The Audi S3 is a good car, but the new car is more expensive.We use an auto paint thickness gauge to evaluate used cars and determine whether there has been an accident through the paint thickness.

     The Audi S3 is a good-performing car that is loved by passionate young people.Appearance of the "S" type mark is reflected in the front of the car.The characteristic design is that the four exhaust pipes can indirectly inform the following vehicles of danger if they follow too close.And the car's personality painting can be clearly distinguished from the color of the Audi A3.The space design of the Audi S3 is quite satisfactory and the suspension design of the sport adjustment strongly intensifies the“road feeling”into the experience of the rear seat ride.With regard to these superior designs,I believe that many car owners want to own one.But the price of a new Audi S3 is around 36-380,000 RMB,but a good-cost second-hand car is also a good choice. And we usually use the auto paint thickness gauge to evaluate the price of used cars.

     The following figure shows the paint surface thickness at 17 positions of the Audi S3 body by using the Linshang auto paint thickness gauge.The car paint surface thickness is measured to determine whether the vehicle is an accident car.The positions are: roof,engine compartment cover,left front fender,left A-pillar,left front door,left B-pillar,left rear door,left C-pillar, left rear fender, trunk lid, right rear wing Plate, right C-pillar, right rear door, right B-pillar,right front door,right A-pillar,right front fender.These 17 locations are all over the car.After measuring the paint thickness of these 17 positions,we can evaluate the value of this used Audi S3.

   17.The Audi S3 right front fender paint surface thickness values are:
115, 114, 117, 122, 126, 123, 120, 120, average: 119.6, minimum: 114, maximum: 126.
     We generally judge whether the vehicle has been repaired,mainly by comparing the measured film thickness with the original paint of the car.Generally,the probability of an accident on the roof is small,so the measured paint thickness are compared with the data on the roof. Measurement data exceeding 10-40 μm are normal values.When measuring the value,pay attention to the uniform distribution position and measure the average value of each position 3-5 times, so that the measured data is more accurate.
     From the test report of the Audi S3,the paint surface thickness of the car body is relatively uniform.Judging from the paint surface thickness,the Audi S3 may not have had a major accident.If the service life is not long,it is more cost-effective to buy this Audi S3.
     It can be seen from the above measurement examples that the auto paint thickness gauge can help the used car dealer to find the repair position and repair degree of the car paint surface.So they can judge the value of the car.
