    Thumbs up It's all over!

    Well thats my days of Audi ownership over. My beloved S3 is now looking for new ownership at Mechargs Dealership in Glasgow. Just like to thank everyone here who helped out when required. A good site, though of late I have noticed alot of post hyjacking. Many happy days were had reading through thoughts of other users. All the best chaps....

    Oh I have some goodies from my S3 which I will offer up on the classified section to see if anyone on here is interested.

    Free Bur berry flat cap with every car..

    Never mind... Enjoy the car, especially the 5 pot, remember its a Volvo engine, thats a distant relative of the old Audi 5 pot so in theory you've got an Audi heart, its the shell.. try and squeeze the Blue oval in amongst the four rings and you'll be safe

    What colour did you go for? I'm told it was only available in orange am I wrong?

    Oh so boring..... Don't knock it till u try one. I had Fords before my S3, that were on a par with Audi. Not many cars you can buy from a dealer keep three years and trade it in for 3K less than you paid for it. Oh and it wasn't an Audi. I was looking at changing for a new A4 S-line special as my main requirement was 4 doors, however I found most of the Audi dealers within 50 miles to be a little pretentious. It was then I looked at a Golf GTi, then drove the ST. I found it to be better drive and greater value for my needs.
    Everyone is entitled to there opinion, but stereotyping all is a little childish.

    Ah for those interested it is NOT orange but Performance blue. Oh and it comes with 4 of the most comfortable Recaro seats I have ever sat in.

    I'll drive well, being a current Ford.
    The last Focus was brilliant to drive...I've not driven a new ST yet...but have no doubt it'll be superb to drive.
    Unlike standard S3s...

    Enjoy it...

    I actually like that Focus ST. Clarkson reckoned it was the nuts and he slates off everything!

    You'd have to have it in the Tango orange though, it should be the law!!!

    I was only joking!

    I dont mind Fords but it has to be something sporty before i would look at them.
    Focus ST in blue is the one i would go for. Not a fan of the orange one.

    Cheers guys. Car seems great to drive, had a run out to Livingstone last night and managed to get a little blast in it on the motorway. As its still getting run in I didn't hammer it but I was impressed. It has so much grunt and it seems so effortless unlike the S3. I found the S3 to always be screaming its head off when you went for it, but the focus seemed to be so relaxed (almost laid back). The noise it makes on kick down is awesome, and thats with the standard pipes. Altogether a great car to drive. I loved my S3 thought, it was the dogs, but priorities change and other newer cars are going to improve all the time. Anyone thinking of changing my advise would be to try one out, you won't be disappointed. Oh the ST3's can be difficult to get hold of as they are in demand, one dealer wanted me to wait till mid December for delivery and I wouldn't get a colour choice.

    Happy days are here again...

    On a more serious note, they are rather nice cars to drive and do look the part, had a go in my friends while I was deciding between the GTI and Focus but decided on the GTI, the ST3 is very popular with the squaddies round where I am (I work for the British Military in Germany) and I wanted summit a bit more rarer with 5 doors...

    Machargs have built a new place just along the road from the old one. Scotland's biggest indoor car showroom. They are dealers for Ford and Mazda. Also large selection of used including Prestige and Performance showroom.


    Yes it is a Turbo lump. Uses the old Volvo T5 engine (2.5 litre)

    Nice choice on the Golf, thoght the focus had more options as standard over the GTi.

    Could well be, I didnt look into the Ford enough to find out, at time of ordering there wasnt a 5 door version which was my main requirement.
