    It's from 2006. According to the date just below the pick. As far as I'm aware there isn't likely to be one until they bring out the next generation A3.
    2001 Audi S3 - AMK 210bhp
    Tarox F2000 discs front - Tarox 401 Rallye+ pads
    Tarox F2000 discs rear - Tarox 112 Strada pads
    Goodridge brake lines
    TT pedals
    N249 bypass

    Finally back on the road, have a HUGE list of mods and things to do now!

    If the TT-RS is going ahead then it may just happen after all. No point in developing an engine for a one-off limited run car.

    Aparently it'll look more like this...

    Although that look suspiciously like a photoshopped S3/RS6

    Dont think that be the RS3 as it doesn't even look as good as the pre-facelift and facelift model. Let alone as aggressive as the front of the S3 look. Just looks like a A3 which had a few mods!
    And the red audi an 2006-2008 pre facelift S3 can tell by the alloys and just looks like the painted the lower part black instead of the standard colour. Love to see the rs3 but as already said wont hear nothing till next year when the new a3/s3 model is out
    And as Mr G said i couldnt afford one brand new either lol
    So i'd be jealous

    Nice...but....

    From the same article..

    With the next generation A3 not scheduled to be unveiled until 2011, the possible launch of the RS3 is still several years away should the model be given the green light in the first place.
