  1. A few from the village car show

    Lotus Carlton - Yes please :D
  2. GLC 63S

    No I have to say that the Macan is driven like a car around Milton Keynes when I am there. IT does shock some people when you see the large bulk going around the corner not falling over :D
  3. "Relay Crime" reality?

    I was hoping both would be gone, but alas not. Although the insurers pointed out that my 330 current book price is about £24k, its 12 months old with 11k miles and was a list of £54k - thats some stonking depreciation, so I'm glad I dont have it written off as then I'd have the whole GAP claim as well.
  4. "Relay Crime" reality?

    I think if the police are accurate - 4 curbed alloys, front splitter damaged and couple of marks on bonnet paintwork. M2 jst has couple of curbed alloys and thats it.
  5. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Both cars are with the police One of the downsides of living in a bungalow is that the keys are always on the ground floor Just waiting for damage apraisals.
  6. "Relay Crime" reality?

    Didnt use this method for mine - they just destroyed the patio doors at the rear of the house and stole the keys.
  7. Roof Bars Conundrum

    Or if you dont want to tow a trailer as Billy suggests then a slightly smaller option is tow hitch carrier:
  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    How about Mexico Blue?
  9. MK Meet - Weds 6th June

    I might bring the new one along. But then again I might not if people are going to be mean on photo edits.
  10. 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.
  11. RS3 - Saloon!

    I can see you in this ...
  12. 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.
  13. RS3 - Saloon!

    Factory order = custom colour, go on you know you want to......
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. RS3 - Saloon!

    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
  17. 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.
  18. 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)
  19. 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
  20. RS3 - Saloon!

    Totally agree with Mac.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. Bloodbath....

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

    Sorry to hear about your dad Thorburn. There is no such thing as too lairy. my new steed.
