    Looks like a good clean car and a fairly decent and honest advert, better than some of the muppets on here could manage. Whats the problem?

    not being funny here, but it is permanent awd, it may not be 50/50 at all times, but there's always power going to the back!

    and an s3 will do 300,000, a friend of mine in poland has a mk1 tt with 570,000 km on it!

    I just struggle to believe it's 280bhp when he doesn't state any mods other than the remap.

    Erm ... No. The rear diff is a wet clutch system. The prop might always be turning.... but there is never always drive through the rear diff.

    On 05-Aug-11 at 17:43:25 BST, seller added the following information:Just gone through all the paperwork today and discovered a few things......the car is not running at 280bhp but is running at 340bhp with 440 pounds of torque. I have the paperwork to prove this.




    f*** right off. 440 my arse.

    I had a track day/experience at Knockhill in my own car (old S3, 03 model) and did 162mph with 2 people up, 165mph isn't totally impossible imo.

    Edit: In case any smartypants think I'm actually an idiot ragging along the motorway pretending I was on private ground here's a wee picture, the car was serviced before and immediately after as well to take car of it

    Ess Three said it is impossible,something to do with the aerodynamics also bearing in mind the speedo is not accurate

    Probably right, isn't top speed more about aerodynamics and/or you need an awful lot of power to counter the aerodynamics to gain even small increments in top speed....something like that anyway.

    The gearbox is capable of 182 mph if it had the power behind it...

    I race road bikes, at about 30mph 80% of your energy is being used just to push the air out of the way, so I would agree that the S3 shape would be a major limiting factor to top speed although I'm not doubting anyone.

    Interestingly though when I asked him for the spec on ebay I also asked i the con-rods had been changed and what make of remap he had, neither of which he's answered, does seem to have done a lot to it in fairness.

    "Very fast car 0-60mph 5secs, Top speed over 165mph,Been very well looked after" thrashed to ****e i'd say.
    "140,000 miles, ( motorway miles )".seeing as he live in cornwall and the closest motoway is 85 miles away i find that hard to believe to.....

    Fail, that 80% is more like 60% for a 90KG rider of roughly 6 foot and closer to 50 for a <70Kg rider of between 5 foot 10 and 6 foot (your typical racer). Thats without getting into aerodynamics of frames, shoe covers and compression suits, a Specialized Shiv for instance will reduce that drag even further through reverse aerofoil head tube cowlings and fork legs.

    Sorry to be pedantic, but stuff like that annoys me.

    Alright Jase! I read it as "at about 30mph 80%" not "at 30mph about 80%"

    the rear diff is not a wet clutch system - the haldex is - there is always some power going to the rear of the car - ask haldex yourself!

    On a flat road, aerodynamic drag is by far the greatest barrier to a cyclist's speed, accounting for 70 to 90 percent of the resistance felt when pedaling.

    You cant compare the energy of a cyclist to thatt of a 340hp car lol. For a cyclist yes, it may be 80% of his/hers total energy, but not of the cars total energy. Un/ess you have GIGANTIC legs?!
    The drag cowfficient of the 8l shape isnt that bad either. try telling the likes of welly and tuffty that they cant acheive such speeds....

    The theory is correct for any powered vehicle be it a skateboard, bicycle or car.

    Read this, it's a bit heavy but interesting. Getting a car to a certain speed is as mentioned above only limited by the gearbox assuming power is unlimited, however getting enough power in an A3 to over it's dynamics whilst not impossible would be a challenge to say the least!

    Sounds to me like he's brought the car with the work already done. It's the only reason i can think of why 1; he wouldn't know what map the cars had etc. The fact that he seems to have just 'found paper work proving it's running 340hp' that he's not bothered to look at untill now beggers belief and 2; why he's put 3 pictures of a butchered parcel shelf in the ad instead of more photo's of the bodywork/engine.

    I find in general when people on ebay don't really know what there selling it means one of two things. Someone might get a major bargain or an absolute lemon. Lets hope someone gets a bargain!
