    I always looked at the M5 is a possible next step as its pretty much an upgraded RS3 Saloon in a way, but I think it'd be too big for me. I don't think the exhaust sound is a step up though. More like a side step but it depends on what you like.

    The RS4 and RS5 are cool but they don't seem like the next step to me. I think its the exhaust noise that puts me off. The C63S is more like it but its RWD and I've seen some people complain about not being able to put down the power in that car. Next gen C63S might be 4WD so that should be good. The next M3/M4 will be but looking at that new prototype revealed today, that front grille is terrifying. Went from Beamer to Beaver.

    Totally agree, each to their own but I much prefer the sound of my new RS3 with OPF without the pops and bangs. Guy at my gym has a FL pre OPF and was giving it large in the car park and I could just see the look on some rather ‘fit’ young women thinking what a knob!! Haha

    Still running mine in so haven’t stretched the engine but the sound still suits me and definitely still turns heads enough.

    But if you’re looking for the sound with the pops etc then yes a FL pre OPF is the way IMO.

    Haha yeah. I can't see how anyone wouldn't call it that, just look at it.

    It's a shame because I think the rest of the car does look good but the front ruins it.

    The designer must be on crack, every new version comes out with a bigger grill, he’s addicted or he/she has a grill fetish.

    A tad too expensive for what I want to spend on a car mate - and the RS4 is too big for what I need.
    I'm almost considering going the other direction next time and spending a bit less.
    I'm enjoying zero payments on a car at the moment and mine is not losing any money at all currently in depreciation.
    I may look at a Golf GTi when the new one comes out next year, if the power is up as expected it could be a good car to drive with enough speed to make it fun.

    Not sure if you guys have seen this yet. The new RSQ3, comes in Sportback and Regular versions. Got the same 5 cylinder I think as the PPF RS3 but with the rev limiting from the new regulations, so this is pretty much how the next RS3 will sound if they don't change it. Also note how the 0-62 time is 4.5 seconds, pretty slow for this engine I think, PPF effects it this much?

    love the looks, would the extra weight of this bigger car slow the 0-60 time by a fraction, must be more weight to this than the rs3 would have
    could be wrong though, as i normally am

    Yes would think a bit of extra weight would affect by a few 10th’s?

    Engine in next RS3 would surely be tweaked for more power than current 400ps? RSQ3 presumably also heavier so would affect the 0-62 time.

    Real problem is that by the time the next RS3 is out, the EU will have decreed that it must sound like a Dyson.

    RS4 still 450hp though so Audi are a bit stuck surely?

    Next RS3 must be a couple of years away at least so sure by then it will be at least approaching 450ps. It needs to get back ahead of the A45 AMG for starters!

    Big step up in price, too!

    New M3 with essential options is going to be way north of £70k.

    Agree, M2 xdrive (if they do one) more likely to be similar price bracket.

    Really odd clicking sound from that RSQ3 video when revving. Nice throaty 5 pot sound seriously dumbed down and muted

    And if its like the current M3/M4, it'll depreciate fast. For example, 18 plate M3 Saloon with 3,721 miles is £42,500 - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201909041850293?

    But an 18 plate RS3 Saloon with 2,000 miles is £41k - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201905248297040? , this one with 2,400 miles is £42k - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201906269421288? , and this RS3 Saloon also 18 plate with 3,000 miles is £44,500 - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201905077687953?

    So RS3 Saloon has depreciated way less than an M3 has since base M3 costs £59,905.

    Or is it saying the EU will allow tuning companies to alter the mapping. But warranty still void with Audi?

    When we leave the EU, will this mean our cars don’t have to eu compliant. Hopefully we can get some drama back in these RS’s

    Never going to happen, when we ‘leave’ I’d expect we’ll shadow most of the EU regs as a minimum.

    Plus can’t see Audi creating something different just for the UK from the factory.

    We are unlikely to leave the EU. But yes if we want to trade cars will have to be EU compliant, yet another reason why we aren’t leaving

    ‘Unlikely we will leave the EU’ don’t get me started, the majority voted OUT, why do so many not get this

    Roll on end of October, free from the shackles of the unelected members of the EU parliament.

    You can see it in the R8 video too which it effects a lot more than the RS3. I'm pretty sure my RS3 doesn't rev higher than 4k rpm at idle though, might need to check. The R8 is limited to 3k rpm which is really low for an NA engine.
