His -n- Hers S3 8L 's

Bit the bullet and got Helen's ex Noggy S3 back this morning after 7 years with another family who's had it since we last did. We spotted it a few weeks ago in Ayr parked in a driveway so we left a wee note in their letterbox stating that we had in in 2005/6 and if they decide to sell it to give us first dibs... The chap phoned me a week or so later.... They where toying with the idea to sell it.. Unfortunately the wife drove a few miles with the oil pressure light on and as a result its knackered the turbo.... a few phone calls about turbo refurbes / replacements later and me calling the owner to discuss the way ahead surprised him that I knew about it ..... cut to the chase I went to see it this morning banged out a deal then got it to my local Audi master techy who looks after our other cars told me what the situation was since the guy had called in during the week.Fortunately no other damage has been done but the turbo has had it ... So the owner drove it a mile or so with me following in my wife's imola S3, dropped it off for repairs and further investigative work then took the chap home and dealt with the paperwork ... collect in a few weeks ...





The turbo oil feed pipe got blocked this week so its buggered the turbo    so its straight into Deutche Tech for repairs and a healthy check up and service

It's now racked up 172k miles  :s3addict:  

So back in the ranks of noggy ownership.... I'm bound to get a few noggy is slowest posts up soon ... It's ok I know it is  

:thumbup:

Looks very nice, quite a little collection you're building up! I'll keep an eye out for you about town.

The S3's have a K04 as standard

Haha, finally Rich after all your Audi's you are back to the best colour.  You must have kicked yourself selling the first time.  good work and a nice (re)addition to the family. You just need a black and green one and you've got the set almost.

We didn't want to let it go in the first place Paul but at the time it sprang a few problems that was expensive to fix after getting 70k miles on it in 2 years !!!!!

Mazza ...    I  ( looks left & right ) quite like it in noggy blue & my wife as pretty pleased to see it again AND it was HER idea to leave a note asking about if they where ever selling it to get in touch !!

Anyhoo its back in the clutches of our ownership so I'll get in touch when its back on its feet  

Spotted another imola S3 on the way to seeing the noggy this morning

Do you know this car ?

Always looked at buying my MK2 Golf back but don't think I could bring myself to
S4 Muzza

As it happens i do know who owns that car, or at least i know his brother. Think their dad owns a car dealership or something. I bet the reg plate is worth a few bob!

I posted a spotted thread on audi-sport .net thought it maybe someone on there but no comments back yet.

Say hello when your in touch with him / his  brother please

You should look forward to plenty of frost up your way around your Noggy rings now

Noggymike...












Ratflmao    I'll still be cracking the jokes about being the slowest colour.. in our collection this returned noggy has the least power except the Ur but I bet there ain't much between them through the time gates

Hello again 👍

Mazza on here said similar to you, it looked well cared for   I couldnae believe my eyes as he emerged from behind a bus on the 1 way system    
He looked just as surprised  

Good to get our blue 1 back, needs a bit of tlc and a dam good engine service which its going to get at Deutche Tech:

Replacement turbo
Timing belt & associated parts
Haldex diff is overdue so new filter & oil
air, pollen and another oil and filter change( it had 2 engine flushes and new oil and filter done last week when the turbo called time)
spark plug are 22k miles old so just throw a new set in.

Coil packs where changed free of charge last year I think , been done recently anyway.

Should get back in 2 weeks depending how long it takes to deal with the turbo whether its save able or shagged beyond repairing it. (Won't know until the casing is pressure tested )

Current owner is Sam Kerr i believe, as i said though i don't know him, only his brother.
