    Ended up being a total lemon, had a front end hit, rear end hit, and a badly sprayed passenger wing, why cant people just be honest!

    Anyway, im starting to give up hope to be honest of getting a clean S3, and had another go in a R32, and to be honest, i prefer it, its just smoother, and a better drive with a different kind of power! Heres the deal, please let me know what you guys think

    "53" Plate, in satin silver, 5 door
    Full black heated konig seats
    37,000 miles on the clock, just had full VW service 1 week ago, inc brake fluid
    Winter pack, xenons etc..

    The car is totally spotless, and the best i could get him down to was 13.5k, what you guys think? Im unable to find a similar mileage example, with 5 doors, and full leather, please do let me know what you think

    Thanks

    I thought you had bought it having read the title.

    Go for a R32 if you have had a few S3's. I quite fancy an R32 myself next as I need the extra 2 doors.

    Well sorry to hear!

    If its the car you want, then do it! Remember an R32 is a nice car too, always fancied one of those too!!

    Nice car Mike why did you get rid?

    Pity you didn't just switch the headlights lights on for only part of the exposure. I think you will have to get another R32 and re-take that picture.

    :lmfao:

    I wish. I sold it to get something a bit cheaper to buy and run, hence the 99' S3, but 4 months on, it turns out I'm still spunking a fortune on petrol, so I need a deeesoil now. :( depressive. Hopefully I'll find a better job, and be able to afford a decent petrol motor and a gaff. :icon_thumright:

    I thought the photo would be ok...they were side lights I left on I think if I remember right as I took one with the xenons on and it looked like JEsus was looking down on me.
