    Hi,
    I'm currently the owner of a 2003 Passat TDi Sport 4Motion saloon and i'm looking to change to an Audi S3. Is anyone aware of someone looking to do such a change or do you think it's highly unlikely?

    Thanks,

    Steven.

    It is a silver/blue saloon with 89000 miles. It's standard and is the 130 bhp TDi with audi's quattro 4WD system as opposed to the haldex based 4WD you get on the new Passat. It was serviced and mot'd end of January at a local VW/Audi Specialist. It comes the usual Passat sport spec plus a factory fitted black leather interior and cruise control.

    Nope, they have proper 4WD in the form of a Torsen 4WD system, not the pretender Haldex 4WD system.

    Hi mate, thanks for getting the pics up, I had a word with my mate, but unfortunately he is after an Auto box, so no good on this occasion, good luck tho as the car does look VERY nice!
