S3 kit value


Wilf

Recommended Posts

Acquaintance of mine at work has inherited an s3 na hc, currently completely in parts as partially restored. I am told it has had a complete respect (black) engine rebuild (on a stand that would be included) two sets if tyres and bbs wheels, one set being new, new shocks and springs all suspension parts cleaned and powder coated with documented strip down and parts catalogued. Think it also has new brembo brake conversion. And a lot of other new parts.

He was offered not very much by a breaker, what would a reasonable amount be subject to what I have been told being true? Car is in southport and I will post pictures and contact details in a few days.

Depends on whats there and what missing.  All there and ok body I cant see it being more than  £2-3K but  you only have to be missing a few bits and the bills will  shoot up.   If they can prove the engine build you are basing it on that value and some spares.

Think I share Buddsys view.  Please though what ever you do don't sell it to a breaker.  This is an HC which there are very few of.  Sell it to someone for the breakers price if you have to but to someone who will save it.

This is why I detest all the usual advice of "buy the best one you can afford"....with the result that the others disappear into parts. So sad....these cars deserve better.
