    Is that a facelift model? If so sounds OK with the mileage. May need a service and tyres at that mileage = £800!

    Guessing this is a manual? The S-Trons of this age and mileage go for a lot more than 16K!

    That might be why it's £18k!

    Coming from a reputable BMW garage it should be serviced before purchase but demand it is and get them to put 4 new tyres on it aswell. Any descent garage will if they know the sale is going to be definite.

    Yeah, I waited 2 years for an s-tronic with buckets to come onto the market at a realistic price. Would never have std 'sports' seats again ... EVER!

    Well the deals done and after a roundtrip of 520miles the S3 is parked up at its new home.Stage 1 remap at AMD in Essex is on the cards,but may wait until we have winter out of the way.

    Good handover from BMW Stratstone Hull,even filled the tank with BP Ultimate.Still have a quarter of a tank left!

    Looks lovely mate. I really like it in Red - is it actually called 'Brilliant' or 'Misano'? I do really like the double white stitching on the inside on the flat bottom and on the gear gaitor!

    There's not much you need to do tbh....... maybe some MY10 rear lights (slightly darker than current), 10+12mm spacers, lower it by 20mm, larger & darker wheels (19in RS3 Rotors!) and you're there

    Re the remap I had my 2.0T done by AMD Woking. I'm fairly impressed with the power increase but a little disappointed they did not send me a certificate as promised - had no response from phonecalls and emails so kinda left a sour taste in the mouth :/

    Not big fun or red cars at all however Black edition wheels and grill look rather good on a red S3. On top of that dont forget privacy glass it will give it nice contrast and more depth to the red paint.

    Be patient. English is tough.

    Thanks.Colour is Brilliant Red,may go with some bbs wheels at some point.Are you happy with the remap,surprised they have not responded to your calls/emails.

    Will definitely have the windows tinted from B Pillar back.Not to sure about the Black Edition Grilles on red,although they do seem to suit some colours better than others.I do like the rotor style wheels but may change to a set of bbs wheels.

    Wow you travelled all the way up to Hull

    I saw a nice S3 in Ibis White in Wigan but it's a little far from me in Essex haha

    I think I'm too fussy thought I want a facelift model with privacy glass, heated seats, flat bottom multi function wheel and RNS-E (altho the one in Wigan didn't have RNS-E I'd just get Audi to do it) only thing putting me off is buying privately as I'd rather the comfort of a dealer selling but the ones on Audi website are too much for too little imo anyway

    Thats not unusual for me to travel to buy a car,as it can worth your while to do so.
    You can save alot of money buying privately,you just have to do the research.

    Understand what your saying about buying from the dealer,and of course there are some very good finance deals on offer..
