    Another S3 Opinon

    Hi All

    Better get used to me asking you lot questions lol.
    OK.
    T reg S3 RS6 wheels, H&R suspension. Silver recaros. Ł14,250. But with 60k on the clock???? Now its not worth 14k as i have seen 32k mileage ones for that price on a T plate so what would you say it was worth.

    Thanks

    Good point about the mods Munkey, don't forget to check with the insurance company Tanya.

    Did you haggle on the phone with them? If so, don't! Save it for when you get in front of them then really kick their arses on it, you'll be able to knock a lot more off.

    Re: Another S3 Opinon

    The suspension will make a difference! My Dad is looking to buy my BMW off of me, so when he was calling for insurance quotes he was doing well until he said it had AC Schnitzer lowering springs on it.....and then the premium almost doubled for him!!

    You can get the chip removed but it is very expensive, as it normally means unsoldering the chip, unless however it's been serial programmed by Revo, then it should be a piece of piddle.

    Re: Another S3 Opinon

    And this is the problem with modifications. Every insurer takes a different line. Some won't give a monkey's about a lowered suspension and charge you nothing extra, whilst other's won't insure you at all!

    My advice is to tread very carefully.

    Taking the chip out is like taking a stake to its heart!

    BTW What BHP/torque does an AMD chipped 210 S3 deliver?

    But it is better to expect too low and be surprised when it's higher, and now you've ruined it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/****_you.gif[/img] 2
