    Facelift Picked up my RS3 today, come from an RS6.. Splitters..

    Picked up my FL today.. Really pleased with it.. I'll take some more pictures tomorrow. I sold a C7 RS6 late last year, the Rs3 seems more agile and nearly as fast. Love the way an RS sits on the road and feels so planted. Splitters... Due to the dark colour of the car and black pack the...

    Rs3 to B7 Rs4 - anyone done it ?

    S4 TFSI has come into play also but I think I'd like to stick with an RS. The V8 is a stunning sound track.

    Exhaust Tips Corrosion - Anyone suffering the same?

    Washed the RS today. Got the wire wool out and metal polish. Rubbed and rubbed until my fingers were nearly bleeding.. I just couldn't get them to come good. They almost look pitted in placed. Cars only done 12k.

    Is your RS3 getting faster?

    So mines just clocked over 11,000 miles. I swear recently its feeling noticeably faster. I'm not sure if its a combination of new tyres, cat bypass pipe (more noise), and warmer weather. Anyone else's feeling faster now with a few miles on the clock? On another plus note the fuel light...

    How many of you buy these on finance?

    My quick view on this... 40k depreciating asset. Mr A goes in and spends his 40k hard earnt savings on his dream RS3. Mr B also buys the same car but he puts it on finance for 4 years with a 4k deposit (with a guaranteed value of 19k after 4 years) and leaves 36k I the bank. The savings Mr A...

    Tough choice RS3 to RS5 ? Opinions?

    Hmmm I know a car that doesn't fit to that rule. Mk5 R32 Golf - £460 a year to tax, not better than an RS3 which is cheaper to tax.

    Tough choice RS3 to RS5 ? Opinions?

    You know my thoughts.. But then again a change is as good as a rest.. Is the tax more on the RS5? More fuel? bigger tyres? More insurance? Just thinking of the added expense.
