Thinking of s3....
Maybe a cab........ Any known /common faults to look out for 2013+
Erm, I thought you asked the same question ~3 days ago?
Make sure the windows/roof works !!!
Not many cabs for sale though
I had one as a courtesy car a couple of years back for two weeks...Great fun even when cloudy. lol
As to what to look for...... The usual things like good service history etc.and as above make sure the mechanism works as should, switches and seals.
Im going take a good couple of months before i buy one, i usually buy private but i don't rush at all, when i come across a good one, I'll buy it.
I saw one on auto trader for £16995 low mileage 39k.....but owners put me well off it........ 8 previous!!!
Lol..I think it's the link I put in my post...Failed to see how many owners...Looks ok though but like you said toooooooo many owners ha ha
The S3 Cabriolet just oozes Class....Simples.....rare though
Only just over 50 on the Trader at the moment...Including the one I linked above which has had a bus load of owners.
Just a small note and to be honest not that noticeable the S3 cabriolet is heavier than the S3 saloon which it's based on.
2075Kg for the cab and 2020Kg for the saloon. This is due to the additional beams for strengthening the body.
The S3 Saloon/cabriolet dont weigh anywhere near 2 metric tonnes mate more like 1470kg
An RSQ8 Is more 2 metric tonnes lol

Lol I think I might have got my units mixed up or something? (brain fart)
Yeah 1470Kg for saloon and 1635Kg for the convertible.
Still quite a difference in weight.
Like you said a classy looking car. my son Sam loved being in the back with the roof down shifting along in November ha ha
I had it for a few weeks whilst warranty work was being carried out on my old A3 before my S3.
I've had one for nearly 3 years now. Haven't had any specific cabriolet issues.
I'm the second owner, got it on 9k miles now on 32k. It's a great car.
Done a few subtle mods, more useful stuff than performance related.
Have you lowered yours? I’ve got an S3 cab and have been thinking about lowering it for a while now. But there doesn’t seam to be any springs specifically for the cab and I would have thought they are carrying a bit more weight than the saloon.
Sorry no, not lowered
