Pic's only please
Know one got one yet then ?
Not just yet, but here's a stop-gap for now!!
I guess that will have to do for now!
All my photos of my car so far arrival, detailing, old & new. I'll add the pick up ones when i finally get out of on September 1st...
Both look great tbf! Who cleaned up the RS3 in the pics, the garage or someone else?
My friend did it for me, he dose detailing as a hobby. Got all the equipment & just loves it
Great looking motor
Bet your enjoying it today
wish I had an rs3
Here's mine after a new car detail
Lookin' good Cav!
Quick write up Cav for those of us still waiting?!
From the start up bark and crackle as it settled into idle I knew I'd made the right choice cancelling my A45 order and waiting a little longer for this.
For me the sound dominates proceedings all the time. I haven't taken the car out of dynamic mode as I'm in love with that 5 pot warble and bang, crackle on downshifts. A lot of people have mentioned that it isn't aggressive enough or 'RS' enough in the looks department. But I disagree. No it's never going to be an RS6 but in the correct colour and with the correct extras this little beast can look mega imposing.
It helps I have changed the wheels as I've got a lower offset helping the hunkered down look that RS models are renowned for.
The sound is incredible with the sports exhaust. The howl at just over 3k revs is astounding and really gives you goosebumps as it starts to hard charge towards the red line. But nothing prepares you for the violent machine gun crackles and pops as you downshift into a corner. Wow.....
I have to admit the car does have its flaws in the handling department. It is quite nose heavy. Nothing drastic but I wouldn't enjoy this thing on a track, although neither is it built for that purpose. As a road car this thing is formidable and not much would see which way it went down a country lane. The Quattro traction and mid corner grip is hugely satisfying once you've got that nose into the corner, it'll just hold on.
All in all I can't see many being disappointed with long term ownership of the car. 28-30 mpg is achievable but put your foot down and that sinks.....fast! Great build quality and some great reactions from fellow enthusiasts and drivers alike make this a really rewarding car to enjoy and own.
5 stars from me!
All detailed up and ready to enjoy!
Cambridge Audi have a used Black (Panther) Black on the Audi.co.uk used cars section. £49,990!!! Hoping mine will look a bit like this and glad I'm having Titanium wheels and no red callipers. Can't seem to down load pictures but they are there for all to see on Audi.co.uk used cars and search..
For all you black lovers
Once you go Black, you never go back!!
That looks amazing.....
Mine will be pretty much like that but with the Quattro front
Mine too. Have gone with Alu mirrors and brake calipers though.
Ali mirrors here too actually. Going to get dealer to get me some carbon ones in to take away and chafe when I fancy it. Red brakes tho
Like the look of carbon mirrors but thought the Red calipers drew too much attention whereas I like the stealth look. Personal choice though.
I always wanted my b7 rs4 brakes to be red so when the same ones with option of red on the rs3 was there it was a must hope they don't look out of place against the all black. Went black leather super sports with red stitch
Take a look on audi.co.uk used cars RS3 ... There's a black one with Red calipers ..I'm not sure the effect works so I didn't go for them .
I like it happy days
I really had discounted the RS3 as my next car....why on earth did you go and post this photo up????? haha Looks lush!!
The all black does look very nice indeed.
hey guys..anyone saw somewhere pictures of the new rs3 in Nogaro blue??
Spot the S3??...lol
Not mine, but one I drove at the dealers:
So when are you expecting delivery @MA3RC ?? haha
Guess we should really post our pics here as suggested by xBox elsewhere:
I didn't realise that de-badging removed the front badge as well.
I specifically asked for the front badge to be removed so I don't know if that's just me or if "they all do that Sir"! Anyone else de-badged and can confirm?
On the configurator it deletes both front and rear...
Not sure what I prefer tbh...
I like the low key nature of no badge on the basis that those in the know will know whilst the vast majority won't! Tbf most people just walk past it which is fine by me
