Price check on s3 8L (Updated after test drive)
« on: January 29, 2017, 07:37:56 pm »
Just wondering market price for a 2001 8L s3 with 170k kms, rebuilt engine. Everything else is great condition.

Update*
Found oil leak right front bottom, CV joint needs reppacing, cambelt was done in early 2012, done only 40k km. Rebuilt was because of a blown engine part after current owner bought it in 2012. Body condition is average to below for age.... Small rust spots on the roof and possibly else where.
It drove well but the oil leak is a concern especially after a tune mid 2015 and the tuners never mentioned it maybe its new caused by the tune. The engine warning light is on but no codes have been checked for yet.

Delima, I do like it but its probably going to cost me another $3-4k of unknown problems minimum.

Probably around $8k to the right buyer.

$6-7k. Has it had a new clutch and flywheel? If not budget on at least $2500 for that.

Around 8-8.5k wow that's not cheap..... The rebuild was about 6-7 years ago though.

Was this the black one with the rebuilt motor, forged internals and new turbo? Was watching that and gutted it expired / probably sold quickly
