    Coincidently I ride past the Jaguar garage in Norwich every morning and when I looked in the window on the way past this morning I noticed they have one in their showroom. I thought right Im going to go in there in the next couple of days and see what they look like in the flesh..I’ll report in a couple of days.

    My Mazda 3 MPS that I have just sold came standard with a little gadget that allowed you to look in the wing mirrors to see a car in your blind spot. When a car entered your blind spot a LED image of a car appeared in the wing mirror. It worked perfectly and was standard on the MPS. I can’t imagine then that it is too expensive to put on a standard hatchback or a low cost option.

    Insurance is only about £30 per year more than the MPS. It cost £308 Fully comp.

    I have had my E46 M3 for a few weeks now and I think the difference in build quality and general feel between the E36 and E46 are huge. The E46 is just a nice place to sit which I personally find very important. I had a 325ci a couple of years ago and was always told the rear suspension is prone to wear. The bushes need changing around the 60k mark and sometimes the back end would “bang” when going over bumps. This is quite an expensive fix so would check for that and as mentioned rear tyre wear can be harsh.
    46 far better than the 36 in my opinion.
    Thanks

    I do like the S3 however I prefer the saloon version which will come out. It does beg the question with having such good reviews and 300bhp, what will the new RS3 be like??

    HI guys,
    Good to see a few familiar faces from the autocar forum.
    I was a member for a few years (as Wanos) and have to say was disappointed to see it had been cancelled but read that Stu had started his own little discussion group.
    Hopefully a few more direct, frank, knowledgeable, funny discussions to be had on here as well.
    Thanks Wayne
