    2002 Merlin Purple S3

    2002 Merlin Purple Audi S3










    After two years of ownership I have decided I fancy a change.

    Very rare Merlin Purple S3 with a great spec.

    Complelety standard car in full working order.

    It hasn't given me a day of trouble in the two years of ownership and the 35k I have driven in it! Will be very sad to see it go as it's probably my favourite of all the cars I have owned, gets commmented on all the time.

    Here is the full spec of the car.

    Standard S3 225 BAM
    Xenon Lights
    Silver leather
    Armrest
    3rd Rear Headrest
    Heather Seats
    Cruise Control
    BOSE 6CD Symphony Double Din
    Aluminium Mirrors
    Sunroof
    Parking Sensors
    18" RSTT Alloys

    Body work is in great condition as is the interior, it really does not look like a 10 year old car with high miles.

    Sadly the mileage is high, 147k and will be climbing as I am still using the car daily.

    The car comes with a folder full of history from day one, receipts for everything it has had in the last 10 years, it has full history (not all Audi) and since I have owned the car I have serviced it myself with all genuine parts (receipts for the parts are in the receipt book). Last service was carried out this weekend along with four wheel alignment.

    The car has had 3 owners, comes with 10 months tax and 3.5 months MOT (although I could be persuaded to stick a full MOT on if I get the asking price as it will go through no problem).

    I have used the car daily over the last two years to do my 70 mile round trip to work and it reguarly returns 32mpg with motorway driving.

    I have tried to price it accordingly based on the high miles but excellent condition.

    Best to PM me rather than reply to this thread if you are interested.

    Cheers mate, I fancy a Z4, something very different to the S3!

    Have to see how my resolve to sell holds out though, I do love this car :/

    Yep, although I'm a fair believer in condition over low miles....from experience, low miles doesn't mean looked after

    Lovely car mate, and uber rare colour, looks awesome with the ivory interior.

    I totally agree with you about condition over mileage, my s3 is a fine example of that too, it's on 155k, nearly 156k actually, and it has high owners, but the car is in outstanding condition with an a4 ring binder of receipts and full service history, and it's my 3rd and probably best s3.

    People shouldn't be put off by high mileage on these cars if they've been well looked after, which this looks like it clearly has. If I was in the Market for one I'd definitely be contacting you about this.
