    Not to everyone's taste, but a rare Tormalin S3, not a one off as the ad title suggests!

    Good find!

    I like it but not enough to buy it.............. I like my s3's boring Barry in colour but lethal under the bonnet, I'm waiting for tuffty to have a moment of clarity and sell me his.....! Lol , ( like that will ever happen ?)

    He speaks the truth....
    Black is deffo the fastest colour to bankrupt you.

    I like the colour of that S3 Joe posted, but the owner has put too high a value on it imho

    Current owner says he's only had it 7 months so he might not even be aware of the bump to be fair,

    I wouldn't of paid 6k for that a few months back knowing it had been hit.

    Well it's the same number plate and like the owner mentioned it's a rare colour. Hmmm cheeky, certainly not at that price. Plus I agree, silver is the fastest colour, I got a speeding ticket on Christmas Day to prove it lol

    Only interior pic is as far away from the dash as you can get ? And its had a prang ?

    The only S3 I would have is a Mocha coloured one,that'd be a rare beast.

    For the record Blacks the fastest

    Nice to know that S3's are still selling in that range. Ming blue for the win!

    p.s. is 70 000 miles, low milage? try 38 000 :blow:

    I quite like that, its different. With some subtle tweeks you could get that looking very smart..

    Dont think that the bump (having seen it) would be enough to be a real no no for someone, providing is not on vcar. Bit naughty not putting it on ad, but then again hes not had it long so may not have known..

    Looks like there are some low milers around Jersey.. Mines at 54k.

    I agree s3Easty, would be a nice car for someone. Not sure what the milage of other s3's are in Jersey, don't think there is a meet/club over here. But i'm sure they will be averagely lower than UK, can't exactly go far here!!

    Thats very true, I recall when I worked for Honda that we ended up getting a couple of cars traded in that were mega low compared to what the uk equivelants were for same age.
    Just to clarify im in uk. Could have phrased the last post a bit better.oops.
    Back to topic, I agree with some of the guys comments that 6k would be a little OTT.

    So, a car's had a bump.
    It's been repaired properly - to a really good standard according to the thread linked to.
    It's not been written off.

    Why should a Vendor declare this?
    It's for the buyer to inspect the car. If he's not competent to do so then should get an RAC or AA Inspection.

    On the other hand if a purchaser asks if its had bodywork then he should say that it has
