As above really, if you were to build the perfect mk3 estate what would you do? Make a list of plans/specs that would do to outside and inside, i don't have any ideas as of yet so just let the lists grow

My perfect estate would be a Turbo'ed Sleeper.
For example a 1.6 LS estate, lowered for handling purposes, alloy wheels, Turbo engine. But otherwise look completely standard even to the point of putting a tow bar on it. So ya get some little scrote in his Saxo thinking he's racing a grandad off the line in an old estate, and just watch his face drop as the estate kicks his arse!

out of curiosity,

1.4i est gls,

can the lump be striaght swapped out for a c20xe or 1.7 Isuzu Turbo Diesel?

would electronics/loom/box/clucth need transplanting as well?

also any gains from going 1.4 to 1.6 engine again straight swap how easy?

prices if anyone has (ball park figures)

V6, Cruise control, Air Con, Leather 200TS Kit, Konis Eibachs, maybe an LSD.

you'd need quite alot of parts to do an engine swap like that,legs, hubs brakes, driveshafts from a bigblock. The diesel wont fit straight in as the petrol models dont have a certain engine mount, one on the chassis leg, that needs to be welded in place, but the diesel engine will go in as its been proved, but alot of work, plus fuel tanks need swapping for diesel etc

Yeah a Nice 3.2 V6 would be a nice engine
