    I didnt even know they were out already, till I saw one on the road the other day.

    They do look good in the flesh....but as said, not worth nearly 50k!!!

    I don't understand at all why people buy cars brand new and then sell them within months/weeks/days of ownership!

    I was just thinking the same, it just looks like an S3 at a glance! Really disappointed with the seats and no real interior difference compared to any other A3/S3

    Because he didn't pay £47k for it, more like £42k and if he sells it (which he will) then it's an easy £5k... He is a trader after all!!

    I'd rather have an S3 then pay that kind of money for one of those! It needs to look like a 50K car which it clearly doesnt!

    It's not a £50k car though, it's a £39,900 car from Audi!! Which in turns makes it not so bad because if you spec a S3 Sportback to same levels as the standard kit on a RS3 it get to £38k!!

    Still doesn't look special enough to warrant the additional premium!
    Once you add some basic options your still on the other side of 42k

    What a let down, I expected as much, but this is a seriously poor effort from Audi, in fact it's been down hill since the last RS4.

    I also suspect there are going to be hoards of RS3 look-a-likes from the Halfords Massive now too, given the differences are so subtle.

    You sure about that ?? what extra std kit has a RS got over an S ? you saying that a RS is £1900 more than the same spec S.. mind you no one pays £38k for a SB now, real prices for S3's are dropping fast

    Local salesman told me that Audi were increasing the production run because all the cars sold out so quickly....

    Also I agree, not £50k's worth - Although I have seen SSC's website and some of the S3's are dearer than Audi - they must be top specced cars at that sort of money.

    Im shocked that out of everyone slating the audi looks not one person has mentioned anything about the engine.
    maybe you dont realise that its got a 5 cylinder turbo charged engine with sub 5 seconds out of the box
    with more potentials if remapped.
    the only gripes i have with the car are the front seats and lack of flared arches. i think the front seats should have been recaros as standard.
