    This might not be of much interest but I was looking on mobile.de (the german equivalent of autotrader) earlier and came across an 8P S3 that had done 280,000km, which is about 173,000 miles, I have posted a link to the advert below. At first I thought it must be wrong, but looking at the service book pics it appears correct! Just goes to show how well these cars can wear when looked after, up close it could be a complete dog though, wonder how it drives?!

    I've been looking at 8P's recently and have discounted a couple of higher mileage models, but beginning to think again now....hmmm back to the drawing board!

    that car looks amazing for the miles. i'm guessing that's because for it to have covered that many miles it must have been plodding the autobahn all day, so not likely to get worn out much.

    i'd still be scared off tho.

    This is why people put 'mainly motorway miles' in adverts.

    I've heard you can restore them by rubbing the leather with an eraser. Never tried it myself though.

    Or you can use Swissvax Leather Healer, which I did on my old 8L. It had done 143 000 miles at that point. The steering wheel was beyond shiny, and even some color was missing.

    One treatment - Problem solved! :)

    High Milage on a quality car with FSH would not put me off .Everything that goes has probably been replaced and it will probably run on for miles and miles more
