This is an interesting video too. Good direct comparisons of 8v vs 8y. Even the interior really has moved on quite a bit. The old circular vents look quite dated now in the 8v. The 8v was and still is a superb car, but it has had its day as it dates back to 2013.

cant live in the past of the 8v forever ... gotta move on & embrace change mate.
I’d not seen the car up close until recently and most of the ‘issues’ I didn’t have a problem with (styling & quality) and the RS has only just had details released ... so yes the goal posts have moved - hence ordering one.

Just watched the carwow vid etron GT v R8 and if that is the Kemora Grey, I really do not like it.

agreed ... & also highlights what a difference sound makes. That R8 vs the muted etron omg.

The front of all current RS cars….which is your pick? Cue the tasteful debate :busted cop:

wow at least snake changed his tune, but you don't and just keep beating on the 8Y rs3, any reason you still in this thread tbh?

Jassy will slowly & reluctantly come round & see the 8y light ... mark my words, he’ll be in one at some point ;)

he’s just gotta put up with that TTS in the meantime & that’s what is making him grumpy lol

And you know I’m only pulling you pudding
Each too their own and all that
I was excited for 2 years
Then left a bit flat after the S3 reveal and ownership of the a7 also sitting in the boggo a3
But here we are and I am embracing change
Really starting to get the feel for this rs3

I do hope Jassy gets an RS at some point as the occasion they give cannot be experienced unless you own one. It’s not all about the power, of course that is a factor, but they feel special to own & make you smile when you drive them & hear them. They look special too with the enhancements over the S model. Yes I was underwhelmed with the S3 but the RS3 has won me over again as well as many of you other guys. Maybe the styling was a bit of a step change from the 8v, but having looked first hand and seeing the RS tweaks, it looks damn good, fresh & modern imo :icon thumright:

If you read between the lines jassy is getting on board but know his reasons why not at this point
New TTS
New model gremlins
Possibly a strong high price for a new rs3
Amongst others
Jassy talks sense but
I have none so I love it

And RS’s do trump all by some margin as far as retaining value.

I was the same I didn't like the 8Y at all when it was revealed but over time I have grew to like it .
Still not the biggest fan of the interior but the exterior I am fine with .

Funny enough I really like the interior, on the RS. Even the lambo vents….but needs to be specced up with design pack etc

I had a good look at German site with translator today and I looked at RS design pack. The basic pack is very subtle, think it’s red edging on seatbelts, red 12 o’clock marker and special mats. The plus pack adds the red vent accent# and red flashes on seats. I think that is the one to have.

Do you think Audi UK will include the Carbon rear wing ( I hope not) but I was thinking are they going to plaster it with carbon trim to match the Aero Pack that Mercedes put on the A45S. It suddenly crossed my mind that could be how it’s specc’d but surely Audi have more class.

perhaps if there is a "carbon" option maybe, someone will love it I guess. But I agree, it is toooo much on the SB but looks good on the saloon
