    It's 5 years old...it's not the real thing....AND you can get the real thing for a few thousand more from a dealer of all places.

    from the outside it looks mint... love solar orange with black optics but inside is poor, no S3 kick plates, pedals or armrest + bad dash & most of all is that an S3 sticker in a 2.0T DIS?

    Yes outside looks great, haven't quite got the balls to buy an orange car but does look very appealing. Then comes the worst part! just WTF has he done to the clocks man!

    S3 kits on non S3's without badges = WIN
    Full S3 reps = FAIL

    just my opinion, he says as he orders last few bits for S3 facelift for 05 TDi :eyebrows:

    haha they do in RS guise ;)

    i thought id trundle up to Keighley, theres two garages that have the above two S3's, another on the way home in Huddersfield with 3 in, 1 facelift....both of the Keighley garages have some pretty high net cars in, one has lambos etc plus various other cars in my price range, Focus RS, 911, RS4, A5's....just going to have a look round and maybe get a test drive in a few - just outa curiousity ;) chances of me straying off the S3 though are extremely slim

    Seriously, dont buy anything from Keighley trade center or another one called WRC cars, they are the same people ripping people off for years. Do a search on them, they have a bad name on most car forums

    cheers for the heads up Lee...i was just gonna keighley cars to have a look at some of the other cars in my price range..including an orange S3 and A5......the main reason im off up there is to go to Elite car sales in Keighley, trade centre is just conveniently up the road. Then stopping at Shaks car sales in Huddersfield on the way back perhaps, he has a black S3 in and a lot of other high spec Audi's....

    its a kind of ruling out session, none of them have an S tronic like i want

    appreciate the warning though, i wasnt aware of that

    The bad rep came from jap imports and they were well known for selling top spec cars for cheap money however a lo of the cars they were bringing in were knackered and they didnt want to know when they started falling apart. Also many cars were not converted to uk spec correctly and mileagaes didnt add up. The rep got bad so they opened another site under the name WRC Cars. Looking at their website now it seems they have moved away from jap imports however their prices are still very keen.

    Just be on your guard if you visit, plenty of stuff on google

    UKpassats.co.uk • View topic - keighley trade and performance centre

    So whats so bad about keighley Trade center then? - ScoobyNet
