    Selling my R..What next?

    Yes my friend had a C63, is was so comfortable. He also knows someone with a E92 com pack who said it can be a little harsh, but its a track car I guess

    Just out of curiosity, what did you prefer out of the C63 and the M3?

    haha, yes when I was a kid, seeing them fly by, E30's, those were the days Its a itch that needs scratching, I am not sure if I will keep it or sell it. I may keep for a few months then sell, or I may fall in love. We will see, the money I paid I will get my money back no problem. I miss the R though, really do. I always questioned it, but when I got inside and drove all those questions stopped and always gave me a smile.

    Yeah I have witnessed many BM's ass go all over the place, and also beat all of the line in my R. No more red light grand prix for me anymore. Like Jon said, just have to be extra careful, throwing it around bends could be fun. Winter driving it will be extra careful, once its dry it will be better

    Selling my R..What next?

    Its the main concern for me to be honest But many people say its more fun/thrilling and engaging than just being able to go fast in a straight line

    I found a car, a great car I think/hope lol. 2011 E92 M3 Competition Pack, 2 Previous, 64k with main dealer FSH. I think its a perfect example, just hope the car is for me. My concern is the front wheel drive, I am so used to flooring it in the R from standing and in any conditions, will have to constantly remind myself. I hope I can tame and control it, cause drifting could be fun. I am happy, its a big change from the R which I miss already but its a different beast and cant wait to collect, just need to get my ass on a train for 2.5 hours to pick it up. I will be heading over to the M3 forums mostly now so I want to thank everyone on this forum, such a goldmine for help. You guys helped my R journey amazingly, keep up the good work as we have plenty of R noobs buying every day. I will be back I am sure, I already plan on getting another R. Ideally, if I like the M3 that'll be the weekender, and once finances are good I can get a R as a daily. The best daily car ever, love my R. 😞 And GTI owners, cmon its time to upgrade to a mans car. Get a R FFS, stop driving the missus's car around lol

    What did you do to your R today?

    How do I activate this? I noticed in my manual R when I started it, the you could see the lights leveling themselves, I do not get this in my DSG. Thanks for reminding me

    We buy any car

    I found when selling cars privately, especially 20k or above, most people will go to a dealer and pay a grand or so more just for piece of mind/warranty, even though a lot of dealers warranties are worth nothing.

    Whats the mileage? you got a link to advert or any photos? I may be interested next week whens mines, I haven't owned a 3 door yet, so it gives me a valid excuse to buy another R

    They just stick them straight into in auctions and make a big profit, same with dealers who part x, they make a massive one too. Best bet is to advertise for around or just over what they are offering and hold out for a buyer, one will come. Try motorways if no one has already mentioned. My mate works in the trade, and has access to a dealer only site where a lot of other dealers sell the part x's , some great deals.

    Not an R owner just yet

    Good luck, also if you shop around have seen a fair few 14 plate MK7's for around 14k, which isn't much more than the MK6. Sure they are high mileage, 3 door etc. But If I see another one pop up at at the price, I'll buy one and keep forever.

    It is difficult, as many have said the R probably is the best bang for buck out there. Nothing else quite packs a punch, I just got home and when I was driving I thought I can quite easily see my self getting another, just an upgraded one. with some prets, sunroof, keyless, sub etc. I am also considering the RS3, but I will need to test drive one first as I am concerned of its weight compared to the R.
