    If you see an RS3 on your travels put a post in here. Just add rough location and colour of car spotted, but please dont put full registration number. Thank you.

    Just Spotted a Metallic Blue RS3 on the opposite carriageway to me on the M60 Bredbury area noticed Reg began with SV12 and it had Alu pack.

    Very nice to see another one a rare sight indeed the RS3 is.

    Don't ya' just love these RS3 machines Sean!

    Played with a variety of Audi's recently: RS4, TTRS Plus, RS6, S5 Coupe, and today a short blast in an V10 R8 (thanks to a kind man at Stafford Audi) but I kid you not this RS3 doesn't disappoint, ever; it is a seriously mean (but discreet) piece of kit.

    Ok, and the compelling (de-cat) noise...

    From home to Nottingham today to purchase/collect four 18-inch Audi wheels with Bridgetone tyres (ALL ex-TTS new for our own TT) and the RS3 carried them easily and returned 30.1mpg to boot; and only overtaken once in Nottingham, I was in the wrong lane and 3-wheels/tyres were masking my rear view, tsk!

    RS3 badges OFF again so back to discrete (and that's just a laugh as they look but aren't really sure(?)); but what an ACE ALL ROUND motorcar! Thanks Audi!

    And didn't see another RS3 on the journey (home/Nottingham/Stafford/home): ACE!

    Edited only to show just how good an RS3 looks loaded, and to prove it was an 'unfair' overtake due to my rear view being full of rubber...

    I first saw you about 2 cars in front me going along the dual carriage way near the park farm industrial estate, then I was behind you at the BK round about and as you went to the right hand lane I passed you....was very tempted to toot or give you some DV action - will do next time though. Car was looking in a very clean condition as well :) (unlike mine! haha)

    At 12.50 (ish) today a black RS3 with aluminium trim on the A5 close to the M6 Junction 12 and heading for Cannock - and looking very nice... :thumbs up:

    V5 prefix to the registration, I think.

    BLUEY and me on the A5 heading toward the M6; and onto the Granary Grill Weston Park for a Sunday lunch.

    Have to say that in the 40-months I've had my RS3 that only the 3rd other I've ever spotted on the road - seen lots on my drive mind.

    Saw a Metalic Blue (Sepang I think) with Alu pack one of these in South Lanarkshire, number starts KHO (Private plate), not sure about saying exactly where as it had some damage to one side, rear quarter both wheels, one tyre deflated. So I guess theres' a story or someone's bought it to fix up. Won't take much to repair and w\s a lovaly car otherwise, first one I have been able to have a decent look at up here. Anybody on here?
