    Not much white for sale. You will have to pay more for the same age/mileage/condition car in white than any other factory colour. Strange but true.

    how do you reckon the rs3 will hit 2nd hand prices? thing is another 3k or so starts putting the purchase price near to an rs4 which is a rather tempting prospect!

    True, but your running costs with the RS will likely sky rocket too!

    I asked this in another thread. I am in the same situation (but i want grey, sprint, black or that sweet purple ) , and have also looked at RS4 prices, then noticed the mpg and running costs. An 8P3 S3 ticks all the boxes for me (currently got 8L since, have had it 8 years).

    Thanks

    i dont think it wil really affect them until they start appearing 2nd hand, and even then there would have to be a few available for them to have any effect...bear in mind only 500 are coming to the UK.

    Im currently on the hunt for a FL S3 with a limit of 22k, theory being that a 59 maybe 09 car will have its last big year of depreciation, then your looking at 2k pa roughly after that...58's go from 20-24k

    also considered the RS4, the running costs though are silly, over 1k for your front discs/pads!! then ya fuel... nice thought but you really need a good 300-400 spare a month to run

    personally i don't understand the fascination with white cars. personally i really don't like them (tho there are a few people on here that love them).

    get Sprint Blue or Black, and go on holiday with the change (or use it to mod the car)

    yeah Dave, wishful thinking mate

    Sub, what you harping on about, sprints seem more expensive/exclusive than the white ones.......has that not always been the case? my faves in order are yellow/sprint then possibilities are white/red/grey assuming i cant find my top two in DSG form

    Unfortunately with all the vat and price rises recently..all used cars have gone up and the S3 being reasonably good with residuals is going to be more expensive. Good luck with your purchase though...and if anyone desperate for a lovely phantom with added bits and can do me a good offer I will happily chop it and order a RS3! Haha.

    I think you will need a little , unless you are prepared to increase mileage.....
