    This is really strange as I was only thinking about this today and was looking on piston heads and what was there......Linky to for sale.

    Audi : AUDI S3 MTM

    The guys bent the truth a bit here and there - so in case of any perspective buyers from here - I thought I'd give you the lowdown.

    Not quite true - as I serviced it a couple of times at a local specialist called Automark in Stokelsy.

    Loved that colour Azure Blue

    Oooh no it wasnt...

    from AMD's rolling road lottery many moons ago.

    :laugh: I bought the car with it on from a guy called Daryl who left it on the car when I bought it. It was £250 direct from the DVLA.

    Remap done by Kim Collins

    erm -its a forge one

    Er no it wasnt, yes its an MTM friction plate (which is actually just a Sachs uprated one with Sach's ground off and MTM stamped into it. I had this fitted just before I sold it in 2005.

    Erm - wrong - its a Universal stainless steel air filter with a stainless steel heatshield which I made in the workshop at work over 5 years ago - did a good job though :) - but its not an MTM one.

    yep - fitted by QST - Kim Collins

    Nope - they're forge adjustable ones - bought them off a guy on Audisport and fitted them myself folled by a biesbarth 4 wheel alignment done.

    Yep

    Yep - fitted by me on my drive - bought from a guy on Audi-Sport.net

    Yep - on the car when I bought it - fitted by QST - Kim Collins

    Urghhh - not fitted my me!


    Indeed happy bidding.

    He tried selling this about a year ago and I emailed him and highlighted some of the obvious things that any enthusiast would spot as anomolies but he wouldnt have it.

    So heres the truth in case anyone is wanting to buy it.

    Was a cracking car when I owned it and still do miss it sometimes

    I love it when people just make up stories about a motor they're selling... An old car of mine is on PH with 40,000 LESS miles than when I sold it....lol.

    Fishy...

    hehehe - it certainly is bizarre when you're thinking about something like that and then low and behold it pops up! Maybe you're psychic Paul?

    It certainly was a nice car, I remember from the meet way back. I wish I'd asked for a ride out in it with ya!

    I hate the fact the guy is dishonest, and it really irritates me that he has used such poor quality pics to advertise it. That always makes me think the car is dodgy, or that it could just be a picture stolen from somewhere else! I guess one of the funniest things is that you make the advert sound much more appealing! Heh

    Good stuff!

    What irratates me the most is when people write in brackets how much the mod costs and then add them all to like £4000 spent over 3 years. Like this din and he didnt even put the money into the mods anyway, i feel sorry for the idiot whos going to buy this car off him. Not as in a bad car. its lovely but he/shes going to get bumped off !

    Re Spacers, yes mate they have 15mm on the rear and 10mm on the front. With teo sets of Mcguards longer locking wheel bolts too.

    The wheels that were in my pics were oem 18" Audi wheels too.

    Loved that car.

    I replaced it with a brand new Leon cupra R which I never modded.

    Then a company vectra 'yuk'.

    Now have the S3 below and am itching to start modding again :)

    Where would we be without forums huh? Can you imagine the amount of interest he is drumming up with his nicely written piece, then the new owner comes on here and reads all the above lol.
