    Morning guys, looking at a misano red RS3. Reading about I'm seeing a lot about some press cars and one in particular that was badly damaged. The one I'm looking at is a similar reg, OY11 HVO . Anyone have any info on this car? Thanks in advance

    Some info on OY11 HVO, Simon:

    Registration date: 25 May 2011 - so one of the first here in the UK and yes most likely a dealer demonstrator but with good history

    8P RS3's started to appear here in the UK around May 2011 with saleable ones available shortly after - see #674 West Yorks (July) and #687 Edinburgh (July) in the following thread. My own Cornflower blue RS3 was first spotted and photographed (pre-registration) on September 12th; see:

    THANKS to Bagey who thought it was 'purple' and does sometimes appear so...

    Further details for OY11 HVO:

    Some people avoid Press Cars and Dealer Demonstrators in the first few years of it's life due to the nature of it use but think 8 years after new any problems would have surfaced by now and good service history probably better purchase than some of the Cars with 2-3 Owners that have dubious history up for Sale at the moment I have a White Press Car OV11 HVJ Owned for just under a year with no major problems (Touch Wood) Red Press Car That Audi washed there hands of (withdrew warranty from it after about 12 Months) Was OV11 HVM

    Press Cars are often loaded with more options so another positive

    Definitely, this one has a good spec sheet.

    Do you have any articles featuring your car
