hey guys first post i always thought would be in the s3 section but it seems not,
ive been looking for an s3 black edition s-tronic for months with my local dealer, last week i basically agreed a deal on a phantom black sportback with comfort pack and open sky, i was over the moon and was just told that id have to wait till friday to pay deposit etc, well friday came i got a call asking could i just go in the following morning as it would be easier.. an hour later i had a call to tell me the dealer who had the car had sold it even though it had been requested and promised to me.
I was extremely unhappy and asked them to sort something out for me and the only thing that could be done was i was offered a similar spec glacier white for basically 30 quid a month extra, i like white but i wouldnt want to own it and especially not for extra money.
now i have been told that there literally arent any more s3 BE sportbacks available at all anymore because they are out of production (same with 3drs) so have been faced with the reality that i cannot simply buy a car i want, i want BE and s-tronic..........................
The last dealer i spoke to today after ringing everyone i could to see if any could find anything else for me made a suggestion to me
Why not buy an RS3? my inital reaction was because of costs, its a much more expensive car, his reply was hardly.. its got much greater residual value and he feels he will get me a deal pretty much close to what i want to pay (car on PCP) now ive checked with my insurance and it seems the quotes are very similar to S3 if not cheaper so thats fine, im guessing servicing is hardly any different and i may get free servicing offered and tax is going to be the same, i will likely keep the car for 2 years so itl cost me one years tax maybe a set of tyres and possibly a service i hardly see much difference to an S3 here, am i right or wrong?
last thing is fuel. ive had plenty of fast motors evo 8 mr fq320, mazda 3 mps aero, mkv golf gti in recent years also drive a 2008 tt 2.0tfsi
in the golf and tt i return roughly 38mps from the dis
in the mazda its not quite as up to date but it shows around 29
the evo was not significant haha
realisticly how much different will the rs3 be to what ive had and in comparison to the S3 how much will it differ,
i know it asked alot i have sifted through the forums to check but i want more specific answers to relate to myself
much appreciate responses guys.. been so stressful all this and itd be great to get into a new car asap
