    Neil you just need to think a little more laterally. RS3copilot's T-shirt would surely make a useful polishing cloth and Tom Ford makes the suits for James Bond in Skyfall which brings us neatly back to Aston Martin.

    Clear enough links to me, I saw nothing at all smutty in the links....:laugh:

    You're RIGHT Neil: had I not had a couple of 'likes' I would have deleted my entry; anyway, my laundry has improved since...:blow:

    No you have my apologies as does Ben. If it we're not for Mark educating me in your very clever and deep meaningful ways of keeping on theme I would have been highly offended :whistle2:

    hi all . going to view a 62 plate suzuka gray with 20 k miles on it this weekend has anyone got any tips on what to look out for . i spoke to audi today and the sales guy said the car only came in a couple of days ago and needs some work carrying out . had some photos sent to me of it and it looks a very nice car . i did notice on the one picture of the front end he sent that the drives side bottom vent is missing also the washer jet cover is missing ? just thought it was a bit strange ?

    They could be doing a bit of local paintwork on the front, Suzuka Grey is a nice colour it looks better in the flesh .Check the tyres are a decent brand and plenty of tread left,when i was looking for mine i saw one advertised with Avons.

    If they're doing some spray work on it, get them to put a decent top coat on rather than leaving it with a "primer" finish :icon_thumright:

    It's a long story........
    Suzuka is ok, but next to 2 x white ones it just looks dirty white!
    It's a bit like a nice new white sock and one that's been worn for a few months and doesn't ever wash as clean as it first was :yes:

    Ha ha ha, the banter is back...and you can keep your hands of my 'pink' wheel too before you start.

    [​IMG]

    Is it true that when you take your Suzuka motor to the local 'eastern European of your choice' car wash they all do a runner because they think you're coming back to complain they washed all the paint off with truck wash again? I'm only partly joking too you should see the mess they've madde of my mates 3 series (company beater), whatever stuff they use to has washed the numbers off his front plate!

    Nope it's just some banter that started between Mr Freeze and Robbiemac when he was around, no harm intended if you like it go for it. Mt RS3 has takenm some flak for having too much bling but you know I like it that way, the great thing is pretty much all RS3s are slightly different.

    Sorry hny, didn't mean to put you off Suzuka. We all have different tastes and likes. It's only Banter at the end of the day if you end up with an RS3, it makes you one of a select group of 750!

    If you like it, buy it.

    Suzuka grey IS liked a lot h n y +, it's just banter.

    I much prefer Suzuka grey to white, but then mine's blue. Though if I were talking to Mr. Freeze I'd definitely prefer white - as Mr. Freeze is much taller than me, even though I've only met him once.

    And when I see a Daytona RS3 I go all-gooey again, as that's what I'd have had given the choice. But then there's that Misano red and/or the black, wow!

    To be truthful h n y +, I haven't seen a single RS3 I didn't like, whatever the colour...

    well just got back . i had a good look around the car it had a few marks here and there not much to worry about then we went for a test drive . i got in the car and it was all pretty much the same as the 09 s3 i had a while back . so i set of down the road and quickly came to understand what they are all about . the sound of the engine is great . got it on a straight and give it some me and the guy looked at each other at the same time and laughed . i really enjoyed it and soon forgot about the interior with that noise . we get back and start talking about the car i ask him when will the car be ready to go and he says he is not sure as they are waiting on parts . on to the body work the little marks here and there and he says they do not plan on putting them rite :think: which i was shock at . then i got to the mileage on it for the age of the car thinking barging tool . he did not move an inch . i give him a offer and he said because it as not been in long they can not do anything with the price . he offered me 12 months tax i said no and walked away maybe in the next couple of days i might hear something . i really liked suzuka grey on the car the only thing i did not like was the silver grill think it would be better with the black one . all in all bit pi$$ed off did not get a deal but will see what the next few days bring :thumbsup:

    Take care h n y +...

    It's all down to the individual of course but I would NOT have bucket seats in my RS3 at any price, as getting in and out of those high squab seats for me is a right-pain in the wotsits.

    OK, I like 'em (ish) when I'm sat in 'em, but overall the standard 'comfort' seats suit me and mine best.

    I agree 100% with what John says and also they reduce the cabin space ,I liked the look of them until i sat in them and realised they were not practical for me and chose the comfort seats.

    Also, depending on how broad your beam is you definitely won't like them - I didn't fit in them.

    I've read the spec Wayne and it certainly looks good, however, with the RS3, I remember you reporting (a PM to me maybe) that the failure of Audi to address (among other things) the saggy leather bucket seat bottom (and others have too) and squeaky bucket seats (and others have too) on a relatively new car, younger than mine anyway, as being one of the reasons/complaints that led Audi to offer you the RS4. AND, on another RS3 Forum, there have been guys wanting to swap buckets for comforts... Like I say, it's all down to individual choice and 'h n y +' may prefer the 'electric' option...

    The seats in the RS4 have a different designed seat squab, so hopefully that should sort out the problem of baggy leather. However I like the buckets, IMHO it's what makes an RS, however I appreciate that not everyone likes them or can live with them. :thumbsup:
    Squeaky seats were sorted and we've had no further problems with them, so that fix worked unlike some of the others...:tumble:

    Anyway it's days are numbered with the RS4 now at the dealers it should be in my garage in a couple of weeks time. Then just waiting the okay to drive again. :racer:

    Yes have an RS3 and a 4, but not both at home. RS4 should be home in a couple of weeks.
