Looking as changing from vw to audi. Needed a 4 door when the baby came along and now fancy a change from my Bora. I've always fancied an S3 but I've also also had a hankering for an estate (autobahn cruiser stylee) Been to look at 2 cars this week
1. 2002 S3 in that purpley blue colour with the blue alcantara/leather seats. 80k miles, FASH, lots spent on it, loads of bills, 2 prev owners, last being DR Brain, who gave it anything it needed. 6.5k but only offered 2k part ex
2.2004 1.8t 190 a4 avant s-line in silver. FSH, 85k, offered 2.5k trade in. 7k
Pro's and Cons for both cars. I don't have time to mess around with cars like I used to what with work and a 1 year old daughter. S3 is the heart purchase, A4 is the head. Could keep the A4 for a good 5 years or so, S3 would be getting a bit long in the tooth in maybe 2-3 years. S3 is insurance 17/18, A4 is 14. MPG's pretty similar.
Whats milage like to these two engines?
Remap potential for better throttle response with better mpg's?
Any horror stories?
