  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    Quick update folks...... not good news, after much thought I have decided to stick with my Golf R for the time being. My contract is due to end August so wan't to hold out and see if it will be extended or not before committing to a new car. I have also decided to convert the garage into a dedicated home cinema which is going to eat some of my M3 funds :D Moving house next week so have a lot to do.

    Gulp :D lol
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    I agree, I prefer San Marino over Yas to be honest but depends on what stock is left when the time comes.... :D

    Tell me about it, had two Pirelli P-Zero 19" tyres fitted to the Golf R = £310
  5. RS3 - Saloon!

    I haven't bought it yet.... but realistically can't see anything that interests me in the current Volkswagen / Audi line-up. My local tyre fitter owns a Yas Merino M3 CP and it looks the business with all the carbon bits. Roll on June 22nd.
  6. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Something to consider when getting a BMW innit :D
  7. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Wow.that was quick! When I test drove the BMW M3, it didn't have keyless access but it still had keyless start, is it still hack-able?

    I know but my financial adviser advised against it as she is certain Halifax will perform another credit check just before they release the funds to see if anything has changed and/or if I have applied for more money. The BMW salesman hinted at the same and advised I wait it out. Not great I know but can't take the risk at the moment.

    So to make the new car route comparable to a pre-registered car I would need to get the following deal if say it was a £15k depreciation value. Discount on car by £10K PCP dealer contribution £2.9K 0% finanance route would also save me some money over a used. This saving could range from as little as £3K or as much as 10K in interest payments?

    I am racking up the miles so no doubt the value will be dropping as each week passes by. It's a great car and is totally mint, so the next owner will be pretty pleased. (hopefully).

    Volkswagen offered me £20k for my Golf R, as I guess it’s probably worth £22-24k private and it really is mint example (always look after my cars). A pre-reg M3 CP could be an option, however I can’t order until the end of June so will have to wait it out for the time being. I guess buying used is always going to be the wiser option but if I can get £10-14k off list + £2900 deposit contribution + 0% finance it might be ok too.

    Yep..... just been out to take what could be the final photos of the Golf R, just coming up to 42k miles A7_00769.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00758.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00721.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00713.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00714.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00719.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00747.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr A7_00757.jpg by Rizvan Hussain, on Flickr

    Sure is
  14. RS3 - Saloon!

    A quick update folks, test drove a standard 67 plate M3 earlier today (3k miles) and it has far exceeded my expectations. I had it for an hour, so gave me a good chance to test it out, wife liked it too although she’s not happy about the cost, lol I’m really blow away buy the whole package, noise, handling, grip, steering and performance, still got a cheesy grin from ear to ear. When I got back in my Golf R, the whole M3 experience has it instantly highlighted the massive differences, the Golf R in isolation is a great car but once you’ve driven a M3 your view changes, mine certainly has and it’s like kind of taken the shine off the Golf R. Unfortunately I can’t commit to ordering until June 22nd so will have to wait a little longer but I’m certainty going to do the numbers so I can get one. So after 13-14 years of avoiding RWD cars it looks like I’ll be getting one, completely sold on the idea. The car is EPIC.

    A grass bank, great going .... I have checked the weather for Saturday, and it should be dry / sunny Really looking forward to it as the only other RWD car I have driven was my cousins SLK55 AMG many years ago. Hopefully BMW UK stock has some highly specced examples left, I think a bright individual colour is out of the question but we'll see.
