2003 S3 Query - strange rear axl stance??

So I've sold my S4 ( ) and while unable to play with the big boys again for a while, I'm gonna grab an old S3 for the interim.

This one looks good - but is it just me or does the back of the car look a lot lower then the front?!

Very nice spec indeed!!

I would suggest it does look a little lower but not a huge amount.  My old one looked similar.  Maybe something in the boot or the springs might be a little tired.  No deal breaker for that particular car at this money!

I still think unmolested 8L S3's will be worth some money some day.  I think they are too cheap for what they are.

Thanks mate - it is the only thing that's bugging me! Reckon your right, I'll give him another bell and sound him out.

Here's my son in law's one with 55k miles. If you look close, it looks almost identical.

Could be the way it is parked? Looks to be in a hole or on a slope slightly?

Perhaps they aren't original 18" 9 spokes and are aftermarket and the et is different to the factory spec ones?  The centre caps on the wheels certainly look tired.

The climate control buttons look to be faded too.  I'm always a bit suspicious of no drivers footwell/seat bolster area type photo!

And personally.... I don't like the colour one bit.

Don't be vague now, tell the truth!  

Think it's Avus, which is quite rare on a 8L.  Not offensive to me at all.

I think it's a light blue actually.  Could be wrong though.  I have seen this colour on the a3 before. If I were buying again I'd be going for the dolphin grey, best colour these came in
