S3 Turbo Esprit QLD
from the UK in 98, having spent 3 years under cover in Germany.
This car starts first turn of the key, although not driven, its
regulary started, the car is totally straight, electrically and
mechanically sound and the trim is good.
The down side on this car is the paint, we paid for a good job
but the guy did not put it in the oven, it looked great when we
got it back with all new decals etc. at about 12 months later
we noticed crazing but the painter had gone with at least 5 other
unhappy customers, hence as we had done everything else we decided
not to repaint and that could be left to the new owner to do.
Due to the car being sold unregistered although it had been registered
in Qld and the condition of the paint ( the spot on the front
bumper is where just caught it with a trailer), the pricing reflects
