I see so many A3 TDi S3 replicas on eGay that there must be some floating about. Wouldn't buy one myself as most seem to come from the West Midlands with curious history, better to DIY it on a car with clear history.
ye thats what im wanting to do to be honest, i would like to get a nice clean lowish miles a3 s line tdi 06 onwards and make it into my own. Most the replica s3 TDI's are CAT D or have alot of owners and like you say have curious history. Its a shame as some of them look really nice.
