At last, a reliable Series 3 - it is great!
Bought sight unseen - when on business trip. Wired the money by internet. Picked up the following week.
$15 paint and $5 for 4 paintbrushes - changed the colour to pillarbox red in 2 days over CNY.
$300 gave it a new fabric roof.
$280 for a full service and break overhaul.
Running very well with jumbo wheels of chrome.
Finally found out to start the glow plugs so excellent starter now.
Steering a bit vague - but better than most S3s.
Car is very entertaining. Reliable for its age.
Exceptionally cost efficient due to expected $1 COE.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
