    Thinking about selling my A4 and getting an S3.The misses has passed her test and were going to get something economical for her to drive so i can get something less economical.What i wanted to know is will i be better off taking off the extras ive put on it and selling them seperate.It will be S4 Recaro Interior,S4 Front brakes(b5),RS4 RARB,Koni SSK kit,FMIC,Full Milltek,Alloys and the kit minus the spoiler.They are all fairly new as i only got the car in April.Ive got all the original parts so it wont be a problem.Or do i leave them on and ask abit more for the car?

    from my experience you will get loads more if you sell the modified parts separately as many people shy away from an overly modified car even tho it isnt a problem. i would sell things such as the exhaust, intercooler and seats as most wont appreciate them and no doubt not pay much more for them. and you will gain a fair bit of cash

    oh and would you consider me 1st if selling your S4 seats? :)

    thanks mate, now i remember how much you got them for ;)

    on a serious note, you will make much more selling it all individually.

    I have test drove an S3,didn't like it.The boot is too small for me and it didn't live up to my expectations.Looks like i will have a look for a 1.8t A4 instead so i will be keeping all the bits for that,sorry chaps.

    210,the gear change was notchy is that normal or just that one?It didn't feel that fast to me neither,sounds daft but my golf is quicker.Maybe it was just a **** one i dont know.Might find one which has been remapped and try that,might change my mind.

    definately look out for the updated 225bhp model. in standard from they wont feel very quick tbh, but they will remap to 260-270 and feel good then

    A4 1.8T feel very flat too, if you are used to all the torque from a diesel its hard getting used to a petrol again

    the 210's remap exactly the same as 225's, upto a maximum of 260ish BHP. However, the later DBW's can be ODB remapped without removing the ECU.

    Gear notchiness is normal for the 6-speed box.

    And definitely put the car back to standard. Not only will you make more money from selling the bits seperately, but you'll widen your scope of potential buyers.
