    Virtual Cockpit Initialising Issue

    That's my point if it happens one time it is just a temporary bug. If it happens every time then it is more of a problem.

    Virtual Cockpit Initialising Issue

    This is actually normal - if you try and immediately access anything the system needs a little bit to start up and open the "apps". If it is super laggy all the time then it is time to take it to Audi but if it is now and again if you click on a function immediately then it is normal.

    Park assist

    I actually have used it quite a few times; I worry about damaging the wheels and if I want to park without having to pay as much attention I will use it. It won't do tight spaces and it isn't the most reliable as sometimes it will stop halfway through but when it does work it is cool and useful.

    Rust on bottom of wheel arch

    Do you have any photos? I suspect Audi would say it isn’t covered. But if you just bought it from an Audi dealer maybe you could complain to get it repaired as they sold it to you with a problem.

    RS3 8Y General Discussion Thread.

    Here is my video - it is not how I planned it excactly! I took two go pro cameras and the plan was to set one up facing me and one the track. However I was expected to drive. We literally had to run to the start line and then the stewards wouldn’t let me attach the cameras AND they were telling...

    RS3 8Y Picture Gallery Thread

    Here are some RS3 sightings at FOS.... That body kit is aweful on the black saloon. The stock sportback looks good, the best of cause is my blue LE. at FOS

    RS3 8Y General Discussion Thread.

    You are correct it was the hill climb - not the circuit but not everyone would maybe understand the difference so I kept it as simple as possible. If you watch the YouTube feed of today you can see me standing next to the yellow EVO while they interview the STO driver and also the previous Stig...

    RS3 8Y General Discussion Thread.

    Slightly off-topic. And I might open a can of worms but I just had the pleasure of driving the Huracan EVO up the Goodwood circuit myself. Having never driven a Lamborghini before or driven on any race circuit- let alone Goodwood that was an experience. And that V10 noise - magical! I also...

    Reviews

    With the exception of Shmee150 and possibly the magazines (who buys them anyway!?) the typical process is a 7 day loan from car manufacturers if they think your worth giving one to. Also remember that sometimes a video that is out on YouTube etc, may be from months or weeks ago as you try to...

    On-board Acceleration Runs

    I haven't timed myself but I love the fact that the wheels SPIN on this RS3. They never did that on the 8V. I mean I am not sure that is a good thing but it is fun...

    RS3 Build Tracker Spreadsheet

    I think it is pointless having a go at Audi PR about the car release. They have press cars and don't have any influence on production. As for giving the cars to influencers - I never got an RS3 from Audi PR; despite them knowing me and asking literally every week. As for that story @dousedinmud...

    RS3 Build Tracker Spreadsheet

    I mean honestly, this isn't acceptable - the same position as you and I ordered 11 August 2021 - to order on launch day and not have the car for 18 months is terrible. This isn't a hand-built Bugatti. It is made in a factory.

    I just heard today my car - ordered on LAUNCH DAY has moved from week 36 to week 3 of 2023... so don't expect a car anytime soon. I have had an LE for a couple of months now and I am very happy I have it considering the delay. I would be very unhappy now if I didn't have it.
