  • Audi S2.

    147000 Miles
    MOT expires February 2021
    A folder of receipts
    A typical late spec S2 ABY including;
    Glass Sunroof
    Heated seats
    Genuine carbon trim
    Headlining, A, B, C pillars are all black
    Air conditioning

    Modifications
    I believe the backbox is aftermarket
    TFSI coil conversion
    Boost gauge
    The car seems to peak at 1.4Bbar, so I am unsure if this is an indication of it being remapped, either way, it is a healthy car.

    Issues
    Aircon has no belt
    There is a slight blow downpipe to cats
    I do not feel that the standard brakes are fit for purpose - My old S2 had the popular 911 calliper swap and I may have been spoilt with that.
    The sunroof motor does not operate and the frame of the sunroof is corroded - previous owners have confirmed that this did not affect the operation of the roof.
    The rubber trims around the outside of the car could do with replacing.

    To note
    Surface rust on hubs and subframes (which were also replaced by one of its previous owners) - All of this is cosmetic, I have had the car vigorously poked and prodded so that I can confidently say that this is not an issue.
    The car has been owned by respected forum members for many years and recently had a documented cambelt change amongst other work by Steverrquattro, hence why it makes sense to put it up for sale on here first.

    I had this car MOT'd at the local Audi dealership, it pulled in almost every tech in that garage. The consensus was to wrap it up and stash it away, I was really happy with the feedback I got there. Even had one of the engineers offer me some cash and his really nice 2008 S3!

    I am using this car as a daily at the moment as COVID has delayed my lease car. It does not miss a beat, great on fuel, sounds glorious, heads are always turning and comments are always positive.

    So why am I selling it?
    It needs minimal work to achieve perfection if this is this even possible with an S2?

    It has been 5-6 years since I last owned one of these and parts were very easy to get hold of and now everything feels like a treasure hunt! When you do find what your after - prices are astronomical. I could probably deal with the scene taxed parts if they were readily available but this is not the case. This has spoilt my experience this time around and I think its time to move on to something more modern.

    I want £12k for the car and would not entertain any offers. The intention is to just get through the very issues it has remaining while it is still mine. As a less spec with just under 100k miles recently flew on eBay for £21,000, I am not in a rush to lower my price.

    Thanks

    Alex

        I am already regretting it mate, but I have spent too long thinking about it - so I figure I am doing the right thing.

Mines defo a keeper the attention my car gets and you'll be the same is just unreal! Don't do it!!

                  Just added a few pictures at work today, albeit a bit dirty from last nights rain. I don't ever remember my old ABY being this good on fuel!

                  Still, just a cheeky bump to show its in daily use and not missing a beat!

                  Ps. Check the gallery link in the first post! *ThumbsUp

                    So I am going to completely eat my own words here as I have an opportunity to pick up a car that I have always wanted at a price I can not pass on.

                    I am open to very sensible offers on the asking price.

                    I have forgotten to mention that the car came to me with a spare set of catalytic converters and a set of original S2 alloys with legal tires.

                    Thanks!
