    I'm amazed at how you guys can afford to run an S3 at such a young age!

    I didn't even buy a car until I was 20. OK, I had my mum's Polo to drive when I was back from Uni during the holidays, but whilst I was in Nottingham I had a bike or used the bus.

    I bought a 1.0 Polo for 2.5 years until I started my first job in the autumn of 1996. I started on 16k a year and once I'd paid rent, I could just afford to buy & insure a 3 year old group 10 Ibiza GTi (couldn't afford a Golf GTi).

    House purchase in 1999, kit car purchase in 2001 and S3 purchase in 2004 - aged 30. I still think the S3 is quite an expensive car to run and I'm earning a pretty good salary. Good luck to you guys, but just remember, it's all good borrowing money, but you have to pay it back eventually!

    Im 23 and own my S3 outright as well as my Golf Rallye. Their both insured FC under my own name too, in theory I could afford 1 amazing car rather than two boring ones but its nice to have them there!

    Ive just been clever with buying and selling my cars, owned Golfs since I was 15 and worked my way up, Im only an Engineer to so not on amazing money and I cope just fine

    Im with you on this mate please dont take this the wrong way but do all you young s3 owners have a house to run maybe kids. Il be honest im 26 and a house owner(no kids) and find it hard to do mods to the car. ?

    I paid outright for my car too. no kids, no mortgage so its not that hard to run as its only driven on weekends. but i am thinking of selling up and investing into property now. but i can imagine having a mortgage and bills to pay it would definetley be hard to run a s3, unless your on a healthy salary ovcourse or a drug dealer...

    yeah actually buying an S3 is only half the battle, paying running cost esp if ur gonna use it as a daily drive is expensive esp with fuel prices not ever gonna go down now!!
    therefore best save a good bit of money first buy a decent one which hopefully touch wood wont require major surgery instead of rushing too get one and buyin a kipper!!
    S3 well worth the money!
    so at 21 paying 600 in my own name surley a good price then for insurance
    Started off at 17 paying 1100 for a 1.4 ford escort, then 700 for a 1.8 focus lol seems as the car gets better the cost goes down no claims must be worth a lot i never really thot it was!!

    31 and only a 1.8T with revo, but I don't owe any cash on it and insurance is 172 full comp. I would like to get something else but only drive 3k a year due to commuting so waste of money, wish I had got an S3 but at the time I bought the 1.8T even an 02 S3 were going for 17k - 18k. Misses wants a ring on her finger as well before I buy a new car and doing up the house drinks cash so I think I will have the 1.8T for a while longer, you lot make me feel old but its good to know there is still a keen younger market for the 1.8T and S3.

    you young S3'ers im 20 and seriously i dont know how you do it....my main problem is not having enough time to work because of goin to uni and doing uni work...plus I have bad spending habits! I blame london! hehe this all adds up that why i drive a 1.8 Non-turbo and even that is becoming a joke on my wallet to run! However, gladly, I havent taken a loan out or financed on anything up till now!

    ive just registered on the sight to gather info etc... as im literally just about to buy my first S3 !

    Im 18... paying on my own and insurance will cost &#163;2100 a year with a &#163;1000 voluntary excess...

    and i have to make a few sacrifices for it such as not going out as much etc... ! few less beers here and there !

    was planning to move out but now im staying put at home so can afford it................... JUST :D

    Wise words, a car is just a car although I know that youngsters these days want the coolest car the can get their hands on. A soon as peripheral stuff like social life, TV's, consoles, holidays start suffering becasue you spunk all you wages each month on your car, you'll soon start wishing you'd gone for the fiesta.

    Having an S3 at 18 may be cool, but unless you either have a rich daddyo or an extremely good wage as a sparky or something (you aint been to uni so you wont be on a salary) then whats the point in havign this nice car if you cant afford to go out with your mates in it. it may also be good at pulling the chicks, but they'll soon clock on when you start asking them to pay the friday night meal bill...

    food for thought.
