    Cool

    Yes I read your other post, I'm not sure if engines u/s on this car but I'm quite shore it is, what new parts did they have to fit to yours and what kind of warranty did they give thanks


    ive come from Bmw and other sports cars, never really had anything other than sports cars since passing my test but this is one of my all time fav cars I've always said I would get at some point in my life, I never managed to get one of the first but this came up at the right cash I think , but I did buy it thinking I would have to put an engine in it and if not then its a bonus

    ive looked through the site for a while and it nice to see there are a lot of very clever members on here and very helpful, I'm hoping I can pick there brains and come to some meets. My little lad is a mad petrol head and the audi is his favourite manufacture ( loves the R8) and the s3

    sorry to go on a bit

    Hi guys had a little play with the car today for a couple of hours, I've managed to sort out some problems, and now the car will turn over fine but it will not fire up at all, turns over fine but just seems like there's no spark so to speak, anyone got any ideas to help me out, cheers

    I will if I get this car sorted and on the road it would be good to meet smoother owners , I've never driven one of these yet, I've had an R32 Mkv that I loved and once sold wished I hadn't, and then for the last 6 years I've had bmw m3's I between the golf and always said one of these would be my all time favo car's + I'm 46 and out of a the sports cars I've had ( which is a lot) I don't think I've had a turbo car , so looking forward to sorting this car

    Hi, newby from York

    I have had company cars until last year (change of direction and company) now have a company van. Had sensible cars for the past 10 years, the wife needs something to use for the school run and to get her to work.

    I have always wanted an Audi, so when the Astra decided it was going to start to cost money we changed, and I'm still loving it.

    ShaunS3 coded my cruise control after I fitted it. PM him but he's based in Huddersfield

    Your little lad sounds cool, obviously picks his cars well. I'm 29 and I still love the R8. I love my S3 too. Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks guy for the welcome , yeah he takes after me, with his choice of cars, I don't keep my car for that long but I think when I've sorted this out, I buy a few damaged ones and repair them when I'm not to busy with my building and most on the time ill run them for a few months or give the wife one for her and the kids, or ill sell and try to make a few notes for the next car, it's a hobby I've had for over 25 years ,
    Thanks again guys
