    Due to be released 12 months after the new S3, so March/April 2014 according to multiple sources, including Audi management.

    Sounds little far fetched to me, as RS models aren't usually released that soon into a new model afaik, hope I'm wrong, think that may upset some RS3 owners now lol.

    TBH, if you're wealthy enough to blow over £40k on a small hatchback, you probably won't bat an eyelid at trading up to the new RS3 when it arrives.

    Much as I like Audis and A3s, for that kind of money I'd take a BMW 1M in a heartbeat.

    I was a through and through BMW man, until owning my S3.

    The 2015 RS3 will be more attractive than ever with >400bhp and tuning options. By then, the 1M will be out dated, not sure if there will be a new version or not. Although for similar money I expect you could get the new M3.

    Not sure where I will go next, but it will be an interesting battle between Audi and BMW. The sound of that 5-pot and the all-weather capabilities of quattro are a big, big swaying point over M cars.

    The way Audi are ****ing about releasing the S3 it will be 2015 by the time an RS3 arrives.

    I would not get too excited about the arrival of an RS3 just yet !

    Its defiantly not going to be next year... I think thats bull****. If it was next year, there would have been testing on the Nurburgring a while ago. Its usually around a year after they have been sighted on the Nurburgring
