    THIS EXAMPLE WAS MODIFIED FROM NEW AT A COST OF AROUND Ł60000 INCLUDING THE CAR.

    I wonder if this car is still running the standard intercoolers?

    The above is not a Haldex performance controller, it's just a wired switch that you flick on to lock the haldex fully so you get fulltime 4wd.

    As said over priced. Dont see why buy it new and mod it straight away for the price they paid for it all.
    MTM work does seem to be very pricey for what they do. Would of liked to see some photos of the engine bay.
    Looks like an nice S3 mind

    When you first look at it and read the spec it sounds really good but think of all the things that could go wrong with it and if it all cost Ł60k for the parts its gonna hurt your wallet when something does go wrong!!!

    How much was a 8L S3 when new?
    I only know personaly of 1 MTM tuned S3 and every bit they added that breaks ( as things do ) cost the bloody earth !
    As said, how come no pictures or the engine? this is ment to be where a large part of the money has ment to have gone.
    The brakes ... good yes but stupidly priced for discs and pads when they are needed. One of many things that would quickly empty the bank AFTER th Ł10k wanted to actualy get the car

    I do wonder where the Ł60k has gone towards, but of a free plug for qst below, the conversion itself is Ł6850+vat. Car is let's say Ł30k, so that's another Ł20kodd towards wheels brakes and suspension?

    One of my previous S3s was the same level of tuning as this.

    Very fast for what it was, but dont think quite 350 bhp, 300-320 more likely, I probably think he is referring to the B5 RS4, my RS4 far from standard and Ive never driven a standard one so wouldnt be able to comment on that!

    However my old S3 with the MTM tuning was a very very fun car .....How ever not a big fan of their maps...

    This is my old car I just traded it for a b5 rs4.
    Car is as advertised.its perfect! I'm a professional mechanic and ive spent alot of money to get it into the condition it's in now.I am very good friends with the man who bought this car brand new and built it.
    I have dyno plots for when it was custom mapped it made 341bhp.I'm happy to answer any questions.
    Who ever buys this car will not be disappointed

    i'd be inclined to offer 9k personally.....but then toys like this are pretty much as custom as your likely to get without dropping an RS4 lump in....so the term 'worth what someone will pay' couldn't be more appropriate

    Never said I bought it off the man who built it.Learn how to read
    Milage tends add to wear.in the 2 years I had the car I got the front resprayed due to stone chips.replace the clutch and flywheel and replace most of the rubber bushings.put new brakes on ect

    Hi Alan, just one question really, is there's seriously Ł60k worth of built car there? I mean I know it's not you selling it, but totalling up the bills over the years doesn't count, I'd expect more like 500bhp if I spent Ł60k on an S3.

    Yes, apologies on my part, I know the Ł60k is including the car, lets call the car Ł30k or Ł35k max with every possible optional extra(except custom colour), so throwing Ł25k on top, I expect 500bhp from my 1.8T. Do you think or know if there's Ł25k worth of tuning on the car?

    Just to clarify, I'm just curious, and intrigued to know if it's justified by the seller to say the following in his ad.
    THIS EXAMPLE WAS MODIFIED FROM NEW AT A COST OF AROUND Ł60000 INCLUDING THE CAR.
    I also don't blame the seller for advertising it for Ł10k+, if someone haggles and gets a reasonable good deal out of it, both parties a winner!
