    Congratulations, you 'peased' with yourself?? Had a little accident in your trousers did we.

    All I can say is thank god for that, I wondered if you were ever going to find your true love...the S3.

    Sorry, only kidding. What colour/spec is your new baby? And do you need any help with some of the advanced features?
    A gearbox with a new fangled thing called "synchromesh"
    Also you won't need to carry that 10 litre drum of Castrol GTX around in the boot anymore.
    Maybe one your first mods should be strapping a blue smoke cannister to the exhaust, to make you feel at home!!

    Blimey i got my first S3 when i was 21 too, and i went all the way to N. Ireland to buy it and managed to hit the top end on my way home. Such a juvenile thing to do. Couldnt work the stereo out all the way home and then got back and took a friend out after driving 14 hours - was really tired and nearly lost control over a roundabout ..........

    I learnt from that one.


    It was a bit quicker than my R5 GT

    Flipper's not quite the same shape he was when you last saw him. A kinda 206esque remodeling and a tracking set-up ideal for high speed oval circuits. really quite gutting.

    Tanya,

    First of all congratulations. You are one lucky girl getting an S3 for 13K. But obviously you are a woman who gets what she wants. And for that reason, may I suggest you ring my mobile number on 0796... OK only joking. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif But you will have blokes crawling round you now you have an S3 (but I suspect they probably were before anyway, despite the metro).

    Seriously though, well done. You got a good deal there. But just take care, and watch out for those blasted coil-packs.

    Hi Tanya

    Congratulations on your new purchase - what a beautiful car. Glad you managed to find your dream car. I won't let on how old him indoors was before he got an S3! :)

    And I'm definitely not posting piccies of me with my Audi given that you, Loretta and Audi_Girl are young and pretty!
