    Ended up being a total lemon, had a front end hit, rear end hit, and a badly sprayed passenger wing, why cant people just be honest!

    Anyway, im starting to give up hope to be honest of getting a clean S3, and had another go in a R32, and to be honest, i prefer it, its just smoother, and a better drive with a different kind of power! Heres the deal, please let me know what you guys think

    "53" Plate, in satin silver, 5 door
    Full black heated konig seats
    37,000 miles on the clock, just had full VW service 1 week ago, inc brake fluid
    Winter pack, xenons etc..

    The car is totally spotless, and the best i could get him down to was 13.5k, what you guys think? Im unable to find a similar mileage example, with 5 doors, and full leather, please do let me know what you think

    Thanks

    I thought you had bought it having read the title.

    Go for a R32 if you have had a few S3's. I quite fancy an R32 myself next as I need the extra 2 doors.

    Nice car Mike why did you get rid?

    Pity you didn't just switch the headlights lights on for only part of the exposure. I think you will have to get another R32 and re-take that picture.

    I wish. I sold it to get something a bit cheaper to buy and run, hence the 99' S3, but 4 months on, it turns out I'm still spunking a fortune on petrol, so I need a deeesoil now. depressive. Hopefully I'll find a better job, and be able to afford a decent petrol motor and a gaff.

    I thought the photo would be ok...they were side lights I left on I think if I remember right as I took one with the xenons on and it looked like JEsus was looking down on me.
