    My old S3 for sale on Pistonheads

    This is really strange as I was only thinking about this today and was looking on piston heads and what was there......Linky to for sale.

    Audi : AUDI S3 MTM

    The guys bent the truth a bit here and there - so in case of any perspective buyers from here - I thought I'd give you the lowdown.

    Full Audi Service History,
    Not quite true - as I serviced it a couple of times at a local specialist called Automark in Stokelsy.

    last service was done 1000miles ago get a regular oil filter and oil change every 6000miles.

    11 months mot road tax has just run out.

    Car spec:- colour blue Azure very rare colour, Half black leather and blue swede recaro heated seats with electric adjustments and lumber support, drivers arm rest, adjustable steering column, front and side airbags, 6 speed gear box, tripcomputer, cruise control, air conditioning, electric window, sun roof, mirrors and central locking. Full BOSE sound system with 6 disc auto changer,zenon head lights with washers fog lights.
    Loved that colour Azure Blue

    ADDITIONAL MODS!!

    All tuning work was carried out by Kim Collins of Quattro sports tuning (QST) renowned tuner of high end Audis.
    Oooh no it wasnt...

    Rolling road print out available 286bhp 307pft
    from AMD's rolling road lottery many moons ago.

    Private plate to be sold with car S3DRL cost over a grand!
    I bought the car with it on from a guy called Daryl who left it on the car when I bought it. It was 250 direct from the DVLA.

    MTM ECU upgrade
    Remap done by Kim Collins

    MTM Dump valve,
    erm -its a forge one

    MTM clutch upgrade along with new Audi compression plate and new dual mass flywheel which was just fitted two months ago and cost 11500.
    Er no it wasnt, yes its an MTM friction plate (which is actually just a Sachs uprated one with Sach's ground off and MTM stamped into it. I had this fitted just before I sold it in 2005.

    MTM induction kit with storage box and a direct cold air feed,
    Erm - wrong - its a Universal stainless steel air filter with a stainless steel heatshield which I made in the workshop at work over 5 years ago - did a good job though - but its not an MTM one.
    My pic




    MTM lowered 30mm suspension,
    yep - fitted by QST - Kim Collins

    MTM adjustable rear tie bars,
    Nope - they're forge adjustable ones - bought them off a guy on Audisport and fitted them myself folled by a biesbarth 4 wheel alignment done.

    Blue Samco hose kit fitted by Auto Mark,
    Yep

    Brembo GT four piston callipers and bigger discs, Braided hose kit,
    Yep - fitted by me on my drive - bought from a guy on Audi-Sport.net

    Full magnex s/s exhaust system,
    Yep - on the car when I bought it - fitted by QST - Kim Collins

    new angel eye headlights and rear lights.
    Urghhh - not fitted my me!

    All receipts have been kept for this car from servicing to modifications, credit checks welcome no outstanding charges on this car.

    Feel free to e-mail me on (see pistonheads advert)

    I have car advertised else where and have the right to remove this listing at any given time. cheers for looking!! HAPPY BIDDING!!

    Indeed happy bidding.

    He tried selling this about a year ago and I emailed him and highlighted some of the obvious things that any enthusiast would spot as anomolies but he wouldnt have it.

    So heres the truth in case anyone is wanting to buy it.

    Was a cracking car when I owned it and still do miss it sometimes

    I love it when people just make up stories about a motor they're selling... An old car of mine is on PH with 40,000 LESS miles than when I sold it....lol.

    Fishy...

    hehehe - it certainly is bizarre when you're thinking about something like that and then low and behold it pops up! Maybe you're psychic Paul?

    It certainly was a nice car, I remember from the meet way back. I wish I'd asked for a ride out in it with ya!

    I hate the fact the guy is dishonest, and it really irritates me that he has used such poor quality pics to advertise it. That always makes me think the car is dodgy, or that it could just be a picture stolen from somewhere else! I guess one of the funniest things is that you make the advert sound much more appealing! Heh

    Good stuff!

    What irratates me the most is when people write in brackets how much the mod costs and then add them all to like 4000 spent over 3 years. Like this din and he didnt even put the money into the mods anyway, i feel sorry for the idiot whos going to buy this car off him. Not as in a bad car. its lovely but he/shes going to get bumped off !
    Its gone replaced with a mk2 golf gti 16v :D

    Re Spacers, yes mate they have 15mm on the rear and 10mm on the front. With teo sets of Mcguards longer locking wheel bolts too.

    The wheels that were in my pics were oem 18" Audi wheels too.

    Loved that car.

    I replaced it with a brand new Leon cupra R which I never modded.

    Then a company vectra 'yuk'.

    Now have the S3 below and am itching to start modding again

    Where would we be without forums huh? Can you imagine the amount of interest he is drumming up with his nicely written piece, then the new owner comes on here and reads all the above lol.
