    I have been mulling over getting a new S3, and I was wondering if anyone who has just bought/ordered one would mind telling how much discount they got?

    Whatcar? magazines target price is a drop of about 4% which doesn't seem a lot when every penny counts and a S-Line 2.0T is about 8% (if my sums are correct).

    Any how, thanks in advance.

    Well some have reported 10% or even 13% on a new car, you need to shop around dealers & pit them against eachother being careful not to go to same group with number of dealerships, but should easily get more than 4%, do a forum search as this has been discussed before so plenty of info.

    I got 15% when I ordered in Nov 07. I guess the discounts dropped with the facelift but it's been out a while now so they should be up to that sort of level again.

    Don't forget to play all the dealers off against each other :icon_thumright:

    Same here, 10% off mine, ordered about 3 weeks ago!! I took in online broker prices as well as others I'd had from other dealers and they were 'persuaded' to lower their price! To be honest, they offered 8% without me even asking!

    Good luck! :s3addict:

    11% without too much effort.

    Where are you based as I have a contact in the midlands ?

    Whilst a discount is important on this superb car I would suggest you first ensure you spend any potential discount on a means of ensuring your pride and joy is garaged, or at least parked completely out of sight from the road. Alternatively, invest in a shotgun and a good lawyer.

    I ordered mine a couple of days ago from a main dealer, the car was specc'd to just under £33000 (based on the Audi website) and I was given a cost to change of £18500 using my 07 Ford Focus ST3 (with 16000 miles on it) as p/x so he either gave an absolutely fantastic price for my car or a very good discount (or a combination of both!).

    3Dr or SB? Personally I'm not keen on the bucket seats as I sit too low in the seat. Call me a short @rse if you want!! : )

    I went for cruise, open sky, magnetic ride and s-tronic. Pity the S3 doesn't come in the 7-Speed s-tronic however.

    kkp0897, what was your experience buying your car through a broker? where did you pick it up from etc.

    Anyone else used the figures quoted from these brokers to get the dealers down on their prices
