hi there, im a long time lurker but have finally got off my ass and made an account here as i am thinking about getting a used s3.
i've been looking around for a few months now but prices have only recently slid down towards the 20k'ish mark, so i can finally justify the purchase
all the cars are relatively new but are there any particular things i should be checking for bar the usual - service history, curbed alloys, dents/knocks on the bodywork, interior condition etc etc?
is factory sat-nav/dvd combo any good and what is it like when it comes to ipod control? my current car (99 reg, a3 1.8t sport) has an alpine 9850ri and it does a very good job of controlling my ipod. my mate has a new golf with the standard fit radio/cd and his ipod thing is terrible in comparison.
how comfortable are the bucket seats compared to the regular seats for longer journeys? they are a bit of a rare option but i have seen some cars with them, though i have yet to try them out myself - the s3 i test drove at my local dealer only had regular seats.
thats all i can think of at the moment, no doubt ill probably think of other things to ask later. thanks in advance!
