    Tracking our new RS3?

    You think the most important thing is a standing start from a perfect launch? I would say that's one of the least important things when it comes to real world driving. In gear responsiveness is much more of a benefit. The RS3 might be heavier (not sure that's right anyway), less powered, etc...

    That difference in rolling acceleration tho... Surprised Audi hasn't banned use of their press cars in 'versus' videos that aren't drags only. First carwow ruining people's weekend, now Joe Achilles ruining people's week.

    Basically it's just more of the same from Audi.... From standstill it beats most cars, but once traction is taken out of the picture and it's rolling it's pretty average amongst other performance cars. Was really hoping the RS3 would buck that trend.

    So real world, all M cars from 2014ish onwards ruin the RS3 apart from in a traffic light grand prix, and there's nothing in it with the A45s. Gonna have to really pick who and who not to play with when on the move. Carwow has probably just ruined the weekend for the majority of people in this...

    Turbo Blue... the colour that takes a £50-60k car that looks like it should be a £30-40k car, and makes it look like a £20k car.

    Lol... this car is losing parts by the day. At least those who were disappointed that RS3s don't come as a 2 door hatchback and had to order a sportback there's now a good chance their cars will arrive with only two doors anyway. [emoji23]

    If they used hooks to lift finished cars off of the production line, I imagine this is what the hooks would look like and where they would be stuck.

    Tracking our new RS3?

    In the way? Do you sit in quite a low position then? Cos the only way the HUD could get in my way would be if my focus when driving was the road just in front of my bonnet... Otherwise I literally don't see it unless I look down from my natural line of vision. I guess what people do and don't...

    I'm yet to meet anyone who says HUD is distracting. I haven't seen Audi's version so maybe it's BMW's version that isn't distracting. I've lived with it for a couple of years now and wouldn't want to be without it. Unless I'm actively looking at it I don't even notice it's there. In fact, it...

    Overinflated RS5 Prices or Not?

    Based on the current value of my car (which is a direct competitor of the RS5) versus what it was being listed for a year ago, I would guess the asking price hike of an 17/18 RS5 is pretty similar... Therefore around 5%-10% / £2k-£5k more than it was pre-covid.

    RS3 Configuration (let's see what you've got then)

    Daytona is (or used to be) a nice colour, but it bores my socks off. I've got an M4 in mineral grey, which is pretty much BMW's version of Daytona.... a nice paint colour but now as interesting as watching paint dry. Choosing from the colours on offer for the RS3 feels like a case of picking...

    Anyone want my REALLY early order - Vorsprung Saloon RS3

    Yeah I realise it... you hate nardo, and whether I like it or not I reckon your idea of why so many people went for nardo applies to absolutely no one lol.

    Anyone want my REALLY early order - Vorsprung Saloon RS3

    People spent thousands on a new car but spec'd "the worst paint primer/colour ever" because it's free?? Doubt it.
