    Hello.

    My name is Dan, and have recently purchased a 2002 Negaro Blue S3 through a private sale.
    It has done 98k and had a brand new engine under warranty from Audi at 74k with FSH and last two owners being female. The car was perfect, very well looked after, maintained, its like driving a new car.

    Previously cars I have owned:

    1995 Peugeot 106 Rallye (standard apart from being lowered).

    [​IMG]

    1998 Peugeot 106 GTI (200BHP Individual Throttle Bodied engine).

    [​IMG]

    I decided on getting an S3 as I was fed up with fixing the 106's week in week out for over 5 years. The Rallye was my daily drive, but the GTI was my track car so went through quite a bit of thrashing. I wanted something refined, sporty, and well built so it was time to change.

    I am keen track go'er, and have been to the 'ring a couple of years ago. I look forward to spending some time on the forum. Looks like a place with a wealth of information available at my finger tips.

    that paintwork looks like a gleaming mirror. Hope your not going to spoil it by putting it on the race track regularly....note I said regularly !

    You give Nogaro Blue S3's a good name.

    Wont be tracking this any time soon, possibly just the 'ring. Planning to share a track car with a few friends in the near future.

    They were a lovely couple, was great dealing with them.

    Yippee! Looks like another OCD-er judging by the cleanliness of the S3 and the 106s. Welcome.
