    Yep, Y reg is March 2001 onwards but this is a pre-facelift so you'd expect it to be a W or possibly an X.

    I spent 15 mins looking at the photos - to realise I don't care that much.

    It's a common mistake to think the reg date is the model year, there's plenty of cars out there that were registard late for some reason or another so it's quite possable the car your looking @ is infact a pre facelift that wasn't registard until 2001 on a Y plate. I seen a dealer stung with this by buying in a 2003 A4 that he asumed was a B6 chassis but turned out to be one of the last B5 chassis cars that finished in 2001 and for reasons unknown wasn't registard until 2 years later.

    wrong wheels as has been said. those are fitted to the 1.8 Sports, not the turbos. Also it's been kept somewhere for AGES before being registered, hence being a Y plate on a pre facelift, plus it's around 1000 overpriced as well!"

    Avoid.

    According to my car checker app that car isn't a turbo and just an A3 1.8, that would explain the lack of turbo wheels anyway. Steer clear of it I would say.

    I've got the same wheels on my 1.6 Sport, highly doubt that is a 1.8T, avoid.
