    I can completely agree with your points if it is a case of them probably not really able to afford the payments and insurance, which is usually the case as on some part time job or something, if that is the case then I wholeheartedly agree. However there are plenty (I'll include myself as I'm in the age group you refer to) who have a decent paying job and as such treated myself to a newer car, yes I could have gone much cheaper route but that isn't what I wanted to do.

    I had a 6 year old mk3 escort in 1988 when I was 19 or 20, a 5 year old ford fiesta xr2 for a week when I was 21 in 1989, 4 year old golf gti 8v mk2 when I was 21 in 1989 which I kept for years. Never bought new even though I was on 3 x the national wage and lived at home. Quite a few of my colleagues had nicer cars like my few computer operator shift leader had a new Sierra cossie.

    Don't worry it does not come standard.....its part of a pack that costs £2,295
    Age shouldn't come in to it though because I bought a new Civic FK8 at 50 years old, and rear wings don't get much bigger than that. :D

    lol, my s3 was about £41.5K in 2014. I have zero will power when it comes to options, just dont ask how much the Rs3 was (All i can say is the current heavily discounted overrated BMW M3/M4 are cheaper)

    Zero will power coupled with deep pockets. :D
    Seriously though I wouldn't even have believed that possible for an S3 Sportback in 2014. :openmouth:

    The saloon wasn't that much. More like £34k. I paid £34,051 for my Saloon with lots of options on it. Think it worked out that I basically got all my options for free.

    Yeh, gaz on here was in the same showroom and spending even more. Obviously we got decent discounts too, which was a bit harder then as a new version.

    Fair enough mate, they are nice looking motors. Mate at work is toying trading in his S1 for a TTS.

    Well, only driven 30 miles so far but the ST is fantastic. So great to drive. Recaro seats are awesome.

    Car has not been waxed yet. That's tomorrow's job.

    I'll upload pics when I make them smaller.

    Good move @jassyo06, I always said on here that I preferred the TT ultra over my S3, Great car to drive and lovely interior in all specs.

    Will you be providing hair cuts afterwards?

    I do like the TT interiors. Think they are the best interior of any main stream car going. Take it you don't need the extra space of the S3 anymore?

    I never really like Red cars (Apart from Ferrari's) before, until I got my Twingo RS. Renault's Red is a really nice Red.

    Now it's a colour I look for in a car. Have seen only one ST in Red, and it look great. I hope Ford have changed how they do Red, as years ago, the colour would go off and turn Pink pretty quickly.

    Didn’t you say you weren’t getting another Audi when you got rid of the S3?

    Audi service costs would be funny if money wasn't involved.
    Just about to buy a service plan from Ford for the Fiesta ST which is fixed 12k miles or 12 months between services. £400 total, not much different to what Audi want for 1 service!

    Is that for 3 years? Or 5? The service plan for my X3 M40i was £399, but I ended up cancelling it after discovering 1st service due in 18k miles or two years, so would only get benefit of 1 service over the 3 years as do about 8k p/a, but would be worth it for higher milers

    Looks nice. Is that an ST1 then? Wheels look like the standard smaller fit of the ST1?

    Did you not go for the Performance pack?
