    TQS Avant on the trader V837SWL

    Thought I would make people aware of this one as I had a wasted trip up there to see it after being told it was a great nick

    Went to see this one in Wakefield

    not in great condition at all

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...00952349031453


    • guys had clanged it over christmas hitting a low wall so front bumper hanging off, o/s light cracked, bif scuffs on the bumper - to be fair he said he would sort it but could not tell if the underneath was damaged
    • no service histroy whatsoever so could not verify the mileage - claimed it was a female owner and driver but had a boost gauge, stainless exhaust !
    • ABS light on - passenger side accoding to vag com
    • knock sensor fault code
    • engine speed exceeded fault code
    • mixture adaptation exceeded
    • Engine temp sensor fualt code
    • Airbacg igniter intermittant
    • Alarm trigger fault codes
    • REBUILT engine, looked a bit odd and quite a few pipes split or snapped, engine cover was different - this was only mentioned after I opened the bonnet!
    • engine was warm, guys had been using it as a personal car
    • trim missing on doors
    • ghetto stereo fitted
    • custom exhaust on it - sounded pretty loud
    • alloys in poor condition
    • no tailgate partition in the boot
    • price has fluctuated from 2k upto 3k now
    • probably remapped
    • forgot to add - oil dip stick was loose / did not fit and was not an audi one, totally mismatched for the car
    Probably only good for a strip out, did not even bother to drive it

    He must have had those photos taken by a professional photographer!

    Shame he could only make it after dark, must have a packed schedule.

    Yeah... but for 3k, you'd hope it was at a good standard already!

    Very true ! Guess they might have to lower the price if it's not selling.

    price has gone up though!

    making a cheeky offer might work, but it would have to factor in a proper engine sort out as well as all the cosmetics plus the usual things like suspension arms etc

    main thing is there is no service histroy or book

    just a V5 and a MOT!
