    SUCH A TWAT.

    I nearly had a beautiful Black 2001 facelift S3, only 53000 miles but fluffed it by not offering the full asking price (9000). I am now absolutely gutted. Who wants to sell me a facelift for 9000 with lowish miles? preferably yellow or black with full black leather? :D

    p.s. BEWARE, there's a 2002 purple S3 on autotrader which the guy has said is hpi clear, however after i did a HPI check its a cat C write off. some people are faggots. I was wondering why he was letting it go for 8200 with only 52,000 miles.

    I take it, it's sold then?

    Well the guy said some guy's already put down the deposit for the full amount so its not looking good, however, he said he'll give me a call if the guy pulls out, but that won't happen

    Yeah, it's lucky I checked because I could have wasted alot of money. Where did you get that check done? I had to pay to find that information out

    The fact that this guy has only had the car for 6 weeks probably suggests 1 of 2 things:

    1. He bought the car, knowing that it was a Cat C, with the intention of selling on for more money while trying to hide the write off

    2. He got stitched up by buying the car without knowing it was a Cat C, and now he's found out, he wants to shift it on without telling anyone so he can get his money back.

    Either way, I was speaking on the phone to him and when I asked for his postcode, he told me he didn't have one. lol... Clearly didn't want me to know where he lived just incase his idea worked. idiot man.

    Indeed, very nice car. "Lats" and I work at at the same company. We're getting quite a collection going now. 2 S3s and my A3.
