    TTRS potential purchase!

    I did a search and couldn’t find anything so apologies if these questions have already been asked! I’ve been away from Audi for a few years latest being a abarth 124 spider (which I loved!) I’m looking for something a bit quicker this time and I’ve always loved the look of the TTRS and of...

    Looking for a weekend motor...

    Cheers guys - not really one answer as I though - I'll have to go out and test drive them I think! Interested that no one has picked RS4 or TTRS on an Audi forum?

    Looking for a weekend motor...

    I've been putting this off for ages but nearly in the position to get a weekend car! Looking at £15-20k budget, don't care about mpg as it will be used at weekends and maybe 1 commute a week. Don't have kids so don't necessarily need the space! Looking for performance, wow factor when putting...

    TTRS opinions needed

    Firstly apologies for posting what has probably been done a million times! I tried the search and it kept coming back with an error, being impatient I decided to post! I'm an ex 8L s3 owner, loved the car but sold it to try a few others and somehow ended up with an mx5 (I apologise!).... I'm...

    S1 vs S3

    Thanks for all your responses! I think the S1 is the car for me then. I don't need the space - I have a diesel clio if I need that! so this is purely for enjoyment and weekend drives really! Had a few PCP quotes and the options don't seem to make a lot of difference to the GFV on PCP so monthly...

    S1 vs S3

    Thanks for the input, S1 sounds like the way to go for me - just want something fun! Couple of questions as I haven't driven one - what does it sound like? My Abarth used to have amazing sound through the 4 pipes out the back, does the S1 have a bit of character there - any cracks or bangs? Also...

    S1 vs S3

    I've been looking at my next move back into an Audi! Been away a few years since I traded my 8L S3 in for an Abarth 500 both of which were awesome cars in their own right! I since bought a house and had to downscale into a cheap and cheerful hairdresser mobile (MX5 MK2) :-( I've had enough of...

    Pipe dream - owning a b7 rs4

    Brilliant, thanks for the advice so far, much appreciated. my other question is around the different body styles available. i don't want the estate as its not really needed so its between saloon and cab. I am guessing the only difference is the cabs handling being slightly worse due to the...

So far it isn't sounding as horrific as I thought it might be! Brodster - feel free to hijack this thread as we basically want the...

    Pipe dream - owning a b7 rs4

    Hi, had an 8l s3 up until march this year when I decided to get an abarth 500. I am missing the power of the s3 and initially thought about getting an 8 p s3 when I'm 25 next march. After research I have seen you can pick up a b7 RS4 for around 20k! iam now considering RS4 as toy car and some...

    Hi all, Posting on behalf of a friend who has a old tt. the reason I'm posting here is I had an s3 and everyone was very helpful, also I understand that the lights are similar. anyways, as I'm sure many know a common problem is lights pointing too low. My friends car went into the garage and...
