    Could be one way of Audi's keeping up the interest in the 8P until the new A3 arrives in 2011/12.

    Watch the options on that though.. tick the 'must have' boxes for diff, dampers, etc and you're not far off 50k
    RS3 would have to be c35k, plus a couple of 000 on options, so 37k. I'd spend that.
    I think it will deffo come on the 8P chassis, as mentioned, marketing move to keep interest in the 8P until it is replaced.

    I know, it can get very pricey, very quickly, so it wouldn't be a new one.

    I agree, just winding Andy up.
    I guess historically, the RS models have always come in Avant/Estate/Sportback form.

    All the other RS models are 4 door Apart from the TT-RS & RS4 Cab, but the main model is 4 door, the main S3 model has always been 3 doors so it stands to reason the RS3 would be!

    Avants have always launched first:
    RS2 - Avant only
    B5 RS4 - Avant only
    C5 RS6 - Avant first then saloon
    B7 RS4 - Avant first then saloon and cab
    C6 RS6 - Avant first then saloon

    At a guess, I'd say IF the RS3 comes, it'll be sportback first then hatch (if at all!).
    For the record i'd prefer the hatch

    I just hope they don't chicken out and make it out of the exsisting body...RS models NEEDS flared arches. "They began nicely with the S3 8L, lost their balls with the S3 8P and now they can make it even with the RS3 8P.."
    My old car.. Still miss the lil rocket :-)

    I agree with you, and I think that could be on the cards. Look closely at the front arches in these pics, ther are rolled out, highligting a wider track?
    Compare them to the standard rear arches, they have a flat vertical element on the arch...
