I am glad for you you’ve decided to wait. A good RS3 will be a step up in costs over your S3, so make sure you buy wisely.
look forward to seeing the pictures when you do find the right one.
I contacted Opie oils to ask about 5 litres of Castrol and this is their reply:
Thank you for the message in, unfortunately the Long life III fluid is designed for the dealership rather than the public, you will find this is why it's only available in the 1 Litres for top up's etc.
That's the 367hp model isn't it? I think I would hang on for the 400hp version or just get a Golf R (95% of the performance and a better drive, albeit not the sound) - £25k would get you mint one from a VW dealer.
For info I have an RS3 (2018) and a Golf R (2016) and believe me you wouldn't be...
Are you employed in a very secure job where your salary is virtually guaranteed to increase each year and comes with a really good pension eg school teacher, lawyer or doctor?
If you are then maybe you should go for it?
Hey, I'm only 48 - though when you're 21 you probably think that's old!
In all seriousness, get a nice-ish car like a golf gti and put the rest if your money towards your future (house etc). An RS3 will bankrupt you.
I hate to say it, and obviously I know nothing about your financial position, but are you sure you can really afford it?
A few years ago I moved from a TT diesel to a Golf R. I now have an RS3 (2018 car), and believe me it's a 'league up' in terms of running costs.
