UrS4 - Now missing its engine ????

Hi all ..

Has anybody got numbers on how many UrS4s were imported to the UK ??
I need to show how rare my avant was !!!!
Im in the middle of a nightmare situation at the moment ..

My S4 was in at a well known local Audi tuners to have a bottom end fitted .. The top end was GOOD as it had had an RS2 head and turbo fitted , along with lots of polishing and chroming ??
Had the rocker cover polished and she looked amazing !


Anyway to cut a VERY long story short .. They "lost or scrapped " my engine before it was refitted ??? They dont know where it went?? And now wont answer my calls or emails ??

So now my S4 is sitting in a yard with no engine ( GUTTED does not come close  ) .. Ive had quotes to replace just a standard engine and its not coming close to what I spent on my car before this ..

So after trying many many times to get them to sort it from there end , Ive now decided to go down the legal route .. I need as much info as poss to show that my car is not just an Audi 100 Avant ..

Cheers all ... Mike --http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/AudiS4Nutz

That's shocking - if and when legally appropriate, sounds like a name 'n shame is in order.

If you haven't already, probably worth a post on S2Forum, plenty of urS4 enthusiasts on there.

Unbelievable, cant help but good luck with sorting this out and when appropriate definitely name and shame these totally unprofessional idiots!

i can get some numbers for you at the weekend, mean while there was 36 auto S4's imported.

I have one:)

is yours a '93 or '94  year model?
bluebrakes

That's terrible.
Surely they don't deal with that many cars to loose track of an engine?! Its not like loosing a nut or radio unit. It takes a trolley or a few people to move an engine about.

Sounds to me this is just the tip of the ice berg.

At what point did they stop answering calls, etc?

I would call in ( if possible) and give them a written letter staing that IF your engine doesnt magically re appear SHARPISH then the police and VOSA will be paying them a wee visit    

sorry to hear of this situation..... who and where is this " Tuner"? thief more like!

did your engine have to leave thier premises once it was removed from the car?
could it be stolen to order?
plenty of 20v'ers are being sold and broken up for 20v conversions to Ur quattros, if I was you I would make a thread of this engine number and band it around the forums so people can keep a look out when buying just the engine.

good luck and keep us up to date please

Great advice.  
GolfNutz

Hi all .. Many thanks for all the thumbs ups !! Cheers ..

I was trying to keep a bit of a lid on till its sorted ..

They stopped answering my calls once I told them that I was recording all my calls ..

My solicitor has said I wont need it as its a "slam dunk" ?? His words ..

Basically they have admitted "losing" my engine , and they think it went out with the scarp !!!!! .. Its not been off there premises ..

These guys know Audis .. I mean REALLY know Audis ..

An very shinny S4 engine sat on a trolley should not disappear  

At first they said they would sort me another engine to the same spec ..
Then one of the partners said they had talked to trading standards and all they had to do was give me what they got for the scrap ??

I also have talked to trading standards and it NOT what they think ...

Im in the trade myself and really anted to give them a chance to sort it out ..

But now I think that I will just walk away ..

Reg number is (was)  K 3 OLP .. But I will dig out my log book and get the engine number details sorted ..

Cheers again everyone ....
James

Check with Kim Collins.
GolfNutz

Just realised that it wont have my engine number on it !!
It had the bottom end that they had supplied already fitted .. So I dont think they will be giving me the engine number ...
It was all rebuilt ready to be put back in ! They just never got round to it ??????
quattrokid

the engine number will be on your V5 docs.... or the engine REGISTERED to that car will be on the docs.

SO come on.... who has f***ed up?

how can they say that " we think" its gone out in the scrap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  a shiney engine sat on a trolley/ pallet simply just doesnt dissapear .... do you have any CCTV coverage?

sounds a bit dubios to me T.B.O

ANY RECIEPTS you have of work done on your engine may have its number on it. When I take cars to a dealer for work it has the engine number, chassis number on it.

have a look at your docs and see what you find. W e can perhaps help you if you give us a few clues to go on.... OR CERTAINLY get tuning specialists/ breakers on the scent for you.

Worth a try?
Parptoot

This all smells fishier than a fishy thing at a very smelly fish market.

Come on, please tell us who it was
DavidT

Posting sketchy details on an internet forum does not seem like an obvious way to 'keep a lid on it' to me ...
James

He did not say that David. He said "to keep a bit of a lid"
GolfNutz

Hi All ..
Sorry about the above .

Yes , I think Ive said too much too soon ..
It just winds me up some nights .

Ive found this group while trying to get the figures to show that my car isnt just another K reg Audi 100 ???

Ive posted on other threads , not just my moaning one    

So I will try to keep quiet till its sorted out ..

Cheers again .. Mike ..
DavidT

I'm not saying you shouldn't post, it's upto you
quattrokid

any news about this situation?
GolfNutz

Nothing yet ...

Will get back on the solicitors case tomorrow ..

As Jim Royle would say 'Lost it my arse'

Sounds to me as though they sold the bits from your engine, it would have made a nice amount of money that lot!

Gutted for you mate but i admire how calm your are about this!

Is this garage Q*******ics by any chance ?
Jamo

Is this Qua**ronics? Can you please elaborate as there have been a lot of high profile cases on S2forum if you care to join, a lot of members have taken legal dealings against said owner.
Corey

Nope not us, sorry to dissappoint.
Paz

Well it has to be said Corey (Quattronics), you are guaranteed to disappoint!!

bluebrakes

hmm... popular guy.  
Acidburn

as much as people was expecting this to be corey and it wasn't i'd still like to know what garage it was taken to just so that none of mine end up there.

@original poster - anymore info on this, have you heard anymore from the company?

I know the urs4's are getting rare, last I heard from a thread on classic audi they was something like 300 in the country. I have one and know of a few being stripped recently so are getting rarer, hopefully at one point the price for them will rise. Rarer than an s2 coupe now (avants are getting scarce in one piece less than 150 on the road lst i heard)

Just because he said its not him, that doesnt mean a single thing does it

In this instance its not him so think its best if we stay on topic and help this guy out with ideas/ways he can go about sorting out what has happened.
GolfNutz

Hi all ...

Still waiting on advice from my solicitor

But would like to say its NOT Quattronics

Whatever these guys have done they don't need my hassles putting on top of them as well ...

I should be SORTING this out .. But got some family probs at the mo ..

Still, big cajones for admitting to it.

spink

been a while now,did you get anything done about this?
GolfNutz

Good news !!!!!!

I didnt get my engine back  
But we sat down and had a good sort out . AND the guys came up trumps and got me another S4  
Its a nice car .. But came with no MOT or anything , but hey ! ..

All done now .. Moted and driving an UrS4 again  ..

But she looks a little poorly now ? While it was having some jobs done for the MOT at my mates place it was slid into a post on the sheet ice !
But thats not too bad .. Ive got the old S4 to take bumpers off ..
Then before it could be taken to the bodyshop for repair a truck drove into the side of it and drove off without saying anything .. No one at the garage saw anything and didnt even know till the body shop lad asked if they had the doors to fit it as well as the back bumper ...

I dont think Im meant to have a car ????


So the old S4 is up for breaking now as its been sat for so long I dont think it would be worth sourcing an engine for it .. Especially with my luck ...
frazered

well good to hear you have some recompense
mikeyquattro

You're not having much luck are you!

Glad you got something back, shame it's been battered!
GolfNutz
