    Oops, bought one :)

    Well, wasn't expecting to be writing this post today but I did a little impulse buy today!

    An Ibis RS3!! Woohoo! Brand spanker with 47 miles on the clock

    I'd had my brand new S3 for 5 months and loved the car but the pull of the RS was too much to take!

    Traded the S3 in for the RS3 and got the deal I was after so yey me lol!

    Here she is, pick her up Tuesday!

    The engines are very tight when new, really tight, mine opened up at 2k miles and having just turned 3k miles its producing noticeably more instant grunt low down

    its a twin scroll turbo, so easy to get confused with twin turbo, works in a similar fashion to having a small and large turbo Audi TT RS Exhaust turbocharger - YouTube
