    hello all

    not posted in a while!

    just a bit of bad news that i may be selling up soon as im going to be commuting and going to have to buy a diesel as it would be the more sensible thing to do! its not a defo decision thats been made just yet but may be..just wanted to say thanks for everyones help on the forum for any issues or questions i have had. been a lot of help! i will post my car up for sale on the forum first when i do put it up for sale probally at the end of the month to give forum members a chance of owning my beauty rather then any random person..


    been nice knowing u all!

    :)

    I went from a round trip of 6 miles a day to 100 a day. I couldn't bare to sell the S3 so swapped cars with my girlfriend. I now drive a 1.2 corsa while she is doing 30 miles a day in my 305bhp S3 and I only get to drive it at weekends :(

    il be doing about 80 miles a day ..and i know the s3 isnt too bad on the motorway but a diesel would just last bit longer being motorway miles. i love my s3 to bits iv spent a lot of money and effort making it look the way it does now gets nothing but compliments wherever it goes being as theres like 4 5 s3s i have seen in leicester but iv still not seen a red one like mine! il be putting it up for sale very soon once this weather is out the way..

    I worked out that my daily fuel bill with the S3 was around £23 for 100 miles an that was driving sensibly.

    Quite good!

    It's £460ish a month and that's just work miles! You could easily hit £550 a month if you drove like a loon and did a lot of personal miles too :faint:

    I have a mortgage and there's no way I could run mine for work and still afford to live ;)

    You want to run mine as a every day car

    A full tank lasts me 150 miles round town with putting me foot down every now and then

    Yeah but you would never dream of doing 100 miles a day in it.

    Full s3- that does look Like a nice example of an s3 but I think you might struggle to sell at that price though....

    m12rjx - glad your keeping it,its hard to drive sensible when tou have a fun car. Plus if you did sell it you wouldn't get your money back from all the nods anyway so you might as well keep it

    I do about 30 miles a day but tbh I need another smaller car. I can't keep clocking the mileage on the s3 so I'm getting my fiesta back on the road. I can abuse the fiesta more :D
