    Lovely car mate, and it's highly specced too, but I'm afraid the price is fairly high for a pre facelift, even with the high spec and low mileage

    Hi Bob, yes its a real shame and i'm absolutely gutted!

    The S3 was always a toy for me as i have other cars i can use, so maybe one day i might be able to buy another...

    I thought i'd test the water with the price as its got a very good spec plus i'm leaving the aftermarket bits like wheels and headunit which are worth nearly 2000 on there own.

    I'm open to offers anyway

    I've no idea what to put it up for really mate.....

    sadly it's a buyers market out there at the moment, and once prices have started to drop, they will never rise again. it's a market where you can pick up a decent facelift for under 6500 now, with many pre facelifts under 100k for less than 5k. SiTrials pre facelift S3 recently sold for 4800, with a superchips map, milltek cat back, H&R springs, Forge DV, and a performance haldex controller....

    I'd hate to say what you could get for it, but check out pistonheads and there are some frighteningly cheap cars about....

    I ended up selling my E36 M3 for just 3600 a few months back, when 6 months ago it was worth 5k anyday!

    Hey Yaz, sorry to see the car go, looks mint (especially with those wheels).

    As already mentioned, the price is slightly high, but as you said you got to give it a go...

    Good luck

    Yeah true, but i'm geussing that some peeps might not want to buy a '51' reg or newer due to the road tax being higher than my model?? and to be honest this is one of the reasons why i bought a 2000 model S3. I had plans for remap. suspension and brake upgrades etc which would prob make it the same if not better than a newer S3.

    Well thats what i thought anyway...

    Well, i haven't actually worked it out but that's what my computer says on the dash... besides why couldn't an S3 do in excess of 30mpg? Suppose it depends how you drive it?

    ...and i'm NOT boring, i've just got 11 points on my license

    Through a lot of blood sweat and tears i've so far managed 32mpg on the dis half way through a tank, I have driven like a complete fairy changing before 3000rpm which is hard work so i would agree its possible, but how some people get 400 miles week in week out is beyond me, i've never been so bored in my life....normal driving i get approx 27mpg.

    Anyway goodluck with the sale, i'd put the car back to standard to !!

    It's not yet a certainty that those brainless tax changes will come in. They have been 'postponed', and hopefully Brown and his muppets will be evicted from Downing Street next year before they are put into motion...

    aaah, do any of these S3s that people pop up on here ever sell?
    I too would like to know what happens to them.


    I would have thought you wouldn't get over 6k for it.

    Prefacelift is a bit of a stumbling block. And re the tax issue, mine is a 51reg and still AMK. So there's quite a bit of room in the facelift bracket for cheaper tax. If people are even that bothered about it.

    Perhaps its a precautionary issue, if the new tax hike does come in and you still own the car and decide to sell it after the implementation, then you might find it harder to sell as everyone might consider the tax bracket before buying a new car.
    I know the guys on the TT Forum are having this problem. The difference in one year for a 225bhp TT is either 190 or 430 for 1 year road tax! Fortunately my TT is a 2000 model 225 and wont suffer the proposed taxes...that said, if it happens.

    This reminds me how much i like my Rocco

    the tax hike doesnt make that much difference to the average consumer..... honestly, your only really aware because your on this forum...your average joe bloggs wouldnt know, and i know i wouldnt care for paying an extra 200 a year for a facelift car (even though i dint agree with it)... just my 2pence

    240 isn't that much more for a whole year, in my opinion. Not to change what car to get anyway. 240 can be gained and lost at any point in the year on general maintenance. Maybe I'm no longer talking sense.

    I take interest in these selling threads as I may sell mine over the next couple of months.
    To get what, I don't know yet. Answers on a postcard -
