    Newbie...Needs Advice on S3 buying

    First off all would like to say hi to everyone on the site just registered currently got a BMW 330Ci coupe; but trading it in for a Audi S3

    Been looking at a few on the net and found one its a 2001 Y, 51k FSH etc...

    My first question is... would it be a 225? thought all facelifts were 225? and second question is 11k a little steep for a Y plate S3?

    Many thanks in advance

    Jon

    Theres a number of stickies at the top of this forum mate, but that sounds a bit on the pricey side to me......even if it's in mint condition
    Was an Audi S3, Pre-Facelift 210 bhp, Security Tints, Standard spec, simple sweet and to the point.

    Currently a Golf GT TDi 170 DSG in Pearlescent Black with every conceivable extra available - company car


    From June 2011 - Audi A3 Sportback Black Edition 140 tdi (company car) with DSG gearbox, Technology Pack + AMI, Storage Pack, Open Sky Roof System, Comfort Pack, Luggage Pack and Interior Light pack. Oh and it's Monza Silver. Can't wait

    Hi mate

    Not all facelifts are 225s, alot of the "1" Chassis cars on a Y Plate were 210bhp, depends on engine code and ecu software

    The price sounds towards the topscale, but then Ive seen more and more Y-Platers with alot higher milage than that (Mines nearly double that!) Guessing that it wont have had the cambelt/tensioners/waterpump changed so Id deffo factor that into haggling over the price

    Big thanks fella's

    The dealer is offering me a good trade in on me BMW; but i still think the S3 is a tad to pricey.
    Although there are a few 2001 3's around this price on the market.
