Service History









If you’re a performance junkie looking for the ultimate white-knuckle ride, but still need to crush the daily commute or school run in comfort and style, then this retina-searing Ara Blue Audi RS3 Sportback won’t fail to impress. As one of the last non-OPF DAZA-engined variants of Audi’s storming hot hatch, it left the factory with £10,850 worth of Factory Optional Extras, but that represents merely the tip of the iceberg for this professionally tuned example.


Featuring over £14,000 worth of modifications from renowned UK-Based VAG tuning house MRC Tuning, including a conversion to stage 3 specification with switchable maps, meaning you can change the power output within seconds, between an astronomical 646PS on 99RON super-unleaded petrol with octane booster to 574PS (high-torque) or 523PS (low-torque) on 99RON super-unleaded petrol, endowing this practical hatch with the ability to complete the 0-60mph dash in under three-seconds. Reliability is key here, all map configurations have a torque cap of around 700NM, which is a safe tried and tested figure for the DAZA Audi 5-Cylinder.

This ballistic shove comes courtesy of a TTE-700 turbocharger complete with supporting modifications of an uprated Forge intercooler, enlarged injectors and a £2,500 Eventuri carbon-fibre induction kit with turbo inlet elbow. This latter upgrade combines with the BCS hi-flow downpipe and RS Sports exhaust system to not only release the maximum power potential of the motor, but also endow it with a suitably steroidal soundtrack to match, which can be heard on our walkaround video. Elsewhere, £1,250 has been invested into 2-piece floating front discs with Ferodo Racing Pads to significantly increase stopping power.

This RS was sourced through the Audi RS-OC Owners Club which we help moderate. Its previous keeper bought this RS3 bone stock and invested heavily to its current stage 3 specification in his ownership. All modifications and services are backed up with receipts and healthchecks for complete piece of mind to any perspective buyers, we can assure you this car lives up to its incredible specification, and is in simply sublime condition to boot with only 24,300 Audi-Diagnostic verified miles from new and a verified launch count of 2 (YES-TWO) since new.

As with all car’s sold by us, this impressive machine has received an additional 40 hours of meticulous preparation from our in-house professional detailers including multi-stage paint correction to ensure an unparalleled finish. Add to this the comprehensive and pedantic service history from the two previous RS enthusiast owners, underpinned by Automotive Addiction’s own hassle-free three-month warranty, and you can rest assured that not only the car itself, but all £14k worth of modifications, are running at peak performance and will offer a faultless driving and ownership experience for many years to come.

Our painstaking inspection process has revealed no instances of non-factory paintwork, so you can buy in confidence that this most searing of hot-hatches has led a life free of damage and is in simply impeccable condition both inside and out.

This lust-worthy list of aftermarket upgrades comes on top of a similarly impressive catalogue of factory fitted options totaling almost £11,000 too, including the Matrix LED headlights, Carbon-fibre interior inlays, SuperSport seats, Extended leather package and high-fidelity Bang & Olufsen sound system, making this particular example even more desirable as a result.

Please watch our walkaround video, which includes more information on this RS3’s highlight features including how it sounds. Contact us without delay if you wish to discuss this vehicle or secure it with a deposit.
