Looking for a donor....

Been in contact with Mark and Terry @ Marlin, the Audi A3 donor base appears to be very small.
As the Seat Leon and Audi A3 use the same chassis and Engine as an Audi A3, We are going to broaden our search to include these. Seat Leon Cupras come with a 180bhp enigne , which is what is needed for me. And Cupra type R's have a 225bhp Engine.
Im off to see a Cupra 180bhp tonight, so maybe the net is tigthening on the donor......
