    Highly tuned A3 on PH anyone?

    Certainly looks that way...this chap claims that a proper custom map could pull another 100bhp from this remapped S3 killing monster http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2000-AUDI-A3-1...item2eaa844caf

    Obviously a pleb without a clue - just look at what he has done to the poor thing, hideous, utterly hideous.

    Shame could be a nice motor.

    This is what happens when our lovely VAG machines become affordable, they end up in council estates bolstering the chav brigade.

    Car has potential, just needs to be in the right hands! Someone can bag a bargain here, a few teaks here and there, and it could be a machine.

    Not for me though.

    well i thought the spec list looked ok...but the 2500 price tag is too steep IMO for the work that would need doing and the fact the car would need new rims straight away!!...and thats not hit his reserve

    he will take an M3 in it though if its an S3 beater....M3's aren't that much faster to be fair than a mapped S3

    Ok hate the car, although could be made look nice in the right hand. E46 m3 produce 341 bhp and 287lb/ft so I guess he was talking about the torque, a friend has an m3, and boy it is quick I beat him 0-70ish but god be with you after that. So yeah torque and quattro kicks ass low end, but weight and lack of bhp makes you really slow in the top end compared to an m3.

    Just wanted to say something about ppl advertising cars too many times, a mate went to buy an a6 last year near Bermingham and the price was about 1000 cheaper than anywhere else, after arriving a local car wash manager noticed they were waiting, he asked them if they were after an audi, they replied yes, and then he asked them to desapare asap as the a6 was a trap on the net and previous potential buyers were robbed,so yeah they were lucky. But potentially it could be a trap.

    I dont think its a GT series, he says its a T28, so prob an uprated version of that, which def wont make 350brake!

    Its not a GT series at all, its a nrmal T28, he mentions a 360' thrust bearing, so obviously its not a rollerbearing turbo at all

    I can't believe this is still for sale, I looked at this car last year when I was looking to buy my A3.

    You can tell how old it is from this statement on the write up
    Water Pump replaced today 5th February 2009 @ Audi cost 442.00
    . Something smells a bit fishy about it to be fair, which is why I didn't by it. If it was a bargain maybe, but he wanted 5 grand for it when I was looking.... No way Pedro.

    Why would you go to the time, expense and trouble of fitted a T28 and then not get it mapped to it's full potential? Seems utterly ridiculous to me....

    GT28 was made, but thats not a GT28Rs.. GT28 is into the 300's maybe
    Are you thinking it's a journal bearing turbo? If so, can I have the lag please?

    Its only a T28, its not that big (well not compared to my T78 on the skyline lol)

    The biggest joke is halfway thru the write up he says only selling because he needs a diesel, then in one of the answers to a question he says he's getting an M3

    Well, lets be fair to it. OK the colour isn't everyone's cup of tea agreed, but I like it. I in fact have one in that colour.

    And to be fair, it's had time and money spent on it. 237 BHP isn't shabby, and it's got potential if the hardware listed thats been fitted is correct....

    All in all, it could be a diamond in the rough! Or it could be a nail.

    You decide, our lines are open.
