RS3 Buy Advice, engine idle noise (video)


Registered User
Hi guys,

I sold my 8V S3 and am currently looking for an RS3 8P in The Netherlands. There is one for sale right across the border. It has full Audi service history and maintenance was done according to schedule. The car looks well maintained from the outside judging from pictures and a video.

Car has done 106.000 km and according to the owner fully original except for the navigation system.

however, the engine bay idle sound is a bit loud. He made a video, what do you guys think?

Another option is an Audi TTRS manual but it was not maintained by an Audi dealer. Is tuned stage 1, so not the first choice. Also heard some bad stories about the first gen manuals.
