    I like the fact its got an AIDS like sticker on it saying iv got boost issues, when the car actually has boost issues with it been hesitant when on the throttle.

    And the dent on the side is obviously where some has thought what a Doyle with them shyt stickers I'm going to throw a stone at them...

    Possibly stolen recovered then? I read somewhere that cars which are stolen recovered have 9owners+ on searches.

    i sold mine about 3 yrs ago, lovely motor, but full of problems. my pals got a nice looking 1, but it spends more time up on axlestands lol. Mine was bored out with all lightened and balanced bottom end, running 235bhp on go-tech management. i ended up doing a deal with a kid for a nice mk2 golf Vr6. :)

    S3 looks alright; you guys are just fussy. Who gives a **** is it's got 9 owners in 13 years; I see three year old cars that are on their third owner. If it's been looked after and it's a tidy car, who gives a **** how many owners it's had? It's a 13 year old performance (lol) car, lighten up.

    lol Jardo I said Silver not Blue :haha: I did love that car right little pocket rocket in its day, and loved the fact it was a limited 1 of only 50 Moondust Silver ever made. I kept it till the death and broke it when the engine popped.

    Ahhh, a bloke at work bought that one from a guy in the midlands. There can't have been many with the same spec in that area :)

    Yeah, they are properly good. A bloke from work's also got a VERY tidy escort RST. They bum about together and go to Ford Fair and all that jazz.

    lol I used to go to the odd Ford fair the escorts are pretty rare too now most nailed and rotten, the tidy ones are worth a small fortune. There's a guy not far from me who bought a Escort Cossie in blue brand new totally standard only had it for about 2 weeks then spent a good few grand tuning it into a right monster, he still has the origional set of wheels and tyres it came with hardly any wear lol.
