    General consensus is no one really knows - not even the dealers. It's all speculation, no fact.

    I dont know what audi are waiting for - the market is ready for the new S3 now, isn't it?

    Autocar lists the car as summer 2006, along with the S6 and S8, but know one knows for sure.

    Have to agree, had my MOT done yesterday and spoke to the salesdude. Like said before, until Audi UK themselves release S3/RS3 information nothing is confirmed. He seemed to think that they may not do it for quite a while due to the poor takeup of the 3.2Q.

    you should have told him poor take up of 3.2q is probably due to people waiting for s3/rs3!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The thing to look out for is the new TT which is due at the end of this year. If the top engine in that is a 3.2 FSi with 300bhp then there will be an S3/RS3 to come in my opinion.

    Thats interesting. I wonder if Audi will do what the did when the first S3 came out - de-tune it so it had less BHP that the TT? Hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me.
