    What does everyone think of this S3 - thoughts & value?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2002-AUDI-A3-S3-Quattro-225_W0QQitemZ350181663034QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAutomo biles_UK?hash=item350181663034&_trksid=p3286.c0.m1 4&_trkparms=66%3A2|65%3A7|39%3A1|240%3A1318

    Is in good condition, not mint but good but has had 5 owners.
    Has had a prang at some point (misaligned bonnet, one headlight faded more than the other). Broken cupholder, gearnob, climate control and headlight knob are all badly worn

    The major problem is with the service history. It appears after calling the garages stamped in the service book (couldn't get hold of the first), it hasn't had a brake fluid change in 5 years and also has never received it's 40k service additionals.
    So it has only ever had oil and oil filter changes since new and potentially a brake fluid change at it's first service (see below).
    The cambelt is due plus a service in 2k miles - obviously a major one seeing as it seems to have only ever had oil changes!

    Dealer wants 8995 and said he'd sort all the above out but wants asking price





    Thoughts please? Run a mile!!!!!!!!!!!? Or are older cars just like this?
