    Obviously, the newer the car, the shorter you would have owned it.

    Mine is a T99 model, and I have owned it since 30th August 2001, so coming upto 7 years, which is probably the longest ownership on this forum, how long have you owned yours?

    Have a 02 plate and have driven it since May 2002, but have owned it from May 2004. It was my company car and still is. Has now done 157k and will run it to 200k and beyond.

    I've had mine for 31 days now, but it only really gets driven at weekends, so only done 1050 miles, including a long weekend in the Lake District.

    Definitely no regrets, but thanks to Dave_B, I now have to get a remap!!!

    Cheers,

    7 years is impressive Jojo.

    ...Had mine since Jan 2005, 2001(Y) and joined the forum a few days before I picked her up. I'm the 2nd owner and providing I dont stack it, will keep her for as long as I can.

    WOW! I take it you took delivery with only a handful of miles on the clock. Mine had 25k miles when I picked it up, it's on something like 55k miles, so 30k'ish miles in almost 7 years during my ownership. I used it almost daily in the forst couple of years, and since doing the brakes, suspension and remap, it's become more of a weekend car..... or maybe the mk2 Golf GTI is just too much fun to drive lol. :racer:

    Yeah it was my brand new company car back then with 9 miles on the clock or something!!

    The 225bhp has been great and doing all of the 157k ish miles has been fun though sometimes painful (new engine, blown tyres, crashed into)

    I love it to bits, the old S3 (210bhp) i had went a few months before I got the new one; DanS3 on here bought it but since then I have no odea where it is.

    On a change I notice you are a fellow 2003 AS.NET member, I wonder who else there is?

    Im happy with mine so far, however I am stressing about the petrol costs, which i am bound to expect, however, i was speaking to a friend who does the same sort of mileage as me but in a diesel mondeo and he literally gets double the miles than me on the same money....but dont tell the missus ;-)

    Making me feel old now. I've had mine for 4 years and 1 month. Registered Jan 01, purchased Mar 04. That doesn't come close to your record Joe.

    However I have owned my Ibiza for 11 years 1 month? Does that count?

    Ordered mine in March 2001 after writing my ITR off...it arrived May 2001 (Nogaro Blue, 210 AMK)
    Kept it 3 1/2 years, tuned it...quite a bit.
    Only sold it as I had a large Redundancy package heading my way and it seemed rude not to spend it wisely - on a 911.

    Ideally, I would have kept the S3...but had too much cash sitting tied up in it, that was needed to pay for it's replacement.

    Got to love a good old thread revival :)

    I would have owned my current S3 8L for 4 years this october....although my S3 ownership did start in February 2008 but I did have a 'slight' accident with her that deemed it a write off! I have a pretty bad track record with black cars! lol

    14 Months ish on my first 2002 225 S3
    9 years on my second 2003 225 S3 ( Just sold)

    This third 2011 8P S3, just a couple of months so far. Who knows, maybe a high spec, low miles mint RS3 might tempt me once they have depreciated like the TTRS have.
