Daytona Grey RS3

Decided to treat myself to a new car after having the GTD for roughly 5 years during in which i got married and became a father.

Ive had itchy hands for the 18 months about buying a new car, looking at e92 m3s ( which i still love and will hopefully own one before i kick the bucket), Golf R's but couldn't justify changing to them for a faster engine , same with the GTI with PP. Looked into A45's but for some reason ive never been a lover of merc's.. even though the noise of the C63 etc is lush.

Then Graham from hollybrook said ill do you a good deal on the RS3 and sent across figures.. and then it aroused my suspicion on them as i didnt know to much about RS3's.

Started researching them and found info on owner clubs, spent hours watching different videos on youtube and learnt about their iconic 5 cylinder engine and even consulted a couple of rms users as well buying the decision process.

Sunday past Graham called over with the RS3 and let me drive it.. and that was it.. mind made up.. deal done and got it yday :laughing: superb service from the team at hollybrook from start to finish.. was all hassle free.

So enough of the boring details, here's all the info about it

Exhaust, FMIC and software - wont cost much now on the second hand market

Did you get Stage 1 DSG done as well?
Prob talking 1500ish 2nd hand if you can find a second hand fmic ☹ ( i search ebay all the time for the bits incase i see a billy bargain )

Didnt touch the gearbox software, from reading online and speaking to TG its more for stage 2 upwards.

£1500 for everything?

eg Revo FMIC is £800 new, all you'd need exhaust wise is the down pipe then software I think to upgrade to Stage 2 is £60 but then you'd have to factor in the DSG software which will be £500 so you wont be far off £1500 actually

Are these not 395bhp standard, and it’s only 405-425 now? Torquetronix are quoting 435bhp for stage 1.

Facelift rs3 are 395-400 bhp , pre face lift is around 368ish ( usually make more power than that on rollers ).
