    Sorry about being a bit of a negative nelly here, but i can't get my head round the fact that you've bought a car that you haven't test driven, have no idea if that car has any inherent faults, you have no idea on it's MPG and you've not even checked the cars performance figures or weight.

    Again sorry for being a bit negative, but you should have checked all those things out BEFORE you bought the car.

    Not sure how much help it will be now, but here is what MPG i'm seeing in my 2004/2005 V6

    Expensive to run if you dont have a short commute to work etc....

    Tax band K so 148.50 for 6 months and 270 for 12.

    Fun cars but thirsty on fuel with about 29 mpg if conservative!

    This was a response to a thread entitled 'S3 to R32 shoud I?'

    S3 to R32 should I?

    I wish I could get 29mpg out of mine but that noise and then you have the voice in my head. So I see on average 20mpg and on a bad day I would see about 25mpg if I'm lucky.

    Hehe

    If you use higher octane fuel like V-Power, Ultimate or Momentum you'll get better mpg. I can get 32/33 on a long run without too much trouble. Whether that remains the case when I swap out the exhaust is a different matter *lol*

    I also commute to work on my pushbike when I can, so fuel isn't so much of an issue thankfully

    I have a heavy right foot, and mine does around 200 to 250 miles a tank, I do town driving only, i rarely see over 20mpg but the best I've had on a long run is 32, i use momentum 99 but I don't notice any amazing gains over shell 98 etc.

    It sounds great though and its fun to drive, wish i got an auto though!

    If you are worried about mpg then the V6 isn't for you.

    There have been reported cases of the timing chains snapping on these engines - mainly on the R32 forum so beware of that otherwise enjoy the V6 noise!

    Here is some info on the chains - I changed them on our R32 a while back.
