Donnington grey....no brainer here. Was between this and Sophisto Grey. Tinted windows at a stupid 350 quid and carbon interior. That’s it. Comes with HUD as standard and Harmon Kardon so all good.


I mean doesnt have external carbon like this car does but wow imo. Also now comes with the red callipers as standard

Its only money....

although 19mpg would hurt, the M5 did more than that most of the time.

Donington is the best colour though!

only money lol, but I do get what you mean.

Not too bothered about low 20s mpg, see high teens quite often in my RS3 but as long as I don’t see mid teens when I’m driving at 70 on the motorway I’m all good ha. My old man collected his RS6 last week and has an average of 13 ha, says he needs a fuel tanker driving behind him it’s so bad. Must have a heavy right foot.

Donnington is a no brainier, love it. Can’t wait. Issue is I have to wait till June. Sales person said would find out more info this week for me and let me know. Could be sooner which would be great.

Yeh seems that way. Was looking through the options list and other than the pan roof nothing jumps out at me as a must. Do think the red can look pretty smart but having never owned a rad car, I like the idea of owning one but never bold enough to spec one. Porsche in Guards red maybe ha

Only just catching up on this thread.
Congratulations on your order, it’ll be a beast.
My car was from Eastern but the wife’s was from John Clark Dundee recently. Overall dealings with them were good however a word of warning. Never had so many forms to sign (electronically) for a new car in my life. So much so we complained to the manager, especially as they contained so many mistakes too.
Not long until June.........

Cheers, thanks :) Cant wait. Unsure if it’s worth getting it mapped, will cross that bridge further down the line.

I did think that. Audi Q5 SB was just the 1 form, sure I signed 3 maybe 4 Over email with John Clark.

Was JC Aberdeen but asked if they could conduct the handover down the road in Dundee, they seemed happy enough. Just hope they aren’t driving it down the road from Aberdeen. I’ll be sure to ask it gets delivered to Dundee

Worse than the RS3 ?

The RS3 is a Prius by comparison lol. I've now ticked over 1k miles, running in service tomorrow, with an average MPG to date of 17.9 mpg lol. Round town its 10-12. Any hint of an incline on the motorway at 70 and its 18mpg.

Very nice! You didn’t buy it for economy though, enjoy :thumbs up:
PS. Even with a “mere” 360bhp I get 22 - 24 mpg towing a big caravan with mine :tearsofjoy:

Ha fair point, however I did think it would have been similar to that of the Audi, circa 25, ah well! Looks great and goes well. Cant wait till the service tomorrow and finally able to floor it, £450 running in service...ridiculous.

What do you get on normal daily driving out of interest?

Be thankful its only £450 - on an M5 the full price starts with a 7....
The M5 managed better fuel consumption than that - although it could do 12 on the school run, but it would do 25 on a decent run....

The RS4 is positively parsimonious by comparison and not much worse than the SQ5....

Rang a few garages, most wanted £550 plus but having spoken to Eastern BMW and dropped in a family friend and Auntie who work there, I obtained a sizeable discount :thumbs up: £7...pffffft, not cheap for what's clearly an oil change and flash I'd suspect.

25, I would bite your hand off for that but its not going to happen as I do a lot of town driving. I was amazed that having set cruise control to 70 on the way down from Aberdeen I only managed 23mpg!!!!

Id have entertained an RS4 but not at 6.5%

Yes, fortunately the son in law works in the trade so I got staff rates and less than 400....

I think I pay 6% - was going to pay it down but the residual is very high so I see some value in that. Mind as it currently seems to be worth only £2k less than I paid for it 7 months ago, I might get rid and try something else for a while!

Lovely you don’t buy those for decent consumption. I had a M40i which would do mid to high 20’s and mid to high 30’s on long journey, but loved the B58. S58 is a beast in the new M3/M4. How are you finding the ride? As some think it is quite harsh

On a steady run on 60mph roads it’ll do mid 30‘s mpg, but that’ll drop to mid 20’s on winding roads with a lot of braking / accelerating. I expected 20mpg or less with the caravan hitched but not too bad. I have a managed to (legally) overtake cars on a couple of occasions too :tearsofjoy:

Running in service this morning and as soon as it was warmed up i booted it, wow this thing flys top end! I see what people mean when they say it needs the whole rev range, thing just shifts!!!!

Ride is brutal lol. I had my RS3 on Emmanuel springs and it was harsh, but i had expected it to be slightly better. I mean its fine 9 times out of 10, but when you get on a bumpy road or the cobbles of Edinburgh its actually laughable. My wife was beside me the other day and she was being thrown about like a rag doll ha, she commented...nothing nice sadly ha.

Impressive!

I can only see long term MPG, currently 18.0 now, but would quite like something similar to my RS where you could also see short term without it fluctuating every 2 seconds.

If it’s the same as mine, and probably Nevs too, the different settings for mpg (trip, since last refuel, long term etc) are in the car settings on the central display. Took me a while to work it out. You can then choose what to show either on the dash or the widgets on the multiple screens on the central display.

Booted it the other day, the thing just revs and revs!!! Feels like it revs to 9k lol, thing just goes top end, fast enough for what I need, but stage 1 630bhp in this thing must be nothing short of stupid

Yes, can definitely get trip, etc…
