    seems to be just what im after but the price is putting me off!

    Am i missing something or could this be a geniune good deal.

    does /2 leatehr seats mean it as the alacantra (sp) bits up the middle?

    Spose i'll have to enquire about hpi, tax, mot an that might bring something up.

    Other than the website it quotes looking like a 5yr olds done it an do contact details or any other info other than car pics


    any help would be great!

    dont even know where the garage is, autotrader says its 187miles from edinburgh but it always works out longer than that. dont wanna trek down an find out its a bit of ****, or worse buy it then find out!

    MAy just be realistically priced! It is 6 -7 years old now, the hald leather is not that desirable I am afraid, (not with the garish blue alcantara!) and whilst it has bose and chrome mirrors, these could be aftermarket addistions, (ntot hat it makes too much diff). Also, if it is an import, it could knock say 400 quid off.....?
    I got my 53 plat 44k mint black S3 before xmas with sunroof (import) FASH, full leathers bose, cruise and it was lass than £13k. So, this one is maybe not so good a spec, 3 or 4 years older, 20k more miles.......you can sort of see its maybe not THAT cheap and it does say OVNO.
    Worth checking it out though I reckon if you liek the spec.
    BUT i found on autotrader, some advertisers take the pxxs and advertise for an attrative price, then when you call its , oh there's an error on the list, its actually £1000 more.......
    had that twice when looking for dealers S3's I thinki they do it to stand outform all the others!!

    Y reg was March-September 2001 so it's nearly 6 years old.

    Problem is you can't tell what condition it's in from that advert. I know it says "exc cond" but one man's excellent is another man's poor. The picture is very small.

    I think it's worth looking into further, from that advert there's nothing to say it's anything other than just a good deal.
