    I saw one Nardo FL - not sure if it was saloon or sport back in central london a few weeks ago.

    Also a few weeks ago I sat behind a Nardo TTRS and it sounded amazing. I think those of you with RS3 that complain about the noise need to be in a car behind it or standing by the road to really appreciate it.

    Seen two RS3 Sportbacks today - a grey one in Banbury and then a blue one near Chipping Norton.

    Anyone on here?

    Agreed when I had my panoramic roof it did sound loud especially under a bit of a right foot. I think the fl has better sound proofing than the pfl. Could be wrong

    Always wonder why not. Plenty on Autotrader if people want to find one to clone. And the owner clearly isn't to worried with such a memorable plate!

    I completely agree that people obviously see it out and about or on some adverts, but if someone has a shopping list of cars, they can come on here which I assume they would, they can find a reg and tag it back to a spec and get the address all pretty easily, I just think posting on here makes their lives a lot easier to clone or nick our cars.

    Would be easier to go on Autotrader than trawl through a zillion posts to find a reg!

    Amazing what a quick bit of code can do on a forum,

    The RS3OC site also says no full registrations online. Just a friendly bit of advice that's all it probably doesn't stop them, but it definitely helps them on places like this.

    I think dealers and insurers will scout forums more than thieves
    As said thrives just go on auto trader or PistonHeads classifieds

    The car spends its life in the centre of the city for all to see

    I put w pic of my golf above with reg plate I care not if I’m honest

    Personally I'd rather scumbags aren't able to google search and find my plate on line when looking for clone plates eg

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?rlz...c.1.64.psy-ab..0.6.381...0i30k1.0.pZHpjW1NF8Q

    Which is why I always scrub it before posting an image.
