    Confirmed discounts

    Same here, I was gonna hang on till the cars roll out to the showrooms and haggle for discounts but the equity in my car at the min outways any discount I could hope for. My deposit on this car is basically the equity on my 19 plate rs3, and the monthly is a hell of a lot lower, so like you I’m...

    Confirmed discounts

    Thing is I haggled the **** out of my rs3 sport edition and got a cracking deal, with this I thought there would be no room whatsoever, just asked the question if there’s any discount and the salesman went away. Came back 2 mins later and offered me that discount, just took it without trying as...

    RS3 UK Pricing and Specifications

    I’d say discounts quite soon… As soon as Audi Uk realise they fu*#ed up by short changing the Uk on spec options and the showrooms have more demonstrators than buyers cos pple are taking their deposits back and buying fiat chicachento’s cos they got better wheel, interior options and a flat...

    RS3 countdown to configurator

    I Know what you mean…. I went from a A45 to a 19 plate sport edition, I got a cracking discount and every option bar ceramic brakes. I was on a total high picking it up, if I go into the dealers to look into this model I’m sort of I can take it I’d leave it attitude. I think I’ll wait to see it...

    RS3 countdown to configurator

    The lack of interest/ disappointment on this thread alone since the configuratior opened. I think all rs3 owners who were willing to trade up and new potential buyers who saw all the vids and photos of the European model are *****d off now, I wonder how many are thinking I’m just gonna hang on...

    RS3 countdown to configurator

    The last few days the threads have been manic leading up to the configuratior, everyone hyped seeing the car in the Euro spec. Then here comes the Uk spec and ****** on everyone’s bonfire, mine included. I would have happily hopped skipped and jumped down to the dealers knowing I’d get no...

    Rs3 to rs4

    Hi Jimmy, My thoughts exactly, I dunno if I can justify the extra 30k for the jump up. I think 30k from a rs4 to a rs6 is more justifiable than rs3 to rs4, I get there is a more refined feel to the rs4 but performance and handling I wouldn’t think there is much in it, I’m thinking maybe wait...

    Rs3 to rs4

    Thanks for the input, if you don’t mind me asking what version rs4 did you buy, sport, carbon black etc..... and i know your rs3 would have been pre gpf but does the v6 sound as nice as the 5 pot? My rs3 has the gpf filter but as you know the 5 pot is sweet

    Rs3 to rs4

    Hello all. Has anyone went from a rs3 to a rs4? I have a 2019 sport edition rs3, panther black saloon which is fully loaded bar the ceramic brakes. I’ve been looking at a 2021 rs4 carbon black in nardo gray, not as much spec as the rs3 but has what I like. Any one done the rs3 to rs4 and have...
