    Have spoken with 2 dealers in the past 24 hours who have confirmed that the order books will re open for the RS3 in week 4 of 2019. Individual colours will be able to be able to be ordered from June. Have placed my name on a waiting list with a dealer, no deposit required and still have managed to agree a substantial discount.

    I can't wait, have a couple of months to decide the exact spec and the colour. Do I go for a stunning Catulyna red or an individual colour?

    Isn't a new A3 due out in 2019? Old model very quickly, just saying.

    I wouldn’t believe the dealers - however if that’s correct you may get your car next Summer. Lol. I would calm down a bit.

    Tbf I have been waiting since Aug to understand what Audi are doing, WLTP have added months to this timescale. Won't wait until the new shape arrives, need a change from the S3 had it for 7 years now.

    They have back orders on all their cars. People have been waiting months since ordering. As TX says, if the order book opens up in January, you'll be looking at summer by the time all the back orders have been build and delivered.

    Source? A bit early by my reckoning. Would be a another year or two I would say.
    8L was 1996 (P Plate)
    8P was 2003 (53 plate)
    8V was 2013 (13 Plate)

    All above are circa

    What % discount out of curiosity. This was one the things that held me back from buying new as the discounts were feeble so settled for a used PFL

    If the past is any indication, we will see the 4th gen car in Geneva next March. We might also see the new interior as soon as next month at CES in Las Vegas, which audi used to present the 8V A3 as well as the 8S TT interior.

    Not to shine a negative light on your chances of getting a new car, but I’d be very surprised if the order books reopen. People doubted the FL RS3 happening 18 months ago with that huge gap between then and the 2019 release, this really is close now....

    That is when we’d expect to see build slow down and the beginning of deposits being taken for the new A3, not the old shape RS3....

    I would be surprised to see a 4th generation RS3 on the road in 2020.

    I tend to agree but you never know. Perhaps new A3 out towards end of 2019 with an RS3 coming end of 2020, but more likely 2021. That would certainly be consistent with what went before.

    I got 9% off a new built car to my own spec.

    The only caveat to that would be, that not so long ago, RS models were always introduced at the end of the production cycle. If memory serves me correctly, they were still building B7 RS4's when the all new A4 was in production.

    But given todays RS models are introduced early into the model cycle, then I can't see it happening myself.

    I got didly off mine but then i ordered in July 17.
    Next time, if I'm in a position to order a 4th gen car, I'll wait a little longer !!
