    S3 Gone

    Well my S3 went today,I decided that I just dont use it enough and had got to a break even point with the finance and with the way the country is going regarding fuel prices etc thought it a good time to let it go.
    We had 4/5 dealers trying the normal and one genuine buyer.
    Polished up and collected this afternoon.
    Dont know what if anything I will replace it with as I have my trusty Astra estate as a workhorse.

    There is an SLK 55 AMG near me, I keep seeing, no, hearing it. They sound awsome. I'm toying with getting one for a litte while for a bit of fun (won't be for a while yet though!!). I reckon some of those cars will take a hit in price if the cost of petrol stays as is!!!

    Gosh I am shocked at that, I would have expected the SLK55 to be off with a 5.5l engine and 360bhp/510Nm.

    If he's just sold the car from a financial perspective he's not likely to go for the Merc the waythat will gobble fuel.

    I was speaking to a friend yesterday who has a caterham 400, apparently its a sign of the times with many of these for sale also at the moment, credit crunch and all that.

    I find it hard to believe she even drives, let alone an slk.

    After looking around at whats available (and what I can afford) I think I will stick my car allowance in the bank and wait untill a DSG/TIP gearbox version of the S3 comes out (should be about next April at least thats what a not so little bird told me)
