    Buying S3 miles and age.

    Hi to everyone has i am new here.

    I have been looking for a Audi S3 3dr'' but the problem i have is i average 12-13k a year.

    Most of the S3'S out there are from 2006-2008 for the price i want to pay, but the prices are all over the place and the mileage on these cars seem to be in the region of 40k-60k.
    My issue is if i bought say an S3 with 60k 3-4 yrs down the line the resale would not be great i think due to mileage 90k, do i look for a car with less miles even if it is not a newer model or try and buy a newer car but higher miles..I dont really want to go over 19k for a car.

    And the spec on these S3's seem to be so different, will that make a big difference too also am i better buying from a Audi Dealership.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    If you're averaging 12-13k a year why is that a problem? Try averaging 25k a year and then it can becomes an issue

    You haven't mentioned what your budget is. That might help narrow things down to what car and spec you'd be looking at.

    Personally I'd be looking at something with a bit of warranty attached given my experience of the S3.

    I would buy a car with high mileage and newer, than an older one and lower. as long as it has a proper service history

    I have done 12k in mine in like 8 months

    12-13k is high for me , at one time i could cycle to my work 3 miles away and use my cars at the weekend which was a waste tbh, but this job it is 20 mile each way with lots of nice winding A roads, my R32 would eat the drive there.
