    Interesting thread.

    Ive been looking at something to drive until the new S4 is released, therefore Ive been looking at S3 prices.

    Brand new 10% is easy to achieve and if you are looking at the old shape 15% is easy as there is extra support from Audi on them.

    Al´s car is overpriced IMHO. Yes it has buckets, but that limits the market a little, it has high miles and is missing items someone like myself like - GSM for example.

    You can get an 08 car for 21-22k from an Audi dealer with much lower milage. In fact you can see a nicely loaded car for 24k. Not that difficult to knock the dealer down on these cars for a quick sale - 22.5k for example. I know I would rather the 08 car with Sat Nav, GSM etc.

    Not knocking Al´s car, but I would say that 20k is more of where its at and that is set to fall quickly.

    TBH Johnathan does have some good points, as much as you want 21-22, markets dont seem to warrant this, but someone will want the car anyway so its just a case of how long you're prepared to wait which is my whole point overall considering its for a new business or wants to cut the living costs as previously mentioned

    But TBH they are all over priced form the get, no S3 is worth 30k new, its a joke what they are charging us these days really is, but as with everything if you want it then you have to pay it huh.

    If hasnt got sunroof I wont buy it, thats my big one.

    Ha! I wish...

    I bet if they offered anywhere near 15% (which would be a loss) it would've been a stock car that had been sitting in there compound for 6 months. Was flat black, had a Concert radio and no other options etc...

    New car sales may be down, but Audi Car sales were up around 16% verses last September. So things aren't that bad. The only Audi Centres who are probably struggling are the ones who don't know how to run a business.

    I think the issue here is that 15% is possible on the old shape S3 and Audi UK is giving extra discount/support on these run out cars. There are very few new shape 3 doors in country, but a number of old shape and dealers are keen to clear the decks

    Well all I can say there are great deals out there on motors Golf R32 selling at 25% off brand new stocked cars been offered a fully loaded one with buckets & Dvd with DSG for £22k has £7k worth of extras it really is a buyers market at the moment making it a hard to decide between a S3 with 11% off or the R32 I know the S3 is better but that price of the Golf is so tempting & have money in my pocket !

    You can say that again.

    I saw a used MkV R32 going for 17K the other day. Only last summer the MkIV was still fetching 17K5! I know as I was trying to convince my mate to get one (He got a Vectra VXR instead and lost 5K in 3 months).

    How often is it the case where sports cars are cheap at the same time as fuel?! 89.9p I saw today!

    Golf R32s have been becoming more and more bargainous over the last few weeks - 29% off list on one (unreg) mentioned by someone on mkivs

    If I was in the market to buy a car then I would be sorely tempted to get one.

    Wait a few more days you may find you will save even more money if the reduced VAT from 17.5 to 15 as rumoured this weekend happens (-:

    I noticed in the dealers theyre slapping "Dealer contribution" signs in the window. These were ranging from £1000 to £4000 depending on model.

    I also noticed there wasnt one in the TT-S.

    The car market is absolutely shafted right now. I wouldn't be surprised if dealers are being allowed to lose money on the cars just to shift them.

    Rather get rid of stock at a loss than have it sitting around losing money.... That's the fact of it.

    I currently have a 07 Type-R that I rather cleverly picked up on lease. Handing it back in a few months, balloon payment is like £2-3k above the cars current market price... so I'll be handing it back and walking away thank you very much.

    Very interested in a new S3, I'll be looking at £24k at a minimum before I even consider it personally, will be nice to get the dealers to squirm.

    I tried hard but couldn't get an offer of more than a 10% discount on a new S3 Sportback as a factory-order car.

    I got 11% off a new shape S3 & had to push hard for it.....you have to remember you are buying cars that aren't even built so never going to get as much as a stocked car that they will want to shift basically RRP was £29700 with the VAT 2.5 cheaper & discount car came to £25941 thought was pretty good for Audi back in the good days you wouldn't of hardly got anything off a S3 all relative though as the 2nd hand market for S3's have also dropped on the back of it but I keep my cars for at least 5 years so doesnt really bother me on that front.

    You will get a standard S3 new for £24K but not with any options & would have to have solid colour but you would get one

    11%! Result.
    Right time, right place and capitalising on the the current climate and VAT rules, well done.:icon_thumright:

    I paid 25K for a 4 month old car in March (non facelift obviously), which I calculated as being 30-31K when new, taking into consideration the extras it had.

    Applying your discounts I could have had the car, brand new, for 27K.

    Which, when all said and done, was is academic really as 23K was the budget at the time , and 25K was more than I wanted to spend anyway so 27K was never happening.

    Enjoy, and make sure you have some REVO tokens put aside.....:)

    Cheers
