    I love Merlin Purple. I've seen a b5 s4 in merlin purple...it looked stunning. Shame I don't know how to fix cars otherwise it'd be a good project.

    Can't be many like that !! There is 1 B5 RS4 in that colour as well, a rare sight indeed!!

    Pity the seller didn't say what engine work was needed :(

    ....would those TT sport wheels fit straight onto the S3 hubs ?
    I quite like those on my noggy S3 :)

    ooh, nice, where can i hide that from 'er indoors.

    i do like the lack of punctuation, these sound a like a nice touch "black heated leather parking sensors ".

    I seen this advertised on ebay? Offered the seller £1000 and he accepted my offer. Then i didn't bother going down as i had found another running S3. So bought that instead.

    I know the lad the lad whose bought it and i went to view, its done £170,000 on clock, Headgaskets gone and all the bodywork is very tatty all way round, also armrest and cupholders are broken and looks very tired.

    I don't get how some people can own an expensive car like this and just let everything on it break and fall into disrepair....it's beyond me....

    It's because some people don't realise the running costs of high performance cars. I mean S3s can be had from around £2 for a running one if you look around, it won't be a mint example, but it'll still be a £30k car to run.

    Because they aren't that expensive any more to pick up dude.... BUT the majority of people haven't got a clue on what's required to maintain an S3.

    Potential new owners are scraping together a few bags of cash and not looking at what the parts cost/what interval parts need replacing or refurbishing etc.

    It's sad seeing so many tired examples out there on the market- but should keep the enthusiasts cars (us on here) that are well maintained at a decent value in the long run as I am seeing more and more S3s being broken for parts or just rotting away :(
