    S3 8l

    Looking at getting back in to an S3 after about ten years! Been having a look around the usual places, autotrader, pistonheads, here and gumtree and ebay

    Not too fussy about colour of car or interior, but must have a good service history and the more recent work done the better, evidence of clutch/flywheel replacements, turbos etc would be great, so a higher mileage one is prob where i'm looking with my budget in mind.

    What are the big jobs that would be nice to see done on a higher mileage car?

    facelift would be preferred but not too bothered either way.

    Prob preference would be

    noggy
    cream leather
    alu mirrors

    Anyone out there thinking of selling give me a shout
    and any that you think i should be looking at then post up!

    cheers!

    what do we think to this one? I haven't yet managed to have a chat with the dealer yet, he was with a customer and i'll touch base tomorrow...
    wheels aren't to my taste but they could be swapped out. looks like a multi function steering wheel! not seen one with it before?!

    Turns out this is a Cat C! Failed to mention it to me during about three phone calls! Asre! Only found out when a mate did a number plate check!

    Still no mention of this being a C on the advert, too much space taken up by all of the RAC smoke blowing..
