This Audi S3 Technik began its life in Alberta and made its way to BC just last year. It is a clean title car with no accidents or claims and had a fresh service performed in January of this year. It is equipped with the Technik package and the rarely equipped upgraded sport seats. Other options include the Advanced Handling Package with 19″ alloy wheels, the stealthy Black Optics appearance package and the optional red brake calipers.
