  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Bloodbath....

    Which gen Type R? I love them, they look fast even when they are not moving :D
  4. Post a pic of your car

    Sorry to hear about your dad Thorburn. There is no such thing as too lairy. my new steed.
  5. "Relay Crime" reality?

    I have a metal key case screwed to the back of a steel beam. Should work on the same principle.
  6. Porsche Macan 2.0T

  8. Porsche Macan 2.0T

    Still got it. Dent is fixed by Porsche silverstone scum bag lying cheating robbing barstewards. new car has arrived but I have a dilemma. Dealer has interested parties for the M2, I love the Macan and can’t decide...
  9. M2 or Macan

    So which would you choose?
  10. Porsche Macan 2.0T

    Looking at changing the car, had some offers to buy it from a few main dealers, so thought i'd mention it here. Sapphire Blue 2.0 T petrol, PDK (they all are) June 2015 car covered 28k miles. Full service history. 21" Platinum Sport Classic Alloys, full colour centres/ Bi-Xenons with PDLS and washers with gloss black covers, Tinted tail lights, Alloy fuel filler cap, Park assist front and rear with rear camera, Panoramic Roof, Privacy Glass, Roof Rails in Black, Monochrome exterior pack, Leather interior, Extended leather to include dash and doors and centre console, Logo embossed in headrests, grey seat belts, heated front seats, memory drivers seat, PASM, adaptive power steering, 75l fuel tank, Bose, Nav / phone / USB / HDD / Bluetooth media streaming. Rear roll up sun blinds, Car was a shade over £55k when new, best offer to buy (not PX as it seems dealers want to buy these at the moment) I have had is £36,000. If anyone is wanting to match that I'd rather the dealer didn't make another £9k on top of it. BAD points - car has a parking dent in the rear door, one alloy is curbed and tyres are at 4mm of tread. On a cruise this is returning around 35mpg, around town late 20's. Happy to answer any questions.
  11. I was reading earlier that Silverstone is top crowd puller at 350k. I know living locally it has plans for additional hotel accommodation and further expansions all with planning approval pending some recent revisions. None of this is cheap, and if they can't pull a profit then why continue with expansion plans. Its only business, you don't do it to go under, I can understand why the owners are pissed, if your top venue can't make a profit then that doesn't look good.
  12. Pretty quick :o

    So a production car that manages a 9.56 @140mph 1/4 mile, thats not bad going really..... http://www.motortrend.com/news/dodge-dont-drive-demon-highway-cold-weather/?sm_id=organic_fb_MT_trueanthem&utm_campaign&utm_content=594fc1e204d30104e0dd3324&utm_medium&utm_source
