I'd like to start by saying thank you to everyone who has guided me through my ownership of my 8L.

It's with deep regret and heartache that I'm now putting my S3 on the market.

This is the hardest decision I think I've had to make in my life.

I'm hardly driving it and I have other plans which can only be done once the S3 has gone.

Why this price? Because it's unique.

I know it's 8p money and you could get a newer car for the money... but it's not a noggy 8L with a v6 sound track.

Spec
3.2 V6 conversion done by PSI TUNING in 2012

Stage 2 Custom Code map by JBS

Larger DSG MAF

GREEN panel filter with cold air feed

Decat

Full Pipewerx exhaust system

Chains and tensioners done

Clutch/flywheel done - nice and quiet

Genuine BBS Speedlines 19"

AP Coilovers

Compbrake big brakes

Full Alpine ICE with pioneer headunit

Blue Alcantara/Black leather


Car goes well, sounds awesome and the engine is mechanically sound.

The things I would suggest the new owner to do is:

Front wings-bit crusty

haldex service - grinds on lock

front pads in near future

Minor dings (have to look for them) one larger on passenger rear arch (dent man said he can get it out)

change the CCM/ALARM siron

I think I've covered everything, if anybody is interested then please pm me. I would appreciate anyone who is interested to view the car before making any offer.

I may possibly do a deal with another car but all depends what it is and the overall deal.

Thank you for reading the ad, I will respond to any pm's as soon as possible.

Never been on a dyno. If you've driven a standard 32 you should feel a considerable difference. It's quick enough but being honest a stage 2 1.8t will pull away.

Attached a photo of the current mileage, engine has done approx around 100k.

I am loaning my mates mk4 R32,and although yes a stage 2 1.8t would be quicker coming from a standard V8 4.2 I am happy with the power, no dilly dallying with waiting for the turbo to kick in.
On it...

The thought has crossed my mind many times but I've had it a long time and I've learnt life if too short to hold onto something just because it has sentimental values, the next potential buyers will be taking the car to a level of tune that is going to hopefully make this car an absolute beast and get the full admiration it deserves. Will be a sad day when I hand the keys over but i'll be happy at the same time, as it'll be going to someone who's going to cherish it.

Updated photos, took them yesterday. The engine has done approx 85-90k in total (30k since the conversion).

Thanks matey, won’t your mate take it. I really have my heart set on the b8.5 just for the practicality and room, but this draws me in every time I see it. That s4 I see in the back ground your new motor lmao wheels looks ace.

He will once he gets stuff sorted on his side, just waiting for somethings to go through what are out of his control. You're welcome to come anytime you want to have a look, no pressure.

Well spotted, it's a B5 1.8t, although I have been debating on a B5 S4 to go along side it

Bought the B5 because of the rare colour, as far as I know it's the only Magnolia Pearl White B5 A4 in the country :sunglasses:

After a lot of thinking I have decided I will be keeping the car.

Reading many comments of people regretting selling their 8L has made me realise my car is worth keeping and I will sort all the minor faults out and make a few more changes on the way.
