    Picked this up on Saturday, 99' S3 in Imola Yellow.

    So far I am very pleased with it, decent performance and extremely comfy.

    Mileage is approaching 100k, but I don't think it shows it at all.

    No plans for it really as it already has a Milltek exhaust and a re-map, but its booked in for a cambelt and service next weekend.

    :D

    Looks nice, not sure about the yellow. The purple in the A3 was always my favourite.

    Not a big fan of the colour, but hope you enjoy it. Should go well with a remap.

    Are the mirrors real ally ones?

    Thats a damn fine price for an S3! I remember looking at these before I got my 330 and didnt go along with the idea because they were all to much £££.

    Those Recaros are epic, looks like they're heated too?
    Good spec and a good price to match!

    Enjoy it :)

    Yeah they are heated, which I believe fairly rare.

    How much I will actually use them is questionable but its a nice touch.

    That doesn't look like a car made in 99. Very nice.

    I am thinking about getting an S3 *** plate as on a T plate it does show its age.

    I saw a S3 *** yesterday, he revv'ed me at the lights and zoomed off in his 2.0 TDI derv A3 with a big exhaust, tinted windows, and big alloys :rolleyes:
