    Well chaps,

    Thanks to KiteyBoy taking me out for the spin on the weekend I couldn't wait to get my hands on an S3 so I bought one today...

    Bought from an Audi dealer, 51 plate, 53k, full AudiSH, Standard, In silver with silk nappa leathers. Previous owner was a 40 yr old at the same dealer I bought it from. Been serviced there its whole life!

    Finally found one im happy with and know the history and nothing is gonna go drastically wrong like when ive brought private previously :)

    Im picking her up saturday and ill be getting a revo promptly after hehe.

    Pictures to follow!

    you will not be dissapointed with the S3 its certainly a head turner and very good choice on the remap but if I were you drive it standard for a month at least

    They handle great for everyday normal driving, it's when you start to push things to see what it can do, it becomes obvious that it's not as sporty as the 'S3' tag suggests.
