Had my A3 for around a year and a half now and it's been fine up until a few months ago. Turns out that it needs a fair bit of work on it which will make my bank account sad so I'm thinking about selling up. I've worked out that if I sold up and bought a cheaper run around, I could end up with a good chunk of £ in the bank.
I'm also a bit bored mine at the moment, and with it only being an FSI, there's not much I can do to it to make it faster. Me and my gf are also talking about getting our own place which is a big factor in the decision.
I want to save money, but I don't want a rust bucket that I'm amshamed of so I've been looking at older S3's. Pretty nippy as standard, cheapish to buy and potential there for modding and tuning when money allows.
I know I would miss the refinement of the 8P, as well as my RNSE but I'm dying for something with a bit more umph that isn't massively expensive.
So, the big question .... am I being stupid? What would you do/buy?
