    It seems too common when people take their cars off the road to do major work then they lose interest an break, seems to happen all the time these days.

    Main reason ive always kept mine road going and not bought another car for a daily runner.

    Be a shame to see another mk3 breaking on here

    I couldn't break mine if I started. I don't like leaving things unfinished but must be a hard decision to break something some much money love blood sweat and tears has gone into

    Prefer the cupra, think s3s are abit boring looking. And dont drive much different to the cupra seems abit of a pointless change to me but thats just my opinion.

    Hows the neighbours with the shell lol? Mine have been cool with the golf i just stripped onto a 225 quattro tt now.

    The bonnet is still here waiting for you
    I personally think the s3 is so much more of a car and the way it handles is unreal really

    S3's are definetly a better quality car, would have a cupra over one though, s3 is a bit more grown up.

    Shame you stripped it, engine would have been a good base for something more powerful in the future.
