    My £300 172k miles A3 8L project!!

    So i saw this car up forsale £300,i had to have it with 1 months mot and tax! Having been a vauxhall guru too heart from day 1,i have owned a couple of mk3 golf gti's,i finally settled on this A3 to keep,i will simply never sell it!

    AGU engine,pipercross induction kit,lowered 40mm,matte black alloys,sony cd player with upgraded door speakers as it sits,bottom of the doors is the ONLY place this car has rust it is just unbelieveable,it had a knock at the front end...2track rod ends later,fixed!

    now for the plans.............. toyosports front mount intercooler
    put my porsche d90's back on when complete!
    new bilstein lowering kit
    polybushes
    respray(paint arrived this morning,custom mix 'baby blue' with a pearl tint)
    rollcage
    2bucket seats
    head work
    ko3s turbo
    turbo back exhaust
    wind deflectors

    not alot else,gorgeous car as it is,loads of standard parts to be replaced,wishbones,new headlights etc.....

    here is the car when i bough it..............

    here is the car today..................


    It will be going back on the road after winter!!!!!!! updates to follow :D

    Hi you got that for a good price.
    Upgrades sound okay but why oh why are you changing the colour though I would embrace the gold
    Get some of these on it make it different from the rest

    glad I'm not the only one strugglinh to understand or follow the logic of this thread.. you bought a £300 car - write a post about your intended project and then less than 24 hours later mention circumstances have changed and it's now up for sale?? - from the outside looking in - alarm bells would be ringing that there is potentially some major issue with the car that you've maybe just discovered? is it two cars welded together?, stolen? expensive fault or repair?...



    * 2013 BMW 116d M Sport: current
    * 2002 Audi A3 1.8T Sport (8L): current
    * 2003 Mercedes Benz C200K Avantgarde SE (W203): current
    * 1998 BMW Z3 2.8 Roadster (E36/7): now sold
    * 1998 BMW 316i Compact (E36): now crushed!!
