2016 Audi S3. Only 5,300 miles!

There was a Warranty issue with the 2015 S3 so the dealer bought it back and hooked me up with a newer one with less miles for FREE. No additional costs at all!

All the info on the crazy situation that happened can be seen in this thread here http://www.thechicagogarage.com/forum/automotive-discussions/159474-sold-car-cpo-warranty-now-they-called-back-said-cpo-void.html

Lots of detail there on every page. Follow the journey if you didn't see it yet!


This car has all the same options minus the red seats. It does have the black optics package which blacks out the front grill front fog light grilles and window surrounds. Looks slick. A hell of an upgrade for $0 out of pocket.

Will be removing the front plate today. Hidden mount. No holes! Going to look sweet.

Worded it wrong. The mount for the current plate is behind the grill. If you take it off it is as if there was never a plate there. No ugly holes in a bumper or anything. Literally detaches. Poof. No more front bracket.

Who is going to tell your daughter that society does not value her as much as they do a man?

Love that color. Now go get it tuned and void your warranty.

Exhaust tips were downright nasty as you can see here. Just caked on carbon buildup. Mostly on the inner tips, I assume this has a valved exhaust at WOT or something like that.



So I went to town with aluminum foil and water and elbow geese. Finished up with NEVER dull. Would like to do it again in a few weeks as it started to rain.









All done.



Very happy with how they turned out.

Some tinted window action. 15% all around and 50% front windshield. Would have liked it darker but I go to the city almost every day now. Oh well. Greg at Quality Window Tint hooked it up as usual. That TCG discount as well!
