    13 plates, industry gossip and rumours?

    Curious as to owners thoughts?

    I've read that various manufacturers have reported an unexpected spike in Nov - Feb sales sales as many new car purchasers are preferring 62 and 63 plates to deliberately avoid the lucky 13?
    NOW...another similar RS3?!? ...Phantom Black RS3 with Buckets, folding auto dim mirrors, privacy glass, Bose, Alu inlays, light & rain sensor pack, black exhaust tips and now Scorpion decat pipes and MPSS rubber!

    REFUNDED - Phantom Black RS3 with Buckets, folding auto dim mirrors, privacy glass, Bose, Alu inlays, light and rain sensor pack.

    GONE - S3 SB BE - '10 plate in Ibis with Buckets; RNS-E; tech & comfort pack; Revo stage 1; Milltek TBE; BBS CK 19's in Anthracite on Asseymetric rubber!

    The easy answer:

    5058 H reg.jpg


    Advantages are: (1) no one knows how old the car is, always leaves them wondering, (2) it can be investment - I've never known them depreciate, (3) apparently makes the car less nickable - so PC Plod tells me (and to date he's not been wrong), and (4) available (LOL) - see audi-sport.net Misc Sales...

    If the dealers are really worried I'd be quite happy to drive around in a 13 plate R8 S-tronic for 6 months to show others it's safe... any interested dealers pm me lol

    On speaking with Audi today, I believe the RS3 is now officially discontinued and no new orders can be placed.....got to be good for residuals.
    NOW...another similar RS3?!? ...Phantom Black RS3 with Buckets, folding auto dim mirrors, privacy glass, Bose, Alu inlays, light & rain sensor pack, black exhaust tips and now Scorpion decat pipes and MPSS rubber!

    I must be the odd one out then , as I was hoping mine'd be delayed until 2013 so I could get the reg "RS13 RED"

    .. On second thoughts, would that just guarantee the car ending up as a ditch ornament?
    Red is the colour..
