    Hi Every one, hope your all good.


    Some of you may know i was looking for a new car, decided i wanted a 2.0 tdi (140) had to be s-line couldnt find any which were at a decent price or lowish miles. All were either 2007 with high miles 35,000+ or 2006 with 40,000+ and they wanted £13,995 then found a ibis white one audi were selling Watford audi but decided not to go for that. Anyway after about 4 let downs etc etc. I gave up and thought just wait for a bit and then get one. As i really wanted a 2.0T FSI

    Sunday decided to take hmm the girl friend shall i say car shopping as she seen a nice golf gt she likes. Got there and a nice 2.0 tfsi s-line caught my eye.

    Went back today and picked her up. Audi a3 2.0T FSI S-line (200bhp) Silver (not sure what kinda silver) £12,995 21,450 miles, s-tronic, one owner from new, on a late 2006 plate, still under audi warranty. The new car has my alloys and facelift back lights on. Will post photos when i get home.

    Plans for the car my black optic grill going on tomorrow.
    Remap at some stage but not in any rush as the car can move at the moment and doubt i will get bored any time soon. Photo be uploaded after i finish work. One question who are the top three companys for remaping? Heard good things about revo and amd essex

    :)

    All blocked damn lol. Just do it when im home. 170 are nice but think with the extra few £££ you can do a few mods to the 140. Will get some photos up tonight and tomorrow so dont worry lee you will see the car :)
    Hopefully tomorrow my optic grill should be on. Only thing is that its s3 (i know its abit shorter then the s-line) reckon be any other problems? Have you had a look for that white a3 yet?


    Mac long time no speak. How the s3 going? Thanks, Is a nice motor be a lot better if it had a Milltek stainless steel exhaust system:eyebrows:
    Haha i dont worry i wont be doing any lol. I think if they say any thing while i get this car im gonna just look at them in silence. as i would of just given up on arguing with them :respekt:


    Thanks :)
    There were not many i saw but then once that where your price were 2007 and 57 black with 28,000 miles.
    Lol nigel we spoke about this before. You already know i think you should get one...So do it lol:) Been quite good to see what you have planned for a s3?! Agree with the 'one good thing about the economy for buyers, but **** for everything else.' lol

    Nilzt thanks for the comment mate :) Some photos be up now from yesterday. Just waiting to get my facelift backlights on in a bit and my grill.
    Yes should be better luck lol this year been good so far hope to keep it that way:respekt:


    Whats not a s-line lee? Black would be nice if i could of find a nice 2.0 tfsi in black would of had it :) ever thought about tfsi or insurance too much?
    Yeah and your part ex is like £3,000-£4,000 right? So take a bit down and if you just put a deposit of £500 down thats if you have to. I never put a deposit down me. Any luck in the car hunt? Any news from leeds audi?

    Ashley

    EDIT: Is my car akoya silver or just metallic silver? I'd say akoya silver? Or am i wrong...

    Is it me or does this S-line look like the wheel arches are different compared to the standard sport model ? I know the back and front bumper is different. But is the any other changes on the S-line Body ? Can Any one answer this? :unsure:
