Hello, I know nowt about cars but I know what I like...................and I'm liking my 2008 S3. I did have a 2004 Honda Civic Type R until some idiot decided to T-Bone me causing me to eventually crash into a HSBC Bank. Car was a write-off. Was looking at Golf GTi's until I test drove a 2008 S3 in torrential rain and then I couldn't even think about Golfs. Grippy 4WD sold me. I looked at a few S3's but settled on a red 2008 S3 with 10212 miles on the clock. The only thing I didn't get was the personal reg. It got transferred to its original reg mark.
