Great write up MBK. Did you fit the larger Pilots on the front, the 255 size? I think
Hi OFFSKEE, I've had 2 S3's (1 white sportback & 1 Silver 3 door) both were re-mapped so I wasn't expecting big things from the RS3, boy oh boy I was proved wrong !!
I struggled to justify the extra money before I bought one, but you only live once, the engine note when accelerating is justification alone !!
It took a while for me to find one with the right spec, but I eventually did and it was worth the wait !! Yes you'll get the nay Sayers who slag it off because its long in the tooth blah blah blah !! Who cares ? Test drive it and you'll see
As john says a proper Q car and it does get attention from those in the know.
The RS3 is a superb car, the only thing I could fault it for is the driving position, I'm 6'1 and wasn't keen on how high the position was (I had comfort seats).
i will reiterate the mpg, I'm currently averaging 18mpg in my new RS5, 10mpg down on the 3
Mind you, it's worth it for the V8 howl
I remember you saying this the first time and i never commented. I still don't get it, i'm 6'4" and don't have any problems what so ever with driving position.
The only time i struggled was when i did a run on the 1/4 mile and had to wear a helmet in the car, this mean't i had to slouch a little to fit!
