    51 Plate S3 with 115k..

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/159932.htm

    worth a look? am worried about mileage at 115k, mainly for resale value, but it does look in good condition..FASH with cambelt just done..would this be the 225?
    cheers

    the only thing you can say 100% is that its a facelift.

    its at the end of the time when its possibly a 210, possibly a 225. I wouldn't let it get in the way of your decision though - the 210 is an insurance group lower and just as fast.

    on a 115k car, Make sure that the waterpump, cam belt tensioners and oilpump/pickup have been replaced along with the advertised cam belt - otherwise budget to get them done yourself. 115k is on the above average side, but not a show stopper. Plenty of room for haggling with that milage.

    Very high but it does have FASH.
    Unmolested Ming blue S3 (so it doesn't handle or stop very well), Bose, sunroof and centre armrest but no heated seats - Gone but not forgotten although I am enjoying the new 350CLK!

    210 almost guaranteed

    Seems a bit pricey to me, I paid 9500 and mine has 63k

    Prob 210, Sure he would have stated 225 if it was, dont look bad though and should be looked after if its 1 owner.

    Mines in the classifieds - gutted to be selling :-(

    FASH history is worthless IMO, they dont look after yor cars at all!! Just buy on condition, at that miels it should have had 2 or three haldex services, at least one set of discs, the cambelt and waterpump/rollers, and plenty of oil changes! But means nothing if its a nail!

    well mine has got 118k on the clock now, but it had a new engine at 95k so i guess its not really the same.

    Having said that though everything eles is still going strong!

    That one looks in very good condition really though, i mean look at the seats, they dont even look worn really!

    thing is, silver...17" wheels...no chrome mirrors....black seats.... I'm not being funny, but I think that kind of brings the price down 'a bit' too. It's a really boring set up
