Ballpark figure? (or PM if you'd prefer ).
Sigh, I was happy with my S3 until I read this and tuftyblokes build thread, lol!
I've never been happy with my S3's performance and threads like this just dont help. Go away Faz and dont come back till you have a 1.1 fiesta ghia
Dont worry Olly you still got LM's
I have bin away for a while mate lol just came back to surprise ya SMILE NOW lol
LM's look awesome when the S3 is slammed on them!
Dear Lord - what a car that thing must shift. Need to get home so I can see that vid - bloody work computers!
I'd fancy 2 oval exhausts, just llike the RS4.
Should go quite well though...lol
Faz you should change your name now to FazRS3.
Finally you've put it up here.
Been nagging him to share it with you guys on ASN for a while now. Had the pleasure of driving this car and guys what can i say.... seriously. Mind blowing.
We've (Me &Faz) always wondered how it would be like against a modern day ultra fast car...
So we tried the new B7 RS4 (standard) it totally totally humiliated that no questions asked. All i could see were tiny red lights in the distance in a matter of few seconds in the B7.... at 2am... on private track.... of course.
Then we tryed it up againt the BMW M6 Coupe SMG... 507bhp 5.0L V10. Now these cars are seriously quick esp with that SMG.
Again the RS3 started behind but was in front no problem and i was really struggling to keep up... gear changes where spot on from my side of the driving and the SMG changes are quick and sharp anyway... but again i was struggling to keep up let alone take him.... at 3am.. on private track.... of course.
Surely this lil old S3 cant take a Lamborghini Gallardo...!!! Can it...?? 100k+ Supercar...
Anyways just wanted to explain in terms of speed and power how quick Faz's car is....
Sounds awesome the Two turbos churning out their sound then the sound of the wastegate and custom exhausts gives you a surreal experience.
Nice gentle cruiser on the motorway but untold to the world what actually lives beneath it...!
MTM proved they could certainly do it... albeit 400 hours and thousands of ££££.
Very unique and one off car like it in the world.
thats one sweet motor, does it handle with the heavyer lump in it?
Yeah its on H+R coilovers handling is good! All RS4 running gear.
about time you started sharing it lol
IMHO this is a BEAST nothing compares to this sounds imense and goes like nothing ive been in before
your back with a vengance faz. smashed it mate good stuff!!!
if i er came into the money i would do it ! nice motor exhaust surrounds look cramp & so does the front bumper ! bet it quick though !
i wana see the 1/4 mile Faz, get it on the strip soon mate
Congrats Faz... Taking it to a whole different level... Good to see S3 FLX on it to smashing it mate...
So proper quattro then?
Erm, I would guess so?????
Easy Jiny!! Did text ya bro, dont know if you changed ya number?!?!?
LOL, when ya lining up the mini tim?
Cheers mate! Appreciate your feedback
you know how we do!! I be up coventry ends quite a bit mate!!
Could this be the ultimate 8L S3?
Faz i actually have photos of what i assume to be the same car from years ago ! engine bay slightly different but looks to be the same car with a different plate.
OMG that must be rapid.
It would be for sure if it were a white one. Get it sprayed Faz, that's one hell of a car and needs a paint job to match.
Silver has got to be the most boring car colour ever...
So you did get it in the end?!
Read a bit on you debating as to whether you were going to get it on S/RS site. Glad you did then?
Spoke with Kim about this several times over the year - very nice. :icon_thumright:
Faz...feck orf haha
I don't think he give a damn about the colour when he is behind the wheel!
Faz congratz on the new unique car. Bet it feels on another level compared to your other two cars.
Yeah I have just taken a cover off! S3 MTM?
Considering vinyl wrap mate! want something that will blend with chrome mirrors and grill? you reckon white would?
Yeah mate! Kim was very helpful! He is a top man!
LOL, exactly colours just become a blur!
Wow!!! more pics :O
How much weights the car???.
I suggest you removing the rear bumpers' metal pieces.
you win the prize for the most random comment of the day
best S3 ive seen to date
lets face it, any S3 with this engine in is pretty special...... think id prefer Faz's tho as its not raced out like that one.... cool car though
Antichrist of a car , full spec list ?
I had a passenger ride in your RS3 just over 5 years ago. My S3 was being chipped by QST and Kim took me to Haywards Heath station in it. It was still work in progress at that point but boy, was it fast...
You're a lucky boy!
Its due to go on the scales 2moro lad lol
this thread is making me think about eyeing up my dads RS6 engine.......I wonder if he would notice..........
For sexual gratification, all OK.
It wouldn't fit in your engine bay though.
I most certainly think it is.
The Ultimate 8L S3.
The other Rear wheel drive one is OTT. Its a full blown race/track car whereas this one can be used everyday... Still got all its creature comforts.
this car is mental, gotta be the best s3 about, i would be interested if i had the cash, but i haven't ,
