    Question S3 for sale

    http://www.carzone.ie/used-cars/Audi...25BHP/1083060/

    Alright lads, I'm usually over on the S6 forum, but I saw this little gem and was thinking of takin it for a spin (petrol is killin me on the big car and I'm always on the look out for something different).

    A couple of lads on another forum at home reckon that it was originally a UK car, so I was wondering if anyone recognised it and knew some of its history.

    Any info or comments would be great

    Cheers

    It's expensive mate - even if it has the full MTM works, and if that is the case (big turbo) I cant imagine you will save that much in fuel...the standard S3 only gets avg. 28-29 mpg driven normally.

    I am always wary of red cars - never know if the paint will match up or will fade to pink after a few years - though Audi red seems pretty good in this regard.

    Cheers lads for the replies but unfortunately unless you fancy an S6 as a trade in against your car and money to me, it wouldn't work for me.

    I know there are cheaper cars out there but this one is down the road from me in Dublin and would be handy (i'm a lazy bugger sometimes) and they might take a trade in of my S6 (just waitin to see if the dealer is interested), which is currently averaging 18mpg, so the S3 would be frugal compared to the big girl, I can only dream of 28-30mpg at the minute. But theres no replacement for displacement.

    Also the VRT with bringin a UK car into Ireland also nudges up the price a touch, but I do reckon that there would be a bit to haggle off the price with the dealer

    I like red and with a decent coat of wax every few months the colour should stay lookin good for a long time

    Not sure if it is the full MTM turbo kit, but I've asked the question of the dealer to see what he says, we shall see

    Cheers

    For the benifit of the UK lads.

    In Ireland when a car is being registered we have to pay VRT.
    For example I went to my local tax office in January with my S3 that was on UK plates (bought in Southampton).
    I got my reg 02-KE-53. Now the price of VRT Vehicle Registration Tax was 3900 which at the time was 2600. In return we get NOTHING.

    So when we buy a car in the UK, we bring it home and them we get screwed basically.

    That is why that car looks so expensive.
