On this car , the speedo is on the right , tacho on left . Mine , a LHD coming from USA , the speedo is on the left which means the speedo transmission has a very tortuous way under the dashboard , and it is a little bit short to find its way to the gearbox , so it works with naughty curves . What is the correct position ? On the driver handbook , the speedo is on the left . I think it should have been better on the right because the transmission should have been in line with the hole in the body to go in the engine bay . I am tented to change this , but it is not an easy job , like everything on this car .

as an S3, which it is, it should get a better price ---- its the rear triumph lights, which make the difference. any potential buyer ill also know the rear of an S4 greetings from the cold autumn in the alps sandy

$22,000. That seems like a great price!

That car was a steal. The auction could have benefited from more comprehensive pictures and video.

I wonder why the radiator was a smaller, later unit.
