  • Another Addition

    So here I go again, another car to add to the list I'm going to use it for a while whilst I finish the RS2

    Very understanding wife

    This car is known on the forum but I would like some more info on it if possible, fairly good paperwork trail with car

    So I collected the S2 Avant 2nd week in Jan 2021 with 12 months MOT

    List of things I've found up to now.

    O/S side repeater not working (not bulb)
    N/S door will not open
    Number plate lights not working (not bulbs) wiring top of tailgate me thinks
    Reverse light out
    Brake light out
    O/S rear brake caliper seized open
    N/S door lock inop
    Front bumper loose
    All the front slam panel loose actually 1 bolt holding it all together
    Brakes feel spongy
    LCD screen not working should get that back tomorrow

    And it passed

    Needs tidying up underneath

    But they did leave me a box of parts in the boot

    Long term project but any info would be good I've been told it has a PRJ chip in it but not sure

      Sounds like a 'paid without seen' MOT. I recognise the last part of the reg, not sure where from though.

          This was my car, the middle one of my three Avants!
          There should be info about it in my Avant thread.
          Engine was rebuilt during my ownership by Pete Berry at White Cottage after it spun a big end, had all new bearings and a hone and rings and was running spot on. At that point it needed some paint around wheel arches etc. I sold it cos I wanted to buy the blue one off my mate.

                I changed the entire cream (or grey?) coloured interior for the black leather.
                I can’t remember what chip I had in there, it took me a while to get it to boost properly and I didn’t chip it till it was running and boosting correctly on the stock chips. It should be a stage one of some sort anyway.

                  Here’s the sale thread, says PRJ chipset

                  “”Who wants to buy my S2 Avant?””
