    I'm not really overly keen on the cross hatching, I prefer this RS6 interior personally....



    R36 passat is nice too:

    Thought you might have proved me wrong, like that RS6 interior (Think you've posted it before?) but not so much a fan of the Passat, not as nice as the RS6 anyway

    Price a little, The basic is not to bad with the kit it has, it is by time you added another 5k on top of what I think should be some standard.
    No 3 Door, though again not a deal breaker.
    I was hoping for a different ignition key, like the new A4's just little things that would set it apart from an A3, the only real reason I would buy one was the engine.
    Sat Nav, just bad that they still use a DVD base with no full post code, and no poi's additions for speed cameras, though I doubt that will change.
    My car is not a year old yet, so gonna lose too much.

    As I said it is little things that all add up, so the RS3 would have to be something special. I personally don't think it will sell that well, and 2nd hand values gonna be poor as well, but like the TT RS now all ready

    Is that the Snow test like all the other Drives? I also read they made it into a 5 door instead of a 3 door to save weight, apart from the TTRS is a 3 door, I need convincing by someone one that a 5 Door weighs Less than a 3 Door, considering that the 5 door is also a few inches longer.

    I dont think so , review says it took place in the Canadian mountains . They say it handles brilliantly and i suppose they can only know that by driving it on a proper road.

    Errr you sure your dealer isn't telling you porkies? The car hasn't even had a decent road test yet. I am wary of your comments. Best to check with a different dealer. Have heard of these sort of tactics before to make sales. Salesman : It's closing in 10 days. Me: Il just go get my 40k.

    I placed my order a month ago, so he's no reason to use sales tactics on me and I've no reason not to believe him.

    So only a 2 month ordering window? Either way I doubt they are going to sell their full allocation for the year which is 500. Funny enough the 1M which all BMW enthusiasts are going crazy over has no limited numbers if you want one you order one. Simple. Although that doesn't stop me from being mega jealous of you Greg!!!!

    Absolutely right: 450 only* to UK in total - production begins next month in Leipzig with full UK release in May 11.

    RS3 is limited only by annual dealer allocation slots - oh and the order books are still very much open, so don't believe the dealer pish that they are closing in X days time. :/

    (*According to BMW Product Marketing email dated 10 Dec 10).

    I would have ordered the BMW had it not been the for the lack of AWD. With the more recent cr*p weather in this country the Audi seemed like a better proposition.

    Prior to ordering the RS3, I actually went to BMW to enquire but the tw*t working there was a little arrogant and didnt really seem to willing to help. BMW customer service sucks and Im not the first to have experienced that. Shame because i reckon this BMW will be the business.

    Sorry again, that they are a bit crap, but like i said it was very busy, and the missus had starting nagging by this point!!

    They are preety good pics considering the amount of people there!!! It does look nice and I am sure it looks even better in the flesh. Not a fan of the wheel colour, prefer the standard colour and I wish they had done something more with the exhaust... Other than that it looks spot on!

    Wow I like!!! I actually think the wheels look nice but wouldn't be my preferred choice if buying.

    Did you see the A3 concept? Saw a video on YouTube and it looks really nice

    My dealer is still "blagging it" by telling me end of May which i know is a load of b**locks! Apparently dealers are supposed to be getting there demo cars soon but again i've been told this won't be until July.
