    does anyone know this car?

    Hi guys! Posted a couple of times about this car but trying to find out more info.

    All I know is its got a full milltek turbo back system. I'm going to take it to AMD in Essex but am trying to find out as much as I can first. I know it was in Manchester on the plate S3 AXD until Jan this year. Inside it has recaro buckets, Nav, Bose.

    Thanks for any help. I just want to make sure its running as well as it can, I think it might be running a bit rich at the mo due to a slight smell on start up and poor mpg (but that may be completely normal).

    Thanks for any help!

    Here's the engine bay!

    I think it looks pretty standard, but by no means an expert.

    I am going to try that too. Obviously no guarantee of an answer though. But thanks.

    Well the engine cover has been modified for some reason. Possibly due to a catch can pipe routing or something, I don't know, but it's not as from factory.

    Check the sticker under the boot carpet and make note of all option codes and research them on the internet. That way you will be able to tell if anything has been retro fitted

    Other than that, if it doesn't have any warning lights on, just get out there and drive it and stop worrying.

    I just want to make sure its running as well as it can
    Contacting the previous owner/finding info about the car on the net isn't going to tell you how well it's running, only a specialist/VCDS and yourself can tell you that.
