Alright everyone. I'm new to this forum...I've been looking for an Audi S3 for ages now and finally decided last week to make the plunge and travel to the UK for one. There much more expensive to buy in Ireland due to Registration taxes etc...I checked all the usual sites and found a 51 plate silver one in Liverpool with slightly high miles at 106k but I didn't mind as it said it had FSH and I don't do much mileage anyway!! I phoned the guy a couple of times with questions as I didn't have the luxury of just driving to see it and then decide it wasn't what I wanted.... He told me the car was in perfect condition and needed nothing doin to it. So I organised the flights and myself and my brother got the early flight from Dublin money in hand!! We had organised to meet this guy at 10am but his phone was powered off until 1pm. I thought this lad is taking me for a mug.... Then he arrives in the car. The passenger mirror glass is smashed and there is broken glass on the passenger floor which he explains happened the previous day by some 'scumbags', Yea right!! Then he takes us for a drive... Oh my God this guy is a maniac he's changing gears like he's trying to impress me by driving the car to death!!! Eventually when I get to drive it I realise the clutch is almost shot, The light for the brakes is on the dash which he says is a simple sensor fault!! as if he knew, There was only a small bit of service history!! When i checked the engine there was all gunge under the oil cap which I'm told is the head gasket!! What an Idiot... I've bought nearly all my cars in the UK and always found the sellers very honest as they knew how far I was travelling and would tell me of the smallest problems....So in the end I just laughed and walked away What else could I do!! So frustrating...GRRRRRRR. Sorry just had to get it off my chest!!
