Mountain Bike & RS3

Post by ShaneyB » Tue Sep 03, 2019 11:57 am

Hi all,
Going to be moving back to Audi shortly and was 100% going C7 RS6. Having second thoughts due to the type of mileage I do which is all suburbs and traffic. I was wondering how much grief it would be getting a hardtail mountain bike in an RS3 Sportback? Ideally I would like to keep my golf clubs and trolley in too but think it will be a struggle hence me thinking RS4 (not keen on its looks) or RS6.

Any comments regarding the latest 395ps model appreciated too.

Cheers
Shane

You need quite a big car to get an adult's bike in comfortably (ie: without taking the front wheel off).

We have six cars, and the only one a bike goes in easily is the Mondeo estate.

Thanks guys,
I took the plunge and bought a ‘17 plate RS6 Performance.

Having too much fun to even care about the bike.

Cheers
