Hi everyone on the hunt for a new car just now I previously owned a facelift focus ST had it mapped and other things done to it and after 3 years of putting fuel in the thing it started to annoy me something awful I don't know why it's just did lol, so I traded that in and for some ghastly reason/impulse buy bought a 2.0 cdti insignia -.-, 16 months into owning that pensioners car I'm bored, at the age of 25 I don't think that's the right car for me so I'm looking for something which is sporty and fairly fast but also quite good on fuel also, so I went to a garage today and they had an S3 on the forecourt this car never even popped into my mind until I seen it, so I was speaking to the sales man and his boss was telling me had an s3 some country driving and some town driving and was averaging 37 mpg this wasn't driving it like miss daisy but wasn't hammering it this is what he told me, my focus when I traded that in was averaging 17.8mpg -.- and when you gave it beans the instantaneous mpg would go down to between 3-5 mpg just awful!.
The s3 is a very nice looking car full leather satnav etc the only thing is it's an 08 plate with 48k miles on the clock when I seem to think of it as a car that's nearly 6 years old 15,500 is a little whack to pay for something at that age or is it? Why are they so expensive I realise your paying for Audi and the car starts at about 30k when released but how do they keep their value so well?. This brings me to the question would this be a silly mistake or not? Also is their any common problems with the s3 are prone to? Any tell tail signs under the bonnet so I can tell if it's been modded? And is this type of mpg really achievable in an s3? I don't rag my cars but I like to drive them the way they were intended to be driven when I feel like it which isn't all the time, Here's the link of the car Used Audi S3 Hatchback S3 Quattro 3dr in Edinburgh, Midlothian | Deutschmarque Ltd
