    Angry reply from S3 advert

    this is the email I received for a recent advert for a cheap low miler S3,and even in the subject heading it had RE: 'Audi S3 Quattro 2.0 TFSI' at PistonHeads.com but the herbert must of had his wires crossed when writing the email

    Hello,
    The car is located in Munich,Germany and so am I. We've recently moved to Germany and brought it with us.It's in showroom condition, no scratches, no dents, accident-free.
    2008 DEFENDER 110 COUNTY STATION WAGON,UK registered.RHD, UK supplied (NOT AN IMPORT)21000 Miles.
    The price I'm after is 11,495 pounds sterling including delivery to your home address and full insurance during shipping.
    Please let me know if you're interested so I can provide you with further details.
    Thanks for your interest
