    For the lazy amongst you: LINKY

    ...And agreed, trés dodgé... The power figures are very interesting too...

    Q: hi mate do what bhp extra does the twin turbo give it from the s3 single turbo?
    A: i think its 225bhp but i know ist definatly in the 200 hundreds cheers

    Maybe that means the factory turbo has suffered a crack and split? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    What Car (not that reliable I know but they often come out a bit high) values a 2000 S3 with 93K on the clock at £8196 for a private sale, so the starting price of £8000 is a bit off if it needs at least £500 (his estimate) worth of body repair...

    Interested to know where the other turbo's hidden! One under the bonnet one in a box in the boot? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    And no MOT or tax? No thanks.

    And I think a few people on here would be really keen to find out where they got the manifold and other accoutrements from!

    Only one twin-turbo S3 springs to my mind, which I think belonged to Kim Collins of QST and had a bi-turbo RS4 engine-transplant (if memory serves); so although "only" using a 1.8 lump; any twin turbo S3 has to be a bit special and worth a touch more than £8000. I guess it'd probably be looked after better too.

    The main waffle in the Ad reads waaaaay too dodgy; and more comical every time. Still, it did remind me that at the end of this month I'll have "know" Tax either! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    This bloke cannot be serious about selling the car, surely?

    He knows nothing about the vehicle, he has no idea of grammar and certainly knows nothing about advertising. Not even one picture. He's a fool.

    What an idiot! Does he really think someone will bid and part with £8000 not having seen any pics or even read a valid description.

    My question:

    "Has this car had the Audi S4 2.7 Twin Turbo engine fitted? As the S3 never came as a twin turbo as standard. If the car has been converted who did the work? Also pictures are required to back up your claims!"

    Apparantly when it is a 'new' car (read -2000) 'know' need for MOTs! It simply doesn't matter. yippee, I've been wasting my money all these years.

    hmmmm - somethings not right at all with that.

    this is just a guess, but is it an audi TT and did he think as it was 1.8t it is a 'TwinTurbo', its shocking how little some people know about their own cars! it may even be his partners :S , maybe he is just trying to get interest in the car for selling it, but agree it is over priced, maybe it is a ball park figure for him,

    what does TT stand for anyway ? never having owned one,,

    I always assumed it was named after the Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy). I could be wrong though!

    I've heard TTs and S3s described as being twin turbo before.

    I think the "TT" causes confusion and I also think people think twin intercoolers is the same as twin turbo.
