I been geeting itchy feet and thinking of getting a newer S3. I bought my cuurent about a year ago and I love it. The thing is though I want to get one of the last '03 225ps models, preferably in Dolphin, with all the toys including Sat-Nav, Bose etc. I intend it to be my last car change for at least 4 years as I have changed my car a lot over the last 3 years and my priorities are shifting with age and all that!!

So, I'm weighing up my options and checking out prices etc. At the moment there seems to be a few on the market but as you would expect they are at typical prices.
I would expect to sell my S3 for a good price as it's very clean. I can wait until the summer before buying and I should be able to save a few bob 'til then but I am tempted to go for it now.
What I'm looking for is advice on trading my existing Y plate S3 for an 03 now or should I wait for the summer.
Is there any benefit to trading in or would I be better selling privately?
What price should I look to pay on an 03 with all the goodies? What do you think I would get (approx) for my S3 now privately compared to trade?
Y plate, 210ps, 30K, Ebony, NO dents, scratches, kerbies, Bose 6CD, Alu' Mirrors.
