    Ko3s

    Hi all I know it's been covered numerous times & I have read into it but do I stand a chance of having a ko3s ? It's a 2000 x plate aum , I gather there is a difference in the blades 8 ko3s against 12 ko3 is this the only indentifier as such? If its a realy stupid question just indulge me!

    1.8T = k03

    No. Just no.

    Next you will be telling him a red T means 180bhp.

    It will have had a K03s as standard, but not because it is a Sport. Because it is an AUM.

    Facelift and pre-facelift cars were both called A3 1.8T Sport.

    People bang on about the S meaning sport in a K03s, which is bull****. In fact, K03s doesn't exist. It is all down to the number of the turbo.

    The s has just come about because SO MANY people call them a K03s (myself included).

    Many thanks , still happy as the turbo should be the better of the two regarding modding.

    Jardo is largely correct, although for completeness, it's worth noting that whilst in the UK the only 1.8T you could buy came in 'Sport' Trim, in Europe you could also buy a 1.8T SE. I've seen one in the UK once before. Rare though.

    You and I both know somebody who thought they were buying a Sport and ended up with an imported SE which is dog turd spec with no climate, plastic four spoke steering wheel and a few other niceties removed such as the adjustment on the wiper control and the rear sub. But was mechanically identical to a Sport.
