    Yep, it's mine, just testing the waters :unsure:

    Struggling to decide what to change it for, need more of a family car that's quick but not too thirsty...330d keeps coming to mind, or maybe a 320si

    320si is a bit lame.

    The newer 2.0 turbo motor in the F30 would be worth a look, but a nat asp 2.0 petrol? No way.

    330d is a decent option, its just a shame the 335d doesnt come with a proper gearbox.

    I know, the only thing what appealed to me about the SI is the limited number that have been made, but i'd have to test drive one because torque is quite low so i may hate driving it after a while. The 330d M Sport is looking favourable.

    The 320d is faster to 60 than the Si by a couple of tenths, and the later 184 variant by even more!

    You said you wanted something quick, a 320si does not tick that box :p

    Lovely car

    What's the story behind the build?
    Did the 1.8t fail or was it a project you decided to do
    What's your review on oem, modded S3 vs 3.2v6?

    The main reason for doing the conversion was the realiability of my 1.8T, was having constant issues, ran great for a while then something ends up failing and then when the piston rings let go i decided to go for the 3.2. What i should of done was save my money over 3yrs and then gone to Bill for a full rebuild and BT, but saying that i don't regret the 3.2 V6, it's never let me down...just needs a turbo on it

    If i do sell it, it's going to be a sad day but family comes first and what ever car i get will more than likely get some tweaks, can't leave it standard :)

    It's a cracking car.. No doubt it will generate some interest as its a one off! I personally think you should go for that rs4 Sandip :p

    This car may stay in the asn family yet.

    Providing i can sell the ST pronto we would like to give sandip a nice offer. The mrs has really taken to it and ive always loved the car.
    I pick the ST up from the sprayer tomoro after the wheels having a makeover, and will get a service stamp and health check from collins performance and its good to go.

    The later, all alloy diesel engine is rubbish, chains break and blocks crack- i have a 28k in the workshop with block cracked in 2 places, i would go good old cast iron block if i was in the market !

    They're a damn sight cheaper than your neck of the woods, that's for sure. But that'll soon be out weighed by the higher cost of petrol (about $2.50 AUD) and insurance, which is a legal requirement over here... Not to mention the considerably lower average income! (Although I obviously can't speak on Sandip's behalf there)

    Appreciate the heads up on which engine is more reliable, so does the E46 have a iron block?

    They do, could buy an RS4 but running it would be really difficult, cost of living has gone up massively


    My 6mth old son is my current RS4, just as thirsty :)
