    Does look good mate
    But not what your after!
    Big turbo version
    Sure you will end up spending plenty to get it up to 325bhp.
    Yellow tends to go cheaper as not many people want that colour
    good luck anyway

    mate i think for what it has on there its not worth 5K or just under maybe 4k will be more reasonable S3feats just sold his S3 and it had a brand new spankin engine and he sold it for less then that i think

    sounds fair enough mate... but i would get it checked... and before getting it mapped check for vaccum leaks, split hoses etc... give it a good service and the sort all these bits and bobs and check for faults before thinking about mapping matey. how much does he want for the noggy s3 ?

    It does look nice mate but that noise under the bonnet could be anything if he is saying in the ad he does not know what it is I wouldn't take the risk, maybe aleast take someone who knows about these cars to look at the problem, you got to think why is the person selling the car and why the problem has not been sorted it's had enough spent in it already by the looks of things

    Good luck
