So what do you drive OP?

Has anyone managed to import a car as "substantially similar" ?
I want a RS3 hatchback in the US.
The body is sold on the A3, so it conforms to crash test requirements.
The engine is sold in the RS3 sedan, so it conforms to emissions.
I would need to swap out the windshield, headlights, and turn signals but that's not a big deal.

what parts would you need. tires?
the older GSs are pretty simple mechanically

the only downside is the size and weight (and looking like a foreigner i guess)

It used to be that everybody on the custom scene in my locality would lower their car back and front, and de-seam it as much as possible. Off came the chrome, logos, door handles and handle lips plated over, even trimming off the rain gutters and smoothing them. Vents welded over. They looked good, like a 1930s bakelite contraption. Then one day Mavis brought a car drenched in chrome, badges, suitcases, skis to the showground. Everybody plumped their tits and went back to the garage. Two years later.

They have a plethora of issues. The fun thing about them is how much aftermarket parts are available for customization. The shitty thing about them is 4l80e's are about the same cost as a built one...
>>
>>23247314
>>23247732
Ahem
>>
>>23249114
The problem with 4l80s is it isn't a direct swap most of the time. It's easier to just get the 60 rebuilt/overbuilt to not die than it is to swap out all the necessary parts for the bigger tranny. Honestly at 275k in a half ton truck I'm impressed the only issues mine have are an occasional sloppy 1-2 shift and a good hard thud into reverse.

Speaking of, where would be the best place to get a rebuilt tranny anyway? Should I chance one of the local shops around town to rebuild mine or just bite the bullet and get one online somewhere?

No. Just in case I get hit. It's also always on and displaying on the screen over my rear view mirror. My rear visibility is shit and this vastly improves it. Also my backup camera.

im trying to sell a truck with de-laminating 14in tires
they dont make that size so a set of four new tires is $400
could i buy a set of four used 15in tires on 15in rims for cheaper?
pick n pull tires are $20ea, how much would a ghetto tire shop charge to install, how do i dispose of old tires?
or knock $400 off the price and tell them lets not go on the highway during the test drive....
