    Time to get rid

    John, I see they let you leave your wheels right outside the door of the Lobster Pot while your visiting ;-)

    Looking at two RS3's - anyone know them?

    I get the distinct feeling regardless of input from others on the forum you've got your heart set on the Daytona one. How about a 62 Plate Daytona with only 7K on the clock and 11 months warranty for 1K less than the SCC one ? Previously owned by one of the guys on the RS3 Official Owners Club...

    New Summer Rims

    Nope, still 19s with standard offset (almost) and 225 rears / 235 fronts Goodyear asym IIs all round. I think the increased level of open space between the spokes makes them look like 20s.

    New Summer Rims

    I thought that since I was putting on summer rubber (now its warmed up) I'd change the rims too. What do you think ?

    Manual Gearbox mode

    Sounds a bit drastic. I guess I'll just have to avoid slowing down :-)

    Manual Gearbox mode

    I'll probably get told that if I wanted a manual I should have bought one but ...................... Does anybody know if its possible to stop the gearbox in the RS3 from automatically changing down to first at slow speeds when in manual mode ? The RS has enough low down torque that if your...

    Summer Wheels - but which ones ?

    Thanks Dave. They look like the sort of rims I'm looking for. Would you mind giving me a clue as to the make/model please ?

    Summer Wheels - but which ones ?

    Thanks John, I'd love to have another set of rotors but at £3.5k with tyres its £1.5K more than I can afford just now (I've only just bought the car). I understand that my insurers may class non-OEM wheels as a modification but as long as they are the same spec then hopefully the uplift in...

    Summer Wheels - but which ones ?

    Give it 4-5 weeks and it will be time to switch back to summer rubber. Since the tyres on the car when I bought it needed replacing and we were in the winter months I ended up putting winter tyres on the original rotors. So I now have a choice of either getting the winters replaced with...

    One to play with - Porche Cayman and a workhorse for the winter - Volvo XC90

    Its done. I'm official.

    B***er ! Too big for the RS3. Thanks anyway.

    Its done. I'm official.

    I love the wheels - what are they please ? When its time for summer tyres again I will need a new set of rims and they would go nicely with the Misano red. Cheers.
