    hi guys new to the world of s3 so looking for some help really!Had s2 for last few years lovely car but just to many niggly faults so now sold that and after a s3.Not to sure what to look for however i have found a imola yellow s3 which i have fallen for!Its the facelift model 2001,with black leather interior.Only downside is mileage @94000, the seller is asking £7000 would this be about right or to much due to mileage/colour which is bound to knock its resale value?any ideas or help would be great!

    i thought it was quite reasonable but its just the mileage side as its so close to 100k mark but what are s3's like as far as reliabilty?it does look like a genuine car and looks as new!i have looked on pistonheads/autotrader/ebay and once they get above 100k they dont seem to make anymore than 7k though?
    many thanks

    94k miles aside, check the service history and see if the camblet has been changed, that will cost you around £350 from an independant specialist(ignore service schedule, we recommend every 60k miles or 5 years, whichever comes first). Haldex oil need changing every 20k miles and haldex filter every 40k miles, brake fluid every 2 years or 24k miles(whichever comes first). Price wise, sounds about right.
