    Just remember there are two new S3s, pre-facelift and facelift, the pre facelift suffers a bit more depreciation and has a higher tax band than the new S3.

    TBH, the S3's are fairly bullet proof.

    Not owning one but looking at the posts in this part of the forum suggests that the fuel pump seems to be a bit of a prob but TBH, if its 2008, you shouldn't need to worry about a thing as it will be under warranty.

    I hope to get a S3 in a 1 and a half to 2 years and I have been vaguely looking into them on the net, a few forums and reviews from parkers and others but there's nothing that would put me off one!

    I wouldnt worry about a thing and go get a S3 and enjoy it :D

    There used to be a saving as the new S3 (facelift) had lower emissions, something has changed because the only saving you make is now from 2010 April.
