I have not posted on here in nearly 5 years, i used to have an 8p s3 which i loved but a change in careers and fortunes meant it was sold. I ended up joining the motor trade starting with Ford, moving to BMW and now with Audi where i have worked since Novemeber. Anyway they do quite a good staff scheme where i could have a brand new s3 sportback manual for £379 per month on a 12 month deal based on 12k p/a and zero deposit. This is based on a standard car any extras start to bump the monthly payments up dramatically as it doesnt increase the residual and is in essence paid for over 12 months. So an Amalfi white s3 may be on the cards!!
