    B8's H&R's etc - What are they worth?

    As it seems as im going to have to drop the price of my S3 to under 6k to generate some interest I thought I would stick the standard suspension back on recoup some lost cash

    Anyway, what do you think this lot would be worth.

    Bilstein B8's
    H&R -25mm Springs
    KW Adj Tie Bars
    H&R 10mm / 15mm Spacers?

    All fitted in May this year.

    I'd say probably about 400 maybe more but probably would cost the same amount to get yours back to standard. Stike up a deal with someone to swap all yours back to Standard. I've just taken a deposit for my motor in its current modded state. Only got 9k for it. The lads got a bargain in my eyes and I was half tempted to keep it for that money

    Couple of thousand mate.

    Only fitted in May this year.

    I'd rather sell the lot as a set though tbh.

    You will need the tie bars anyway !

    I'm still asking myself the question!! I've had it for 18 months and its getttng a few miles on it. I bought it with 36k and now just creeping up to 60k so I think its time for a change whilst its still under average mileage. Plus I've had payrise from work which helps to afford a newer car. I was half tempted to buy a new shape S3 until I realised they were 30k once specced up so decided to go back to the devils juice (diesel) and the only engine that would make me smile after the S3 happens to belong to BMW.

    Yeah looking to get a 330CD. Looking to get it remapped as it will be pretty slow in standard form. I'm not looking for something ubber fast as I'll lose my license. Thats one reason why I'm getting rid of the Audi

    7.2 secs 0-60 but once remaped it should be low 6's. The mid range where it all counts should be interesting!

    lol. AKY - I had to laugh when I read the comment about selling the audi so it won't cost you your license.

    I'm selling my S3 cause it has cost me my license. Well I can't totally blame the car but it's easier.

    9K is good with the current market. sadly I don't think i'll see the same figure.
    Gone but not forgotten - Silver 2001 210BHP AMK, Black/blue interior, no silver/alloy mirrors, Brembo brakes, Standard LCR disc and DS2000 pads, Bilstein B8 shocks with H&R Springs.
    Present - VW 1.9TDI Passat SE
    To come - A3 Sportback BE 2.0TDI 140

    Ouch - I've been stopped a few times. Gutted for you mate.

    Scott the Blue Vectra collared me the other day coming down the bypass. He must have had to be doing 120+ coming into bingley as he only caught me coming off the slip road and by that time I was doing 50mph. luckily for me he didn't manage to clock me!

    How much will it cost to put back to Standard Ian? I bet it would be about 500 (unless you can do it yourself) Surely you'd be better off reducing the car by say 250
