Badge snobbery indeed!

How will it feel when a Golf comes flying past your RS 3? Plus to most people the RS 3 will look just like an A3 anyway.

Given I currently have a Skoda and have a Hyundai on order you can hardly accuse me of badge snobbery!
The Golf is for the masses, I am not a sheep, is more the situation. And there's no chance of an R420 coming past me once I'm done with the RS3 :)

Certainly gave the impression of some snobbery.

Done with the RS 3??? Next car already planned?

LOL, no, I plan to keep the RS3 for more than 5 mins this time (and tune it)!

I think you're like properly mad to buy an rs3, on decent spec its an 55k audi a3, its like an rs6 on spec is 100k ouch..... I'm mega sorry, but honestly i reckon that the golf r 400 - however it looks; comes from a much better heritage, and in theory should absolutely rock. It is without doubt where my mid sized hatch money would go. I've spoken to audi sales guys who have sold only 1/2 cars, and frankly agree, just look at the last rs3. Be careful fellas.

Saw an RS 6 for £59k the other day so not long until you can get one for £55k. Food for thought.
