  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    Oh nice!
  2. RS3 - Saloon!

    Which one do you have Rachel?
  3. RS3 - Saloon!

    My C63S with 510bhp and more torque than the QE2 had more mechanical grip and could use "most" of the power far more than the M4 CP I drove. You should give one a go.
  4. RS3 - Saloon!

    Engine in the M3/4 performs epically well... but it sounds rubbish. Even the GTS sounds poor. The non-M engine in the M2 on the other hand doesn’t really set the world alight, but it sounds gorgeous. BMW need to pull their fingers out and get a M division twin turbo V8 sorted.
  5. RS3 - Saloon!

    I'm not a fan of Yas Marina Blue, looks a bit washed out....... Mexico or Riviera is IMO much nicer
  6. RS3 - Saloon!

    San Marino Blue with the exterior carbon pack looks amazing.
  7. RS3 - Saloon!

    A car salesman’s favourite manoeuvre lol
  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    Me too. Why oh why have they not made an M3 Touring. It would look mega.
  9. RS3 - Saloon!

    That's exactly why they are bad.... BMW wrecking the used values with huge discounts and low apr finance on new cars. Redline re a very good indy dealership, prep the cars very well and a 2017 car still has LOAD of manufacturer warranty. £45k... should get for c£43k with a strong haggle
  10. RS3 - Saloon!

    Here you go Riz...... just use Lombard Finance instead, will be c5-7% APR M3 Comp Pack
  11. RS3 - Saloon!

    Ha, so it's not just me that does car buying at the MOST inappropriate times lol
  12. RS3 - Saloon!

    I'd be wanting at least 10% for a stock new M3/M4. A lot depends if they have any cars with the right options for you to be honest. Palm the dealers off against each other (but only if they are two different buying groups, ie: Sytner vs Inchcape)
  13. RS3 - Saloon!

    M3 or M4 ?
  14. RS3 - Saloon!

    So that's 7% off... good starting point
  15. RS3 - Saloon!

    My experience with Audi dealers is they are just like BMW and Merc. Come the end of quarter they're up for a deal. You need to be very bold and make sure they know you're not tyre kicking. Ask him what discount on an RS7 and see him squirm.... 14% last time I asked
  16. RS3 - Saloon!

    High spec will help. I'd just get in contact with three dealerships (make sure they are from different groups) and start the ball rolling. I'd also leave it till end of quarter too, there's always pressure to get a few more units through end of March, June, September & December
  17. RS3 - Saloon!

    35k Riz, almost ready for the knackers yard ! RS3 Saloon is a great looking car, in fact I think it's a really well proportioned car. Never going to match the Golf-R discounts, they are always quite crazy, higher than GTi oddly too. I'm sure you could get 10%+ though if you tried.
  18. Garage Storage Cabinets

    Mornin' Glad you managed to sell them all. Do you have a link where I could get some please ? Ta
  19. V6 Macan. What a sound!!!!

    used prices for the 6-cyl cars is holding up very well, in fact the 4-cyl cars are down to similar money...
  20. ORIGINAL POST BY GIZZE IN 1 SERIES THREAD: Mate, if you are going to upgrade the 5 series get the following... Blaupunkt THA-555 pnp amp. BMW plug and play cable with 5.5m extension. DLS R4 speakers. 2 earthquake SWS-8 subwoofers. (these guys make the BMW sub and it drops right in.) Totall cost around £600, it is all fitted without cutting a singe wire and it sounds absolutely fantastic. The locations of the BMW speakers is the best designed set up of any car, using the door sills as subwoofer cabinet is genius, plus having the subs up front intergrates the bass perfectly. I would now say to anyone speccing a new BMW to not add any audio upgrade and put this in. I always thought that the Logic 7 was just really good components for an OEM set up, but it is more the fact the stock locations are spot on and really do get the most out of them. Hi Gizze, Getting the kit priced up as we speak. Does the amp power the front and rear speakers as well, taking it away from the headunit amp ? Apparently (don't know for sure) the bog standard subs in the E60 are 6.5" not 8", as only the HiFi and Logic7 get 8". Any experience with this? Maybe if this is the case the 6.5" subs are in an adaptor ring? Cheers Paul
  21. PS4 Pro?

    I'd say the HDD capacity is the most important thing, 500Gb is just not enough with so much downloadable content. I'd either buy a 2 or 3Tb 2.5" drive and upgrade yourself or buy a 1Tb OEM PS4 as a minimum, with a view if it gets filled up, you can upgrade. The Pro has optical audio output (for an older AV receiver), but most modern AVRs use HDMI audio anyway.... it also has an extra USB port on the back, useful for the VR headset apparently. Think we'll be getting a 1Tb Slim for one of our tribe, doesn't need 4K in his bedroom ! I might NEED a Pro for the 4k though :D
  22. RS3 - Saloon!

    Totally agree..... so Yellow decals then ??? :D
  23. RS3 - Saloon!

    The only people making interesting cars/engines any more are AMG. The M4 looks great, but the engine is uninspiring. The RS4 looked like a 2.0TDi with big wheels... which leaves the C63S..... with 509 bhp..... and a proper V8 soundtrack, even though it's turbocharged.... nom nom nom
  24. Canon G7X

    Very good camera that. GLWS
