My S3 has now sold after only 6 months of ownership, sold it to get most of the money out of it to get my own place, it sold a week ago today and was a pretty straight forward sale to someone at work which was lucky really, got what I wanted too. I do miss it but it was for good reason.
So on the hunt for a car I had a budget of around 5-6k and didn't know what to get, then someone I knew was selling a well specced out 2006 mk5 gti showing only 48k and this was perfect for what I want the price was to good to pass on too.
I will be back sometime in the future with another Audi hopefully, and would like to say thanks for all the info everyone has given me past 3 years.
Anyways here are few photos of the gti.
