    Just got rid of my S3, and wanted to say thanks for all the useful advice on the forum, it's been invaluble during my ownership.

    Absolutely loved the car, not a bad word to say say about it, or any of the dealers whenever I dealt with them. Lost a fair wack on it over the 8 months of ownership....almost £10k but anyway, cars make you do silly things, hence why I have just picked up a Aston V8 Vantage!

    Take it easy guys and thanks again.

    Nothing looks as good as an ASTON on the road IMO.

    Nice one matey, one of the best looking cars around, simply stunning. Blagged a drive in one this time last year from Stratstone 06 plate 75k, this year same car 40k ish what a bargain.

    Did you buy from a dealer or private, what sort of deal did you get ??

    Enjoy anyway !!

    Cheers for the comments guys, the sound still makes me smile like a cheshire cat!!

    Mark, I bought it from a dealer, prob paid a slight premium but I think when buying a car like this it's worth having the dealer back-up. I got a good deal, I had my eye on this specific one for a couple of weeks then the dealer reduced it by 4k, and then I managed to get another 2.5k off. So I was pretty happy, although I didn't get a great price for my S3!

    It's not the most practical car.....but f**k it...you only live once!

    Beautiful car!

    There is one that lives near me, and the reg includes '007' somehow. Not sure if that is cool or sad...

    Enjoy it!

    Cheers,
