    After 7 months of happy S3 ownership I have found myself in the fortunate position of getting a promotion at work meaning I can now afford to change the S3 for a car I have wanted for a very long time!!

    So I am saying goodbye to my S3 far far sooner than I hoped. If anyone is interested I have posted it on the classified section http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/sale-audi-cars/121084-2007-audi-s3-sale-low-miles-fantastic-condition.html#post1266258

    I am however sticking with the Audi brand !! What is now my fourth Audi car, I am now the very proud owner of a highly spec'd 2007 meteor grey Audi S5. I've ummed and ahhhed over it for a while now, the main sticking point being the fuel but seeing as I do way less than 8k a year I figure if I dont get one now I never will. Having owned it for a week now I dont regret it one little bit - completely different car to the S3 but absolutely awesome non the less :)

    Thanks all for your S3 advice during my relatively short ownership period.

    Lovely S3 you have up for sale - looks immaculate. I'm sure you'll have no issue selling that. Oh and fantastic choice of car in the S5 (any chance of pics!?)- enjoy! :)

    Thanks man. I love it. Some kind soul spent nearly £7k in extras on it (including the carbon pack :) )

    Thanks mate. Yeah it's the 4.2 V8. I think they put the smaller engine in the sportback? and the 4.2 in the coupe.....not sure why. I toyed around with looking for a 3.0 TDI but it just wouldnt have felt the same car. Its doing about 25MPG if you drive it like an old lady - 18MPG if you drive it "properly"
