    510 bhp RS3.

    http://www.speedlux.com/audi-rs3-upg...10-hp-310-kmh/

    This is how Audi should have made the RS3 or atleast the same as Stage one with 410 bhp!!

    What an animal!!!!!!

    Wheels are horrible but hey ho. 510bhp you can't argue with that! More power than a standard C63 AMG!

    510bhp, it is impressive indeed but 15.000E + 40k is so bloody unreal!

    Can't imagine anyone would go for Stage 2 - it's just 10bhp and 20Nm more than Stage 1, yet costs another 1,000 Euros. Surely you'd stop at Stage 1 or go onto 3 or 4 ?

    Must be a hybrid turbo for the 510 bhp tune. Also those wheels are hideous and look they like they weigh a ton.

    Too expensive, you could get an R8 for that. When the hell can you use 510bhp on the road?!

    510bhp lovely, but it dont have move! But if i had that money i'd be getting a used RS6 C6
    And as said the wheels look far too chavtastic prefer the oem wheels besides the red an black ones they dont do anything for me.

    why start with such an expensive car like the RS3. Tuners can get a A3 2.0T and tune it to the same power. Although both cars won't last long if pushed hard frequently.

    Bonkers. I'm slightly concerned that someone owning that kind of car can't spell tuned, but then I suppose it's the ultimate get away car

    If the engine is built properly,and treated properly,there is no reason why it shouldn't last.....prior to my S3,I had 2 Cosworths running not far short of that power,and both were reliable,and fast.
    That said,the A3 2.0T is not such a good platform to start with as the S3,and it would need a LOT of work to get anywhere near 500bhp.....there are a reasonable number of 500bhp S3s running around.

    This RS3 business does nothing for me...the money and looks of the thing are way off. TTRS and C63 have already been mentioned - i'd be checking out SLK55's too. I know it's matter of opinion and so theres mine..

    Thats the thing about 50k motors, they need to look like 50k motors...and these just don't imho. They need to knock you socks off from the outset before reaching for the socket set.

    Problem is they are very pricey fro Audi, and whilst I keep an eye on the bay no cheapies have turned up.

    You can get pikey versions: 19 Audi TT RS Latest Design

    but I'd rather have the real deal.

    Only other OEM alternative for misers like myself is these: A4 rotors

    Need more money, more rims, more cylinders; the list is bloody endless!
