    Am thinking of trying to find a mint, late reg S3. What was the last registration\ year for an 8L S3? It seems to be a 2004, 53 plate. Are there any 04 or 54 platers? If anyone's got a genuine minty McMint Dolphin Grey 04\ 54 plater with sub 40k miles, I may be interested....

    I've currently got an 02 plate Ebony black S3 at the mo and want to get a newer one until the 8P chassis ones come down to sub £20k....(a few years methinks!)

    OK cheers. Know what you mean about cars that are late registered because they were sat on an airfield somewhere, unsold. Can't imagine there were any S3s that sat around as they were the end of the production run.... So I guess the latest will be a 53 plate, unless anyone knows more....?

    Later ones could be eligible for the lovely new tax prices, so check that first before you buy mate!!
    Or you could be paying good-old Mr Brown more than you need to

    I think there was this chap who imported a few on this reg, they are all in Avus Silver with black leather IIRC.
