Today I finally parted with Lightning.
She has been a fabulous car and by far the best I’ve owned and driven.
Guyver off here is now the proud new owner.
His face was a picture when I took him for a spin, enjoy fella.

A sad day, I'm sure you'll miss "lightning" - what are you hoping to replace "lightning"  with?

Did you have it from New? as you must be one of the last of the original owners of the Gen 1 Cars when RS3OC first started, bet it'll be missed

I got her at about 6 months old.
I class myself as a founder member as I was present at the wales meet at GYG carting, through ASN where Steve met Andy and formed the group we are now in.
If I remember correctly there was 13 RS3’s that day.
Yep she will be sadly missed as she was the best car I’ve ever had, but cars get old and start to break so I counted myself lucky I never had a serious issue with her.
The replacement is 6 months old so back under Audi warranty.

Not just the size but the interior is light years ahead. But I wanted to still have fun while driving a more sensible car so it had to be an S1.
If they bring one out in the new model, I’ll be very interested.

I must admit there’s a red A1 further down our street and it looks superb.

I much prefer the old style on what a GREAT colour choice of the S1 Niel ...YELLOW is the new black !

 

Me and Mrs Mush were at Bluewater yesterday and she likes the q3 we saw 2  of them 4 cars apart new one and a 16 plate one in the car park the

 

new one the grille is much more pronounced and looks much more "plasticky" .

 

Still like any new car they take a bit of getting used to I spose.

 

The Audi Tech bloke I know said he knew of an S1 with 400 + bhp I bet that is as scary as hell  !!

Same variant of the Golf R engine with some changes, more akin to the Golf GTi version.
