    Hi guys,

    Names Ben, I'm from Luton in Bedfordshire, I'm looking at buying my first VAG car :w00t: I'm after an S3 8L model, preferably the 225 facelift version.

    If anyone has one for sale around the 8-9g mark let me know!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum!!.

    Check out the autotrader, and http://www.pistonheads.com. Should find a reasonable one for that kind of money.

    Take care on some of the dross that's being sold around Luton/London area. Thrashed, crashed and clocked.

    Take your time, and look at a few (unless you are 1animal1!!) to get an idea of quality and what to look out for. See the sticky threads for the things to check.

    Good luck, and I'm sure you wont be dissapointed with an S3.

    Cheers,
