    Won't this mean residual values on our S3's will drop?

    Shouldn't do if the RS3 is a totally different animal- which it SHOULD be!

    It is, and you're welcome to post it's just that there are loads of RS3 threads on here already, most of which contain more information that you have given in this thread!

    Lots of RS3 posts as various magazines have said since 2005 it is just about to go live.If I was to search for all RS3 posts the forum would probably crash

    Reading posts is optional. Read it before move along nothing to see.

    It is optional yes but there are quite a few things that get posted over and over again. News on the RS3 is one of them. Coincidentally the Clubsport pics get posted about once every 2 months by people who think it's brand new news.

    That said we don't really want to get the same stuff posted over and over again so we always advise that members use the search facility before they post a new thread.

    However, your links were to new stories it's just those stories for some reason are using old information. You weren't to know and I wasn't having a go, I was just saying it's old news.

    I undersdtand but the trouble with many forums is the moderators think they are some sort of net police, lets face it a few kb of extra data that people can read or ignore really is no big issue. I dont see loads of RS3 posts in this section and the copy of Autoexpress i bought today has pictures and potential prices of the RS3 which to me was exciting and new news.

    The RS3 is the oldest news in the world I have a friend who has had a Ł500 deposit on one since 2006 lol

    Whether I'm a mod or not is irrelevant, I would still have said it's old news! It's not like I deleted it or something.

    Anyway, I'm really surprised that a dealership would accept a deposit on a car that doesn't exist! lol

    Blimey you must be new to the car game, Audi stealers will take deposits on anything given half the chance !

    Anyway lets not argue over something so trivial lets just hope the RS3 shows it head soon.

    Well this week's Auto Express seems to think the RS3 will definitely be making it's debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on 17 September.

    Their article says it styling will be based on the Clubsport TDI concept car with the same blistered wheel-arches, low front splitter and diffuser-style rear bumper. Power will come from the TTRS's 2.5 litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine, which means output of 335bhp. The price tag is expected to be around Ł35,000.

    I must remember my camera when I visit the show on the way back from holiday.

    I'm borderline not-interested-any-more in anything to do with the RS3. If it is released and it looks like that clubsport thingy then

    If you can get a subtle sportback version (arch flares are a must however) then I'll have a look. Otherwise I'll just go back to spanking the monkey over boosted 135i coupes, sorry

    will it have the led lights? looks like it has the old ones. Doesnt look amazingly bad but.. somehow, could look better. Looks a bit overstyled.

    Well in Ashley, just noticed this little gem as it was in an RS3 thread, which I normally don't read .

    Nice plan and will be interesting to follow your progress, thread to follow?

    No it's not mate, if you look at the bottom half of the bumper you can see it's quite different.
