    Must admit though, IMO it looks sweet in the red/black look and I like the rear lights.

    As does every Red fully loaded Audi mate and Tango Red doesn't look as bold nor as vibrant as the photo you posted [​IMG]

    The sliver trim isn’t helping that one either, needs the black trim. Very annoying that Audi don’t make it available straight away.

    Yup, originally wanted tango red, but the silver trim doesn’t work IMO so ended up with Navarra blue which works well with silver trim IMO.

    Wow the interior plastic looks awful!

    Shiny black plastic ****, especially the centre console with the gear selector!

    Can’t believe the S3 comes with such bland wheels either, wouldn’t even expect something that ugly on an S-Line.

    Glad I didn’t wait for this ****

    I was holding out for the S3 Vorsprung to replace my troublesome A6 as I loved the 2018 S3 that I replaced with the A6 last year. However I had a BMW M235i Grand Coupe delivered today as I got a good deal and only 2.9% finance. It’s an amazing car and initial impressions are it beats my old S3, also spec wise not too far way from the Vorsprung S3 and nearly £8k cheaper!

    It’s such a bonkers price tag for a car which isn’t materially different to the previous version.

    Blimey, that’s a fair discount. TT interior is a lot nicer place to be than the 8V and definitely the 8Y. For that kind of money would it be worth considering the full fat RS?

    I know it’s not your colour but the engine must be tempting.

    It’s not about the RRP, as stated large discount available on the TTS that won’t be offered on an RS model. At £54k a TTS is madness, but at £46k it actually looks like a nice package.

    Yeah I acknowledged the discount, the RS I linked to was 2nd hand but similar price.

    I had a MK3 TT, actually preferred it to the S3 even though it was a diesel. Either in TTS or TTRS it will be one hell of a car and still looks as fresh as when it was released.

    if you could sort your own finance it might be worth a look, as the sellers rate is way too high. With it being almost 2 years old warranty running out in a year would also concern me. Nice mileage for the age

    Agree, plenty of low % loans available now and with an engine like that I would consider an extended warranty for sure.

    These silly prices are really putting me off brand new cars at the moment. Still no idea what I’m going to get next.

    Me neither, I did go through a phase of wanting to change mine a few months ago. I came close to changing to an M2 competition twice as the deals on then were great, I still regret not getting one to a certain extent.

    My TCR is only 18 months old, and I’ve had no issues with it and I still enjoy driving it. I may just hang on to it for another 18 months unless a deal too good to pass on comes up.

    To be honest I would rather spend money on holidays (when we can travel again) rather than on a deposit for a car that I don’t really need.

    Car money is going on house improvements at the moment, not been into the office since March now, sold the RF in the summer as wasn’t being driven

    I’m leaning to a 4x4 as we live in the countryside, possibly a Q5 or a Volvo XC40/60.

    Really like the TCR’s, wouldn’t swap that for the latest VW Group offerings.

    Been working from home myself since March, unlikely to ever be in the office more than 2 days a week even when we return to some form of normality. Another reason why a new car wasn’t the most sensible idea, probably covered about 2k miles since last March.

    I’ve run out of home improvements :grinning: about the only thing left that I need is a new shed.

    Agree with you both ... if I’d known all this covid stuff was coming I might not have got my A45 as it’s just not getting enough use.
    That’s where something like a Golf club spot could provide a nice balance of car enjoyment vs £ outlay. Putting £ into the house / holidays / savings becoming my preference also.

    Not interested in a new or used TTRS... mate the TTS Vorsprung with 320 ps is more than enough for me its the only car that l have really considered that ticks every box apart from it not having a pan roof of which l am willing to concede,it put a huge smile on my face when l sat it in one in the showroom last year ....blows the 8y S3 out of the water....in every way, the Porsche Boxster l optioned was £660@ month £10k down but once you begin to scrutinize what your really getting for that kinda of money ie 296 bhp **** sounding exhaust outdated user interface controls,many blank switches on the center consul ...lack of interesting paint colours personal preference.... though...? Your Just buying the badge as far as the 718 goes

    The TTS is a very nice car and for one who is not interested in boot size or rear seats, it makes a lot of sense.

    Agree, that spec of Boxster doesn’t stack up. I really like the MK3 TT, it’s a head Turner and they’re great to drive.

    I genuinely preferred the TDI ultra TT I had over the S3, nicer cabin, looks and it handled better. I test drove a TTS before the S3 but the numbers didn’t work at the time.

    You will love it, just avoid tight spaces, the doors are long and deep.

    Back seats down they are surprisingly practical, easily get a couple of decent size cases and Jassy’s hair straighteners.
