    Oh dear.... why the hell advertise it as an S3 even if you occasionally mention its a conversion... not immediately obvious to any unsuspecting punter and no actual explicit mention that its an A3....

    Is there no 'Report this Ad' link??

    I dont think AT take any responsibility for anything and I know having been at the sticky end of a car advertised on AT.

    besides the obvious 'prick factor' surely he is shooting himself in the foot? since if someone searches for S3's and finds that they will just look on.
    But if someone is looking for a 1.8TQ maybe with S3 kit they might not find that car in a search?

    plus it sits wayyyyyy to high to look good

    So its actually just a V reg A3 in the most rubbish colour with an S3 bumper nailed on then.

    Nice......

    I wonder if he'll re-write the ad when he sobers up.

    Deluded deperado!

    S3 power; no receipts, but goes like it in 3rd and 4th.....

    A cheap backstreet remap doesn't make a 1.8T an S3.

    Electric Recaro's? no

    Stunning S3 bodykit with flared arches? no

    P-o-S? Yes

    Fail.
