    What your total budget?

    I take it you also have a current car to part ex as I think you'll struggle to find a straight S3 for 6-7 grand.

    There is only one S3, they are all Quattro! There was a facelift around 2000, look for single piece headlamps, red/white rear lenses, different badges and dashboard, and 225BHP(on paper) for the facelift version, though you'll most probably be looking at a pre-facelift 210bhp on your budget.
    Body on the S3 is slightly wider than those of an A3 aswell.

    Goodluck
