Hello, anyone know of this polo gti with a s3 engine?

my cousins planning to buy it instead of a s3, he thinks it'll be cheaper to run and insure than a stock s3

advice would be very much appreciated?

It would be insured as a modified vehicle, probably costed around the same as the car its based on. Deffo be quicker as it's lighter than a lardy S3

It'll look like a Polo too, remember (I suppose not the worst thing, but certainly no S3). It should be a bit cheaper on fuel, being lighter etc, but servicing and repairs could end up being more since it'll still be S3 bits needed and someone familiar with both cars.

Built a 450hp Polo a while back... was a handful tbh... even with a diff and Apexi boost controller but a hybrid K03 in a Polo would be pretty swift and well within the realms of the chassis...

Lets hope he doesn't crash as he won't be covered by insurance at all.

Defo worth the wait :)
Not being funny, but if he cant afford to insure the car for what it is, why do it?

Its stories like this that end up putting the cost up for innocent people that are insuring their cars.

Not to mention if anything happens to the car, he isnt going to be insured and think of the hassle the 3rd party would have?

Anyway, thats my moan over....apart from that the car does look pretty good and will defo be very quick, I see its Birmingham based, but I have never seen it about, I do remember a Nimbus Grey one a while ago and that was rapiiiiid!!!!

i think you should stop acting "ALL THAT" with the insurance thing, everyone does it, just like you drive your car over 70mph, OH i forgot you've never in your life BROKEN THE ROAD LAWS;

"Its stories like this that end up putting the cost up for innocent people that are insuring their cars.

Not to mention if anything happens to the car WHILST YOUR SPEEDING, he isnt going to be insured and think of the hassle the 3rd party would have WHEN YOU SMASH INTO THEM AT OVER 70mph?"

The thing is, NOT everyone does it. If he hits a car full of people and kills all bar one and that one is then disabled because of his actions, whether he is doing 2 MPH or 70. Who is going to pay for the care of the person? If i hit a car doing 100 mph, I will still be insured. I will have broken the law, but a different traffic law.

It's this kind of thing that keeps insurance premiums high. If you didn't want anyone to comment, you probably should have thought better of posting it on an open forum.

So you are saying he will obey every traffic law because he knows he won't be insured? I didn't think so.

Its not about being 'all that' as you put it dude and I think you will find, not everybody does do that, oh and you dont know me or anything about my circumstances to know whether I care to go over 70??

Even if i did go over 70 and hit someone, I would still be insured, regardless.

Bottom line is you are on a public forum, openly talking about breaking the law and its common knowledge now that ALOT of insurance companies use forums to gather information on people that may or may not be insured, they hate paying out, so if they had anything on your cousin, he would have paid his premium and the company would have every right to cancel his policy there and then, with no refund and in turn make it even harder for him to get insured again....thats if he was to get another policy!!

Not trying to be a higher authority here or anything, but just saying what many others are probably thinking.

Cars are not found via numberplate anymore.

Due to the un-insured driver crack down, they are now done only on ABI code check to calculate premiums

to save a argument i'ii advise him if he does buy to get insured the right way but how many people are out there driving with undeclared its defo less than the speeders out there who on a daily basis break the law

Given the previous owner has correctly updated the DVLA with the fact that it has an engine conversion:

Date of Liability01 09 2012
Date of First Registration03 01 2001
Year of Manufacture2001
Cylinder Capacity (cc)1798cc
CO2 EmissionsNot Available
Fuel TypePETROL
Export MarkerN
Vehicle StatusLicence Not Due
Vehicle ColourBLACK

Its going to be pretty difficult for your mate to pretend to the insurance that its only a 1.6 GTI with a few tweaks...

Lol but a good point joking aside & seriously worth remembering.. I have read one devious example of an insurer trying to use forum banter against its insured driver, suggesting he was street racing at the time his engine caught fire. If you get a discount by quoting your forum user name, either use a 'clean one' or be very careful what you say out there!

Biggest engine fitted to a 6N from the factory was a 1.6 16v with ~120hp.

Also, the 1.8T is 1781cc as standard, not 1798, so someones clearly changed it and put the wrong value down on the form!

insurance companies re only interestedin FACTS not some BANTER on a forum, i doubt that they pay any information to forums when paying out BUT if they happen to b like the flux insurance they may well do, really depends on valve on the car, they aint gonna spend hours going through forums trying to catch people out on a cheap 3k audi,, may well do on a 15-20k motor but doubt it very much on a 3-4k s3, they'll even bother
