Sad to know its sold! Who is the lucky Guy who picked it up!

Anywayz its not worth buying a car like that! The engine would have been tortured with that turbo!

P.S what about the 220bhp RS! Is that sold to?

Thumbs up

Hey Busa,

You guessed right. But the engine is not fried, however there will be some problems in the very near future with the block as all his internals are stock.

I have driven the car and know of the problem which is not very major thankfully. The person who bought it has a very good deal.

Last time i saw the car was a couple of days ago.
I used to see it recently on the way back from school.
Wondered where it had disappeared too.
But the surprising part.
IT WAS ALWAYS DRIVEN BY THE DRIVER.

Details of the Chipped RS are on the ACI site - www.autocarindia.com
Go to buying used cars and check it out.
It is silver.
