    Thinking of buying a S3

    hi guy's and gals

    I currenty have a TT 225 1999 and love it but need a car with some more room so I advertised my TT for sale and somone wants to do a swap

    deatails are here http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/classifieds/1321332.htm

    Is it anyone from here by any chance?

    also anything i should look for when buying also is the price stated correct??? he said the car is mapped asked him where it was mapped and he said he did not know but his firend who works for Diamond Tunning said it was a good map (not herd of diamoind before myself)

    Any ways thanks and Hi

    Looks a touch over priced! Its a pre-facelift model and the drivers seat bolster looks a bit worn. It looks nice though. I've not heard of diamond either but it looks like this lot: http://www.diamondtuning.co.uk/

    Weird that he is also selling due to needing a bigger car.

    Personally I would look for a facelifted model with FSH and fewer miles - might cost a bit more though.

    because his is over priced ?

    his friend said it was a good map ? and works for diamond tuning.... who are they never heard of them ? also I see on there site they do mileage correction...sounds nice.

    I'd walk away and sell privately and wait for a decent one.

    I think those alloys are not a bad match for tha car...I like them.

    If you're buying any non-facelift S3 then you need to find a bloody good reason before departing with your hard earned cash. Personally, Mint, low mileage, chipped, etc I still would not even consider it.
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !

    All seems a bit sus to me to be fair... I agree with Voorhees, sell privately and buy the right one at the right price.

    Don't go for that one. Save for a decent facelift with less than 100k! I'd be supprised if any S3 owner would swap for a TT unless its high miles or they want rid of it.
