    I have an S3 so its not for me.
    I wouldnt sell it either.
    Sorn it and sort later.
    Nothing worse than spending time on a project then wondering what could have been(your nearly there).
    But each to there own and sometimes you have to prioritise.
    Good luck whatever you choose

    Thanks, just looking at what other cars are out there, thinking of going diesel to really econimise but nothing is catching my eye, I have looked at the a3 1.9tdi just the same car different engine, had a look at mk4 golfs dont like the shapes much, the leon cupra tdi 150 doesnt look to bad, but the vw lupo 1.4tdi looks pretty good for the 3 cylinder 6v engine. stupid money to buy though.

    the thing is i have a work van for use during week and i only use my car to get around town really and go see some friends .... no more than 5k miles each year.

    Dont want to leave the TQS as like the car alot just is a money pit,

    If anyone can suggest another nice car which is cheap to run and insure and tax that would be good

    800 to a grand?! You mad?!

    It's £500's worth if you want to sell it in one lot.

    Surely a K04 refurbed by dan is worth 400-500?

    Less than it cost to refurbish it.

    What something is worth and what somebody will pay for an item are two totally different things.

    You would be very lucky to get £350 for the turbo. You would do much better to break the kit down, but it is still going to be around £600 by the time you post it out.

    £20 for the MAF.

    £20 for the TIP

    £70 for the injectors

    Fuel rail is worthless

    K04 is £350

    S3 exhaust is worth whatever someone will pay, but it is worth much more as scrap.

    Front mount is worth £40.

    That's the prices if you want to sell them, much more and you will be stuck with them. K04 bits are SO common you are always in huge competition and there will always be something cheaper.

    I was offered a FULL K04 setup for £250 earlier this year.

    To be fair, I've been looking into the ko4 conversion for my a3 and as 16klappe mentions, there is loads out there.

    Without water and oil lines, the turbo isn't going to be much use to anyone like myself for that sort of money, as custom lines aren't going to be cheap.
