Strange my mate had a 16 plate and thought it was a terrible car, overrated and not great for the road. He crashed it after a year. He has an m2 which he says is miles betterIf your interested in an M car I’d highly recommend the M3 over the M4 as I’ve had both in Competition form. The M3 just felt considerably more planted and the ride and drive were better too, also it looks better with the aggressive rear arches etc.
They are all but useless realistically in anything other than warm dry conditions as driving in MDM on anything other is suicidal lol. There awesome cars and so easy to tune.
I wouldn’t get too sucked in by the 0% deals they’ve got on the remaining brand new cars as the depreciation on M cars is absolutely savage, works well if you genuinely intend to keep the car the duration of the term etc.
Well my RS3 was twice the price and slower than my M135i, or it felt like it was slower because the M135i have soo much torque at 1400 rpm, both were stage 1 tuned.
I had my M135i for two years and it had no issues at all, the first month with my Audi i had issues with brakes and rusty rear wheel hubs and the Audi dealer sucked.
Ouch, presumably a big final payment of over 30k, 20k of options is impressive, thought it was only me who had no will power. I guess it’s easy to spend that much on options on a Porsche. looks nice
Presume it slower than an fl rs3 in a straight line but is a lot quicker around corners
Thing is with Porsche they hold there value so well that worrying about residuals isn’t really an issue like most other brands where you generally get your pants pulled down!
Its about £10k of options, the above doesn’t include vat on the price of the car (£50k), the car starts at around £61k I think on the road.
The new A45 will be "over" 400hp so the 3 will have to be higher again of course! I might be looking again at about that timeWell I went to Leeds audi today and they’ve said that’s it for the rs3 now and the next one is 2yrs away so I might have to wait I know one thing though I want Miami blue! They have a 8v Miami blue rs3 in and its beaut
