    No, the Americans have got it spot on, they live for their cars and cannot ever see them accepting anything like we do in the UK.

    We as individuals are being totally dictated too by so many, and successive governments have rolled over and let it happen.

    Roll on end of October, out of Europe for good, we can then try and rebuild our country and make Britain what it used to be.

    Only my opinion of course

    So in theory if we leave we should also not get them

    Will never happen, leave or not we’ll more than likely just mirror any European standards.

    Decent times recorded on this OPF RS3 hitting 0-62 in 4 secs dead and 100-200kmh times of 9.6 secs apparently very similar to the pre OPF cars?

    No idea if the 2nd comment is true and know that there has been some high 3 secs times recorded on pre OPF’s but 4 secs is very pleasing and could possibly get lower depending on fuel/driver/conditions etc.

    My PFL was 3.6s at Rockingham so you'd hope the newer cars would be quicker.

    .8 secs quicker than the manufacturers times, that’s pretty impressive and quicker than some stated times of the FL pre OPF!!

    All I’m saying is a 4 second recorded time on an OPF model is still damn good when it’s supposed to have been heavily affected by the changes, I’m sure someone will get sub 4 seconds at some point with the right conditions.

    Amazing, well done mate!

    Glad to see the performance is still pulling in figures below the stated manufacturers : )

    RSQ3 already facelifted, not sure why the RS3 is taking so long. But i reckon the new RS3 would have up rated power on the 2.5 and similar interior to the RSQ3..

    New A3 not out yet though so surely the RS3 will just be a more aggressive version of that when we eventually see it?

    I had a new Q3 for a day as a courtesy car while my car was being serviced. Not a fan of the new interior, in some places it is better though. The new screen looks great but I hated the fingerprint magnet gloss panels near it. If they improve the design for the A3 then it could be alright other than the fact that no MMI wheel is a downgrade. The drive select button was placed lower and kind of far away which is annoying. I prefer the older virtual cockpit UI to this new one too.

    Nice one, hope it’s a great new RS3.

    How does it work with negotiating discount etc if that’s even possible on a brand new release car, or are you just accepting the list price?

    I would imagine it would be a case of putting down a deposit now as intent to purposes then negotiate when prices announced, but yes, unlikely to be any discount I would have thought

    Yes makes sense. I’ve always managed a decent discount but on models out a good year or so, nice to have one of the first released I guess.

    Haha reading this comment back now, I realised they actually made the interior worse than the Q3. Heres 2 pics comparing them. Removed the climate temp control wheels with, I think touch sensitive + and - minus buttons. I don't like how misaligned the air vents are now on the new A3. Gear lever has changed to that thing (although I'm guessing the RS3 will still have the normal one?) The volume wheel has been replaced with a touch sensitive one which is strange to use. Aesthetically I can see some people saying that it looks better but functionally its worse.

    exactly right and to be one of the first 1 in a New model you will have to take the hit

    Just a random thing I found while looking at car leasing, the A45S is cheaper than the RS3 so I don't expect its residual value to be good. Just take a look at here - https://www.carwow.co.uk/mercedes/amg-a45/lease?contract_type=pch

    You can get an A45S for £415 on lease, 48 months, 8k miles, £3735 deposit. RS3 in comparison (https://www.carwow.co.uk/audi/rs3/lease?contract_type=pch), cheapest is £515, so £100 more a month for an older car. Doesn't seem like the A45S is doing well sales wise, or they got a bunch extra they need to get rid of so got cheap lease deals on.

    The RS3 was an expensive car once spec’d at over £50k but I understand for the A45s you’re looking at £60k+ which for a small hatchback for me is just getting ludicrous so I reckon the only way they’ll shift them is on competitive lease deals!

    I know the new RS3 will likely be similar pricing to the A45s so for me I’m out and will be looking for a lovely used car next along the lines of Porsche or the TTRS.

    I'm just glad that

    • They kept knobs and dials for the right stuff! YAY
    • They did away with the pop up screen

    But I like using the "gear stick" in manual mode in mine for shifting. Getting rid of that sucks.
