P.S. TT-RS is on my short list for replacing the M3

Recent onslaught of snow might have something to do with it :D

@wads you will always find dealer giving you lower price than list price, we can fairly compare only the factory price...
The TT-RS is fully loaded without Nav System but with a lot options to replace everything with even more expansive options... like more expansive seats, more expansive HiFi system, more expansive wheel option, more expansive leather etc..

The UK prices vary a lot.... I could get an M3 for £48k but the best price on the TT-RS I\'ve seen is £45k. I don\'t know how well equiped the TT is but the M3 comes with most things I\'d want (I didn\'t add anything to mine) adding a few Audi options could narrow the price gap even more.

P.S. TT-RS is on my short list for replacing the M3

the TT RS is £7,465 or 8,800Euro or $11,500 cheaper than a M3 Coupe in the UK.

The different in Germany is even bigger

@ Georg, yes, it's true that the TT-RS handles and corners excellent.:-) Anyhow, what happened to the filters/option of wetlaps?

without the wet and damp laps that setback the TT-RS this would be a pretty close match.. I bet much closer than most M3 fans like
