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 ;)

Totally agree. I had my 8P RS3 debadged front and rear by the dealer before I picked it up.

Ok Guys I reckon there are loads of you posted in other threads pics of your motors.

... But how about a few in here so they are in one place for us all to enjoy :)

For those of us waiting for our cars - this is the kind of thing that keeps us going :)

Looks great in nimbus - I thought it looked a bit light for nardo but was not 100%.

Exclusive colour then ?

It is a lot darker isn't it.

Looks great.

Did you have to pay Audi exclusive paint for that then ?

You can buy the vents individually if you want them. One of the german audi dealers sells them on ebay.de. Think they are roughly £60 each. :)

Colour looks great on the RS3.. surpringly I hated it on the earlier 8P Audi, neighbour had a Sport.. Just looked dull and boring but on RS3 8V looks great. For nicer than that Nandos 'fad' colour I reckon.

Went hand had my first look at my car today.
I was surprised that it looked more orange tint that what I was expecting. In the photos the colour doesn't look too bad.

The car looks standard from the outside apart from the rear tinted windows.
I quite like the standard look with the red paint while the aluminium and RS pack looks good with the darker colours.

I had a quick go at starting it up and have to say, even inside the car in dynamic mode it sounded epic when revved a liitle. :rockwoot:

So here are a few photos I took:-

Glad to see it has an engine.

Standard Honey-Comb grill.

37 miles already. I wanted it to be single digits.

The boot looks almost full with the sub-woofer and battery.

That's it until 1st March. Really looking forward now for the collection. :racer:

Car looks great x power and red really suits the RS3.

You waiting till 1st March ... that is a loooooooooooong wait knowing the car is there @ nearly quarter of a year !

At least you come 1/3/16 you will be picking it up ... you booked the 1st slot of the day with your Dealer - they will be busy that day so make sure you do :)

Thanks. I was a bit unsure about red, especially after seeing YouTube videos making it look Focus ST orange.
Seeing the red at the Audi Goodwood over the summer it looked good.

I was hoping the build week would stay around Feb time but it moved forward a bit more than what I would have liked as my finance would not be in place until then anyway.

Some dealers offer midnight collection but I don't know if I would fancy getting a new car in the middle of the night like Paul Wallace did with his A1.

Yeah red looks great and is very be-fitting of an RS model.

Hmm yeah I've never done a midnight pick up either and not sure I'd be that bothered and prefer in the day and with less crowds of people.

Mine is build week 8 and who knows may come forward a bit - I wanted 1st March pick up ideally when I ordered back in August but as things stand I will get it mid to late March which is fine.

Preview/teaser of pics to come in 3 days once it's been fully detailed/protected.

The orange peel is terrible on the factory paint! The door hasn't been touched while the rear quarter panel has had an initial flattening...

G'Day from down under. Took delivery of my Nardo grey RS3 this afternoon. Australian specs are a little bit different with sports exhaust, nav and a few other goodies as standard. Aussie specs are as follows:

- RS performance package 2
- RS design package
- Extended high gloss black package
- Privacy glass
- Roof rails in black
- Panoramic sunroof
