    At long last I've finally done it ...

    and got myself an S3!

    I am so excited and I have to wait a week before I can pick her up from the dealer but it will be worth it.

    I would have like to have got it a tad cheaper but I had been looking for about 2 months and was starting to feel down as I kept missing out on the really nice examples and was getting desperate. I really wanted to hold out for the right spec and at the right price.

    Its an 03 silver with black leather, 56k with full Audi history. The spec is decent as it comes with the following factory options of F/C/A, Bose, Symphony, Heated Seats and the upgraded suspension which consists of shocks with uprated damping and lowered by 20mm over standard S3 suspension. Needless to say its in excellent condition and comes with the usual 12months warranty and 6 months road tax.

    Very happy and roll on next thursday!

    Oooo decisions, decisions!

    I went over my initial budget by 1,500 so I think mods will have to wait a few months but when I do it has to be a remap!

    Sounds like you got yourself a nice car! You will have to post some photos up of the car once you have it. Be worth the wait though

    Post some pics up when it arrives, sound MINT, considering you stretched your budget to purchase it.

    Dolphin Grey with black Recaros and 18" RSTTs... was supposed to be picking it up today but the garage never called! Hopefully tomorrow! Pics to follow...

    Hi Mate, that was my S2K, I sold it about 9 months ago and then bought an e46 M3 when I was supposed to be getting an S3!

    I then decided to start looking for an S3 a couple months back and am so happy I finally have my first Audi 'S' car!
