Hi, so iv recently joined the forums after i decided i HAD to buy an S3 for my next car, after intensive looking and some research its now time to buy in the next week or so. My thoughts on the matter, i MUST buy the 210bhp version as its FAR cheaper on the insurance than the 225 for my age (22) modded or stock. With that in mind i have seen an S3 150k miles, modified to 280bhp with induction, exhaust and dumpvalve already for 3k. My worries are LINK TO CAR HERE 1. mods fitted poorly? 2. alot of wear for the standard engine parts on a higher torque? 3. just general been mistreaten in driving. OR do i try to buy a stock S3 with FULL service history? Is FSH really the overall decision maker? (then possibly just throw a remap on there with standard induction + exhaust? thoughts?) ANY advice is truly welcome as im not a mechanic at all either and would be a great help making a correct decision on something that will last me for a while. Thanks!
