    What do ya think ??

    I saw this 2.0TFSi Quattro S-Line while browsing Auto trader. It looks like a decent price and I love the colour (Misano I'm sure..)

    What do ya think??

    I'm thinking of arranging a test drive - I'm intrigued to see how this drives compared with my standard 225 S3. Has anyone changed their S3 for one of these? Any major drawbacks/plus points?

    ...... or do I wait for the new S3 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Also, note the 'Audi engine chipping' in the advert. Are dealers providing remaps now??

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    have you tried speccing up a car so a similar level on audi.co.uk? Would be interesting to see what it would have been new.

    I think Audi dealers have been offering a mod service for a while, though i'm not sure Audi UK approve, I remember a colleague getting new 1.8 A6 5 or 6 years ago and the dealer superchipping it

    Not a bad buy for the money, if you wait for the S3,stick another 8K on top. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Well spotted Mod. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    And it's got alcantara/leather, not an S-line then, so no Misano either.


    But still a nice buy.

    Re: What do ya think ??

    I had a 2.0TFSI DSG S-Line as a loaner from a warranty repair.

    my main gripes were the DSG dumping the clutch and the front-end handled like a boat.

    Other than that, the car seemed fast (not as fast as my standard s3 though), and was very comfortable.

    I reckon that in a manual, and with quattro, this car would be a very very nice car.....

    Defo an S-line - the Ad is wrong. Donkey dealer!

    I had a look at the car today, its got the 18s, S-line seats and body kit etc.

    I didn't have time to quiz the salesfolk about why they are so stupid [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    So, now that it IS an S-Line, how does the price look???

    Re: What do ya think ??

    I must admit mine IS Misano, but if I had to order and pay the extra 500? over a Brilliant red one I would think twice, people looking at mine have been amazed when I tell them its metallic, it only shows up under sunlight or when your about 6 inches away!!

    Now knock about 10% off for the discount you would get. Is 20k such a good price?

    Although having said that, 20k is a really good price considering what Audi dealers are asking - between 21k and 25k. That makes buying new very attractive (which is probably their intent). Year 2 and onwards is where depreciation kicks in: dealer forecourt prices of course, not what they will give you - you're always shafted there, no matter the year!

    Re: What do ya think ??

    The problem is though when you have a P/X, I went through the exact same thing, the Audi dealers that would give me a 10% discount on a new car also knocked more than that off my Audi A3 P/X when compared to athe dealers that were not offering 10% , Looking at Autorader to sell mine privately revealed that people were asking lower than what I had been offered P/X from the dealer with the 10% offer! I just bit the bullet in the end and did a vey similar thing to what you are thinking of. If you have no P/X a new one with 10% is the way forward
