    The edition is a lovely car, but the S3 is in a different league. Make sure you get one with buckets...

    Good choice, I went from a Mk5 Gti to the S3 and if you like the Golf, you will love the S3.

    I was in a similar position to you 2 years ago, looking for a lightly used S3 in Sprint blue, decent spec, low miles, mint condition etc....
    It took a good couple of months tracking Autotrader, Pistonheads, Forums so patience is key to find the right car and I ended up travelling from the North East to Slough!

    Good luck

    Paul
    Now:
    -MK2 Golf Gti 16V/VR6, Oak Green, Shrick, Intake, Decat, Kish Retrim, Lenso BSX..
    -BMW 335d Xdrive, Estoril Blue, fully loaded.

    Before:
    S3 (8P), Ibis, DSG, Milltek, SHARK

    BMW 320d M Sport
    S3 (8P), Sprint, REVO, H&R Springs, BBS CHs,

    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - REVO Stage1, Red.
    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - Std, Shadow Blue
    Civic Type `R`
    Golf MK4 GTi 18T - 200bhp, MTM ECU, Forge DV
    Golf MK3 VR6 - Cat Back
    Corrado VR6 - JAMEX
    Corrado G60 - JAMEX, BRM Charger rebuild
    etc....

    Dealers have a 14% margin, expect to get 10 to 12% if you shop around.

    Dealers were given 11% last year on S3's, but they seem to be meeting their targets so 10% is a good deal if you can find one that is made, or a dealer has on order to be built, hence you have to decide if it has the right options, some S3's may have been sitting on Dealers forecourts for up to 6 months, Expect 12% on those, and they are the best deals for sure. The least deal you will get is when you order one to your spec, and it will take 3 months at least to your door.
    It took me ages to find one with the best options package I wanted with out having options I did not want or pay for, and then It is not perfect, I wanted parking sensors, and could not get a car with those and all the other things I wanted, so I would list all the options you really want in an preference order and start searching.
