    Hello all - I'm back and in looking for an S3

    Hi All

    Back again, was on here virually half my life upto 2 years ago, I bought brand new 08 S3 which I had wanted for about 3 years, took delivery and had the pleasure of it for about 3 months, then had to sell for desparate reasons!!

    Its taken me the 2 years to be in a position to be able to think about buying another one, and think this may be the time!!

    Been into the dealers today and thinking about the spec, as the spec I want will not be easy to find secondhand?

    Want facelift version with:

    Pearl Black
    Bucket Seats
    Bluetooth Prep
    Tinted rear windows
    Bose
    Parking Sensors

    Torn between the manual and DSG, any thoughts on this??

    Also don't want to pay Audi Ł1600 of my hard earned cash for SAT NAV, is there anywhere that retro fits this?? and what sort of money we looking at?

    So, if anyone knows of a car like this that is currently available please let me know!

    Cheers

    Lee

    I think I remember you Lee, yes you can retrofit it, but the new ones come with the 2010 Nav which is alot better, but nice spec you've picked.

    You can retrofit either, the newer ones go for around Ł900 + but they are hard to come by the older ones are Ł400+, you would need to retrofit the newer chrome knobs though, NHN is your man for that.

    N8, what is the score with tuning on here for S3's, had a look and can't seem to find much, is it in its own section now?

    It was superb Lee, if I had an S3 he'd be tuning mine, well I drive an A3 and he tuned mine

    N8, is it a smooth map, or is it quite aggressive? I had an APR on my last S3, but heard the GIAC was more aggressive and liked the idea of that.

    If you want aggressive and the opportunity to tune in stages then it's Revo you want, I've tried pretty much all of the market leaders to date and Revo is the ultimate mapper for the S3, everything is tried and tested and I would say ran by the majoity on here, it will cost you around Ł150 more but money well spent, each subsequent stage is an additional Ł50 ending in Stage 2+ with a claimed 350 - 370bhp

    Welcome back, you have gone for the perfect spec - see my sig LOL !!

    Hi Spin

    Thanks for that, yes I've also heard a lot about Revo, and yes I will be taking it to the hilt over time i.e stage 2+ ideally!

    Yes, good choice eh!!! lol

    I am also torn over getting the SatNav as had it in the last one, think I'll regret it if I don't, I know you can retro fit, but is it exactly the same as a factory fit?

    Also DSG, hearing a lot of good things about it, has an M3 with it on, and it was the worst experience I had with a car realy clunky and unresponsive, but hear Audi have it spot on??

    Decisions decisions !!! Also another 3K for those 2 options! OUCHŁŁŁŁŁŁŁŁŁŁ
