    Hullo there

    Hi there,Mark from Cumbernauld here-came across from seat-cupra.net.
    I am considering buying an A3 S-LINE 3.2 V6 Quattro(56 plate) which I am going to look at on Monday,and figured this would be the ideal place for hints and tips.
    My current chariot is a Mondeo ST TDCI(56 plate)and my car before that was a Seat Leon Cupra 20vt.
    Any hints and tips are welcome,and if I get the A3 am looking forward to posting here!!

    Glad your liking it. You could also retrofit most of the stuff thats missing through time and when money allows. Lots of Guides over on the A3 section. Have a read at your leisure. Happy
