This is basically tough love, I love the car but dont want it getting destroyed by these roads any more, add to that the fact that I really dont need it and it only gets driven to keep the battery charged.

Good:
Brand new in dash single din DVD/Xvid/DivX/AVI/Mpg/Mp3/Ps2/ just about anything player.

It folds out at a touch of the button to the motorised tft touch lcd screen to navigate and watch movies, otherwise, keep it closed and it does all the same things except, well, its closed. Honestly, as soon as I installed it I hunted through the cd wallet and found a 5 year old cd with "movies" written on it and no problems just starts going, really is an amazing bit of kit. Has all sorts of rca in's and outs too, so anything like PS2, Xbox, ipod, etc would take all of 5 seconds to hook up. I also used a harness adaptor, and have the original 6 stacker (working) with the code stored in a safe place, again, just a matter of taking the underpocket out, unplugging the harness and slipping the old one in. Also plays DVD Mp3, so at the moment I have about 500cd's worth of music on one dvd. Has got a remote but the battery is flat (I assume) because its never worked from new. Pic of it open:

Pacemaker 4499 Headers (bought new), still have a receipt for these somewhere, and original headers are im sure still in the shed somewhere. I had them powder coated, but it melted and now its just like a fine white powder residue, I was really annoyed but couldnt be bothered taking them back off to get it done again. Wants oven paint.

Redback 2.5 inch cat back, 1 muffler

High flow cat, unsure of brand, but I know its definately high flow and near new

Red Momo wheel


Tickford 17's
Image



Car bra
Awesome bit of gear, embroidered with the Tickford "T" and wings, cost $500 and receipt might still be here, really awesome.

Tow pack
Ive never towed and neither did the last owner, looks pretty unused

Tinted windows.

Its been on the dyno, made around 175kw, forget the torque but was a steady curve, have a printout somewhere.

new S3 tail lights


Bad:

One 2cm long scratch on front drivers guard, I have new touch up paint, but just been too busy

Tiny bit of peeling clear paint on top of drivers door, in no way obvious, but annoying if you know its there

Wants a buff and a slight paint touchup for the few chips here and there.

In pretty good nick, pretty negotiable and would maybe look at trades for a 4wd/something interesting.

Oh yeah and also has a 12inch subwoofer and JVC amp, all boxed currently on the back seat, will be relocated when I get a chance.

Cheers mate, got me stuffed why the clear is gone in that spot, not somewhere that ever gets touched.

Ive noticed on the rear drivers guard in the last pic it looks to be really scratched. Thats not the case, theyre jsut reflections. Will trade for a manual ed or el xr8, with cash either way. Also would look at a manual el xr6, but it would have to have good options and the right mods. Will travel.

Has a stone chip in the windscreen, if theres any interest I would get that fixed. Front has a couple more chips now too. Nothing serious.
Very negotiable make an offer

Nothing. Brakes were all done when I bought it a few months ago, rarely used since then. If they were really picky they might say something about the sqeeking I mentioned but as I also said, I was told it had nolathane and Ive also been told that nolathane bushes do that. But the only thing I had to have done were brake pads and machined rotors which I still have a receipt for.

Oh actually there is one thing I just remembered. Because the extractors came so far back, we had to make the cat come back a long way aswell, on first install, it was 3mm from the chassis rail and a few cm from the gearbox and would make a loud banging noise under load hiting the chassis rail. To fix it I had to grind the flat bit off one side of the cat. When I did this, obviosely the shielding had lifted and there was a 1cm gap between the top and bottom, so to solve this problem, I clamped it together and filled the gap with gasket maker and silicone. Seems to have held up OK, still hasnt come undone yet.
