OP, Ive noticed the main cars around West Yorkshire driven by the local knobs are Golf R's and Audi S3's. The pre-facelift W204 C63 appears to be amongst there too although with rising fuel cost prices and insurance, its become less of a default choice for local scum. Golf R's and S3's can be had for less than £300 a month on some lease deals and many of these youngsters appear to live from paycheck to paycheck anyway which can probably be assumed by seeing these fancy cars outside houses worth maybe 2.5x in value. A trip to Bradford for a meal for example is always eventful with Great Horton Road being the breeding ground of EA888 VAG engines and rattle-can exhausts. I think the M135I/M140I, as well as the latest M3/M4 have stayed immune to this - probably because they require a bit more driving talent than some of the other cars where you can simply push the throttle to the floor and point the steering wheel in the direction you want to go. Lets face it, some of these drivers aren't the brightest on the road and one can probably assume they're hand/foot/eye co-ordination is equally as atrocious to drive anything powerful in RWD format.
