    well picked the car up today and guess what seller listed it wrong so a bit pissed its not a turbo agu engine in the car its just the standard 1.8 non turbo agn. so guess what i brought it but no where near the price he wanted. anyways i am now the unhappy owner of a 1.8 non turbo audi a3. i knwo i shouldnt moan really as only paid £250 for it.

    car is black has loads of scratches but 12 months mot and drives well. needs new brakes front and rear but thats it. no other problems. so i got home and stuck it on my vag diagnostics tool. found 2 faults. one was leading to air mass meter and other was service light on so nothing major.

    wil lget some pics up asap when given it a good clean and polish.

    Good that you picked up the car, sorry it wasnt what you expected, you will soon love it though, you will do some mods to it and make it your own. Will look forward to the pics. For local meets click the link below and add yourself to the members list in your area. x

    i am not all pissed off without, it drives nice so all is not lost. i will be sticking some coilovers and and exhaust system on it as well as an induction kit. just a bit peeved as seller said it was turbo. oh well never mind i guess i got a bargain anyway at £250 so all is not lost. i would love to make it into one of the really nice show cars like i see on here but time will tell. main thing is tidy it up and make it all fresh so its mine and not someone elses car that i have brought as it was neglected. get the usual done first big service and tidy up clean it polish it then some good quality wax to protect it.

    i bet if you whacked it on ebay with no reserve you could make a profit on it and than go and buy a turbo car. do you think even after you modded it you will be entirely happy or just wish you had a turbo one...

    or do a conversion

    i wanted a turbo one but already had forked out deposit for this,, deposit on insurance and train fare to pick it up. so would of been out of pocket if didnt collect. i could stick it on ebay and make a profit but not enough to buy a turbo one. thats why i was pissed off when picking car up that i was told it was turbo but actually wasnt. i am looking into the conversion as could do it all myself apart from the technical computer side of setting up fueling etc. i have heard that you need clocks, keys and ecu from donor car aswell.
