    We are all different.

    If it takes your fancy, then go for it.

    Live your life as if no-one is watching you.

    Hmm, must have been 13 very very carefull owners. These things break if you look at them wrong.

    I'm not sure I'd want to replace an S3 with it, but I could see the appeal of keeping it mint in the garage and using it on nice days, they were pretty legendary cars in their day.

    Keep the S3 and buy this aswell! lol It can only go up in value! Regarding the 14 owners, HPI it, cars that are stolen recovered automatically have 10 owners, then it goes upwards from that figure.

    Keep the s3 and get this on classic insurance and use it on weekends and nice days. I have my s3 and 2 Clio Williams a 1 and 2 they both need work but I like having projects to keep me busy don't think you should rely on the Citroen as a daily really, I do have a soft spot for rare older motors nearly bought an r5 turbo last year

    Not sure, I only found out when my cousin purchased a mk2 Golf with 11 owners, and HPI'd it at a later date, it came back as stolen recovered. And a thread came up on another forum said it will show 10 owners on the logbook?

    My mate had a non gto one of these and it's so scary
    Hill starts his handbrake didn't work and the foot brake wasn't strong enough to hold it so he was clutch burning all the way up a hill for like a mile ;) seats are very soft though

    Oh boy, I thought I was mad when I bought the convertible earlier this year. You're going to replace your S3..I'm afraid you'll have to be confined to a straitjacket!

    Yes you are mad - I did similar when I had my MK5 Fiesta Zetec-S - had one when I was 19 and loved it.
    Got an ibiza cupra at 21 then tried another MK5 Zetec-S last year, couldnt get used to the drop in build quality.etc between the ibiza.
