If you didn't get one now, you'll spend all the money on your 3, and then still wanting a 3. You then have to sell the highly modified 3, and end up getting an RS.

So for the sake of saving time and money, and sanity, get an RS!

I know, but the Mrs will spot a white GT3 with a big black spoiler and blue wheels



a Manthey'd Silver 3 will not be noticeable at all Twisted

Stu, you need to ask yourself why you want an RS!!!!

If the priority is the investment/kudos, then get an RS.

If the priority is the performance, then upgrade your current 3. The upgraded GT3 will be more capable than an RS.

If the priority is to go faster, then upgrade the driver through driver training.

At the end of the day, it's only money we're all burning on our hobbies! In 5 years time, we'll probably all be driving different cars, so we might as well enjoy what we have/can afford now!

The trouble is, it's like lurve, you just can't explain it logically why you want it, you just do, and nothing else will do, be it better or worse.

Thanks for the heads up, I have seen it advertised.

Really wanted a blue one but there are rarer than red so less around.

Trying to decide between spending more to get low miles and provenance or spending less and worry less about putting miles on it or getting it dirty!

It'll be my daily driver after all!

Am I right in thinking that it would just be a question of getting the wheels re-painted and changing the colour of the stickers on the side from red to blue?

I've got no connection with Strasse but they have a really good reputation and I knew a couple of the guys from years ago when they worked for JCT and they were first class.

IMHO I would always go for the cars with low mileage and provenance - GT3's and RS's aren't generally bought by old grannies for going to the shops and if anyone is going to use it hard I'd rather it was me!
