    Is this for the 8P S3 or 8L as that seems really cheap for a stolen recovered. Was there any damaged? I saw a beautiful Red 57plate Audi S3 Stolen recovered that was still up for £17 k or best offer.

    = £9,000,000
    If you can afford that, £4000 on insurance should be a snip ;)

    But its not a company car -in the event of a crash, they're not going to pay out and you can kiss that 9k and your licence good bye...

    If they ask for trading invoices, company VAt number, - what are you going to do?

    And surely going from a 1.6 to a S3 - the chances of you having a bump are quite high.

    Good luck on finding one for 9k, let us know when you do!

    One sold on ebay for 12k and that was virtually destroyed from the windscreen forward! Cat C.

    I reckon a S/R (with keys) and found abandoned with minor damage would still fetch 14-15K

    Stolen recovered will be cheaper to buy (still in and around £16/17k) but will be the same to insure, tax, maintain, fuel and if you are finding it hard to insure a 1.6, a group 18 car will be terrible for you.

    Put that ontop of maintenance costs, fuel, tax etc.... not a wise move IMO unless you are getting an awesome monthly salary :(

    The cheapest S3 I found when searching was £16,995 and it was orange with the complete works - unfortunately CAT C!

    Interesting it's worth so much. Makes me laugh really, our local Audi main dealer offered me a part exchange for my S3 against a new '57 plate S5.

    Lets just say our S3 was pretty much valued by the dealer in January '09 (who sold it to us and services it on the nail) a tad above a Cat C write off!!! Of course I feel like a 'valued Audi customer'!

    Oh yeah and a couple of days later (and a quick wash by a 16 year old apprentice) it will be a quality Audi approved used car with 22995 in the window :banghead:
