    I'm not sure why everyone is concentrating on the word FAIL, in Nathans case, his fave word of choice is normally "coilover". This whole thread does not even mention them so I'll ask......which is best, springs or coilovers???!:)

    Tried?? Explain tried for me..

    The reason you apologized was because you realized that offending people you don't know, have never spoke to and, despite what you say, made no effort to make contact with isn't generally accepted as normal adult behavior. And hence some other members on here showed there dislike to it..

    Is it me or does anyone else think S3's are holding their value well considering the climate. I had a quick look on the Audi Used Car locator last night and was quite surprised.

    It's a similar spec to mine and I thought these would be sub £20k by now.

    Yeah I agree. Although I'm not planning to sell it I don't like to see how much equity I have in it and they're consistently hovering above 20k!

    I just sold my 2007 S3 with 18k on the clock. I was going to put it on Pistonheads for around 21k and haggle down to sub 20k. I went into my Audi dealership (nothing to do with a sale) and got chatting. They offered me 19k as a straight buy i.e. no part chop or purchase from them. I was up front and told them the annual service was due (and was booked in), all 4 tyres were down to their last 2mm (max) and one wheel was curbed, all of which I was going to get sorted before I put it up for sale. They said they'd take it as it was for the 19k. I took the deal and thought it was a pretty good price especially considering I would have to have laid out a grand or so just to sell it only to get tyre kickers round making silly offers. Talking to the salesman sales of new S3's have slowed down a little in the current climate but good low milage second hand S3's still sell well.

    I agree, the event itself was unfortunate. The comments from some of the people on here were fine examples of sheer stupidity.

    Perhaps you and Mitch need to discuss it privately in a PM.

    This thread has gone well off the original topic with no signs of it going back anyway so I'm going to close it.
