    Rising used car prices.

    I have a limited run Porsche, so mine should hold its value regardless (hopefully)

    Rising used car prices.

    I loved mine enough to pay a professional detailed to look after mine, does this make mine even more valuable and rarer:glee:

    Rising used car prices.

    What the prices are today, will be very different in 18 months time. There are a number of factors driving the value of used cars up at the moment, when these factors no longer exist prices will adjust again back to normal levels. I wouldn‘t expect big profits, if any in around 12 to 18 months...

    Rising used car prices.

    All things suggest this is a temporary situation, likely to last another 18 months. So by the time your balloon payment is due, the value of your car is more than likely going to be back to normal levels.

    Purchased wrong spacers

    Really? Bit of an overreaction. Assuming it was just his decision of course.

    Purchased wrong spacers

    Hardly childish word picking from me, that is exactly what you said. Maybe you need to learn how to articulate yourself better, rather than posting up unsubstantiated rubbish that is solely based upon your opinion and not on any factual information. And you only have to search through this...

    Purchased wrong spacers

    You have “told” me nothing, you may have written something. But that doesn’t make it correct. You can have your opinion, and I can have mine.

    Purchased wrong spacers

    You can clearly see when a product has been well engineered and built, I am not for one second saying just pay a high price for something without researching it. But I like quality, and quality costs more. Simple as that.

    Purchased wrong spacers

    So, what you are saying is don’t send you details of good quality products. Just the cheap, badly made crap. Seriously, considering what spacers are doing and what part of the car they are being attached to, I would be buying the very best ones not the cheapest. Do you also fit cheap rubbish tyre?

    So the S3 has moved on...

    Ironically the lockdown and working from put me into my Porsche, as my ”normal” mileage would have be silly while running a Porsche. It means now that the miles I put on the car are enjoyable ones, don’t miss my previous cars at all. I’ve been offered more for the Porsche than I actually paid...

    New S3 ordered

    Well he has, and it was similar money from two dealers. The 2.9% has been around for a couple of years now with BMW for new cars, the 6 or 7% from Audi is ridiculous. And whatever BMW is doing, its working. I know 4 Audi drivers who are now BMW drivers. Why pay double the interest rate for an...

    New S3 ordered

    How much deposit on that? A friend of mine has just ordered a brand new fully loaded X3M for a similar monthly. It’s a £75k + car, so that seems expensive for what will probably be around a £60k car

    Rising used car prices.

    Yep, exactly the same issue with houses here at the moment as well. People selling their house because they have jumped up to stupid prices but so have the houses you will be trying to buy.

    Rising used car prices.

    I have been offered more for my 718 than I paid for it in April. Essentially if I sold it, minus fuel costs I would have driven it for free for the past few months. Problem is stock of anything similar is non existent, and ordering another takes forever.

    Wind noise and door closure issue

    I was never a fan of the R either to be honest, if I was after a hot hatch at the moment it would be the GTI Clubsport or Edition 45. However the new golfs seem to be experiencing pretty significant issues with the infotainment system and electronics as well, some of which VW have admitted they...

    Wind noise and door closure issue

    A friend of mine just bought a brand new Z4, it has plenty of modern tech (which actually works) and it doesn't feel like it has been "built to a cost" much like the current S3 does. A friend of a friend is in sales for Audi here, he told us that they can't give away S3's. They have 4 on sale...

    Wind noise and door closure issue

    I had the same wind noise issue on my 8V S3, and although Audi acknowledged it was there when then couldn’t fix it, it suddenly became a “feature“ of the car. I had the car for 3 years and it was never fixed, so I wouldn’t hold your breath thinking they will fix it eventually

    2019 S3....not no much S ???

    I had a PFL S3 saloon and all the S3 specific badging made it feel special above standard S lines, it even had a unique steering wheel. Come the FL all this was moved to standard S badging, at that point I was out and wouldn’t honestly buy an “S” product from Audi ever again

    S3 vs Golf8R

    Those two ****** Archie and TGE are as bad as each other, I can’t understand the size of their YouTube following. How anyone can listen to either of them for more than 2 seconds is beyond me.

    First look at RS3 in detail…

    The Edition 45 seems to have the detailing you would have expected on the clubsport, GTI stitched into the seats, nicely trimmed door cars etc. If you could lay your hands on one, in my opinion that would be the one to go for.
