    Service History:

    The car has two leather Audi wallets with all the dealership history from new, receipts, servicing, MOT’s, handbooks, both remote keys and skeleton key.

    At 98,000 miles I also had the following work carried out with all dealership documentation and stamped service history book to prove:

    Cam Belt Kit
    Aux Belt
    Water Pump
    Tensioner Dampener
    Platinum Oil, Filter and Sump Plug Change
    G12 Coolant Change
    Dipstick and Inlet Manifold Cover – Due to them looking slightly brittle

    At the same time I decided to get the stem seals replaced due to a small amount of steam on colder mornings. So I took the opportunity to also have all 20 valves replaced with new guides, stem seals as planned, a very small head skim, a new head gasket, rocker cover gasket and any other relevant gaskets. As I have mentioned I have all the documentation to show the work from an approved main dealership.

    The car has covered 3,000 miles since the work and has had another Platinum Oil and Filter change since then along with a Gearbox Oil Change at the same dealership with stamps all in the service history book. I am confident in saying that you will not find a smoother driving Audi S3.

    Negative Points – (Well every car has them):

    - N/S Door has a scratch which has been touched in
    - There are a few inconsiderate parking dinks and the O/S section of the rear bumper has been scuffed
    - Some Alloys have been scuffed previously

    Obviously these things are amplified slightly given that the car is black in colour, but I have recently given it care with a Meguiars Clay Bar, Autoglym Super Resin Polish, Meguiars Tech Wax, Autosol Metal Polish for the Exhaust Pipes and Wing Mirrors, Water Based Wheel Cleaner, along with finishing trim shines and detailing spray. The interior is also regularly leather conditioned and shined, kept well hovered, and with a non smoking owner and fresh air fresheners, presents as new.


    Thank you for taking the time to read my advert, after putting this together I question myself if I should be parting with it but unfortunately it has to go.

    The Price:


    I will listen to offers, deals, part exchanges etc on the car but I am primarily looking for the cash, hence having to make the sale in the first place.
