    RSQ3 RSQ3 Trade Time

    Hahaha..... I’m just trying to see the year out! I will be lucky to get to December, certainly no more! If I get that far I’ve beaten my previous records. :thumbs up:

    RSQ3 RSQ3 Trade Time

    Honestly, I loved the RSQ3. My only negative I suppose was the throttle lag, you can drive around that but you shouldn’t have too! I think it’s emissions related from what I’ve read and it effects the new S4s also. Either way it was a little annoying tho. Overall great car. Fun to drive...

    RSQ3 RSQ3 Trade Time

    Good points above and whilst I haven’t quite decided what to get yet I have just got rid of the RSQ3. Webuyanycar offered £48k and after £75 admin fee and £100 for a single 1mm stone chip right at the bottom of the number (have to laugh as it was barely visible!) it means I got pretty much the...

    RSQ3 RSQ3 Trade Time

    I went down the road of 2 cars before, for me it was a very expensive way of doing things, double tax, double insurance, and both cars depreciating. I pay £600 p/mth now on the RSQ3 so can’t afford to keep it AND get something else to run, it just isn’t worth it. Mrs would go nuts as well...

    RSQ3 RSQ3 Trade Time

    Hey! No problem at all. Not worried by the reply, negative or otherwise..... but didn’t actually seem that bad! I owned the 2019 RS5 previously so certainly not new to the A5 or it’s size in any way. I would prefer to be higher up I must admit, but this wouldn’t be a factor in any car decision...

    RSQ3 RSQ3 Trade Time

    Well, we all knew the day was coming soon - especially with my track record! But whats next!? ........ ........ Well...... get ready for the let down! After going back and forth on various vehicles I’ve decided on a 2021 A5 Edition 1 35 TDI. With work travels once again and limited public...

    RSQ3 RSQ3 & Macan - Faceoff

    lol. If I had that kind of money then I’d be going RS6. Size isn’t an issue for me. We have a family car for the main, the car I drive is purely me for fun and when COVID changes I do travel round the Country for work..... so I’m always mindful of mileage but I don’t let that dictate the car I...

    RSQ3 RSQ3 & Macan - Faceoff

    Thanks for that, interesting read! Funnily enough, my S5 had the same lag the RSQ3 does although I know entirely different engines! When I moved to the RS5 the lag was pretty much gone. I had hoped the RSQ3 would be the same, finely tuned and just as responsive being an RS model. It’s something...

    Absolutely agree! Im never going to make money so I just try and limit my loss, that’s all there is to it, nothing more, nothing less lol

    RSQ3 RSQ3 & Macan - Faceoff

    Well that’s the problem, there is no car out there I want to keep..... just not interested. I go through approx 3 cars every 12 months, and why not, I can so I do. I don’t spend money on anything else so that’s my guilty pleasure. Take your point on the S3 and RS3!

    RSQ3 RSQ3 & Macan - Faceoff

    Hey, thanks guys! Only just got around to reading these..... I agree, the sound of the RSQ3 is great, the engine noise is unique so not faulting that OR in fact anything about the car. If I wanted to comment on any negatives it would be the turbo lag and missing the pops and crackles...

    Without going off topic, what price did you get the RS4 for? Been looking recently and weighing up an RS4 or a Merc CLA45S. I’d rather stick with Audi I think, but early days and currently both seem more than I’m willing to pay at the moment. Thought dealers would be doing great deals to move...

    RSQ3 Service costs

    So this is interesting...... Firstly the prices: £322 £320 £313 £311 That a range from Hull Audi down to Salisbury Audi, didn’t see the point in calling any others as they are all similar; so the price is the price. NOW - I was told that they find it really strange it needs an oil change...

    RSQ3 Service costs

    Don’t forget that I bought from the dealer with a previous owner having done 900 miles since March, not sure how they drove it but were an older retired couple? I don’t do much mileage myself, some short journeys but by short it gets warm and still a 14 mile round trip even if school runs. But...

    Happy new year all. Hope it was a good one despite restrictions! Considering I’ve owned my car all of 3 months my ‘change oil in 25 days’ notice has popped up. It’s not even a year old yet, only covered 3k miles so not sure what triggers this. Either way, Audi have quoted £330 for an oil...

    Don’t see how that figure can be correct!? How long ownership is/was the 69 plate RS4? my RS5 was £72k new, 6 months later £49k, so I fail to see how an RS4 has lost ONLY £5k!

    Just did the same, mine came back at £48,700 So there’s a £6k reduction in 6 weeks roughly :haha::haha::haha:

    RSQ3 RSQ3 & Macan - Faceoff

    Yea, I’m expecting 47-48k as a guess come feb/March. As you say, depends on how or if the market is hit. Also will depend what options there are to change into anyway. One way or another each of us justify the loss (or find the extra) in the excitement of buying another car, if I can afford it...
