Buy online too. Usually the better Richer Sounds deals are store only. Good deal.

Richer have these speakers bundled with the Denon DM40 mini hi-fi for £318 but if you buy them separately you get them for £298 which in my humble opinion is the best deal in hi-fi under £300.

do I need an amp with these?

are these better than 2020i or just a more updated model

I had to make the same decision when buying these a year ago, in the end what sold me on these was the fact that these are much smaller in the z axis, (they don't protrude as much and have a smaller footprint). They also look more modern in my opinion.

The old ones are only bigger from the side (they're longer), from the front their nearly the same size. You'll only see them as bigger if you look at them from the side.

No, it's not a huge difference in sound, but the 3020 are slightly better with lower distortion and better bass, from when I tried them in RIchersounds.
The 3020's are single wire, whereas the 2020i's are biwire which makes wiring take little longer.
The 3020's have kevlar cones which are stronger than the 2020i's cones.

I personally wouldn't be happy with the 2020i's because it's last gen, and I'd always be thinking what if I had bought the 3020's, it's not a huge difference in price because they'll probably outlive most of the equipment you have connected.
But if buying the 2020i's means that you can save money to buy a better amp or receiver, then definitely do that.

Is this much better compared to Bose Sound Touch 10? If yes what's a good amp to pair with? Tha ns
