    New RS3 0-60 Without Launch Control?

    First post on a forum and you choose to blurt a load of absolute twaddle quoting a 5 year old post! I’ve had 6 more cars since my RS3 so advice on what I should do next isn’t that useful. Recommend you look more carefully at post dates and work on sentence structure. Also, you say a “5 like...

    One off rs3

    That airbrushed bonnet really wrecks the car!

    Car Tax (UK)

    Probably not as its a feature put in the car for worldwide markets - just because the UK is making the dependence on CO2 emissions less of a factor doesn't mean everywhere else they sell the cars is.

    Trade in for RS3?

    While that is true, it's far more about the make/model. I could go and get 25% off an A6 today without trying, but getting more than 5% off and RS3 is next to impossible without some serious work and/or history with a dealership. It's about knowing the market for what you are buying and setting...

    Car Tax (UK)

    Yea, they already do this with the 'business editions' of various models/marques which are aimed at keeping the P11D down and in a low BIK bracket (so they will be efficient diesels with Sat Nav etc that business people want for doing miles). These types of 'editions' will as you say be expanded...

    Car Tax (UK)

    Having looked into this a bit more I'm thinking it's bad news RE adding options. It would be easiest for them to take the 'list price' as the same as the current P11D value used for company car tax, and this value does include factory fitted options... So the RS3 is going to be hit as everyone...

    Car Change-over

    It's all down to the market at the time. Dealers will normally only guarantee a deal out to say 3 months in the future.

    Car Change-over

    They'd probably re-finance the lump sum at the end of your PCP in Jan so you carry on paying some monthly figure til the new car came. The GMFV is out the window and you'd just be negotiating with the dealer on a good trade in deal that covers whatever is left of your re-financed lump plus some...

    RS3 vs Golf R400?

    The only thing I like about the R400 is that they mirrored the twin central exhausts of the R32! The Golf R should have had these but they were lazy and followed the easy route of using the same exhaust mounts of the S3.

    RS3 vs Golf R400?

    It's because Merc's are aimed at the ancient who won't be able to work out an input method more complex than 1 button for every 3 letters. So while the A45 is aimed at 25-35 yr olds, it's based on a vehicle aimed at 55+ yr olds. Whereas the A3 is aimed at a much younger market that know how to...

    Bluetooth and MMI

    To answer your first line. Regardless of any option you tick, the Bluetooth abilities are unaffected. Audi Phone box is pretty good to boost phone reception if you make a lot of calls in the car.

    Bluetooth and MMI

    I pay £6 a month for a EE sharer sim that leaches of my iPhone's 10GB data allowance - the car uses less than 1GB a month. I use all of the features on at least a weekly basis. The Google Maps integration looks great and is very handy for the final destination command as it gives street view...

    Bluetooth and MMI

    Tech pack or not you can do calls and stream music. If you add the tech pack you would be foolish not to add the 'with connect' variant which allows you to put a SIM in the dash and get online for many a thing (and not affect your Bluetooth abilities). The tech pack without connect is not worth...
