    Hello,

    I am going to look at a ming blue S3. It's a W reg with 49000 miles. It has the chrome mirrors, silver heated leather, bose speakers, cd autochanger in
    the boot and cruise control.

    It is up for £15,995 at an Audi dealer. I wanted to ask if this is a good price or should I walk away?

    It's a 2000 model so I don't think so. If it isn't
    should I walk away and look for something else?

    I would say it looks like a good price. Cheapest one on autotrader with leather is 15,750 (trade). Obviously you should be able to get at least 500 if not 1000 quid of that.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif We got 500 quid off the list price of our Audi just recently and that was only on at 8500.

    You can do a nationwide search for an S3 on their website... sounds like you're looking at one with 49875 miles at Northampton Audi...
    Anyway, those headlights are one-piece Xenons... and I think someone recently said in the facelift-related post that one-piece lights might mean it's the new shape.. someone else will probably clarify.

    A bit more money and some arguing might get you the Green one with half the mileage, a year newer, from Southend.

    Never buy unless you're damn sure - a lot of people will hold out for the exact model and colour, right leather, etc.

    It is the one at Northampton Audi. I'll go and have
    a look and see if I can get them down in price, which I doubt I will.

    It does have everything I want but I think the mileage is to high for my liking, as a friend of mine has seen a black one, same year but without the chrome mirrors with 27000 miles for the same price.

    Thanks for the advice. Don't really fancy the green one anyway.

    I paid about the same for a Y reg with similar mileage (private). Similar spec but without the ali mirrors (had to buy and fit myself) and heated seats. It has got 18" RSTTs, Sat Nav and a tracker though. It also has a Viper DV and AmD remap.

    STOP!!!!

    The car at Northampton Audi is a pre-facelift model and the picture is not the actual car!

    Facelifted cars are X reg onwards, although there are some early X reg's which are pre-faclifted knocking about, probably left over from old stock.

    If you got all that for the same price I think I should hold back on it.

    Thanks kmpowell. I have just checked it again and you're right. It hasn't even got the mirrors on that car in the picture.
