    Ah right ... didn't realise there was a smaller VC screen, so yes that would explain it.

    Think they will reduce in size on the rear as like the RSq8 but if still fake sure someone will make some 3d printed copies with actual holes in em

    Or just get the drill out

    there have been rumours of vat coming down to 15% as it did the last time there was an major economical problem, if that is proven to be true, then good time buy??

    It's Classy looking that's for sure especially Daytona which is great for showing light and shadow in the scuplted door design, S-line or not apart from the alloys which are nice the S3 wont look much different externally than the car here...looks like it's got optional full leather front seats??,only got one quibble with the interior and that's the cup holders ye cant hide them and the position they are now in they should be,in the current car they are far less noticeable,steering wheel design has not changed one bit apart the buttons but glad they kept circular airbag cush instead of using the slightly squared off triangular one in other models...looks promising but l bet you this car retailed about £30k plus

    The last recession it dropped here's hoping it drops then as Audi's APR for the new A3 is 6-5% l think which is far too high

    Those vents above the dash infotainment screen are hideous. Externally it looks OK- seems only the new gen Golf has been beaten with the ugly stick in new gen A3/Golf/Octavia/Leon. It's not very popular next to the Golf 7.5.

    Can't see it happening this time around. Lots of pent up demand for cars. Plenty unaffected by COVID-19 if they worked right through or are about to start back. Hospitality (dining/sit in etc. hospitality and travel taking a beating this time, not many others.

    Last time VAT dropped to 25% you had to act quick - all the marques jacked their prices up to fill the gap within 6 months of implementation.

    That APR is insane considering where interest rates sit atm. No way I would pay that insulting rate to Audi finance.

    Merc layout/interior for me. The new A3 has grown on me but interior and rear bumper do not look good at all.

    Audi have dropped the APR across all of the new cars it seems, with the exception of RS cars. The new A3 @ 4.8%.

    Both industries are huge and laying off 1000’s of people including high earners such as pilots.

    The public are far more cautious, it will 100% impact the car industry, that’s just obvious.

    Yes mate - has Audi’s for 12 years but the new Merc swayed me & loving the 45s. It’s a very exciting car. I enjoyed 4 fun years with my RS3 and this is definitely giving me the same enjoyment & it feels special on every drive.

    That said, the RSQ3 is a superb car and will beat the Merc for soundtrack. My last RS3 did make a wonderful noise so that could draw me back for another 5 cylinder.

    I think you’d love either car pal :icon thumright:

    Please keep us informed how you get on. I must admit I love the look of the RSQ3 Sportback externally, but not a massive fan of interior. Somewhat more jacked up than the A45s which is one heck of a missile

    I saw a RSQ3 close up in Kyalamai Green a few weeks ago...horrid looking thing,at launch l thought it was different looking and attractive but seeing it with my own eyes, it's vulgar looking and thought why the **** would someone want a RS car of this type buy the faster Saloon or sportback or even wait for the new RS3 and most of all it aint that fast

    All choice mate, and that video is nonsense as putting a G wagon that is £120k or whatever is ridiculous, but yes we all know the M340i is fast, and not even a proper M. I personally prefer the jacked up (SUV’s) that many dont, hence why I have M40i X3 and not a 3 series or a A3 saloon or whatever.

    Plus it is plenty fast enough let’s be honest.

    But half the enjoyment is the soundtrack with the 5 cylinder engine ... it’s glorious !

    I think to say it’s vulgar is not warranted at all otherwise you could generalise many cars of that type in that way.

    I think it’s pretty cool of Audi to offer a 5 cylinder engine in that package for those that want that type of car but some fun factor performance & sound too.

    Exactly, i went from an s3 sportback to the new Range Rover evoque, whilst i love the luxury of my current car, i do miss the performance, but I’m not sure i want low slung car anymore as i quite enjoy being that bit higher up, and i dont need or want a big suv - and i think the rsq3 sport back ticks those boxes.. for me anyway..

    That is where I am at, and as we live on a pot holed gravel private track/lane, anything low slung is not a great idea.

    I can definitely see myself in a RSQ3
