  1. Portchester (Southern) Meet 5th May

    [ QUOTE ] Won't that be the Army get hammered then Dom im sure if Royal will put in a cracking effort as always [/ QUOTE ] We shall see, the Navy have not done so well over recent years and the Army have half the Fijian national team in their squad. The only thing guaranteed is that I will be hammered.
  2. Portchester (Southern) Meet 5th May

    I would have attended this one but I will be at Twickenham watching the Navy get hammered again hopefully whilst getting hammered myself. Have a good one guys.
  3. RS4 Tyres

    How much for 4 tyres Daz?
  4. Good meet guys, excellent turn out and a good selection of cars there.
  5. Just made the most of the good weather today ready for tonight . See you all later .
  6. What the do these do...

    [ QUOTE ] I always have to ask, what is the fuel economy like? [/ QUOTE ] On the motorway it is about 18-19 in mine but around town or on a spirited run it gets down to around the 10 mark although I am hoping this will get better once it has loosened up more. It is defintiely a lot thirstier than the R and at times I have been filling up daily.
  7. What the do these do...

    [ QUOTE ] If I test drove one would I want one? [/ QUOTE ] Well I did Oli, had a test drive and that was it, the R32 went and was replaced with the RS4 and no regrets at all.
  8. What will be the verdict...?

    [ QUOTE ] However good the others are, the GTI is the best true allrounder - But then you wouldn't expect me or many others here to say otherwise would you! [/ QUOTE ] I am not sure that it is the best all rounder, there are cars in that list that offer similar or greater performance than the GTI and similar practicality for less money which would be a factor as an all rounder but I know you are biased Red . If I was buying I would probably choose the GTI out of that list though.
  9. 17 or 18 inch wheels?

    Definitely 18's, they will look much better especially on a white GTI and there is very little compromise in ride quality.
  10. What the do these do...

    The button on the dash is to enable the forward parking sensors. Also selecting reverse enables the forward ones automatically too for when you are manouvering etc. They turn off automatically after a few seconds once you drive off. The S button does as described above.
  11. finally getting the RS6

    Nice one Johnny, enjoy
  12. Golf RSi (or R36)

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] Not sure if it'll make a huge difference to my final decision Wopps BUT it'd make a difference if a larger tank capacity was practical with the car design. One chum has an RS4's and it's his main gripe (range between fill-up's). [/ QUOTE ] When I fill mine up it shows a range of anywhere between 180 and 230 miles. I have noticed that I am at the pumps a lot more often than I was with the R32 but I wouldnt think the RSI would be massively different to the current R. [/ QUOTE ] If its not a personal question ..... how bigs yer tank ! [/ QUOTE ] 63 litres

  14. Orange S3

    I quite like it too.
  15. First Upgrade

    Milltek was my first upgrade and would be again if I was to have another R, I also had a short shifter and this is a good mod too and relatively cheap.
