    Hi guys I might be leaving soon but will still be around as I have the chance to buy a RS :icon_thumright: it'll be in the next couple of months but I'm either going to trade in the S3 for either of these 2 ........... A Audi RS3 or a Audi TTRS both second has but low miles I can't wait to finally own a RS. The RS4 did come into my mind but they are getting old and they are thirsty I know the other 2 are aswell but my brother used to get on average 15mpg from his RS4 where the others get low 20's I have heard.

    Iv driven a RS3 on a couple of occasions but I have never driven a TTRS. The RS3 is a great car don't get me wrong the only thing that's putting me of is the only auto option where as the TTRS you can get them in manual and I'm a young lad so trying to make my mind up.

    I'd look at your lifestyle and choose from there. Ever have more than 1 other person in your car, if so the answer is pretty clear to me

    Whilst i love the sound of the Rs3. I have always been anti a 'Family estate' being used as a performance icon, even back with Volvo using states in the touring car series. They may go and handle the same but i cant ever see 5 door estate as a nimble handling sports car, its like Peter Crouch he's a great player but doesn't really look it! (although look at the woman he has)
    Well you will choose what you want of course dont listen to us. Im just jealous i can't buy a car like that in that price bracket, and good luck to you.
    But for me without doubt it would be a BMW 1series M. The noise the scream of that straight 6 and turbo and the looks and everything makes me do a sex wee. Way better than both i have to say :) You must of considered one surely? A friend of mine has one, and one day she will be mine!!!(i whisper it to her everytime i see her)

    If and when they bring out a proper Rs3 as in hot hatch then ill be there selling my left goolie for one.

    you mean the 1M yeah? My brother swapped his RS4 for one I got to drive both and I'm not a fan yeah that's right probably the only person who dosnt like it. Don't get me wrong it's fast but I felt cramped in the cabin and also I'm not BMW's biggest fan so sticking with the audis.

    I love the RS3 for practicality but for handling and driving, I would say the TTRS would have to be the better option.
    Although I've never driver either, I have spent a bit of time in a TTS and a TT S-Line and the handling wipes the floor with my S3 so if that is anything to go by...

    I had a brand new S3 for 5 months before trading it in for a new RS3.

    This will probably piss a few people off but don't compare the S3 to the RS3. I loved my S3 to bits but the RS3 wipes the floor with it in the enjoyment stakes.

    The engine is a work of art, the gearbox is astonishing and the brakes epic (if you can ignore the squeal :) )

    Never driven a TTRS so can't comment there.

    Either option you choose will be awesome!

    It should be called the RSTT.

    Stupid Audi.

    ​It will be difficult for you to decide which to choose, both are stunning cars. :) x

    Ah fair do's and nice you've certainly had good exposure to alternatives. In that case Yes TTRS for me too or wait for an RS3 hatch :) how it should of been!
