Hi, bought a RS3 8P 2 months ago, 30k miles 2 owners, I did want buckets but decided lower miles were more important. Surprised how well it Handles with all the understeer horror stories on YouTube, currently own a E46 M3 in estoril blue, which drives totally different, but taking nothing away from the Audi it's a great piece of kit.

One thing about Misano Red is it always looks blooming great after a good polish and in showroom lights.

I used to own something similar with the buckets, after a while I realised as good looking as they were they weren’t the easiest seats to get in / out of and keep from wearing on the bolsters.

A blue badge might have helped 🤔
