    Do people notice your RS3?

    That's strange, I get people trying to race me fairly often nowadays. Usually is the Fiesta ST's or random BMW cars/transit vans. Really annoying tbh, sometimes my ego takes over and I have to show them the power of the rs3 lol.

    Do people notice your RS3?

    Yeah mine does but mainly from car guys. Latest one was a guy in a range rover.

    RS3 Potential Sale

    What car you thinking of getting next? I really struggle to think of what to go for. Maybe get a cheap to run hybrid and a 2 door coupe/old supercar. The closest equivalent to this car would be an RSQ3, while I do like how they look, it would just be a higher up, slower and worse handling car...

    How does the car drive compared to the XC40?

    Next Gen RS3, or not ???

    Yeah I think the same about the RS3 Saloon and think getting 2 cars would be the only way to beat it, 1 on the comfortable daily driver side and 1 for the exciting drives. Personally I wouldn't go for the R8 V10 Performance and would go for a V10 Plus instead for similar speed but more sound to...

    Next Gen RS3, or not ???

    Why not just get an R8 V10 Plus? I doubt you'll notice the extra performance the new car has but you'll definitely notice that its more muted and the soft limiter at idle is annoying too. It's also a good look at how the car will depreciate as you can get used ones for under £80k now and...

    Facelift Pirelli Tyre Defects - Response

    I agree with T-1000, they won't do anything now. Most they'll do is acknowledge it for the next RS3. Best chance you have of manufacturers fixing these kind of problems is when the car just comes out.

    Next Gen RS3, or not ???

    Very true. This RS3 when it came out had a bit of hype to it too and from what I remember didn't get discounted that much until the PPF version came which was end of gen anyway. In terms of future cars, I'm also looking at used cars, maybe a 991 911 Turbo/Turbo S or for something more special, a...

    Next Gen RS3, or not ???

    Just a random thing I found while looking at car leasing, the A45S is cheaper than the RS3 so I don't expect its residual value to be good. Just take a look at here - https://www.carwow.co.uk/mercedes/amg-a45/lease?contract_type=pch You can get an A45S for £415 on lease, 48 months, 8k miles...

    Next Gen RS3, or not ???

    Haha reading this comment back now, I realised they actually made the interior worse than the Q3. Heres 2 pics comparing them. Removed the climate temp control wheels with, I think touch sensitive + and - minus buttons. I don't like how misaligned the air vents are now on the new A3. Gear lever...

    Facelift What the new RS3 could look like...

    Cant find the quote because it was in an Instagram story Q&A and he doesn't save them but I remember it mentioned someone at Audi told him it would. He does mention it here too but its from May 7th and he calls it rumours in the post, might be because he doesn't want to mention an Audi employee...

    Facelift What the new RS3 could look like...

    Auditography on instagram was saying that the Audi guys he talked to told him to expect the same 400hp and engine as the RSQ3. To me, it doesn't look like I'll change to the new RS3. It will cost more, be slower, sound worse and I don't like the new interior (touchscreen only infotainment, new...

    Insurance hiked up this year???

    Ahh ok. I was thinking it might be some independent person who brokers your insurance. I sometimes see people on instagram talk about getting car insurance from some person, might have been daniel khan mention someone.

    What broker are you referring to? I don't think I've ever used one.

    2019 RS3 gets smashed by AMG A45s & M2

    It is impressive how much power they get out of it, can't help but question its durability though. And yeah the sound was laughable, I swear a Golf GTI sounds better.

    Next Gen RS3 Pics revealed

    The RS6 looks great but this to me doesn't look as good. The front seems like its just 1 big grill separated by some plastic parts. This also looks like the black pack version, I think the regular/aluminium version will look even worse. It seems similar to the RSQ8 front but with less body...

    Facelift UK RS3 Saloon/SB (400ps) Order Thread...

    Nearly a year since I got mine and I still love it. Just saw this article on Top Gear, I agree the next car will have a worse interior. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/opinion/opinion-rip-greatest-car-interior-21st-century

    Finally - RS3 pre v post WLTP

    Yeah you won't notice it unless you drive both daily I think which I guess only people who work at Audi do. Someone in the other thread did mention the dyno being 2WD only?

    Finally - RS3 pre v post WLTP

    Like DJAlix said, the pre-OPF car has the pan roof so will weigh more, add in Yianni being almost 40kg heavier than Matt and it can make a difference when we're talking about tenths of a second. As I said in the other thread, the pre-OPF car being 2 years old must have had its first service now...

    2019 RS3 gets smashed by AMG A45s & M2

    Don't forget weight. Yianni weighs nearly 40kg more than Matt and the pre-OPF car has the Pan Roof which add more weight too. Being 2 years old, it must have had its first service now and likely a tyre change as well. Can't really tell which tyres they are.
