    Buying S3 with replacment Engine by Audi at 50k

    Hi Everyone,

    Im currently looking at buying an S3 ive seen a 2001 model with 72k on the clock but the owner told me the engine has been replaced by Audi at 50k with a cost of 4.5K do you think its worth buying or should this sort of car be avoided at all cost?

    Thanks

    Was it replaced with a brand new engine or a reconditioned one?
    Does it come with all the paperwork from Audi?

    Provided the owner has the paperwork from Audi to prove that it is a new engine and was fitted by Audi dealers then there should be no real reason to not buy the car. As with any car it comes down to condition and spec, so make sure you check everything as you would normally, and above all make sure you get the paperwork from the seller for when you eventually come to sell the car. Also, make sure the engine numbers match the receipt, V5 and the vehicle, just in case some wise guy is pulling a fast one. Hope this helps
