Hey guys


AFter moving house, and finally getting the internet today thought it was time to get the photos uploaded.


I had a golf gtd dsg before the rs3, which was fantasic at the time due to the miles i was doing but missed the AWD and the speed. I had a s3 sportback before the golf and loved it everyday but it was starting to cost alot on fuel and felt like a change to the golf.


I picked the car from halesowan audi just at Birmingham after 300 mile drive from Glasgow. After signing all the papers i was finally able to take her away. The hand over was fantastic and had the biggest grin on my face the whole way home!

After pulling out the dealership and heading to manchester ( had to take the other half shopping as i got something new, she wanted a new pair of shoes haha) to do a bit of shopping at the trafford centre. Driving on the motorway just felt as gd as the golf, prob a bit better as i didnt feel or hear as much road noise in the RS.

I couldnt have been any happier, the power, the speed and handling were top class and made it worth the wait!


Once i got up the road, i gave the car a clean a couple days after (due to the weather up here) and it keeps growing on me each time i clean it!

The only downfall i have on the daytona grey is it doesnt seem to look good in photos for some reason, always better in person when you see it.


But i do love the fact i can drive it, with not alot of people staring at it cause it blends in nicely but its only if people know what car it is look which i love.


The cars been fantastic so far, ive got the front windows a slight tint, planning on getting MTM wheels later this year/ start of 2013, milly second by pass pipes and chip either mrc or mtm i think


hope you guys like it.

nom nom nom; I have to say that colour works so well with the alu pack.

Some Eibach pro struts to remedy to front arch gap wouldn't be a bad spend either. £120 replaces the front 2 springs, leaves the rears OEM and the car looks straight! I did it this year and it makes it look less speedboat.

I'd be torn between Sepang blue and Daytona grey, but that does look superb; great choice & welcome.

Brodster you won't be disappointed in it! Trust me!

Warrens3 cheers mate, I've ever done springs before think it would be worth while doing it?

Tcardio sorry mate, I'm going to keep hold of the wheels sorry!

I really dislike the reverse rake Audi's seem to have where the front arch gap is bigger. Whilst I wanted to flatten the car a little, it has improved the front end control slightly and not noticeably reduced ride quality. Eventually the dampers will have to go and be replaced by some Koni FSD's as having changed the springs it's clear the dampers are a weak point where you don't have magnetic ride.

I don't think I will buy another new car in glasgow again down to glasgow Audi! The service is shocking I waited 20mins until I got seen at the parts department on Friday plus all they want to offer you is the sale and that it nothing else-no discount etc

The dealer I bought from down south was amazing and advised them I will use them again for my new purchase!

Got my a5 led number plate lighs fitted yesterday!

I will be using drive the deal when I purchase my new S3 or now I'm swaying to RS1, I doubt Glasgow would deal with me after rejecting my 30k Mk2 TT with them. It took 6 months of fighting and continued damage to my car trying to sort seat sag whilst giving me the most basic A3 to run about in before they finally had to give me my money back.
