[ QUOTE ] Guys I think I may have found THE car. I need your advice please... Spec is as follows: 52 Mettalic Nagaro (I didnt know they came in Mettalic - thought they were all pearl???) 22,000 Mile Leccy roof :-DDD Alcantara (heated) :-DDD Sat Nav Plus (is this the TV version???) Parking sensors (for the missuz!!) No allu mirrors :-(( (but can be added after) Bose FASH Going for £17k Worth it??? [/ QUOTE ] Just looking at the spec, it seems nice. The SatNav plus is the one with the TV - very rare and looks /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif. Mine's a September 2002 car with the same mileage - you need to ask when the Haldex oil, brake fluid and 2nd AVS service need to be done (or were done), as mine is due these soon. Heated seats aren't such a big deal with the alcantara as it doesn't get as cold as the leather. Imo, it's lacking the two main features that really make the S3 - alu wing mirrors, and the 18" RS4 style alloys. If you go for replicas, both these will set you back a further £1k.
