    Bought, mods please delete. WTB: 2018/2019 MK7.5 AB or SE w/ experience DSG

    Georgia is close enough to me to drive back. Congrats! What color is it? The ones I saw at dealers in Georgia were overpriced I'm surprised I missed this one. Was it red or white/white silver? Maybe that's why I didn't see it lol.

    Only a 2018 SE is likely to be within your budget from what I've seen lately. Maybe it will be a bit easier in Arkansas but around here that's the case . Even that will be hard to find.

    WTB 2018 GTI Autobahn in or around the Tristate

    There's a stage 2 Autobahn with dsg at paddock Chevrolet in Buffalo for under $23k. I was going to buy it but I think I'm going to stay stock this time.

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    Pretty much exactly how I feel. But the more I think about it the more I think I just want a stock car to not think about for a while until the next time I get the itch to change cars.

    Just for anyone interested, here is the car. Putting the pieces together here's what I've learned - The car was purchased in the summer of 2019 as a leftover 2018. In the fall of'19 the previous owner took the car to boosted creations in NY and all at once did a stage 2 tune (high torque) and a...

    Thanks everyone for the insight. As someone mentioned, the low price is probably the biggest red flag. I think the dealer knows something is up because a 2018 Autobahn asking under $23k without crazy reconditioning or doc fees seems way cheaper than the market. I'm going to pass on the car...

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    I somewhat agree. I do think the price is low enough (from a dealer, no less) that there is something going on. But it's a large reputable dealer (Chevy dealer) so maybe someone just traded it in. It's in Buffalo, ny if anyone wants to look at the car. 2018 Autobahn with dsg asking just under...

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    I plan on doing a stage 1 apr tune anyway, and it's a dsg and still under a lot of warranty. In general I totally agree with you and this car in particular looks like it may have been driven hard. If it was local I would feel much better but it's several hundred miles away. You're probably...

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    Yeah I'm a bit concerned. It's a solid deal and it has an apr bumper badge so if it's just a stage 1 with neuspeed intake, not bad. I just want the car for 2 years or so and I'll sell it and my local dealer is fairly mod friendly so I'll consider it.

    Dealer has no idea. I'm sending the vin to apr to check.

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    Haha yes. My question was really if there are other signs of mods more serious than just an intake that you can see from the top of the motor. Like maybe a certain intake is used for stage 3 only, etc. I've only just started looking at these cars so I'm not sure what to look for.

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    Thanks. Yeah I wasn't sure if there's was some telltale mod that goes with the swap. What's with the little breather filter next to the intake? Most likely it's apr stage 1 or 2 max.

    Can you tell if the turbo has been swapped from these pictures?

    Considering a car out of state and got these pictures. The car has an apr badge on the back. I'm trying to see if the car is beyond stage 1 and an intake. Can anyone tell from these pictures? I guess next step will be asking apr.
