    Negative equity is less risky if you take gap insurance - then the only problem is if you want to sell it before the finance is paid off.

    When you have found the car try calling this guy I know called Adam Stott he sorted me a good deal on my s3, his number is 07702191357, if you go with him just tell him Matthew Scopes refered you.

    Hope it helps, Matt

    What did you get for yours btw Boycie?

    Also I hope you checked the early settlement clauses, make sure if you become flush you can settle up easily with no massive penalties or huge interest lump to pay.

    My parents have bought mine as long as I return it to as standard as possible. My brother has just graduated from his law degree and his job doesnt start until 2010 so he will be around for another year, therefore he needs transport - my Dad just said that to me last night so I was quite shocked and pleased!

    You always call me boycie lol you must have a very fat index finger :p

    Thanks lad

    Plan to transfer over as much as possible - vents, steering wheel, alloys once I chose what coilovers to go for (If I chose to do so!!), rear lights etc...

    I will be selling the trim, head unit, coilovers etc....

    I will plan to fit my audio but that wont be for a while yet - mine will not directly fit due to the s3 having a shallower boot so I will probably try modify it in some way or my mate might be sellin a build he had for his R32 which I might see if it will fit!!

    Hope I do not get the bad tuning bug lol

    Its called AJ, a false sense of security, buying the S3 is the worst possible thing you could do for less tuning, lol, so lets start a thread for votes on Boycie's 1st mod, feck it I'm gonna.

    I've actually been waiting for you to say. "I'm not going to mod" I knew you would bite :lmfao:

    You now have an even better platform to mod with. Get weitecs or KWs with the money you make back.

    No Boydie, those KWs don't fit I'm afraid. Well don't pull 19"s on without coilys, otherwise I'll be calling you an irish tractor boy....

    Well in Boydie, looking forward to seeing the finished article - finished after the mods you will do. :moa::salute:


    About the car: same as mine SB with the silver inserts on the leather. Tell you what, if it is still on original tyres @ 16k it has had an easy life - which good news for you. :s3addict:

    probably had a new engine due to someone knocking the bottom off the sump ,either that or flood damage ?

    a cat d is ok if you plan on keeping a car a number of years to the point that the resale value is that low the car isnt worth checking to see if its on the register


    and in 5 years time the car will still be worth alot of £

    dont buy the cat d

    it will be like the 24th DEcember and trying to get to sleep, you'll be tooooo excited to sleep. Don't worry about fuel, when your 65 i'm sure you will look back and think i'm glad i had the S3 rather than saving £000000's on fuel and having a large stash of werthers :)

    I keep getting tempted by the S3 but strangly i'm drawn towards the Leon Cupra, similar engine, less grip but sooooo much cheaper which gives me more money to spend on fuel :) oh and i'm not keen on having the same style car twice !

    I drove my mates tuned cupra and liked it but couldnt warm to the interior - plus I do not have or plan to have kids so no need for a 5 door! lol

    Also, in Northern Ireland, there are sooooooooooooo many kitted leons!!
