    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 ***** 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?'

    OMG

    thats, err interesting...

    guess thats low level brake lights? Are they legal at that hight?

    unless I saw the interior I wouldn't have known is was an A3

    Guess the performance wont match the err styling..

    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.

    Don't think I have ever seen such a heap of junk, he forgot to mention the car has only had ''one mentally ill owner''

    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.

    His efforts and thoughts behind this is highly commendable and the shop that did this looked like it did a good job...

    HOWEVER, there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for BAD TASTE!!

    PS What is with the boot? where was it grafted from?

    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.

    that car is horrible! and he has spent a fortune doing it up lol. Check out one of the pics (top right) he seems to have a blue car that has had the same treatment as well! He will be sick if that car stays at £2k any ideas as to how much that would have cost to do?

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

    Is it just me that has to double take if its a rover badge on the front?
