Facelift A3 (51 Plate) Quick Question
Just a quick question as to where the diagnostic port is on the facelift model - I would imagine it is just beneath the ash tray like my pre facelift. Just wanted to double check as a friend wants me to go look at a 5 Door A3 tomorrow for test drive.
We went to see it tonight briefly. The garage owner reckons it's pumping out 220bhp (from an A3 1.8T) I asked if that was from a chip only - he said standard :whistle2:...to this I was a bit amused. Not wanting to be rude I stated that it was unlikely without some heavy mods. He then said no no, it is - it says in the book. Maybe it's because it's a 5 door variant it gathers that extra bhp :blush:
Asides from that bull****, I have an iffy feeling about the car and advised my mate to walk away - he's still keen. The car is rockin 128k, it's been lowered - probs around 40mm, it's defo had paintwork, inside are a few worn areas - to be expected through age to and extent I guess. It also has sline badges on the side trim to the rear quater arches, and the owner kept recalling to it at the sline A3 - :banghead:
Anyway, we shall see what the test drive is like tomorrow, at £4k I'll be having some stern words with my friend. I just need to know exactly where the vagcom port is - maybe I have to peel back some trim under the ashtray to get to it? The guy was pretty shocked when I mentioned all this and then asked..."can you chip them" :blush: If I'd said yes I get the impression his next set of questions would have been a bit more dodgy!
Whoops - maybe not so such a short question! Well as we know that's often my style - a bit of waffle!
