Recaro seats are expensive.. umm.. I'd have to get the steering wheel covered in real suede. There's the matte vinyl wrap and the $3000 wheels.. Oh, I could spend it, Rexie.. just give me a chance.
My point is, as was Chris's.. the price makes the RS3's marginal extra speed irrelevant to an enthusiast.
That said, Rexie.. be more like hkerekes (who was originally shopping for a 135i) and buy a BOSS instead.
