At least you will have quattro to get you out of trouble, although if it's covered with snow and car has summer tyres, not so sure how helpful quattro is..
Picking up today at 11am.

Dull and gray, but no snow forecast!!!

I guess they will do all the paperwork outside and you will be on your way!

In the days of the 8v pre fl & fl ... this thread would be a hive of activity ... how things have changed !

I was thinking the same, previously there would have been post after post requesting photos.

If you can’t get any excitement on an Audi site full of Audi fanboys, it speaks volumes.

Does anyone remember that long running photo challenge? where you took a pic of your car against a certain backdrop whoever's turn it was had to leave another challenge.
Like you said it's little things like that which made the forum attractive for me.:yes:

Yep - really enjoyed that thread in the 8V section. As so many folk have moved on to other marques, I might resurrect it and see what happens......

How did the pickup go and are you pleased with it?

Remember forum rules: pics or it didn’t happen!

After around 8 months of ownership the time has come to sell up and move onto the bigger and better RS3 which is on order. The car is for sale if anyone's interested, I can send across pictures. Spec list is in my signature. I'm not in any rush to get rid of it as the ball is very much in my corner with regards to the used car market prices at the moment however if the money is right it will go before the RS3 comes.

Cheers

RS3 has always been the dream and now it’s made possible but if it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t be selling the S3.

I do like the Rs3 but I’m not sure I could bring myself to part with that much cash per month on a car! Think the S3 is about the max I’d want to spend on a car.

I was the same. My prev S3 was £375 and this one is £400 but thanks to the second hand market being as good as it is is partly how it’s possible to get the RS3 to help fund the deposit.

Mines £400 a month too, similar to yours. You reckon you can get an RS3 for similar money?

£550 a month in my new deal.

How much deposit on that?

A friend of mine has just ordered a brand new fully loaded X3M for a similar monthly.

It’s a £75k + car, so that seems expensive for what will probably be around a £60k car

£8000.

BMW having to offer ridiculous discounts and deposits to sell some of their cars at the moment and their interest rates are between 0%-2.9%. not sure how he’s managed to secure an X3M at less than £800 a month in all honesty! John Clark BMW are wanting £799 down and £799 a month with a £16k deposit contribution.

BMW and Mini recently raised their rates to 3.9% across the board. Some way cheaper than Audi’s 6.2%. Don’t think they are struggling to shift models either. Equally their delivery timescales whilst pushed out with this chip shortage still not too bad.

But yes, always big contributions on M’s and it shows in the used market, but means up front the monthlies are not vastly different to an RS3.

Well he has, and it was similar money from two dealers. The 2.9% has been around for a couple of years now with BMW for new cars, the 6 or 7% from Audi is ridiculous.

And whatever BMW is doing, its working. I know 4 Audi drivers who are now BMW drivers. Why pay double the interest rate for an Audi, particularly when the quality of their products have dropped with recent models.

Yeah don't get me wrong. BMW making some nice cars at the moment. My partner just took delivery of her 128ti a few months back and it's a nice bit of kit. There's a couple of things on the BMWs I prefer over the Audis.. the chunky steering wheel being the main one. My inlaws also have a X3M Comp which is lovely.

A year to the day/date I ordered my S3, I sold it to WeBuyAnyCar. Clocked up a total of 6006 miles and averaged 30.3mpg over those said miles. Got £38k for it in the end up so made huge profit over settlement.

Onto the RS3...

Started with nothing & still have most of it left.

Cracking deal mate, probably won’t see deals like that again. Things starting to even out now, slowly but surely.

Absolutely spot on. Offer was £1k higher last month, and then it dropped around £1500 and came back up so it was time for it to go. Especially with a 6% price increase across Audi's range too in Dec.

Nice work. Makes sense sticking while the market is hot.

Your partner could sell the 128ti for a tidy profit too, sounds like orders of those being pushed back to may 22!

Been monitoring the 128ti Facebook group and the delays they are facing are unreal. Crazy.
