    Got my S3...

    Firstly hello to the forum as im fairly new here and have just bought an S3 on monday to replace my mk5 gti golf.
    I originally had a new scirocco ordered from vw but i just started thinking what can i get nearly new for the same kind of cash and sure enough i stumbled across the s3. Mines a nov 08 registered, 08 model year car, 9k miles, in sprint blue, with bose, phone prep in armrest, the standard cd sat nav, and with the black leather and silver alcantara centres. i think thats all! I managed to get a great deal on it at 23,500
    Heres my first pics of it, excuse the dirt.....











    Anyhow im chuffed to bits with the car so far except that i cant get the bluetooth to work so its going back to audi on friday for a look. Its just a touch faster than my gti was but gets its power down alot better especially in the wet. I even managed to get 35mpg on the run home of 120 miles.
    ive already tracked down a fbmfsw (cheers jams3) and i'll be getting it remaped when the time is right, probably be next spring now.

    Paul.

    looks good - much nicer than the silver one I was looking at on the outside. I assume there was a typo and you meant nov 07 registered?

    Am I missing something here? November 08 registered and it's on a 57 plate? If you meant November 07 it would be an 07 plate though.

    I'm very confused.

    Nice car by the way, Sprint Blue is far and away the best colour for any Audi S car, and I've never seen that interior combo before, reminds me of the Recaro's in the old S3.

    Eh?

    A November 07 registration would be a 57 plate, would it not?

    Looking good - Didn't you have a white GTI before. And yes get a re-map, make's it a completely different animal.

    And to everyone else confused about the plate, I think he meant Nov. 2007 registered on a 57 plate, but its an 08 model year - Correct me if Im wrong

    Looks stunning. I have just ordered one and your pics have stopped me wondering about what colour to have. I think I have looked at every colour and picture on the net....It was down to sprint blue or Aruba blue. After 3 black cars in a row I think i have punished myself enough LOL
