Do you have a link to the configurator?
Only good thing about this new S3 is that the current one will go down in price
...or will it?
I hope not
Haha you’re never gonna sell it mate
Agree with you as I was concerned that 8v will look like 8p, (which still looks decent for its age) after the new shape release.
I sill like 8p shape.. I kinda miss my 2011 A3
S3 configurator now working
"Select your Audi model > Audi configurator UK" https://www.uk.audi.com/uk/web/en/models.html
What is going on with them Side Skirts!
Not sure why they've done that - If you order a Vorsprung version (when available) in Mythos Black then they'll match I suppose
I see they are also still only doing black ariels - Did this towards the end of the 8v model - What a way to save a few quid
Those alloys and the small virtual cockpit look nasty
I've not had the virtual cockpit so can't really say - Does it look smaller or is that just the image - It's 10.25 I think - There's a plus option but only if you go up to Edition 1 or Vorsprung Models by the looks of things - Doesn't look like you can upgrade just on the S3
Not sure I particularly like any of the wheels to be honest and if you upgrade to 19" wheels again unless you have the Vorsprung Model (Standard on this) I can't see anywhere to upgrade to Mag Ride
There are definitely 2 options for VC. The small one comes as standard and then the bigger one is an extra.
here are pics of the base virtual cockpit ......
Just specced an S-Line which comes with Standard Virtual Cockpit but no option to increase to the Plus - Edition 1 gets the Plus as standard - Standard on S3 but no option to increase it either - Audi are loving the packs these days
The standard wheels on the new S3 are shocking which is a shame as the standard star wheels on the 8v
have a decent design guess it is Audi trying to make people upgrade and spend more money .
Can't say I'm that impressed with the upgrade options for the wheels though and being 19" no option for Mag Ride unless you get a Vorsprung seems strange
The wheel options aren't the best the trapezoid option was available on the 8v but in 18's
I hope there is more options to come .
Maybe always seems to take a while to get additional wheel options though and when you used to spec 19" it made you put mag ride on but now not an option - find it very strange to be honest
Gotta say Snake but that first picture (Even though its powered down). It looks absolute W~@k. There no style/meaning/reason to it.
It looks a complete mess
I’m sure the upgraded screen will be spot on but yeah the basic one looks very poor.
Lol. Tried to get inside one today at the dealers but they ain't playing ball...Something to do with a bug that's going around?.
It was just a standard S Line. To be fair I thought it was ok....Just ok...
What I really like was the RSQ3 that took pride and place in the showroom. They got rid of an R8 Spyder to make room for it...Really great looking car but it was priced at 67k
Not sure the screen will save it. It's just a gash dash from start to finish.
What BUG....Have l missed out on something...in the last wee while.....lol...You've defo got the SUV HEED on now....a saw a Turban Blue RSQ3 on Sunday and thought....Why Audi.....it was only £49k...only lol....
You need the Navigation Plus @Snake Pliskin to get the full Virtual Reality....
The cross stitching on the seat base will certainly stop the leather sagging - bit of an extreme way to sort that out though.
No way to say this without coming across as snobbish (not the intent) but is the small VC the same unit from the Seat - with the gauges up each side? Am sure graphics will be different for brand differentiation.
Lol as @jassyo06 says you’ve got the suv hunger now
The draw of the RSQ3 is that 5 pot
Have a butchers at a Porsche macan gts, it's got good reveiews
Salesman told me the one in the showroom was between 66-67k He wasn't sure on complete spec but he did say it had almost everything?
Was looking at used RSQ3's but they are holding their money well and I really didn't want to go back to 2014 year cars plus cash on top of my S3. For sure the 5 pot is an attractive proposition.
I can say that the vc in the Seat is 10.2". Not sure on the Audi version??
Out of my price range mate Thanks for the heads up though
