I'm possibly looking into the RS3 as a replacement for my M3 (e92) and wanted a bit of advice. Cut a long story short we were targeted for a burglary due to the car so I'm looking for something less lairy for the driveway and also something more practical. I travel to customers and the 23mpg (mostly motorway) is killing me ... that and shoehorning two kids into the back with associated gubbins that kids come with.
I'm booked in for a test drive tomorrow so I can experience the car first hand but I'm interested to know if (big if) performance wise I'd notice the drop in BHP? Do any members of the forum have tin lids and how do you find practicality? Buckets ... positive or not for someone that does a lot of miles. Is there any options that are a must have or anything I need to look out for? I guess most importantly ... does the RS3 attract a lot of attention? I'm looking for something that is very off the radar and not going to peering out of the window every second to make sure the thing is still there.
Cheers for your help and look forward to your advice.
