    New S3 pre facelift discount?

    Hi all,

    Just wondering what kind of discount could I expect to negotiate on a showroom pre facelift S3?? As obviously this is now an out of date model I am thinking a decent discount? The current sticker price is 34,745 so a pretty well optioned car with the following:

    flat bottom wheel
    parking sensors
    exclusive titanium alloys
    bose
    auto dimming folding door mirrors and light sensor
    tyre pressure warning
    GSM phone prep
    tinted windows
    Adaptive lights
    black styling pack
    cruise
    dvd sat nav with mp3 player
    front centre arm rest
    non smoking pack
    ipod connection
    bucket seats

    All opinions greatly received

    Many thanks

    Buy the new one and leave the sat nav out then retro fit it aferwards. Save yourself about 4-5 grand on the price you have posted above.

    Try on the Audi configurator on audi.co.uk and then you should get about 2 grand discount off from the dealer.

    Thanks for all the replies. I've been thinking if 10% is achievable on a brand spanking new facelift then surely more than 10% should be possible for a "been sat in a played around by loads of people old shape"? Or am I missing something here? Also does anyone know whether Audi entertain removing options from a built car?

    Many thanks

    i dont think so; there are still people who will pay the ticket price to be honest and then take lower discount on the pre facelift.
    In my opinion, the car you mention is too highly specced with things that you dont need. A 28K factory order will get you most if not all the must haves (after discount of course).
    7-10% seems acheivable these days; more than that I have never heard of
