Default Oil consumption caused me to trade my RS3

I have complained here a few months ago about the bad oil consumption. I had a 2011 polo GTI it is was the same. On top of that I have also wrote here that three time in 8 months I have driven into a pot hole and needed to replace the tire. I know it can be bad luck but I also blame the 255/30 tires.
Traded it with a second hand 0 km BMW M2. still breaking it in so can't tell how is it.

This is a great forum. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for all the help and support.

Sorry to hear about the RS3, but the M2 isn't a bad alternative. Those would be my two choices as well if the 2-door/4-door thing isn't an issue.

How do you get a second hand 0 km car??? I can't even get a "Brand New" 0 km car, let alone a second hand one at that!

The M2 is a better driving car. No doubt about it but the Audi compensate as a daily. The M2 is firmer and has much heavier steering wheel.
I assume that you are an American. I don't think that a second hand 0 km market is needed. Where I live, car costs double or even triple the price in the US, you do need such a market.
Leasing companies buy cars from the importer (we do not have dealers here) and sells them in a much cheaper price with 0 km. When I mean 0 km, I mean up to 30-40 km if it wasn't clear

For the other two guys that had commented, thanks!

I'd like to add a M2 CS manual to the garage.

The new G80 based 340i is as fast as the M2 with more space. IMO the M2 is dead, dated and slow. I'd much rather have the M3. I would disagree that the M2 is a "better driving car" compared to the RS3.

This is your opinion and it's fine. If fast is a parameter to enjoy from driving then you are probably right. An M3 starts here at 195,000 USD ("a bit" over my budget).
Most journalists claims that the M2 is a better driving car than the M3 and M4 (I'm not talking about the CS or GTS).

If money was no object I'd be hitting the new M5. Talk about beast! Watched Jeremy Clarkson's review and was impressed as hell with that car. I find myself wanting that car like no other suddenly. I can't imagine what that car would cost in Eran's country though.
