    Which Engine - S3

    I have bought a 2001 S3and am going to collect it tomorrow.
    just wondering before I go and get it if there is a way of telling which engine version it has either from the chassis number or visually from a photo of the engine top?

    thanks guys

    AMK = 210, BAM = 225

    Largely academic to be honest, no attributable differences that a remap won't cure... If its the right car don't be put off by the fact its got 15bhp less if its an AMK..

    Do you have any part of the V5 docs?

    Should be part of the engine number... also be able to tell by CO2 as well, 210bhp(AMK) is 224 co's and BAM is 226 co's IIRC...

    I have the VIN number as I got it to perform checks on it, have the reg and V5 doc number and issue date along with date the car was 1st registered
    I am wondering if it is a 210 bhp or 225 bhp model.

    Pretty sure the label says the actual engine type as I remember seeing BAM when I was looking under there earlier today.

    Will it tell you anything like factory fitted options?

    This is what it says on the website;

    You receive one message about model and value, and one message about performance:
    exact make and model
    colour
    date of registration
    new price (ex options)
    average current value
    average mileage for age
    total cylinder capacity
    engine horsepower
    torque
    acceleration (0-60 mph)
    top speed
    average petrol consumption
    weight
    CarSpotter is not a subscription service. If you text a registration number to 86007, CarSpotter sends you a maximum of two text messages costing 1.50 each. Maximum total cost 3.00, plus the charge for the use of your mobile phone.

    G60leigh, if it's not too late, send me your reg no and I can tell you what engine code you've got.

    you bought a car not knowing which engine it has or basically didn't care ?
    So basically, from reading above you are saying there are no differences between the 210 and 225 engine apart from the 15bhp ?

    2 cars being equal in every respect apart from engines, would have the 225 engined higher in price.
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !

    Yep, pretty much. Obviously there are small variations across the 4 different engines that they put in the S3s, but nothing that really matters. Maps were the main difference with the BAM.

    Not to hijack the original posters thread,

    AMK or BAM

    Does it really matter? Both have a facelift and from reading the forums, both AMK and BAM electronic VVT. Only difference is 15bhp....
