    The business and sales managers are proper petrol heads, they were loving the RS3 and had lots of great stories about their own and various customer antics. I would have had a shot in their red RS6 demo too but it was out at the time!

    It's a week of Audi based adventures so more later!
    i might have been one of those story's as that's my local Audi dealer you were only 20mins away from me haha should have popped by to say hey.

    You could well have been, they told me they sold their 2 demo RS3s quickly, they like RS models and R8s! RS4, RS6, R8 V10 Spider and the R8 V10 plus all together! Seems a good dealership, impressed with the attitude and friendly chat with customers.

    The RS models are wolf's in sheep's clothing alright and definitely disproportionate to the dady of the family - I.e. R8 - but only in terms of 0-60.

    Granted the R8 is simply awesomely pleasing to the eye, with even a 5 year old V8 still carrying the respect of a real supercar. They sound awesome too and let's face it, they are the dream of all Audi owners at some stage or another.

    However, put the RS3 alongside a V8 one from a standing start and if the opposition is not focussed they could end up smoked......a guy in my estate is convinced mine has been 'modified' when we occasionally sit side by side every other week as we head to work.....he now appreciates that Black is the fastest :-)

    I would guess that could be the same in an APR tuned RS3, with a track driver tootling along on the welsh twisties when all of a sudden a V10 baby hits the rear view mirror and "ka chow" says lightning :-)

    NOW...another similar RS3?!? ...Phantom Black RS3 with Buckets, folding auto dim mirrors, privacy glass, Bose, Alu inlays, light & rain sensor pack, black exhaust tips and now Scorpion decat pipes and MPSS rubber!

    REFUNDED - Phantom Black RS3 with Buckets, folding auto dim mirrors, privacy glass, Bose, Alu inlays, light and rain sensor pack.

    GONE - S3 SB BE - '10 plate in Ibis with Buckets; RNS-E; tech & comfort pack; Revo stage 1; Milltek TBE; BBS CK 19's in Anthracite on Asseymetric rubber!

    All good points Elton, no one 'needs' an R8 but I still can't help wanting one it's a true object of desire. The sales and business managers at South Hereford Audi are proper petrol heads, one has an Elise the other quite a special Nova rally car! They were loving y RS3 too. When I said "one day" about buying the V10 Stronic they both said "you'll have more fun in the RS3" - now they might have been being nice but they seemed to mean it. I need the space and practicality for now so the V10 remains a one day car for me - but I would like the upgraded Stronic box in the next RS3!

    I was actually there collecting this A1 with my Dad but you can't help but admire the R8s and RS cars on show:













    Got to chuckle at the sign in the background...urm I don't think so!





    And finally the lovely wavy brakes, appearing on many a replica soon I suspect!

    You are definitely right mate - your shots of the V10 are simply orgasmic and even if our RS3's were a second faster, if I'm being honest I wouldn't give a monkey's if I had the keys to this baby. Infact I've just done a search on Audi used cars for R8 V10's and then sorted by cheapest first - got a 60 plate Spider with 18k for £72k and I began to think......instead of buying another RS3 in April following a full refund on my first one, instead I could have added £10k and then maybe negotiated a few k off the list price and settled for a small and modest £10-15k finance. When I ran this by "her indoors" for approval, she said "you may have just hit 40 and began entering a mid life crisis but unless you want to become a MR Bobit go get a tattoo or a stud!!" So back to reality ;-)

    Nice looking A1....side by side I'm thinking "mini me" ;-)

    Mini me, I like it!

    A V10 R8 and A1 runabout would be happy fleet for me. My Mrs was also set against an R8 after a friend bought one and started getting rather too much of the 'wrong' sort of attention - in the Mrs eyes anyway. She has changed her mind recently though after seeing the R8 V10 Stronic advert...she actually said "oooh you have to get one of them" and even better "we don't need 4 seats in your car"!! Still this won't be happening just yet!

    Interestingly, 'Bagey' posted a photo of this car taken on its first day out, sans registration plates, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (original suppliers were Audi Newcastle-upon-Tyne), and he thought it purple. I nearly fell of my chair when I saw his post; see: RS3 Discussion Thread: Post #713 dated 13th September 2011; and then Posts: #746, 751, etc.

    It really is an unusual (old VAG) colour that does change with differing light: we love it!

    Enjoy, we do...



    Do you live in Newcastle?? I bought my Misano Red RS3 from there and live not too far from Newcastle Audi

    No Fletch, in Staffordshire. My RS3 came into the UK via Newcastle Audi, was ordered by the classic Ferrari agents DK Engineering (but the owner preferred his BMW and so they advertised the car on PistonHeads and I was fortunate, having just sold my Lotus Elan Sprint after 37-years of ownership, to have the cash available to bring Bluey back to Staffordshire - and that's where she's staying for some time yet.

    The Elan and the RS3 have surprisingly similar road manners...



    Ya see, I like small, quick cars; lots of 'go' in a small envelope, and the RS3 is just that. Tried the TTRS but much prefer our 2.0 TT; just have to work it a bit more, and that's fun too. Tried the RS4 (I like it lots but a fun 9.7mpg and getting bigger...); the S5 and RS6 are fast but loosing the 'quick', neither of which would do well on the ducking and diving roads I regularly drive. Same for the R8, it's too big mannnn…. and everyone notices the R8 way before you've arrived anyway. No, the RS3 sans badges for me is a right laugh! The number of people who ask: "pray tell me sir what sort of A3 is that", or words to that effect, makes it so worthwhile…

    VBH, the thinking mans crumpet. Unfortunately she knows squat about our beloved RS3. Just listen to her deliver the spec of the car, see if you spot her error?

    Cornflower blue in all it's glory...



    Go see Post #713 on the "RS3 Discussion Thread" and you'll see why 'bagy' said (13th September 2011): "seen this yesterday on my way to work purple rs3", it's all in the overhead lighting...
