    Does anyone know this S3 for sale?

    I was supposed to pick up my first S3 today but the sale fell through.

    I have now seen this Orange example which seems a good price:

    Audi S3 2.0T FSI 2007MY quattro | eBay

    Does anyone know of the car? I love Orange but not sure how practical it will be long term.

    Thanks

    quite cheap for 29k on the clock. Orange is not the greatest colour when it comes to sell it
    Be patient. English is tough.

    Now:

    I thought Orange was desirable but I suppose it's all up to personal preference.

    They look amazing, but there aren't many people with the big kahunas to drive a car with a statement colour that bold so there are less buyers out there at resale. Fully detailed they look awesome.

    Haha, you sound like a guy after my own heart, Charlie! I currently have a yellow S3, but one of the great loves of my life was my Titan Gold MK4 Astra Coupe 2.2 Bertone! I've currently also got a Tambora Flame (orangey gold) Freelander 2 at the moment. Like yourself I LOVE bright colours that stand out. xx

    To the OP, I think you should go for Solar Orange if you like it! I wouldn't worry too much about residuals on it as there will always be someone like us 'bright colour lovers' out there looking to buy. I spent ages looking for a Yellow S3 8P3 and could only find 1 UK wide that came up for sale at the time. xx

    I'm almost convinced to go for it. I love it in that colour and it has the right spec.

    If you want an especially well maintained and looked after car in the fastest colour (!), I would take a look at this one:

    2007 57 plate AUDI S3 TFSI QUATTRO, WHITE - IMMACULATE - 33k Miles | eBay

    Pictures to be added tomorrow.

    That ebay ad looks like a con. Seems too cheap, the seller has no reputation and the photos are small (the first ebay ad by the thread starter).

    Sorry, just saying what I see. I'm new, so hello

    I viewed the car today at a dealer in Bolton. I rove all the way from Edinburgh. Not the car for me as it was a finance repo so no service book and only 1 key. Audi have confirmed it has a Fsh. Car was immaculate inside & out but just not the right one for me.

    If you look at everything it's had done and comes with, you're just investing now rather than in the future!'
