Newbie - potential S3 purchase
Hi all, new to Audi so bare with me.
I'm considering purchasing an S3 in the new year as they appear to offer good value currently I guess with the new model now on the market their prices have dropped.
I currently run around in a 2003 Golf GT TDi 130 and I've just had a guts full of diesel performance.. its just not my cup of tea, first and last diesel I will own. I've come from BMW and now I fancy an Audi.
My question is.. Is it worth the extra money for a facelift model? I've seen plenty of 2007 models with reasonable mileage, good nick, FSH etc for around £12-13k, then the facelift models with similar mileage are roughly £16-17k. Now obviously they are younger so more money, thats a no brainer.
But is it just a few grand to have a newer car? From what I can establish they just have new wheels (I'd replace with 19" rims anyway), different lower grill, more modern looking lights? anything else bar a few shiny bits inside? Any mechanical upgrades of note to justify the extra cash? Is the pre-facelift lacking anything key?
Cheers in advance
