I had confirmation from my local dealers today that the RS3 will now be launched Q1/Q2 in 2011. The Dealer Head of Business saw the car in the flesh last night in the sportback version and said it looked excellent and although not confirmed he imagined there would be a 3-door version as well.
The interior had bucket seats as standard and lots of RS reminders plastered on the trims, dash etc. It is the TTRS engine with an oval pipe either side...
My deposit is already down ;)
