Tough decision to sell my D3 biturbo coupe, but the RS4 won out for the time being. But I'll be back to the fold as soon as I can..

There's a few occasions which show why an extra couple of hundred brake horse power are better when the B3 pulls away from the Clio. Tho' the B3 gets very wallowy thro the compressions before the mini karussel, which allowed the Clio driver to overtake.

We'd shared some fantastic moments, the highlight of which was the trackday at Oulton Park last October ( http://thealpinaregister.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=9102&highlight= ). The car hit the swee...
