    Soon to be S3 owner

    Hi all.
    Currently got a 1997 Mk3 Golf GTi 16V (bit of a moutful) but about to order an S3.
    6 left unregistered new by Audi so trying to get one of those - 18" alloys, Bose ICE, silver, Leather/Alcantra, etc.
    Any owners have any advice about running costs, problems, etc?
    Obviously a decent step up in price and performance.
    Wife and I are taking over the in-laws international trading business in Canary Wharf!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Only real thing to watch out for is the coilpacks... make sure they are revised ones.

    Will do.
    Got to be a 225bhp one either new or almost new.
    I assume they'll be okay?

    Welcome, if you can find one snap it up. Quality cars, as Rich said coilpacks but otherwise vwey little on a new one. Just have a gander in the S3 forum for more info.

    On the running costs AVS (Audi Variable Servicing) means every 15K or more between services with costs from 200-400 for a monior and a major at 400+. To fill up with Optimax (a must) will set you back 45.00+ so bear that in mind.
