Love that :clap:

But I do love a fast Audi, had 2 RS3's previously and now drive a 2018 TT RS

I did consider an RS4 but we really didn't need another big car.

Thanks, Ade. I loved my previous A4 Avant which had a remap and went like hell. And Mrs T’s TT. Is rock solid despite its age.

Very nice indeed always had a hankering for an RS. Early in the week I was parked next to an RS3 when it fired up and my colleague near wet himself

:D Not gauged the opinion of the neighbours a yet but it does strike up with quite a roar. I let it idle until it settles down and reaches working temperature ( like the S1) then I purr quietly out of the cul de sac where we live and hold myself in check until I reach the A6 where, ev en in standard Drive mode, it’s hard to resist the thunderous V8.
I have also just realised that the only time previously that I have had a V8 under my throttle pedal was when I drove a GT40 down the M56 in Cheshire at highly illegal speeds. Now that was some car. Speedo was on extreme left of the right hand drive car but with a pal we saw !20 mph in a 30 mph area inBirkenhead.
Long story, I will bore you all with some day. If I havenot already done so.
