    Is it me or does it not look much different to an S3 SB, assuming this is a lot quicker, is that all the RS3 is, more powerful engine with a few extra trick bits over the S3 and a massive price tag?

    Looks a smart machine though!

    I prefer the look of the Sportback to the 3 door.

    Yeah but there's enough cars in the Audi range with loads of doors. They should have gone back to the A3 roots. 3 door, wide aggressive looks.

    As I was leaving I spotted another one round the back in the pound, the guy I spoke to said they had the white one in last week.

    It's a cracking looking car, but the aesthetic changes are very subtle. There's a few little tweaks inside and out, but take off the RS3 badge and I doubt if you'd spot the difference.

    Me personally, I'd have one but not at the price they're asking!!!

    At first glance of the photo with your caption "I found this " i was thinking 'yh so? its another SB'
    Then i saw the front grill and realised its an RS3... its sad that only looking at the plate and the honeycomb grill that you realise what it is... I think audi are being way too lazy and just trying to pocket in some cash with the new engine tweeks... i mean they could have flared out the arches and given it a unique 'RS3 colour'....
    Even the Focus RS can be spotted half a mile away just by the way it looks

    You can tell by grille/wings/front bumper/rear diffuser, the same kind of things that seperate an S-Line A3 to an S3

    One of the main reasons i cant stand the RS. If you want garish loud looks you have the option of the Focus. If you want understated looks with huge power then you have the RS3. I wont be buying this car new but i will be looking at one in about 3 years after they have dropped in price.

    Ill take it de-badged for further fun when the occasion arises to 'blow away' other cars :D

    neither would I, but was just making a point on the looks of the car being different to the standard model.... sale applies to the R32! can tell from a distance its not a GTI or 2.0 TDI.

    Yes but your point was the R32 is easily recognisable, from a distance i would disagree.




    Could you distinguish these from a distance?

    The bottom line is, the RS3 doesn't really stand out much against the SB but it has a monster price tag and a different engine. Not worthy of the RS badge if you ask me.

    The pictures are small to make a point. From a distance they look the same although ones a golf and the other is a passat. All manufacturers keep a similar look throughout their range with subtle differences. A 335i M sport looks like an M3 from a distance, The RS3 is instanly recognisable to people who know what to look for, i think that its a good point. Not everone wants people to know they have a £40k+ car. I could leave it in a car park and most people would presume its 'just another audi'
    Try doing that with a Focus RS.
    If anyone can spot the difference between an S4 and RS4 they are doing well, S5 and RS5 they are also very keen eyed. Not sure why people thought the A3 would have a radically different RS model over the S model.

    I think i'd rather buy a normal 8P S3 second hand then get a bonnet like the white one above and a wide arch kit, rear bumper, custom exhaust like the blue one above, respray, stage 2 remap, the car would stand out more and I'd still have enough spare change to take a holiday
