  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    Thats a pretty good shout. I've not driven one but been co pilot and they are pretty rapid. I know its not an 'M' car, but a 340i with BMW M performance remap / exhaust is also quite a rapid machine and estate format.

    I can see you in this ... https://www.redlinespecialistcars.co.uk/used-cars/bmw-m2-3-0-s-s-2dr-knaresborough-201804165589187
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    Try Ian Ross at Specialist cars in Luton, they have quite a few M cars come through so might have a good selection. I'd be wanting closer to 20% on an M3.

    Factory order = custom colour, go on you know you want to......
  5. RS3 - Saloon!

    I've said it before in this thread and your other one, having owned a couple of VW Group cars over the years, they would have to pay me good money to trade my M2 in, in fat they'd have to pay me and give me a car. Drive it with no respect and it will think of a nice inventive way to kill you, but I doubt any of us here drive with no respect for the car. The M2 is such a great package that you need to spend some time in it, it is so different to my 3 series, far more agile, and I dont drive it any differently to any other car i've had. Granted it has more power than most ive owned but it comutes to work as well as anythign i've had, but even then it pops, bangs and farts and makes me grin even at 30.
  6. BMW M2 Competition

    Yeah I'd have the M2 any day - the competition looks awesome, in fact I want to change mine now As Andrrew says the M4CS looks pretty awesome. Having had a couple of BMWs in the last couple of years, it will be along time until I go back to Audi. I test drove the RS3 before the M2 was ordered and don't regret my decision one bit.

    Does GDPR apply to Ian? Isn't he now supposed to contact everyone he holds data on and obtain specific approval to retain that data? :D
  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    The problem is that there are some distinctly average cars are very stupid money. I saw a Nova the other day go past £50k - stupid money.
  9. Post a pic of your car

    I'm really pleased there are people left in the world who have a good eye for colour (y)
  10. RS3 - Saloon!

    The M2 is our second car and used to cart kids around. the rear isn't bad for daily use but we wouldn't use it on the trip to Spain
  11. RS3 - Saloon!

    Totally agree with Mac.
  12. RS3 - Saloon!

    Oh well if you want input I test drove one and brought the M2 instead. The RS3 was really fast, sounds fantastic and at the same time kind of dull, i just didnt love it. The M2 on the other hand is fantastic every day (granted Ive only covered 2k miles in 5 months) but I love to get in and drive it, for me it had something that I ant quite put my finger on, but the RS3 just didnt have it.
  13. RS3 - Saloon!

    I asked at Audi UK and my mate said they are penalising dealers who offer large discounts on RS models by removing build slots from them. You'll get discounts on those that Audi say, but the RS3 isnt one of them. Massive discounts on the outgoing 3 series though
  14. Bloodbath....

    Which gen Type R? I love them, they look fast even when they are not moving :D
