Yeah. I know it’s common but it’s because it’s a great colour.

A deciding factor on the R was that I’d owned a pre-facelift gti pp before the S3 so didn’t think it felt new enough if that makes sense. Awesome car though.

It is the best colour (imho) 👍

It will look brilliant kind of the trademark colour that suits the interior so well.

You are all going to think I like a drama. I really don’t. My dealer has changed the price of my R for the second time. They will probably claim another mistake but I think it’s time to ask for my deposit back. Ridiculous.

How much did it change by?  Is it a car already in the UK or one potentially subject to the Brexit surcharge?

If you want me to put in touch with my dealer let me know. He's no nonsense, a great deal and has access to the biggest selection of new & unregistered.

Thanks for the offer. Whereabouts is the dealers based?

I’ve got a dealer contacting me tomorrow via Orange Wheels but not sure I want to wait 14 weeks as my S3 needs the tyres replacing really.
