start up is very quiet mate when the car is warm.
Cold start up is much better but it only lasts a few seconds.
Nothing remotely close to the start up of the 8v ;)

I have to check now and again to make sure the 5 pot hasn’t been nicked and someone has shoved a 4 pot in there……..

It did sound marginally better with the valves unplugged and open, so a valve controller maybe on the cards.

Saw you arrive but you sped off before I could jump out my car for a chat. When you left the wife was back so I couldn't chat then either!

TX.

Edit - it got a lot of attention when people walked past.

Ah no worries, Next time! I'm sure you'll see me about if you're local.

I have noticed it's been getting a lot of attention since having it. I'm nervous to park it anywhere :laughing:

I saw my first other 8Y RS3 on the road last night - blue hatch.
Kinda annoyed me as it means mine is not the only one in my area anymore so lost some exclusivity lol
It did look good though and had great road presence.
Still getting lots of positive comments about the car - I think everyone really likes the styling of these cars.
They are certainly more aggressive and purposeful looking than the 8v.

Not noticed one near me yet but there is an 8y saloon s3 in Daytona and looks really nice actually.

I always park near it so I can seem rs/s next to each other

Yes it’s not as loud as previous rs3 but it’s still another league from a 4 pot

I assumed you were being flippant but you genuinely think it sounds the same as a 4 pot?! Can’t you tell the difference?

It’s got a totally different sound and so it’s a real shame if you can’t hear the difference - the more characterful sound was why I got an rs3 and I can clearly hear it sounds different.

Must admit if I couldnt tell the difference I would sell mine!!

Or do you mean as loud as a 4 pot? I could agree with that as it’s no louder than many 4 pots…

I’m referring to the engine noise at the front.

It’s 100% more audible now the car is so quiet so you hear it in the cabin.

Sounds awful, especially on downshifts.

if you really want to depress yourself about how the car used to sound - this is a video I watched many times when my 8v was on order:

Took mine down to a local car cafe that's just opened. Turned a few heads and many complements about the wheels.

Wheel faces coated today, not an easy task on the silver wheels! 127 flat surfaces per wheel to be decontaminated, ipa'd, coated and buffed off!

Not the best video as off my phone but 2000 miles in and it's beginning to sound more like an RS3..
