I bet the person that was trading it in took a big hit, he should have parted out and got his money's worth while he could, unless they gave him 40 for it that would have been crazy.

Oh dear lord I have created a monster...

I'm happy my thread caused plenty of lolz and speculation though. Very satisfying.

According to him the dealership bought the car to mod it so it was never traded in or owned by anyone other then the dealership owner.

They just sent me this email when I listed out the prices I found:


"In all honesty, I have APR specialists that can go over specific pricing on each part for you. Is there a good telephone number where a rep can reach you?"

Selling a modded car like this takes the fun out of modding, and appeals to people that want the made-fast car without the hassle of making it fast themselves. If anyone has the money to buy this, PM me and ill tell you how to spend 20k on a R the right way. 20k you can build the 2.0TFSI engine.

Sorry, but you're a fecking idiot to pay $50K for a modded R. Nice 993 with room for another car to dick around with day to day for that kind of money.

Not to derail the thread, but dude where did you get the Martini sticker for your steering wheel??!??!?!?!

APR TBE - $1912.49
APR HPFP - $1099.99
Intake - $599.99
Short Shifter - $249.99
NEUSPEED Hi-FLO turbo discharge pipe - $169.99
VWR 5mm interlocking hub spacers - $179.99
BBK - $2799.99
Springs - $329.00
BBS CH-R - $660/wheel = $2640
Tires - Aprox. $1000 (high end estimate)
Matte wrap - wraps usually cost about $600-$700

This brings me to a total of $11,731.42. Now you are definitely tuned but didn't list it so lets add that in.

Stage 2+ tune - $549.99
Total - 12,281.41

I didn't put in the G2 calipers because I couldn't find pricing for them but they won't be 7.8k.

Can you explain where this 20k in mods comes from?
A good vinyl wrap is actually closer to $3-4K, which would bring the grand total to around $14K. And that doesn't count labor costs for all the performance mods, which could really add up depending on how much the previous owner was able to install on his own. This guy might have actually invested closer to $20K than we thought, but the dealer is crazy if they think they're going to recoup the previous owner's investment with a modded used car.

hmm I didn't know they got that high. I guess it depends where they got it done and if it was done properly.

Either way the guy emailed me back and said he assumes the rest of the money is from labour costs. They are used parts so the fact I quoted him at brand new prices was generous enough never mind these guys asking for someone to pay the labour costs. I bet if you knocked off the hit they would take on selling the parts used it would get you closer to the appropriate cost of the wrap and to be honest a wrap shouldn't add value to a car. If the car was repainted a different color would you expect to get more for the car? I wouldn't.

Maybe the buyer would want a hatch, not a sedan. But for 50 grand, I'd have an S3 *shipped*/imported from Europe for that money. Or some other eurohatch that I may not know about.
