    Is now a good time to buy an S3..

    .. what with the September plates and new 8v model incoming now?

    I'm looking to purchase within the next 4 weeks with a budget of around 20k. Should I hold off a bit longer?

    Wonder what the waiting list on the new model is .. May think about getting 15k worth of finance to cover the shortfall

    If you can hold out, I'd look for a new one when they get released. The 8P is a little dated now.

    Heh - talking of fugly .. I'm also seriously considering a brand new M135i .. There appear to be some great discounts to be had of around 15-20% going on with the rush to the new plate ( Depending on how you finance it of course )

    I'd buy an 8P S3 now and remap it or wait and get an A45 AMG:] they are amazing and much better then 8P/8V S3 tbh.

    That's what I replaced my Stage 2 S3 with. Test drive one with caution - it's unlikely you'll be able to keep your wallet in your pocket afterwards!

    Most people would struggle to tell the difference between 8P and 8V.
