    There is a black S3 in cheltenham with a private S3 XXX plate (can't remember the full reg), it looks to be an MTM convo and sits on MTM Bitmoto's...

    Its the same build I have gone for in my A4 except I stroked mine to 2008cc, have a Tial Exhaust housing and tubular exhaust manifold.
    2.0+l 20v stroker build thread (GT2871)
    I am aiming for 200+bhp at 4000rpm and just shy of 400bhp on around 20psi. should be nice a torquey down low but with plenty to worry the porsche owners up top.

    The 3071 vs 2817 dyno from ATP is pretty accurate if you are running sensible boost

    i've got the bigger intake mani and throttle body, so some gains to be had from that. i think bill gained 30bhp from bolting them on. if i gained 10, its a bonus. more mid range boost to come too. defo gota get along to a dyno early part of june.

    Why spend 12k on an A3. I'd have at least started with an S3!

    Or better still add another grand and buy an RS4 with 380bhp out of the box! Crazy!

    You can buy an M3 for that money too. I sold mine for 10k. Add another 5k and you can supercharge it to 400+. Thats only 3k more than the A3 with mods and far faster/better to drive!

    Cost aside, the point is that you have a car that punches well above its class and looks like any other A3 on the road.

    Granted you could spend that cash on an RS4 but the look on a scooby or evo drivers face when a lowly A3 kicks their arse... priceless!!

    Also take into account that some of the 12k spent is labour charges....

    If your going for the sleeper A3 shocker then fair enough, but the A4/Rs4 chassis is MUCH better than the A3/S3 so in a point and squirt situation the S3 is fine but on the twistys the Rs4 is in a different class.

    All these comments are irrelevant IMO.. this question shouldnt be applied to cars like this.. Its a different way of thinking, and living...

    I know a guy who's spent over 60k (over maany years of owning it, inc 3 crazy engines) on a 700bhp Escort cosworth.. the snobbish "audi" owners who are soo attached to their precious Audi brand will say "why spend that money on a ford"

    If you dont have the modifying bug, you simply cant ask that question, because its beyond your understanding.

    Anyone can go out and buy a car, how many of you asking these questions can actually say you've built your own car..

    I respect Matt, Jim, Bill, JCB, Kev etc who have actually put the hours into changing they're internals, changing turbos etc. Hopefully i'll get round to it eventually.

    Money comes and goes.. the enjoyment of rebuilding an engine, cleaning it all out, starting it up after long hours of labour.. cant put a price on it.

    On a side note, if i had 12k to spend on a car, i certainly wouldnt buy a Gay M3 lol, more common than your average ford focus.

    if i wanted a rs4, i'd have brought a rs4, same with the s3.
    i wanted a big turbo a3 quattro, a car that dont stand out when you look at it, but goes like a rocket.
    each to their own mate, i've done what i wanted, regardless of cost. i'm happy with the car, which is what matters.

    and tbh, after hearing the sob storys from my uncle, i wouldnt want a m3.

    dont get me wrong, 12k is a lot of cash, but i'm real happy with the car now, looks and drives good

    Thumbs up

    matt its your money so don't give a sh*t about people slagging it off.
    I like the 'I'd get an RS4/Evo/M3 lines" imagine the insurance/parts/running costs compared to an A3 ?

    exactly, insurance on a3 is v little compared to rs4 etc.....
    evan with mods, it stil not bank breakingly expensive.
    that 12k, includes, wheels, brembos, susspension, engine build, turbo build etc... its all parts and labour. cars built now to last me a long time.

    my uncles m3 cost a fortune to maintain and service!
