Neil you just need to think a little more laterally. RS3copilot's T-shirt would surely make a useful polishing cloth and Tom Ford makes the suits for James Bond in Skyfall which brings us neatly back to Aston Martin.

Clear enough links to me, I saw nothing at all smutty in the links....:laugh:

Guys, I hate to burst your bubbles but I'm not understanding the theme, as in "I'm continuing the theme" here.

My post was about used cars, what was yours?

I would hate to think you could use this thread to show mildly erotic photos for your own personal gratification, without any link to used cars!

No you have my apologies as does Ben. If it we're not for Mark educating me in your very clever and deep meaningful ways of keeping on theme I would have been highly offended :whistle2:

They could be doing a bit of local paintwork on the front, Suzuka Grey is a nice colour it looks better in the flesh .Check the tyres are a decent brand and plenty of tread left,when i was looking for mine i saw one advertised with Avons.

If they're doing some spray work on it, get them to put a decent top coat on rather than leaving it with a "primer" finish :icon_thumright:

Ha ha ha, the banter is back...and you can keep your hands of my 'pink' wheel too before you start.



Is it true that when you take your Suzuka motor to the local 'eastern European of your choice' car wash they all do a runner because they think you're coming back to complain they washed all the paint off with truck wash again? I'm only partly joking too you should see the mess they've madde of my mates 3 series (company beater), whatever stuff they use to has washed the numbers off his front plate!

Nope it's just some banter that started between Mr Freeze and Robbiemac when he was around, no harm intended if you like it go for it. Mt RS3 has takenm some flak for having too much bling but you know I like it that way, the great thing is pretty much all RS3s are slightly different.

Sorry hny, didn't mean to put you off Suzuka. We all have different tastes and likes. It's only Banter at the end of the day if you end up with an RS3, it makes you one of a select group of 750!

If you like it, buy it.

oh dear suzuka grey does not seemed to be liked by a lot . :think:

Suzuka grey IS liked a lot h n y +, it's just banter.

I much prefer Suzuka grey to white, but then mine's blue. Though if I were talking to Mr. Freeze I'd definitely prefer white - as Mr. Freeze is much taller than me, even though I've only met him once.

And when I see a Daytona RS3 I go all-gooey again, as that's what I'd have had given the choice. But then there's that Misano red and/or the black, wow!

To be truthful h n y +, I haven't seen a single RS3 I didn't like, whatever the colour...

Take care h n y +...

It's all down to the individual of course but I would NOT have bucket seats in my RS3 at any price, as getting in and out of those high squab seats for me is a right-pain in the wotsits.

OK, I like 'em (ish) when I'm sat in 'em, but overall the standard 'comfort' seats suit me and mine best.

I agree 100% with what John says and also they reduce the cabin space ,I liked the look of them until i sat in them and realised they were not practical for me and chose the comfort seats.

lol....it's still sat in the garage John...:asskicking:

The new one also has buckets....:eiertritt:

I've read the spec Wayne and it certainly looks good, however, with the RS3, I remember you reporting (a PM to me maybe) that the failure of Audi to address (among other things) the saggy leather bucket seat bottom (and others have too) and squeaky bucket seats (and others have too) on a relatively new car, younger than mine anyway, as being one of the reasons/complaints that led Audi to offer you the RS4. AND, on another RS3 Forum, there have been guys wanting to swap buckets for comforts... Like I say, it's all down to individual choice and 'h n y +' may prefer the 'electric' option...

The seats in the RS4 have a different designed seat squab, so hopefully that should sort out the problem of baggy leather. However I like the buckets, IMHO it's what makes an RS, however I appreciate that not everyone likes them or can live with them. :thumbsup:
Squeaky seats were sorted and we've had no further problems with them, so that fix worked unlike some of the others...:tumble:

Anyway it's days are numbered with the RS4 now at the dealers it should be in my garage in a couple of weeks time. Then just waiting the okay to drive again. :racer:
