    Got it........
    picked RS3 up yesterday, then drove from Manchester to Glasgow for her maiden voyage


    See the fullsize version at: A72BAAB3-2FBE-4D50-9308-E3C4F4993BB1-144-000000087AA03D7C.jpg photo by robbiemacrs | Photobucket


    Hope the image works:thumbsup:

    Going to have to get used to other drivers getting excited and trying what can only be described as heroic manoeuvres, my car in the winter sun looks like an angry polar bear.......... Can't get over the acceleration, I swear it's like Firefox the movie 'think it, and the plane will do it'

    The major problem I've got at the moment is I can't sleep, this not good...... Going to have to calm down

    Goodnight everyone

    Suzuka62,

    how's it going..... If you're experience with the new car is half as good as mine then you're winning:yahoo:......
    The car is incredible and yes the breaks squeal....... Don't care, minor flaw outweighed by the ggggggreatest engine
    ever.

    Getting a lot of unwanted attention out on the roads, challenged everyday and I mean every day...... keep calm and carry on.......

    got to go heading up north

    Achtung...

    Glad you're enjoying the beast!! Im totally hooked to the sound of the engine and exhaust. Whenever i find an opportunity i stick it in s mode and manual - absolutely savage, especially launch control!! The other day i discovered that in manual mode the gear doesnt change until you press the paddle or shift up with the gear stick. Sounded crazy!!

    Lovely mate, there is one sitting beside my lowly TT just now-jealous doesn't cut it.

    I'm torn between a new S3 or a second hand RS3 DSG. The interior of the new cars is great but the noise off these I can't ignore

    Alright Tel........ Tricky one pal, new S3 is lovely and the interior is gorgeous.
    Only problem is they're gonna make thousands of them as well as similar looking hi-spec S-Line models, black edition Tfsi the list goes on and on and on...........
    Not sure of this fact but I'm sure that the RS3 is limited to roughly 1000no. In the U.K, exclusive without a doubt.
    In the real world the power delivery from the 2.5 twin-turbo engine is nothing short of mental..... and as you mentioned the noise
    is addictive:eyebrows:
    Anyone in the know clocks it straight away........ and those that don't get a freakin fright.
    Running costs are o.k, nearly getting 30mph on motorway journeys, cost £400.00 less to ensure than my Audi TT Coupe Quattro!
    Don't test drive the RS3 unless you're serious about getting one, because once you've driven it I'm afraid everything else might feel like a compromise.
    Keep us posted........

    cheers for the correction, could have sworn it had twin Turbo's...... I'd look under the bonnet, but what's the point you could strap a couple of kippers on top of the engine and call them turbo's and I'd be nodding my head:rtfm:
    I'll check and counter check my information from here on in, don't want a visit from the Audi owners club............ ha ha ha ha geek alert.....

    A second hand RS3 TerryCTR, if you don't then you WILL regret it: the RS3 is so much more - engine, brakes, gearbox.
