    Is this legit?

    Hi guys, newbie here...hiya!

    Question is regarding this car ..

    Used Audi A3 Hatchback 2.0 T Fsi Quattro S Line Special Edition 3dr | Stephenhannahcars.com

    Reason I ask is the radio unit? Doesn't seem like standard on a sline never mind a 'special edition'..

    Any thoughts

    Thanks,

    NoFear

    It's not dodgy, it's a concert II radio, my 56 plate SLine A3 has the same stereo in it.

    Mines a special edition and it came with double din symphony II unit as standard. So like Fran said its a bit strange that on a s-line esp a special edition that put a standard single din unit in. Otherwise the car looks neat.

    Edit: Just read Aiden's response. In that case the car looks good.

    Hi mate, defo not dodgy, I have worked on plenty A3 s-line's fitting cruise etc which have had the single din radio.
    Can be converted to a double din which will set you back around the the £250 mark, for parts and labour, then you can add the double din stereos or even RNS-e :-)

    go there and find out... some traders... put up their trade signs during the day and by night it looks like a normal house/residence...

    so if you are near by... drive by night or eve... and see if this is the case...

    do your hpi checks/vosa checks and if in doubt speak to audi/previous owner of vehicle... if the car is legit and the seller has nothing to hide then they will welcome any amount of inspections by e.g. a dekra investigator. any sign of hesitation or if the classic speil of "buyer be ware" then run a mile...

    just treat it with caution.. when I brought my quattro the guy genuinely didn't know what he was selling i.e. had all the extras of sport spec but sold it at an "se price." On top of this the trader I brought it from specialised in mercedes and folk with trade their old cars in so he wasn't overly bothered about making a profit either... even this looked suspect to me as I know I saved £500 on the price but it was all genuine.

    and see if you can find any history on the dealer... any local reviews... or even speak to trading standards to check if they are genuine/if people have had any problems.

    Goodluck

    I think it all depends on what you spec at build time mate because i had an 05 plate 8P1 and that had a double din unit in it with built in 6 CD stacker.

    Shouldn't the front leather seats be a newer version?

    Exactly the same inside as my 07 plate was. Although I did have a MFSW.
