VEHICLE STORY

After losing my Mk7 Golf R, I decided I wanted another AWD MQB car so replaced my Mk7 GTI with this 2015 A3 2.0t Quattro. I ideally wanted another Golf R but alas they were more than I wanted to spend at the time. This A3 was very clean and low miles for significantly under $25k. It is a fully loaded Premium Plus model with Sport Package, Drivers Assistance Package, MMI Nav, Bang&Olufsen, and 19s totaling nearly $44k MSRP when new.. This made the most sense to buy in order to get back into an AWD MQB VAG vehicle. For those who don't know, this car shares the same engine/turbo set up as the Mk7 GTI but is paired with a Haldex AWD system. This is same system as the Golf R and Audi S3. This is my project for the next few years. It has now been modified to a point that it's faster than a stock Audi S3. The build goal here is to make the car as good or better than a tuned S3. At this point I don't have any other plans power wise for the car. I plan to replace it with another Golf R sometime in 2020.
