Hi all, Haven't posted here in a while, family commitments have given me nearly no time for fun with the S3 at all Anyway, it's looking like time to invest in a sensible car now for the same reasons, so am debating the pros and cons of selling the S3 privately or trade. The best quote I've had so far from Audi is £13,700 - not great as I paid £16,500 for the car 8 months ago from an Audi main dealer as an Approved Used vehicle and it's mint - but I guess they have to make whatever profit margin they work at when they buy in stock. Specs wise, it's a lovely car - metallic black, August 2003, factory spec included RS18 alloys, 6 disc head unit, black leather, xenons, all the usual late equipment. Mileage as of today is 39,077, and it has 5 months of Audi warranty still remaining Have also had the AMD stage 1 remap, but paid extra to have it done as a One Click, so comes with the programming dongle. As tested by themselves on the day, it's running at 261 BHP with the map on, and was a healthy 224 BHP previously Condiiton wise, it's lovely - not even scuffs on any of the alloys, that kind of thing. Just had its 40,000 mile service and has been kept garaged from the day I had it. I'm very picky with my cars, they have things like new oil, fluids, wiper blades etc every six months, even if the milles I've done mean it's not necessary. I swear this car drives better than when I bought it, even with the map turned off - I wonder if there's any truth in that intelligent learning ECU stuff I remember reading about here a few months ago Could any fellow S3 experts give me a rough idea as to what I should ask for it if I sell privately? Audi's offer just isn't enough really... Thanks in advance! Will.
