodwood Spleen!

    However, really low mileage. I've done 30,000 miles since new from September 2002. I guess that's counted as high.
