    Good spec, but it doesn't seem that cheap for it's age.

    Liking the sprint blue, usually an S3 specific colour, so maybe worth checking that it is a factory paid paint job (you can double check it from paint code on sticker in boot).

    Quattro cars are good in adverse conditions, so can understand wanting to pay a premium for one.

    Is it a 140 or 170PS engine? Check out the diesel threads on this forum for warranty work issues with looms etc. to find out if any of this work has been done.

    Are they standard wheels on that car?

    What is the paint code for sprint blue, do you know?

    The only reason i would prefer quattro is that i have a r32 at the moment and loved it during last winter, and the fact that where the misses horse is can get muddy at times.

    I did e-mail asking about service history and he said its full audi on it, not sure on which engine it is though i shall send another e-mail.

    As for the wheels im not 100% sure, my misses sportback came with the same wheels as those, if anybody could shed some light?
