    Roof Bar Options for Bikes / Roof Box - Help Needed

    Hi I’m looking to purchase an 8P without factory roof rails. Very occasionally I will need to transport a couple of bikes or a roof box. I’m a bit lost as to options and any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Order new base RS3 or new fully loaded Golf R now?

    I ran a 2015 Golf R for just over 2 years. Great car, did everything well but never really excelled at anything and wasn’t the most exciting thing to drive. For the price there is no denying they are an attractive proposition but my money would go on a base RS3 or another option a low mileage...

    RS3 Order Book now open

    And it looks like you guys may have been right. Roll on the new 2.5l, hybrid, 500bhp from factory, 0-60 in under 3s beast (can live in hope)....

    RS3 Order Book now open

    If that’s true then it’s game over for this model, the interior is showing its age and with the new A3 model just round the corner I can’t see them offering this version any longer.

    RS3 Orders (week 10/11)

    That’s a lot considering the deposit, nearly £800pm all in. What was the GFV? Thanks

    RS3 Orders (week 10/11)

    Nothing to do with Brexit, exchange rate is better now that it was when 5.9% was available. Blame greedy Audi

    RS3 Orders (week 10/11)

    Let us know how you get on. M2’s are holding up pretty well since the release of the competition. The N55 makes a lovely sound. As for SS Seat, they aren’t as hugging as some but they look really nice and will definitely help the cars future value.

    RS3 Orders (week 10/11)

    £46,000 for that spec is really strong money in my opinion and lack of SS Seats and Sports Exhaust will make it more difficult to sell when the time comes. You can order a brand new one for less than that one

    RS3 Orders (week 10/11)

    I bailed due to lack of individual colours and limited option customisation, a bit gutted as I’d been waiting for the order books to hopefully open up again. Best of luck for whatever you decide, it’s still a amazing car and potentially the last ICE RS3.

    Such a shame isn’t it. Such an amazing car deserves to be personalised and seen in a variety of colours. This is what I was deciding between...

    RS3 Order Book now open

    Just been speaking to my local Audi dealership and it seems that individual colour options are no more, at least for the foreseeable future anyway due to WLTP which is a real shame and sadly rules it out for me as an option. Don’t get me wrong, nothing wrong with the colours on offer by I really...

    RS3 Order Book now open

    Very interesting that order books have been opened up again considering how little time is left before the new A3 arrives. They must have a backlog of parts sitting around to clear out before production ceases. Great news for people who missed out previously when the order books suddenly...

    So many paint chips...

    Just take your time and slowly build up the layers over a few hours until it’s slightly raised above the chip then use a compound like G3 to take it down. I use a needle tip to apply as a brush is to large. If anyone is around the Norwich area and want me to show them then just drop me a...

    Wait for 2019 RS3 or not?

    Best bet would be to order at the end of a quarter. I’ve always found being polite but to the point works. Also be ready to do the deal there and then to get the best discount, none of this I’ll think about it. Call around a few dealers as well as some will be more willing to negotiate than...

    Dealers take the Mick

    Also.... may be worth contacting RS Direct to see what they would offer. They are moving into RS3s more and more and they also do not shy away from modified cars.

    Dealers take the Mick

    Absolutely stunning.... £27k is a joke for that car with that spec. Selling privately would be your best best. If you priced it right it would more than likely be gone in a few days. If I didn’t need finance on my purchase I’d be one of the first calling.

    Facelift UK RS3 Saloon/SB (400ps) Order Thread...

    Why would you want to hand it back at the end of the term? The GFV on these is quite low in my opinion. After 4 years I’d like to think one of these will still command £30k plus. Cant see Mk1s dropping much below £20k, PFL £25-28k and these £30k. All ok the mk’s are great cars, amazing engine...

    Facelift Discounts

    There was nothing cloak and dagger about my original post, I was making a factual statement about what I have been offered. It's not my place to post the details as I am not the original point of contact with the dealer, end of. It's not a question of not being helpful but one of curtesy to the...

    Facelift Discounts

    I was kindly pointed towards this dealer by a fellow member of this very site. As for the list of "requirements" including proof of the actual quote, I don't have to prove anything and was mearly giving people a heads up that deals can be done.

    Facelift Discounts

    I've been offered £3.4k off a new factory order with a £51k spec so deals are out there but this is 100+ miles away so you have to hunt around.
