    This one ain't too shabby mate. For the price it's a safe bet till the new shape is released.. As for extras like you said not much out there on the RS3 saloons.

    I take it this would be a long term car rather than a stopgap purchase?

    Why would anyone want to go shooting unless it’s clay pigeons?

    Cheers Sean:thumbs up:
    Looks like they give decent results at a reasonable cost. Was tempted to do the S3 last year but never got round to doing it. Had a quote from an APR franchised garage near me and the quote from memory was just over £600. Also around £450 for the gearbox tune.
    I know there is a lot of discussion on the forum regarding which tuner is best for the 2.0 VAG engines.Will have to look up what the consensus is on that.
    Cheers buddy

    I’d say remap if you don’t care about warranty. JB4 is a decent option if you want to remove for a Dealer visit.

    Although if you can buy the ABT tune from a dealer that is basically a plug and play box that sits on the battery top, go look at the pictures of a Cupra St-R Leon with ABT upgrade fitted and you’ll see it under the bonnet on top of the battery.

    Do you think it's a big enough of a change to warrant the extra £££ to change though?

    There's a lot to think about.It was one of the reasons why I never went ahead with the S3 tune.
    With my car being relatively new I'm not sure if I will go ahead yet. We'll see lol.:shrug:
    The reason I was asking specifically about ABT was that it's a factory option to the Cupra brand and would've thought it was a safer bet than others?:readit:

    The 5 cylinder engine is a big attraction don't you think? Combine that with a full spec would be the cherry on the cake:yes:

    When it first came out I was offered a test drive by the guy that sold me the S3, I just didn't think it was worth the extra money for a bit more noise! I think if I were going around £40k or more on a used car I'd go for something like a Porsche 718 Cayman or a Jag https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202008132439209?

    New RS3 saloon £48k no options or:

    https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202006240451190?

    I just think it looks the money! But we all have our own ideas...I just think @jassyo06 would suit a 2 seater sports car...don't ask me why I just do :)

    The Cayman is great fun! As part of the VW/Audi family they are well put together and reliable.

    Between those two examples the main thing to consider is depreciation. The 2020 Jag would be my choice in the colour of the 2018 one.Depreciation would be more compared to the porker I would've thought? Interesting results on the Autotrader expert reviews compared to owners reviews on the 2018 Jag and the porker.:readit:
    Seeing as I have my SUV head on eh @jassyo06 and I could stretch the purse string a bit more this would be my choice.....

    For just under another £16k You could get this one

    Ok it's not exactly a two seater for old jassy boy lol but you would probably have a lot more fun in it. Especially on the school run:whistle2:

    Good thing with the Porsche is you can keep getting a warranty on it up to 14 years old! as you say price will drop slowly compared to most cars of the same value. He doesn't want an suv, he's not in the geriatric group yet! :p

    Thought the Rs3 shipped had sailed and 400 hp is of no interest to you as you get older :whistle2: Knew you still had it in you pal:icon thumright:

    I enquired about a fully loaded Rs3 last week in an exclusive colour unfortunately it had already sold .
    My reason is i just can't make my mind up if i can live with the new shapes interior .
