    How would you describe going from an S4 to an RS3.

    Upgrade or Downgrade?

    The owner has gone from an S to an RS - I would say that was an upgrade IMO :)

    Anyhow, :sign_welcome: to the forum.

    The RS3 area is pretty busy and some good information in there. I'm sure the first question you will be asked in that area will be regarding the brakes! lol

    So where are you from? Any pictures of the car?

    Copied from another forum im a member of, i don't need a big car and wanted to stay with Audi but didnt want an S3 as i felt it would be a step backwards the RS3 fitted the bill.My S4 was well specced B&O ,heated black and silver Supersport seats,convienence pack,technology pack high 19" wheels folding and dimming mirrors ,park assist plus with reverse camera,hill hold assist .The power delivery is a lot smoother due to the supercharger,the interior is a lot more comfortable as the ride is softer but so it should be because it is an S.The RS3 is more of a drivers car ,the positive steering and the grip is much better,its more nimble, which suits my needs as i do most of my driving around town and A&B roads .The Bose is good but not as good as the B&O but who needs either with the sound of that 5pot under hard acceleration. The S4 was Phantom Black which suited the car and looked great when detailed.The RS3 in Daytona grey with the optics looks even better and im looking foreward to detailing her.All in all they're two different cars and to sum it up in a few words its horses for courses.Oh and the RS3 is more fuel efficient so im doing my bit for the planet not that we worry about that sort of thing when we buy these cars.

    Power and Performance wise I'l always say its an upgrade however the interior of the A4/S4/A5/S5/RS5 I found to be so cozy, and convenient for me. Hence I ask the question.

    Welcome to the site Daytona.

    If the RS3 is missing any oem technology, give us a shout as we supply/fit in the UK :)

    Not always the case, the S4 technology is tbh way above the 8P chassis RS3, power wise, well, just search youtube for the S4/RS4 B8's comparison after a simple S4 remap, its immense, so there are variables to that discussion, but S4 tech wise is streets ahead of RS3 & as he advised, more comfy I'd say.

    Ohhhh - I didn't realise how much a remap could get out of the B8 S4 tbh.... I was looking at the stock figures etc. Just had to have a little google search to enlighten me

    Either way - both are very nice cars and wish I could be in the position as the OP is; going from a V6 3.0 supercharged saloon to the 5 pot RS3 with the best engine in it's category for the 4th year running now.
