I'm not sure what being "a baller" means, but I
like to have ONE vehicle that I don't care about and can take in the snow/salt.
The fact that Sports are so cheap is why I got one. Some of my vehicles I like alot,
but are not worth much if I were to sell, like

79 Bronco I use to tow my boat. Maybe worth 4-5 grand
86 Capri 5.0, maybe worth 6-8.
59 T-bird, maybe worth 10 grand (these are just not worth as much
as the baby birds, 55-57).

So getting rid of those 3, and Sport/EVO8 is about
what I would have to do to get an RS3. As bad as the RS3 is,
will it alone be as much fun/usable as those 5 other vehicles.

Probably not, but having a DD, 10 second capable, and road course
ready, all in one package would be really cool. Now would I have a warantee
if I modded it and what would it cost without warantee if I blew it up.
As an example, I got a brand new factory Mitsu 5 spd for EVO8
for $3400 (I installed), doubt you get those prices for anything german.

Doubt you would daily drive the rs3 either. I would be more of an m4 driver myself.

Audi's modded car warranty is not as friendly as Fords. Once you get blacklisted in the system, it's a wrap. No matter what dealership you go to, they will see that you are modded and blacklisted. Lots of guys run JB4 tuner because it ghosts the system and even then they have to completely remove the unit before even going in for an oil change or anything. Audi ALWAYS scans your vehicle for user changes!

I think that is true of ford also, but many dealers are OK on mods (so I've read on many different ford message boards) and if you know someone @ a dealer, they can work with you. I forgot about the JB4 stuff, that does make the german cars more attractive, since I do all my own maint and only use the dealer for difficult or high dollar warantee stuff.

Anyway, getting the new escape Monday, so as cool as RS3 would be on the race track, I'll have to "suffer" through with the Sport (which I am very happy with at this point).
