    s3 cancelled!!!!

    hi all i had to cancel my s3 order due to the dealer measing me about and giving me finance quotes that doubled. i was first told that the monthly payments would be 550+ vat and it eended up going up to 950 +VAT

    And due to the on going dealing with my salesperson who wasnt very helpful any in case made me cancel my order and get my 1000 deposit back which isnt too bad. I have now ordered a range rover sport for a much better deal. i know that i have changed cars completly but i always had my eye on the range and it looks like the s3 wasnt ment to be! But i pick my range up at the end of the month here is a picture for you guys.





    i will hopefully return with an audi in a couple of years maybe the new rs4 whenever it appears!

    take care all

    Thanks for the help with the questions i had with regards to the s3

    deep pockets come as a requisite for the RR sport, gas prices are not gonna stay low for long IMHO, 4.4 will swallow gas quicker than a hollywood hooker swallows anything, ask Hugh Grant

    im not bothered about the fuel aspect of it will be using the car for wrk aswel so i wil benefit from it!

    s4 petrol no wonder u were only getting that mpg it would be hard to keep ur foot of the gas!

    it may be cheaper but will last longer than petrol! and its daft having a petrol jeep!

    nah mate it was naturally aspirated so no turbo, so completely different drive to the older S4 that was turbo charged, stunning car but IMHO lacked power tbh which pissed me of as having the S3 at same time was good comparison overall, but still it was a superb car except the mpg

    its amazing it had after revo 365bhp but my S3 with 275bhp was more speedy, but given weight of the v8 4.2 you can understand why huh, lol

    V8's are on there way out anyway, even detroit the V8 capital are stopping making, just not needed tbh.

    get the overfinch remap on it and for its size it will be fair quick, gives 320BHP and 590lb/ft with that amount you really do just shoot for the horizon,
    a mate has a full overfinched RRsport TDV8, the full bodykit, remap, brakes, interior, everything in white (each to their own) it does go like hell and being V8 still makes a nice sound, that might be down to the overfinch exhaust i havent heard a standard one.

    Well i'm guessing you got a seriously good deal on that range for several reasons.... 1. The colour. White 4x4's and saloons really are a bit of a fad. Hot hatches e.g. the S3 will have a much longer lifespan in white.
    2. Nobody wants one due to tax, depreciation, fuel economy etc. There's a big land rover and range rover dealership locally to me which is closing shortly basically because they're not selling any whatsoever.

    If you got a great price then good luck with it, looks a nice motor!
