I have bored a lot of my friends with how much I love my car and just thought I'd let you all know (and anybody who is looking to buy one of these that may see this) Just how superb the Audi S3 is. Obviously this is subjective and my interests in buying a car were it had to be fast (always, past cars include classic 911, CTR, MR2, MR2 Turbo, CRX) but I also wanted luxury this time. The 2 together usually means a very high price tag, not so with the S3. I have only had the car 7 months but still smile as I am walking up to it, the smile then becomes an insane grin when I get behind the wheel. I have taken the car to the ring and round Brands (where I showed a Porsche 911 owner and a TVR owner just what an S3 is capable of!). This car is just what I need, I know people may say well the S3 is a little old now, I would suggest to them that there are many old cars that are great, so if it is an age thing on its own and you have to have a new car just because its new. Then go and buy your new car, I personally can't see any advantage, as long as the used car you buy has been lovingly cared for you stand a better chance on the reliability front with a used than an unknown quantity. If it is an image thing you know "oh he has the new M6, wow he must be loaded/successful/indebt" then I can't really comment I am sure if I had limitless funds I'd be a new Ferrari every 6 months but I am not. Well I've said my piece, I /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif MY YELLOW S3, lets see how long I keep it, my current record for keeping a car is 3 years (and I was abroad for 6 months of that). I hope I haven't upset anyone, it's just my opinion.
