    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
    After all that!!

    I told you it was overpriced and pretty un-special about 5 months ago. Still sometimes you have to go through the process I guess, but I think you've made the right choice mate, I can't help thinking this is probably going to be one the least remembered RS models Audi have ever produced.

    Think the rear tints are worth getting? The above colour is Suzuka Grey by the way.

    Welcome Like. Your spec is the same as mine although mine is Suzuka. Did your dealer tell you how many cars are coming to Sweden?

    That looks awesome. I am now convinced I made the right choice in changing back to Suzuka. Roll on September (unless it gets put back again...)

    Greg, you changed back? Thought you didn't like it in the flesh?

    I swapped my matt pack for Black. Saw an RS5 in Suzuka with Black pack - looked the nuts!!

    I know, I know. Just can't make up my mind sometimes. I've decided to take my chances, haha.

    Convinced that Suzuka is the colour to go for though, especially after seeing that pic. Should look the nuts with the black styling pack.

    I totally hear what your saying. I feel like i'm taking my chances, but based on the feedback from everyone it seems like the colour to go for.

    Was ment to be getting another s3 sportback but the deal has fell through. So I won't be getting it anymore.

    On the other hand I have decided to speak to a few dealers who told me different answers on the availability of the rs3 after about 5 calls around I spoke to one of the dealers and they have came back with this email about my order:

    " good news your car*has been accepted on the ordering system when the car get a build week we will keep you updated with emails about the progress."

    They advised me it wouldn't be until 2012 until I will be looking for my car. So lets wait and see what happens. Hopefully sooner!

    But ther is still spaces there from what other dealers have been saying to ppl!

    Hello,

    Also a newcomer. I wanted to find out what the dealers are telling you all in relation your RS3 orders? Feed back on mine this week was "Q3" i.e. Jul, Aug or Sept. This troubles me. I'm told 2,700 units are being built, 500 of which will be RHD. They're being built in Hungary. Surely an organisation of Audi's size and resources can build and ship these units in less than a 3-6 month period. Not even considering most orders where placed back in January.

    Incidently, I've also gone for Suzuka with Black optics.

    Welcome Moontang!

    It turns out that these cars are not being built on Audi A3/S3 production line. They are being built by Quattro but i think what you have been quoted in falls in line with many of us who have ordered. I have yet to be told any different to the original date i was given (Mid May) but thanks to those on here i think i know where i stand and its far from Mid May! My order was placed First week of Jan so i'd like to think i was at the top of the list but who knows!

    When did you place your order?

    Cheers for the welcome.

    I placed my order 3rd week of Jan and was also told mid-May, early Jun - latest. I guess this was the initial guideline.

    Interestingly, in the call with the dealer this week, they mentioned that the Audi UK dealer network will of course receive their demonstrators first. However, those who have not sold any of the 500 allocation will be allowed to retail their "demo" units almost immediately. Which I guess means there's a chance that anyone not sat in the queue could effectively be one of the first owners, albeit a car they did not spec. The final comment was that another client who placed their order prior to me has a delivery date of Q4. The only major difference in spec was that they'd opted for the upgraded seats.

    Boys - unless you understand Dutch this will mean nothing. But being able to see and hear a Suzuka Grey RS3 along with black optics was enough for me.

    Wow! What a sound, my kids are going on eBay!!
    On the paddles, it looks like he's driving a manual, I know it can't be but he's really exaggeratiing his movements

    It also sounds like the car is blipping the throttle on down changes? Is this the car or is he doing something to make it do this?

    Thing that annoys me most about this car, is the fact they've just stole a set of 18's off cars from the other range. There should be special edition alloys only for this car, it's REALLY crying out for a set of 19's imo!

    Cannot wait to MTM get their hands on this!
