Hi everyone. I have literally just joined the forum and am hoping that someone might be able to help me to with buying a S3.
I am going to see and potentially buy a red 51 plate facelift S3, 76000 miles, Bose sound system. Cam belt and pump done at 70k. It has had 7 owners.
What I am not sure about is that it has an after market head unit cd player. Everything else is meant to be the original Bose set up. The current owner tells me he put in the new unit as the originals display had stopped working (although it still worked, you just can't see the tracks/radio station etc). Apparently this is a common problem and the display can be fixed/replaced on the original (owner still has original?
Looking at a photo of the after market unit it looks pretty good but it looks like the AC controls etc have been moved higher and a panel put in underneath. Firstly is this a problem to put back and fix the original, secondly do you think this is a problem in general (and will it sound as good as the original)?
Finally are there any things with this model S3 that I should really be looking at for faults/issues?
Any advice you can give me would be appreciated.
