So - I'll start.

Order placed yesterday and confirmed today. Specification is as per the signature below. Ordered through Ridegway Audi Newbury (with Louise). On waiting list, pending overnight order transfer Audi AG sales allocation team who will allocate Buildweek (so I'm led to believe)..... Trading in MY15 S3 (Oct 14); non-PCP (ie I'm paying for it). Zero discount on RRP.

Well my order is now in and despite having a pre order deposit paid since December, my dealer just informed me that they expect deliveries in December this year. So while to wait.

Thats what I was led to believe. Aberdeen Audi have 15 order for the RS3 and I am one of the first slots to be allocated. But got an email late yesterday saying they had been notified that they will get December deliveries. Im in no mad rush to get the car to be honest. Got my spec below though :)

If it's not a rude question, roughly how much px did you get on your S3?

My own S3 Saloon (Nov 14) with all extras, insurances and service packages, came to a smidgeon over 40K, but I have no idea what px I would get for it today (5 months later).

A bog standard RS3 lists at £39,995 but will surely be nearer 45K once your favourite extras are specified. If a trade-in is appropriate, but the RS3 isn't going to materialise until late summer, at what point does the dealer place a px value on your current car? When you place your RS3 order or when you collect it?

I tried 3 dealers and got the same answer: £27K. I have done a deal with the dealer who I had ordered the car through, in order for me to go back to them. My order is exactly £47K with delivery, tax etc. The PX price I am actually getting is on the oredr, so I'll hold them to that!

Until I have seen one in the flesh and driven one, I wouldn't order one. I'm amazed people would place an order for a car they have never seen or driven. I hope you like it, that's all I can say as thus far, I've been a little underwhelmed just by the look of it and as reviews of the car start to emerge, there does seem to be a common theme that this is not quite the usual RS package. I've owned an RS4 and I have my suspicions that the new RS3 isn't going to be worth £8k more than an S3. We shall see - test drive already sorted, once local dealer gets their Nardo Grey RS3 in June ...

I can re-iterate what Tom P said :) confirmed today at Basingstoke Audi and spec = a touch over 48k. I know I know I said my ceiling was 47k but what the hell :p

And they quoted 27.5px on my order form, but I'm gonna see what WBAC offer as they beat Audi by 3k on my previous A5 at only 9 months old :)

Sweet work! I bottled it at 45.5K! December was muttered to me as a pesamistic assessment for delivery but still quoted delivery times should be hitting the Aug mark. A touch of expectation management I hope! Any timescales discussed when you ordered?

Going to be a huge leap from the current chariot.

Less than ideal! Thanks for checking, I'll give them a nudge next!

He also mentioned the RS3 disappearing from the UK configurator site but didn't know why. He suspects pricing issue possibly......

Abolishing the Dynamic pack in favour of Sports Exhaust and Mag ride as stand alone options hopefully!!!

I'll still not spec either of them :)

Mag ride, just no.

Sports exhaust, I did think this over, ALOT, but by all accounts, the standard one sounds good enough.

No RS4 or 5 on the UK configuratior either so hopefully it's not an RS3 pricing issue

they've been gone from there a while now.

If you configure an RS6 with black styling pack, it defaults you to having black mirror caps - I hope to god they're not doing this with the RS3

Black styling with black mirrors and Nardo looks excellent. What mirrors you going for?
