Customer Question

Hi I'm looking at a 2011 hatch etc sti 330s with 27000 on the clock but I'm worried with what I have heard with piston ring failure should I be concerned as I've checked the service history and is up to date, thanks craig

the ring land issue I say has been a bit over-reported as the instance of failures and returns are about 1-3% and mostly the pre 2008 update cars

so I wouldn't worry about a 2011 car with a full history

if it had been modified then thats another story
