    I would too but this car has been proven to be faster than the new V10 BMW, which has been proven quicker than a lambo gallardo! So 20k for a supercar killer isn't bad at all. Be a right pig when something goes wrong!

    I think I'd just get an RS4 and remap it. Not a fan of the front bumper either, tbh, nor the heat-shield bits around the exhausts.

    I think the front bumper had to be modiied to fit the engine in and aid cooling.

    I could get a nice 'used' E39 M5 for 20k, and I know which car I would rather have, despite the uniqueness of this S3.

    Hey guys I didn't say I'm sticking up for this car as I do think it would be a nightmare come service and insurance time but you can't deny it would be nice to have nearly 500bhp under the hood of your S.

    erm..... im thinking this is a pre facelift too

    gear knob and rear numberplate overhang suggests...... also not feeling the aftermarket steering wheel, and are those 8P upgrade seats? im not so sure, yet they do retain the original seat base from the 8L S3

    this is a special car but for me it would be 20k on the engine/running gear, everything else puts me off

    You could get an RS6 for that!! But saying that, this is a one off car (or one of a few) Just depends on what people fancy!

    Ok lads,

    I didnt think the car would end up on every forum!

    Anyways yeah I have put it up for sale, just testing the water.

    AND TBH not really bothered by what else you could buy and what you would rather do with your money, everyone will make different choices, but there is not another one like this.

    For people slating the bumpers etc, well personal choice I think it looks alot more aggressive then a standard S3 and it compliments the car, but again thats my opinion.

    You cant compare this with a remapped 8P S3, RS4, M5 or what ever, its a different type of animal.

    I love the car mate, if I had the cash I'd snap it up right away! Its expensive as its a VERY unique car and has had a LOT of time and money spent on it! I get its not to everyone's tastes but your getting super car performance for a fraction of the price, sounds awesome to me!

    How come your thinking of selling if you don't mind me asking? Doubt there's much that can keep up with it, lol!

    Took the car to Doug at MRC recently for a health check, apart from a couple of boost leaks, he said everything is perfectly fine with it.

    Has alot more potential too, MRC remap and bigger intake can get it running quite a bit more power.

    Yep to this day I have not had anything keep up with me, its blown away every supercar that has come across it.

    Its has ALOT more potential still! Handling is spot on nothing has been missed or overlooked.

    It's very unique.

    I am sure for the cost an S3 with a proper BT would be as fast and you would have money in your pocket.

    Kudos for the project as a technical exercise, but an awful lot of money spent....

    Well I have had a proper BT S3 and including buying the car you wouldnt see much change from 25-30k?

    My old one was 345bhp, this one is 472 bhp?

    Where can you see it would be as fast? LOL

    I disagree, a nice tidy S3 is around 6K now, you can get an awful lot of Turbo for 19k. I have also seen a BT build that cost not much more than 3k that generates 390BHP, so add the price of the car and be generous and say 10k.

    so 80BHP for 15k isnt so much of a bargain unless you do the work yourself

    Could add an awful lot of turbo / tuning for 15k.

    Like i said, kudos for giving it a go/paying for it etc. One off, but a lot of cash

    You was always going to get a lot of coverage for something so unique, it's the only one in the UK and there's probably only a handful in the whole wide world, and you own one of them!

    It's good plugging if you ask me!

    No, the owner of QST(quattrosports) did the conversion in his spare time, and it took many man hours and I would suspect, some unique/custom parts to make it all work.

    In my opinion i would have bought a s4. or big turbo'd mine.
    Think my S3 with Badger 5's engine
    I know it would be an expensive build but surely nothing like this

    Brakes, suspension, wheels, seats? and other styling mods???

    Or do you tend to forget about them elements, lets be generous

    Not solely just power isit mate?

    1.8 T running 390, 2.7 V6 Bi Turbo 470 bhp, I know which one I would rather have. Adding bigger turbos on the latter you can see 550-600 bhp with ease.

    Only just turned 30k too.
