    Welcome to the sale of my S3! Im only selling so i can save up some money for a few years and get a very nice car i have been hankering after since I was a small boy!
    It has 126k on the clock with full documented history. Since i have owned it i have:
    -Replaced the timing belt, tensioner, waterpump, aux belt & tensioner. GEN AUDI PARTS
    -Replaced glovebox
    -Replaced ashtray
    -Replaced all coilpacks for updated design.
    -Replaced rocker cover gasket and inspected camshafts for wear.
    -Resprayed front bumper due to stone chips
    -Replaced headlamp washer pumps and motors
    -Updated the car with facelift xenon headlamps and tailamps
    -Fitted weitec hicon GT coilover suspension
    -Replaced top mount bushes
    -Replaced track rod ends
    -Fitted adjustable stainless steel rear tie bars to correct rear camber angle after lowering
    -Fitted a powertec induction system and heatshield
    -Fitted a forge dump valve
    -Has MINT Rota grid drifts 18x9.5 et 38 5x100 with 20mm spacers all round!
    -4 very good tyres 215/40/18
    -New rear discs and pads about 1500 miles ago
    -Tax and test until the end of march
    -Rear wiper deleted using a glass grommet
    -I also have the original airbox and dump valve which I will include.
    -Had the camber setup so it looks mean and handles with almost no understeer! Very nice handling car at the moment, and very comfy for coilies!


    It has pretty much all the options ticked apart from a sunroof and armrest, so has the heated full leather recaros, factory window tints ETC
    I have a load of receipts for things going back from when the car was new so too much to list here.


    The only bad bits are the DIS has pixels missing and a few parking dents but nothing major at all. Also it will need some front antirollbar bushes at some point as they do clonk abit.It wont come with the headunit pictured but I will put one in it for the buyer.


    Probably a lot of stuff I have forgotten but please give us a shout with questions.


    Price with Rotas £4800
    Price Bring your own wheels £3800


    Contact me (Jon)on: ZERO SEVEN EIGHT SEVEN FOUR SIX ONE NINE FIVE FOUR ONE
    On the rotas (it can go alot lower than this but i was running it at this height for winter)

    I would take 850 for the wheels as they are, I would prefer swaps for some cheaper rims and cash my way though.

    There pretty good actually, and 300 wouldn't be enough for decent tyres you would be hard pushed to get bugets for that. It doesnt matter anyway as they are stretched!

    You can get falken 452 tyres for £75 each on camskill and there better than budget tyres I would say. I only paid £950 for my Volks which Rotas are a cast replica of so best of luck with the sale.

    Show me where you can get me some volk te37 for under a grand with tyres and I will buy them! Fallen are classed as a budget tyres in my eyes as are the acceleras I have on the Rotas.

    I bought mine from a Japanese breakers down south for my integra can't remember exact name of the place. Had falkens on that when the bridgestones wore out and they were pretty good blend of grip and durability I thought. I would class budget tyres as something like Conway killers, wanli or nankangs.
    Never had whatever you have on the Rotas so couldn't comment.

    Still open to offers on wheels or the car as a whole! Although i think the wheels are priced very fairly considering the wheels are over a grand new without tyres and these are as good as new with tyres and spacers!

    Hmm, it's a fairly long way for me, I'm down in Dorset mostly...

    Do you think you would accept £3500 as it's quite a way... I know it's a lot to ask for such a good example, but if you don't ask, you don't get ;)

    Yep peterborough in cambs. Its also probably worth mentioning that this is a very early car without the front strut brace and has the smaller bushes in the wishbones so it handles like audi originally intended, not like the neutered understeery later ones!

    Well, you know my position John :) Also, one question I forgot to ask in my endless texting - What's the head unit you're providing it with? I just ask, as I have a fairly decent one, but will be selling my MX5, and will be able to get a bit more if I sell my head unit with it, hence, wanted to see what one you'll provide. Does it have iPod connectivity?

    Im sure its a pioneer, its quite old but has quite a good spec from what I remember. Also has dome 6x9s in the parcel shelf which are JBL and quite good. I dont think it has a usb connection but it does have an AUX port so ipods can be hooked up via 3.5mm jack.

    Is it? I didn't realise mate, I dont do a lot of night driving and find dip beam bright enough for most things. It's only a halogen bulb on that though fortunately, and not a xenon like the dipbeam.

    That is a satnav/telephone aerial, it was on there when i bought it. That is weird, i have never had to put a bulb in it so they might be a bit old now! Although i may never have noticed the high beam one.
