Its an awesome build. Not everyone likes the idea of cars being built just for looks, but like a lot of people say, we aren't all race teams that need to go get the quickest time at whatever track. I've always liked taking the big VIP sedans and taking them to a more track/purpose look. There are a few things I would have done, like take off the damn plastic engine cover and clean up the engine bay. I'd also at least get a manual trans on the thing cause who says this doesn't drive well? Might as well be able to whip it around some local roads and enjoy the performance you get with that big v8.
Either way, the car is cool no matter what. Whether you like the fashion side of the build or hate the lack of performance, the thing is still awesome looking.

I seriously just designed a car like this on a certain 3d car mod sim and I've never seen this car until this post and the fact that the he actually made a real example of what I've dreamed up is amazing! I love every bit of this car!

I almost love it. The wheel set up just throws the whole car off in my opinion. And those gauges are ugly. But other than those two easily replaceable things, this car is absolutely badass. Props to Øyvind for building a fantasy car of mine!

Thank you for some content other that isnt the vossen/airlift promotion!
I love the look of the scirocco and if they came in awd, i'd pick one up in a heartbeat. Looks like I'll just have to swap it all over one day!

@2xthefun @Mike_Vossen Money is part of this situation yes, but to be honest, if I were to have this happen to me I certainly wouldn't have gone and retried it myself after the engine blew up the first time. The character Mike is talking about is that the owner decided he was going to get his ride the way he wanted it no matter if he had to spend a ton more money and install a supercharger himself.
I get the whole "hate on the speedhunters x vossen x airlift circlejerk" thing but you're just being inconsiderate

With such an awesome build, I'm a little disappointed with him using cut springs. I understand it's just a cruiser, but there are much cleaner and more appropriate ways to go about lowering it. Cool car though!

@crazietn @KiwiMotoring This is hard to put in a not mean way, but learn to read. Seriously. Thats the reason why a lot of this internet banter starts. The guy only swapped the body panels, the car has a diesel engine.

Absolutely nothing wrong with this car. If anything, the purists should be thankful he saved another e30 from just sitting around collecting rust waiting to be crushed.
I don't understand why people hate on other's custom cars. Just be happy they decided to actually do something different with their car than just drive another boring stock commuter car....

Something about these back roots japanese builds gets me so excited. I guess I like them because they're a style that is relatable to a lot of us who build on a more cost effective mindset.
Either way, I'd love to be able to wake up every morning and thrash around with this bad boy

@dangina @incloudsx I beg to differ. It's pretty amazing it can stir up that many different opinions and feelings just for being a silverado with an air ride kit (simplified for exaggeration).
This truck is awesome; something I have always loved seeing. Simple, understated, cool.

@wheatgod @apex_DNA Haha he's not the troll here....He's merely pointing out common aspects of the car that are almost always associated with the VIP scene, which the car is obviously a part of. I don't understand how you can say airbags ruin a car either. There are plenty of performance airbag systems that are just as good as coilovers(not saying this car has them). And I don't think this car will ever be hitting the track so I doubt he cars about how stiff his suspension is.
There's no need to be a dick on here. If its not your scene or you just can't appreciate the car, just click on the other hundred articles on here.....
Although I'm not crazy about having the craziest audio/interior equipment, I still love this car. The brown exterior gives the car a pretty sedate/menacing look, but the pink/purple interior just pops out at you and really surprises you. Well done.

I just wished there were movies about cool cars that weren't absurdly juvenile and silly. Sure, most of the people that will see this are the kinda people who don't care too much for intelligent movies, but I think a 'real' movie would still do very well in the market.

@SnoozinRichy The worst part is that I will still probably go see it just because its almost tradition for me to watch these silly movies.
@MrMikeOc When you hover your mouse over top of any of the pictures in the post, a black translucent box should appear on the bottom of the picture, there you'll have 3 options to pick to either enter presentation mode, download the picture as a wallpaper, or share the image. Click the enter presentation mode.
There is also a white box with a black circle inside of it with a computer inside of that at the bottom left corner of the first image (cover image?) of each post. Click that and you should enter presentation mode as well

I'm thinking give us a sport model (rwd, n/a, ~2.0L, 5-speed) and then come out with a type-R (awd, turbo, 6-speed). If something like that happened, I'd be converted to a honda guy

AWD with staggered tire sizes?
The concept is pretty darn stupid if you ask me. Anyone who has the money to afford an offroad supercar can probably afford getting an actual offroad jeep or whatever. I'd rather see Audi focus on getting a new rs4 out or something fun like that.

Definitely go with 14s. I read you were keeping the body mainly stock so 14s will look so much better. \I also want to suggest going with a street/grip style. Keep the exterior mainly stock with just a few grip influences like reasonably wide wheels, possible fender stretch/overfenders, a front lip, and something small in the rear like a small wing. I think that would be an awesome look! Good luck with the build, I'm excited that you're moving along with the project!

I don't see why people can get so offended about something like this. Especially considering this may be one of the few modified a7s around, it's nice to see another car that is not left behind in stock form. And it's not like people are ever going to bring their a7s to the track so why not at least make the car a bit more unique?
