Is 153000 to much on a s3 8l

Quick question for u people ive been to look at s3 today with 153000 on and its up for 3295 and he givin me 700 for my car but im just wondering is this milage to high.its gt full service hiatory. Any help wud be a great help

The mileage wouldn't concern me as long as the general condition of the car was what you are expecting based on the money being spent.

Is it a full VAG service history or a specialist? Have you done a simple HPI check as well?

totally depends on history tbh

as above, we've just passed 40'000 on our S3 8L..... so 153'000 should be fine

As most have said service history is a must but also are there any repair invoices
As an s3 with 153k is high esecially for 3295 seen mint ones go for very similar money

You need to see when cambelt was last done, on original turbo? Clutch also oil pumps like to go on high miler s3's

TBH 153k for that price is a little high unless its been very well looked after its a buyers market nowdays so maybe have a look about try selling your car private and put up a wanted post on the forum a members car is always a better buy then a garage if it is one thats selling that particular car

Goodluck with your search

Good idea, we can appraise it based on the advert for you, a good second opinion would help.

I look after one that now got 208,000 miles on it ..

I needed a set of piston rings and the head rebuilt last year .
The turbo was replaced the year before ..

A good strong little car if looked after ..

Just watch out for boost leaks .

I kno this is ye im dnt thinkbill bother but they aint really worth much more than 4500 although I seen one or two go for 6k

153k on these engine is absolutely fine as long as the service intervals are well kept. The big problem for these is a sludgy oil pick up pipe which can cause catastrophic problems and derives from irregular oil changes.

The interior looks very good for the age from the pictures. Considering it all i would say 3250 is a very good price for that particular car.
