    how many miles per year do you do?

    why not to a calculation projecting the next 2 years moving forwards...

    if you put a gun to my head i'd say no

    I think I probably would. I had a TDI 140, which was a good car but I changed it for a 3.2 and I love it.
    The S3 is a bit more focused but, it's down to taste. It's a nice looking car that you can play with.
    The TDI is a nice car to live with and it can be made to look and go better.
    Nice problem to have...!

    Ive just gone the other way, depends if you can justify 25mpg over 45+, higher insurance premium and tax, (£30 vs £265 for me)...

    Lots of thing to make your decision. I'll highlight a couple
    - what is your gut feeling?
    - are you entirely happy with your current car (has it been letting you down, or is it solid as a rock?) versus the S3 - do you know enough about it, even if it is just from a test drive, to 'sell' its realibility. Better the devil you know, or worthy enough to take the plunge?

    Do it, have fun in the S3, then once you're used to it, map it and have even more fun.

    OP says 'facelifted' so i assume previous owner has done it?

    I was going to say 57 can be factory facelifted so be aware that something fishy could be done to the car
