    Another misrepresented car on Fleabay :(

    Another one! Does my nut in.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=280143276535

    Selling it as a Facelift 225bhp.

    The only thing I can see is facelift front and rear lights and gearknob, otherwise it's clearly a pre-facelift 210bhp version, year 2000.

    Also he says that the ESP and airbag lights being on do not affect performance, what about safety!?!?
    ESP light being on means the ABS won't be working so not only will you slide into the car in front but the airbags won't save you either!

    Makes my blood boil!

    I doubt that private plate is worth £1500. I will never get tired of BBS LM's though.

    I saw a nice imola S3 on autotrader with 55k on it but the seller had '45k until cambelt change' but the change is needed at 60k or 5 years old which I know was revised by Audi last year,I sent the seller an email stating this and he sent me one back saying the car had gone and it went to the first buyer the gem!!

    I love the LM's but don't think they suit an S3 - look stunning on the MK4 - pitty they cost so much!

    yer definately not newer model if was sept 2000.
    If you look at last pic you can see it has the old style buttons on the centre console where on newer ones you would also have a cup holder.

    Nice car though with nice wheels (not worth 3500). Wouldnt really care about the private plate which is probably worth 300 at most.

    also has the old style badges on clocks and steering wheel, what a cock!

    i wouldnt be put off by a few owners on an S3, if you think about it theyre a bit like scoobies, people buy them because they love them, then realise theyre expensive to insure, run, maintain etc etc... so sell them on after having their bit of fun owning them.
