    That's the lightest shade of Grey I have ever seen.
    Name on the Dastek graph looks like Paul Shepherd if that's any help.

    Nice work and a good buy for someone.

    The maximum bhp quoted on the printouts is 384bhp,so it may well be as quoted,a Stg2+ car.

    Also,there is no mention of either a bigger turbo,or RS4 injectors,so I think it's safe to call it a Stg2+ car with an engine rebuild.

    I did think that. Good base for stage 3 however with the engine internals done but its still somewhat overpriced.

    Don't get me wrong. It's a beauty.

    But why would you do the engine rebuild if you weren't going stage 3 or 4....... Suspicious.

    We all (should) know that the car modifying is a bottomless pit of a mugs game. Totally sunk cost. In almost very instance.

    Agree with that, for an xtra 6 grand or there abouts ul get a 3yr newer RS3.

    Insurance would probably be more expensive declaring the mods than an RS3 I imagine.

    Smart car tho :)

    Very difficult to blow up a big turbo on one of these cars as they're a lot less stressed at say 450 bhp than the K04 is at 380bhp.

    The first owner was mad alex a local lad to me. Lovely car :wub: The noise this thing mad! The car was only ever running stage 2+ when he had it. Engine was rebuilt to go big turbo (while he decided what turbo route to go).
    But Alex ended up finding his dream car 997 GT3 in Riviera Blue :wub: Lovely car but not worth that price without a big turbo conversion & my BBK.
    The S3 is now on its second owner, who has put it up for sale. Car looks lovely with the RS3 grille :wub:

    And something i know that will upset you all! Unfortunately for the GT3 it was sold a week ago on thursday and the new owner wrote it off two days later:sob::banghead:

    When you sell your own cars, do you simply sell them for the price they can be bought at auction?
