Very nice mate :)

I like the roof rails, I've got them on mine.

You impressed with the RS?

Thanks.
Yes I think it's great - the engine is terrific, likewise brakes, but ride harsher on the crappy roads we have upo here than the S3 it replaced, and not so sure about the auto box - I reckon it'd be fantastic with a good old 6 speed stickshift but I'm old fashioned like that.
Objectively probably not worth the money over the S3 but hey...
It's actually my wife's ride though and it's currently back at the dealers due to brakes screeching very badly, on account of which she is now refusing to drive the car ("everyone keeps glaring at me"), here's hoping they sort it quickly for her or it'll be back on the forecourt faster than you can say "RS4" (which she has her beady eye on!).

Looks really nice in black. Don't blame your misses for hating the brake squeal its the first thing I'm going to sort on mine when I get back to the uk in march.

Like it alot. Wish I had the roof bars.

Stick with the box, you will learn to love it. Just wish you could rev it more at low speeds.

Ride is crap on poor roads. Hope the new shape RS3 has that adaptive suspension. Downside to an old chassis I guess.
