    His description is off, it should be:

    18 inch toora wheels custom painted candy orange (with custom kerb job, unique pattern on each wheel as I can't park very well)



    Looks complete **** imo

    I love this quote:
    "This car has never been smoked in and looked after very well"
    So he didn't smoke in it and he didn't look after it???

    i admire the owners enthusiasm,i mean a lot of work has gone into it,but then it looks a hell of a sight worse than it did before he spent all that time and money on it,it does look like a piece of ****e though to be fair.

    I think there are more Honda parts on it than Audi.....just out of interest I wonder how much he has spent on it. I can just imagine Christmas in that house LOL......'Sorry luv, couldn't get you a S3 bumper, will this honda one fit?'

    Interesting rear lights (from an RX8) though. I actually feel for the guy; it's been modified to death and now is absolutely worthless. 500 for parts only IMO.

    needs one more addition, a gallon of petrol and a packet of swanvestas .... actually the fuel might be worth more. Despite what it looks like someone has had fun modifying it but its just not my taste.

    Well you're right, it's certainly stunning.

    Words fail me. Enforced castration should be the resolve in this case. The gene-pool needs protecting from the chump who did that.

    I honestly feel sick to my stomach.

    If he'd spent as much on it making it go quicker it would have been a start!
