    Yes I would definitely recommend a remap, makes all the difference, although maybe you will want to run it as standard for a while. Then when you remap you get that "new toy" feeling all over again. There are scores of companies offering remaps, popular ones are AMD, MTM, APR, Jabba, Revo, Superchips .... etc

    Since the remap I have found my car is more economical than standard when cruising on motorways (35MPG+), but more thirsty than standard (20-25MPG) if "enjoying myself".

    I reckon you would normally expect to pay 10,500 privately for that year and mileage.

    Run up to Christmas is a great time to buy a used car as the market is very flat.

    cant believe the price, I have a pre-facelift that I consider worth that, same miles and mint, either you got a steal or I am poorer than I thought!

    nice one. looks like a bargain! For some reason, there seems to be a disproportionate amout of audi s's and RS's here in norfolk. I regularly see 6 different S3's in norwich (3 black, 2 silver, 1 dolphin grey) and have seen 3 more as one-off's....

    He really needed to sell it cos he needed money for deposit on his new house he had it on pistonheads for two weeks for 10500 and no offers or calls so i thought i would be really cheaky and offered him silly money for it didnt think i would have a chance and it worked how mad s that . got all the keys as well two flip keys and plastic wallet key and straight standard key . I was looking for ages and i could only find pre face lift for this money so happy got a facelift now for silly money

    Very nice - I pick mine up on Thursday, can't wait. Same colour aswell I've paid £12700 2002 with 33k on clock which I don't think is a bad price - not as cheap as yours!! I'm 25 with 3NCB paying £700. Whats it like on fuel? I drive a diesel at moment, better get used to visiting the petrol station more often

    Well I finally picked mine up last night and its awesome. The build quality, the ride and the 225 horses that powers it is so refined. The handling is far superior and after being in the Mk4 Golf, I can see why it cost so much more when new. I'm averaging 23mpg so far but I'm sure it will get better once I stop being so giddy. So to sumarise its a beast!! I think i'm going to change my maf & coolant sensor & get the coilpack checked over just to be on the safe side. Not sure whether it is ticking over properly. Think its about 750-800 rpm. Is this normal?
    Thinking of getting it linked up to Vag Com but not sure what I'd be doing, so if anyone wants to give it the once over feel free!!
