I can't afford either really, but with prices now looking attainable

I was thinking of getting rid of the cheap runaround and buying either

an S3 or TT. Price range is around 13k which is definately the lower

end of the bracket for these cars, but it's just sooo tempting!!

anyone any opinions, preference over the two, or ideas about a complete

alternative?!!

Nice friday afternoon ponderer. [:)]

Would be surprised at seeing a TT 225 for 13k tbh unless it is an early left hooker. Therefore S3! TT's are hairdressers car IMO!

There does seem to be a few RHD TT 225's around on autotrader.

Am a bit suspect about them though.

Agree about the image of the TT though, but I'd like a 2 seater at

some point in my life, and with all the miles I do an elise is out of

the question and the style of the TT is nice...

S3's seem to be roughly the same price and condition as the TT's

although there are more 'flavours' of the TT

Think I would stretch the budget if a nice one of either came up!

S3 too. Such a shame that the TT has become too popular and all the wrong people have them, it's a fantastic design shape just outside every hairdressers [:(]

Has to be a S3 you see so many TT's about it stupied. Your really going to be really hard pushed to get a good S3 or TT for 13k though aren't you? (or even a not so good one come to that, correct me if I'm wrong though)

You need at least 14.5k to get a decent facelift model S3 with nice mileage.

Fantastic cars but must be chipped to release full potential.

could be just a little bit prejudices here being a ttr owner for the last 3 years and still loving every second of it and as for being a hairdressers car with 19in wheels uprated brakes suspension and about 280bhp there arnt many r32 can keep with it

so i guess you know were my vote is going [:)]
