    I saw this, I thought it was a REALLY nice looking car!

    Well finished, and not a bad price for a GOOD facelift TDi.

    I was going to look at a TDI with an S3 front end.

    Turns out it was cat D, and the seller supposedly hadn't been told by the dealer he got it from!

    Me, I've done it probably 20 times without problems.

    -

    The way you guys rip apart anything that comes up on Ebay is hilarious, for all you know this car could be mint. It certainly looks better than a lot of your cars from the photo's!

    Chill out guys, are any of you going to buy it? Have any of you seen it? Have any of you met the seller? So why do you need to comment...

    How do you know it's an S3 body though? How do you know that the previous owner didn't do it all properly?

    Not being funny, but somebody posts a picture of a disgusting 8P conversion that's been done well but still looks **** and everybody says it's amazing workmanship and looks good. Then this comes up on ebay, which may well be one of the best S3 reps I've personally seen...and everybody says it's dodgy?

    I've got S3 bumpers, and my car isn't dodgy/a write off?!

    Not sure why your aiming that at me?
    But it's ok I've got broad shoulders dude

    Mate I never said I did or didnt like the 8p conversion, just said it wasn't for me!

    And I never said this car was dodgy I just said " it has an s3 body with a diesel engine ?"

    Note the question marks dude
    Clearly it's not an s3 no mention of 4x4 !
    And it just all looks a bit wrong
    I'm sure it's the nuts of a replica you should buy it

    Ever thought Audi was missing a trick here? Maybe it's against their S model ethos, but an S3-D or an S4-D with the wide body and quattro would sell bucket loads! But I guess an S-Line is near enough the same thing these days.

    Vehicle enquiry



    The enquiry is complete.The vehicle details for AE02 AAN are:
    Date of Liability 01 05 2012
    Date of First Registration 01 03 2002
    Year of Manufacture 2002
    Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1896cc
    CO2 Emissions 138g/Km
    Fuel Type HEAVY OIL
    Export Marker N
    Vehicle Status Licence Not Due
    Vehicle Colour BLUE
    Vehicle Type Approval M1



    Vehicle Excise Duty rate for vehicle
    6 Months Rate £63.25
    12 Months Rate £115.00



    Please be aware that if the vehicle has recently been relicensed or a SORN declared, these details may not yet be updated on the vehicle record.
    If you think that the details on the vehicle record are incorrect please write to:VCSDVLASwanseaSA99 1BAPlease include the incorrect V5C Registration Certificate for amendment.
    Had a play on the tax disc enquiry database and it comes back as a 1.9tdi, so may turn out to be a top notch conversion.

    That's not to say it hasn't been ringed though and i always think that no V5 seems a bit suspect.

    Yep, I have bought loads of cars without V5's, I have always made the seller do a HPI on them and you are clear. This thread just goes to prove ASN is full of moaning middle agers Dave , it CLEARLY says in the listing he has just taken it in PX so why would you expect him to know all about it?

    Why are you saying "it's an S3" or "it's a ringer", just because the guy doesn't have the log book at the moment and doesn't know everything about the car it stop you from going down there and having a good look round it and picking up a bargain. He might even take your S3 in PX!

    Have you guys ever looked at the massive lettering on the top of your V5 which says this...

    Ha ha your to funny.....

    It only takes 2 weeks to get a V5 nowadays, anyway fook it i would skip to the next car for sale....
    You are right it could be a bargain, but if he cant sort a main document of a car out before a sale what else is missing, mainly from the description...
    I think you should buy it and chance the 21st vehicle purchase without a V5..

    I have both bought and sold cars with No V5 present.

    The V5 really doesnt mean much these days and a hand written signed receipt is actually more useful in the eyes of the law when it comes to proving ownership.

    The reason a lot of folk now sell or buy with no V5 present is the time it takes to get it from DVLA if you have :

    A) Transferred a private plate to or from a car - Circa 4-6 weeks
    B) Taken a car as a PX - Circa 4-6 Weeks
    C) Bought a car at an auction - Timescale could be upto 8 weeks

    The reason it takes so long these days is that DVLA are getting hammered with V5 requests as now local offices in Scotland are in the process of being shut down so all their admin work recently has been getting sent down to HQ in Swansea.

    There is the odd occasion you might get a V5 back in a couple of weeks but out of the 40+ cars I have bought and sold over the years I thnk I have had a V5 back within 2 weeks about twice if your lucky !

    Sometimes traders sell a car and dont process the V5 straight away such is the case at an auction house. They sell 1,000's of cars a day in some cases so by the time they gather up all the V5's to send off that can add a week or so onto the already long delay at DVLA hence I have seen me waiting upto 8 weeks for a V5 to come through !

    There is no problem at all with buying or selling a car with a V5, you just have to be vigilant and do all the checks. You can easily call DVLA whilst viewing the car quoting the VIN number etc and find out all the information you need to know if you are really that concerned.

    I hate to admit it but I really have snapped up some bargains by actuallly haggling on the price due to the fact no V5 is present knowing full well its really not hard to get a replacement, especially if you even just get the green V5/c slip !

    iv had to get v5s for other vehicles. One didnt turn up, so I applied for a new one, and then 2 turned up... Another was for a bike, which had been off the road for a few years, so I applied for a new one. So not ever a problem unless the car is registered as stolen.

    Like said a written receipt with all details on it is far more valuable. But if you were serious about this car you would have to go see it and base your judgement on the condition of the car, any sign of it being a ringer, and the attitude of the seller.

    Does seem like a brilliant rep if it is, lots of money spent for it to get this way, which you would want to see reciepts for, unless you really are naive...

    Everyone seems to be missing the point here. I don't know ANY 8l TDi's with S3 rear arches!!!!!!

    When I asked him the question on ebay the answer he gave was that the previous owner did the conversion work.

    I'll hazard a guess at that being because....The previous owner actually did the work.


    Replacing arches isn't a problem, when Prawn walked into Audi with his 10 year old, 150K A3 and demanded that they replace the 1/4's because they were rotten they still did it. Who's to say this guy didn't get hold of a pair of S3 rear 1/4's and have a bodyshop fit them.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
