Are the RS3's still being limited in numbers? Or general production?

Soul for a reason - an engine in my opinion can make or break it
i'm no handling type by any means and i haven't modified mine and never will, it suits me just fine.
Here is a link to a video showing the new RS3

Thanks dave! What crap video though
Engine sounds like a Diesel with those rattly tappets :(
+1!! Sounds AWFUL
hmm might have to put my head under the bonnet on mine then, not sure I got a bag of spanners like that rattling around under my hood.
What you guys think of this oil pump system? long term disaster?
Yeah mine sounds the same. I think it's the injectors rather than the tappetts, plus S3 and 2.0TFSI engines have a large engine cover that will probably mask some of the noise. With the 2.5 RS engine it's mostly exposed. To be honest I think Audi skimped a bit on the engine details with that engine...
I actually thought it was a diesel! lol... looks like someone has leaked the rushes.
Looks better in the realistic pics than stylized ones IMO, but why the feck they made the front arch wider and the rear regular is beyond me, from a look and stance perspective the rear flare ala S3 8L would have looked better than front big ass bumper or not.
Want but cant afford :) settle for S3 sportback plus it will keep me occupied while I tweak the life out of her :rock::racer:
BTW, the talk of TFSi engines all sounding like that makes the TDi owner happy :eyebrows: lol...
Until it has 3 doors and you have the ability to stir and serve up your own cogs I think I will have to pass.
Sorely tempted, but the red doesn't do it any favours in the pics.
Need to drive one before I write it off completely though.
It's like Dragon's Den..
It just doesn't tickle my fancy, I'm out too.
I am still sitting on the fence, waiting to see the List of options you can add.
I do think there is still a possibility they may release a 3 door version end of 2011, if a manual option not to sure, I think they are waiting to see how they sell, and how many say no to a 5 door but if you had a 3 door, Plus seeing how the BMW sells performs, I personally think they have released this earlier than they wanted to, still think they would have prefer a later 2011, but they are really making sure it is available to buy at the same time as the M1, and same price.
I am a little scared though as I have said above, some of it seems a rush job, ie, different wheel sizes, no fogs, and some other things, and they do make a few changes later on and release it in a 3 door with a slight different body kit for the rear?
I think I'd rather wait for this:
The Audi Quattro Is Go For Production
Stunning car. Although I'm afraid the price will be out of most of our price range. Rumoured to cost £85k.
The R8 costs 85k so I doubt that very much.
Dear Mr Cox
Thank you for your email dated 23/11/10 in reference to the RS3.
We have been informed that the RS3 will only be available as a Sportback and only with the S Tronic transmission.
Therefore, it is unlikely a 3 door version will be released. However, if there is to be any change to this information, details will be updated to the Audi website.
Thank you for your interest in the RS3.

Brakes look the same as the one you have pictured, only the wheels have changed. If they are an option then there is £10k off straight away!
Hopefully I'll get a lottery win between now and then, but at £60k it would be much better value than an RS3.
So your email really does mean nothing.
R8 < Models < Audi UK
Okay £87 OTR according to that but if you look in the configurator with no options it's 83!
Looks real to me? :huh:
RS3 approx 40k, TTRS approx 45k, RS5 approx 50k so maybe the quattro concept approx 55k hopefully lol
If its a manual and my finances allow it could be intresting
