Page 1 of this thread has the prices in euros.... both with and without cup2 tyres...

You might want to sit down before you click back...



I know it’s off topic but Is that the City of Derry coat of arms / City Arms Londonderry, displayed with Dick Turpin? What’s the connection?

I think it was to do with the City Council putting up their rates......

Here we go then chaps: leaked Edition 45 images. So far the visual changes:
- New colour
- Wheels
- 45 side stickering (very nice - and explains why the standard Clubsport stickers are a bit meh)
- Akrapovic exhaust
- Black mirror caps
- Black roof (?) Hard to tell but the rear 3/4 angle suggests so.

Worth nothing that this is clearly a CGI model like the initial Clubsport pics, so it may look better (or worse!) in person.

Make what you want of the ‘345’ in the numberplate... fake ‘WOB’ numberplates for press launches do have a history of meaning something! After all, the standard Clubsport was unveiled in similar photos wearing
 ‘WOB CS 300’

Good find. The number plate is pretty explicit as to what it is. WOB (Wolfsburg) CS (Clubsport) 345 (Ed 45).

Not keen on the wheels though. Hopefully they're lightweight at least. :smug:

Correct sir. The WOB CS is a given... however they could have stuck any number between 1-9 in front of the ‘45’... why choose ‘3’

Will it have 345ps?

My guess is they used 3 instead of E.

I'm not expecting it to have 345ps, as that would put it head and shoulders above the R, and only FWD.

But if I'm wrong it wouldn't be the first time. :sad:

Agreed, I can't see it having any more power or even mechanical changes underneath apart from the exhaust. Its a ED45 'pack' rather than a whole different specification for engine etc

You’re probably right, I imagine they’re at the top of emissions regs with the EA888 as it is

Oh dear ........ those pictures have just cost me some money :laugh:

Thank you for posting those up. Been spending way too much time deliberating on my next daily between returning to a hot golf and Audi S5 sportback ED1.

Problem ( and it’s a silly one ) all my cars are dark grey ( rules out the R - shame - and still not 100% on dolphin grey ) - just can’t get a car whose colour I’m not 110% on.

Think it looks stunning in that colour - I’m firmly in the love black wheels camp (each to their own of course).

45 stickers and red rim on the wheels can be adjusted to make it fit my taste but I think it looks brilliant - hope the grey looks as good as it does in the pics

Would it be too much to hope for some sexy seats and interior trim - probably !!!!

What started out a rubbish day has just got brighter thank you.

Well if that pic is true, red wheels are reality not speculation.

That's going to seperate the men from the boys.

I really like the look, but suspect the ED45 pack on top of the clubby base price will mean nasty luxury car tax even if you add nothing else.
