Work Completed: Tiptronic transmission oil changed and filter replaced to sort out slipping first gear in automatic mode, all four brake discs skimmed with on-car brake lathe and brake pads replaced, both catalytic converters replaced with aftermarket units due to rusted and rattling heat shields, exhaust back box changed with a stainless steel aftermarket unit, headlights and taillights replaced with clear lens lights from a 2003 model, both leather seats refurbished with Alcantara inserts, all four wheels refurbished and painted black.
Notes: Found on an Internet forum originally being sold for parts. Car was mothballed for four years due to a transmission problem and rattle in the exhaust. Sold for a £100 discount from original asking price so that the new owner could fill up the petrol tank.
