    Cool Photoshop S3 with MTM wheels

    Got someone to do this...
    Looks nice....

    Standard one first.



    MTM wheels.



    Not sure about these ones. I like the privacy glass though... Very light.



    And then the all out on this picture...!!

    LOL. My cousin spent £10k on his TT in the summer. Youre right. Coilovers £800, 6 pot Porsche Brakes £1500, Turbo kit £4000 etc etc. Your bank account is strugglin, one hell of a smile on the face. What are the S3 brakes like Jamie?

    Shhheeesh man - I've not spent £6k modding, sadly don;t have that sort of disposable cash to chuck at the car!!! Maybe if the numbers came in, who am I kidding i'd be in a 911GT3!!!
    Standard S3 brakes are pretty good though LOL

    The old S3 i had was done by MTM... previous owner had spent.. are you guys ready.... £10,000 on it. I had all his receipts when i got the car.... but 10k
    Heres what cost him this much....

    MTM Clutch
    MTM Springs
    Koni dampers
    Neuspeed anti roll bars
    Adjustable tie bars
    Powerflex bushes
    Front Porsche 996 MOVIT brakes 342MM Disks
    ECS rear brake upgrade
    Haldex control unit
    Big turbo
    Spacers front and rear
    Samco hoses

    If he had got the MTM wheels put on wouldve cost almost 13k!!!
    But if you've got the $$ then nothing else i'd spend it on

    Thanks, my cousin is a professional footballer, it just depends on what your passions are. He already has a house, so its all good. My cousin's spec is similar to your one. S3 must have been rapid. My cousin's TT is 0-60 = 4.8s...

    S3 was awesome it really was... Best car i've owned even better than the new S3... regret selling it to be honest.. don't know what why i did.

    0-60 never really tried it out but i remember previous owner telling me a pretty impressive figure. Its for sale by the way

    Its been tampered with now.. different alloys, lights and other bits and bobs. Not sure looks as good as it did plus alot of miles on it now aswell. Awesome car loads of fun to drive.

    When i had it





    Ultimate stealth car...!

    Stealth is my favourite word for the S3. I'd love to buy a new one and make it 380bhp/400bhp

    Looked at a set of these but just couldn't justify the cost. They are a beautiful product, but at this point in my life I'm not rich enough to have that kind of spare cash sitting dormant and unused!

    For me, with over 33k already spent you start adding 2.5k of wheels and your closing in on the better side of 40k, and the S3 isn't worth that kind of money to me. It's nice, but then I guess it depends where your priorities lie. Also you get sweet FA back when you come to sell the extras.

    I agree, but if you think modifying is an investment then you are a fool.

    seen these alloys on a few cars when I had my S3 MTM'd, the pics dont do them justice, but they are very expensive I think, Im not keen on the MTM logo on them too, would be nicer without that for me

    I had some MTMs on my 8L S3. Not as light as I was expecting, but they do look the nuts.

    Not sure if he's too happy with it as a daily hack. Sitting in traffic with a race clutch can be a pain in the ass, and he's not too keen on the short shift. Don't think he's going to sell it though, just seeing what the interest is.
