You should have bought the silver 57 plate s3 from redline instead lol, was my old car with a GIAC remap and h and r springs, 39k on the clock with heaps of history and a stack of warranty work done by the dealer. Seems a lot for a car with 70k and sh1t wheels.
**** piccy of mine on the dealers site that i have just sold the car to.
it was more for the benefit of others than myself, ive had my remapped s3 for ages now and it hasnt put a foot wrong. A few guys think that becuase the k20 lump is so strong that if they cant get the same gains it cant be true.
Just wondering how many (i know a fair few are running fuel pump,tbe,intake and software upgrades) are doing this and how reliable its been. Having a little debate on CTRO and they find it hard to believe that the engine will run a reliable 360 bhp with no internal upgrades. Im aware the clutch...
It may not be what your after but i will have my 2007/57 s3 for sale.
38k FSH (JUST HAD CAMBELT UNDER WARRANTY) Recently serviced with new plugs and brake fluid
flat bottom wheel
i pod dock in glovebox
As always received excellent service from these guys. My glovebox lid broke - replaced free, creaking door surround - new sill free, cambelt squeeking on start - replaced free.
Car is on 38k aswell !!!!! Happy days is im putting it up for sale so should give the owner peace of mind.
i think we all expect a little much from the s3, as a few people have said its mainly down to the tyres (your only as good as your contact patch in the snow)
Also as the Haldex isnt a true 4wd in normal driving ie no wheel slip then its as good as a fwd car.
Also being a relatively sporty car...
I would personally keep the 135i and take it to DMS. As much as i love the s3 and its useability the 135i is a bit rarer.
How often do we have snow in this country? Not often yet it amazes me how when the weather is a bit bad people start looking at range rovers etc etc.
Both cars will be...
