    Anybody considered jumping ship to Porsche?

    Car looks great there pal. I’m not worried about anything car wise mate lol they come they go. I did put a deposit on a GT4 but I just couldn’t go ahead with it, common sense kicked in and the costs were not justified IMHO, so I’m currently looking for a 981 Cayman GTS and I’m actually going to...

    Anybody considered jumping ship to Porsche?

    Did have a deposit on a GT4 but as daft as it sounds I couldn’t go ahead with it, I just thought it was a huge amount of coin I was spending so I stuck my sensible head on for once and I’m now pursuing a 981 Cayman GTS.

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    Both my M3 and M4 comps were tuned to 520+ bhp and it was most definitely not pointless, learning the power delivery and how to modulate it was all part of the “M” appeal, I could always put the power down it just wouldn’t go anywhere sometimes :welcoming: I assume you never really used MDM...

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    It’s a legacy thing and good engineering practice really but essentially it’s got to be to give the components a good chance to bed in using the thinner oil. Nowadays there’s probably hint of BMW marketing too but I’ve always changed the oil within 2k on any performance car I’ve owned, again...

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    The oil they put in the car from factory is a thinner oil than the usual 5w30 it will run on in its life. The RIS changes this oil from factory stuff to normal FS oil, the software is modulated to give full beans and LC is activated too, pretty sure the Diff oil is changed also.

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    As I said in the post I’ve owned both the M3/4 comp cars, there not limited to 101mph but once the car has had the RIS complete you can feel the urgency is on a completely different level.

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    Fuel economy no difference really, not that I ever really worried about that lol. Low end on the M4 comp is savage I think, from 1750 rpm it’s explosive to the redline! More lag in the RS3.

    Well I raced one when my RS3 was stock and yes eventually I overtook him but there wasn’t a great deal in it at all, it actually surprised me but then it is close to 300kg lighter

    Thing is with Porsche they hold there value so well that worrying about residuals isn’t really an issue like most other brands where you generally get your pants pulled down! Its about £10k of options, the above doesn’t include vat on the price of the car (£50k), the car starts at around £61k I...

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    Really looking forward to traveling to the Nurburgring and around Europe in it next year now. I went to the Ring in the RS3 this year and it was awesome, car performed great and no issues, even the fuel economy on the way there was a surprise considering we were pushing on. FL RS3 has to be one...

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    You stick a nice stage1 tune on the RS3 mate and it’s on another level.. I almost put a deposit on an M4cs on Friday, got offered a good deal on one but I thought I’d pay a visit to Porsche before I made up my mind and I’m so glad I did as it’s looking like the 718 Cayman GTS is getting ordered...

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    The M DCT is an incredible gearbox mate and if the car had done the run in service etc you would agree I guarantee that lol S-3 setting was and is generally avoided by most uses as it’s so brutal when it changes gear it makes the back end kick out and lose traction or if you pushing on around...

    M4 Competition vs RS3 FL

    Good write up mate. As someone who’s owned the M4 Comp and M3 Comp and RS3 I feel the RS3 is the better car allround, with the M3 following by a gnats ******* then the M4. Looks wise, the M3 is the car to have between the 3/4 as it just looks more purposeful, aggressive and I found it drove...

    718 Cayman GTS is looking inbound for 19 plate next year now. Completely different to anything I’ve owned to date, but for a weekend car it ticks all the right boxes.
