All of the excitement of the clubsport concept has been washed away by the final product falling at pretty much every hurdle. The only plus is that the base price is below the 8P's, but even that quickly fades to a negative once you get it past £50k with options.

The B8 was £15k more for the equivalent spec B7, so that make a B9 probably around £80k (I paid £53k for my B7).

The C63 pricing is silly, it's RS6 money for the S model.

I thought the RS5 was priced too high and it only came a couple years after the B7 closed books. Since then what were once 50k cars are now more like £60-70k cars.

OK maybe £52k? It certainly was well over 50 grand, bought it from Sytners, was the second / first RS4 in the country, but didn't pay over list.

Looking at that, and what the RS4 is coming for it looks like the right price. However the RS3 is just mental, especially with the launch of the Golf R Estate Today - makes a load more sense than the RS3....

....and then there's the golf r 400 - Definite choice over the RS3

Mmm, still the same disappointing car, and now the R400 appears to be a goer this seems rather redundant.

The R420 was confirmed as I was signing the paperwork for the RS3 (literally was reading the article on my phone in the dealership). For me it has the same 2 problems the normal Golf R has;
1. It's still JUST a Golf
2. It doesn't have the 5-pot

And if the R is anything to go by, it will be common as muck!

Horse for course though.
