The Beater S3 - TLC

Postby Kyle » Mon Feb 27, 2017 9:53 am

Saw this for sale and I just had to save it!

She's a bit rough with some engine issues currently, so I'll be sending her off to the TSC guys this evening for some pampering.

Not too sure what the plans are yet, just waiting to get her running properly before deciding.


She was in a sad state :(

Give me some of your 3 Audi baller money please! This is what happens when you go from petrol turbo to tdi, the craving eventually returns for a pettyturb!

Damn, she really does look rough, but she is in good hands.

Good cars these, can't wait to see where this goes. Good luck and congrats.

Yeah the craving for that petrol boost really does not subside!

Loved these cars for a while, so when this came up... Really couldn't resist.

Thanks bud, look it will never be a pristine example but I think it will clean up relatively well, it's all about saving an epic car.
