Needed a replacement for my Octavia VRS TDI so with my greatly reduced weekly commute this seemed the best mix of performance and practicality for my budget.
So after realising there wasn't very much available here in Ireland in the condition I wanted for any kind of reasonable money I headed to Edinburgh last Sunday morning and picked up this.
The cars a "Ming Blue" Facelift 2001 AMK engine with 115k miles on the clock which came Folder full Audi service receipts including a lot of recent work on common S3 faults at this age and mileage.
Overall the car is in quiet good condition for its age, there are a few very minor areas of the paint which I will hopefully give attention to in the coming months but nothing too noticable. Interior is in good condition overall with none of the usual wear on buttons and facia seen in S3's of this generation.
The wheels could do with a refurb but as they came with practically new Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres on them I think I will get the winter out of them before I decide on whether I will refurb or change them.
I don't plan on going mad on the mods with this, I'm impressed with how sure footed the the standard suspension is so that will be staying. I have fitted a Badger 5 TIP and performance air filter so that along with a Joe Power remap should more than satisfy my power needs. Other than H&R spacers front and back I think will just be a case maintaining it and enjoy driving it.
