    well picked the car up today and guess what seller listed it wrong so a bit pissed its not a turbo agu engine in the car its just the standard 1.8 non turbo agn. so guess what i brought it but no where near the price he wanted. anyways i am now the unhappy owner of a 1.8 non turbo audi a3. i knwo i shouldnt moan really as only paid £250 for it.

    car is black has loads of scratches but 12 months mot and drives well. needs new brakes front and rear but thats it. no other problems. so i got home and stuck it on my vag diagnostics tool. found 2 faults. one was leading to air mass meter and other was service light on so nothing major.

    wil lget some pics up asap when given it a good clean and polish.

    i am not all pissed off without, it drives nice so all is not lost. i will be sticking some coilovers and and exhaust system on it as well as an induction kit. just a bit peeved as seller said it was turbo. oh well never mind i guess i got a bargain anyway at £250 so all is not lost. i would love to make it into one of the really nice show cars like i see on here but time will tell. main thing is tidy it up and make it all fresh so its mine and not someone elses car that i have brought as it was neglected. get the usual done first big service and tidy up clean it polish it then some good quality wax to protect it.

    i bet if you whacked it on ebay with no reserve you could make a profit on it and than go and buy a turbo car. do you think even after you modded it you will be entirely happy or just wish you had a turbo one...

    or do a conversion :sm4:

    i wanted a turbo one but already had forked out deposit for this,, deposit on insurance and train fare to pick it up. so would of been out of pocket if didnt collect. i could stick it on ebay and make a profit but not enough to buy a turbo one. thats why i was pissed off when picking car up that i was told it was turbo but actually wasnt. i am looking into the conversion as could do it all myself apart from the technical computer side of setting up fueling etc. i have heard that you need clocks, keys and ecu from donor car aswell.
