RS3 Build Tracker Spreadsheet

Got a Merc A45s, I would lose 17ish thousand pounds if i keep the RS3. Will stay with the A45s, ordered a New BMW M4 xdrive for the same price im selling the RS3 for, no brainer.
Hi mate, When you say lose what do you mean? Residuals are looking ok on them so far . . .

Mate has an M4 xDrive - very nice car - get a VERY keen deal though as I've had some nightmares with BMW's depreciating before but I guess on PCP with GMFV thats irrelevant!

Only paid just over 50k for the RS3, selling it for 67ish , paid 68k for a new M4 xdrive

Not too sure I'd prefer an M4 to the RS3
Had the previous F80 M3 and swapped it for the 8v RS3
Would take the RS3 every day of the week
Plus the new M4 has one of the most hideous front ends out there at the moment.

The front of the M3/4 does split opinion but it's interior is way nicer actually most cars over £50k have better interiors than the 8Y so difficult to overlook....I'll wait and maybe Audi will add the design packs over the next 2 years and sort out that centre console area
 
I mean barring the front grille which is a bit of an opinion divider - BMWs interiors for the 2/3/4 are spot on for the price segment they’re in.

Also that engine with xDrive is another level compared to an RS3.

With that being said I’ve heard even in comfort the ride is firm and BMWs really don’t hold their value well so I wouldn’t get one unless PCP/Lease so I’m not sure which way I’d go if given the choice (it would be M3 though for the rear seats to be useable though).

I’d probably just save a big wad of cash and get an M340i which my mate has and says is brilliant.

Think he means another 2 weeks added to BW18 date previously given. Which isn’t good as he’s been pushed back several times!
Hi! another one from Spain! I purchased a RS3 Sportback in kyalami green on September 2021. At first dealer told me it might be built in february 2022, but in december the build week was the 12th. One month ago the build week was updated to week 14th, and yesterday they delayed it one more month... week 18th. :crushed:
I'm a little bit desperate but... the wait will be worth haha. (I hope so)
RS3 Sportback kyalami green. Dynamic Package with red calipers, RS red extended interior package.

Exactly… purchased it on September and with BW since December they had delayed it several times…

Update… I’ve just been called up by the company I brought from and they’ve said that Audi has ****** up on the order. On the order sheet it was Vorsprung but the cars just arrived and it’s a Carbon Edition FFS

My build week has now been updated from week 28 to week 26, still feel build week numbers and allocation are a complete lottery, as a car with exactly same spec and colour as mine with an order date 7 weeks after mine, has been delivered 18 weeks before my proposed delivery? Great for them but go figure Audi!!!???

There are obviously plenty of bad things going on in the world, but its like a random excuse generator. If there was something resembling logic to how the cars were built it would help a little with understanding the delay, but cars do seem to come through in a random order.

Tbh I don’t think I’m gonna take delivery of it. I’ve been told to take delivery of it and then order a Vorsprung then swap over. That way I get to enjoy it for 6months and not lose any money. If anyones interested in a Carbon Saloon in Black let me know.

Audi-UK are running out of excuses and unable to state the truth as to the randomness and not following their order and delivery process. Even the dealerships are being ignored or not being informed.

But the way things are going you’ll be waiting a lot longer than 6 months, unless you can pick up another cancelled order.

mid they could guarantee it and it was a 0 loss for you I’d consider it.

White is the best colour.

I'm not sure it suits white as well as say a Golf R does,
I like the RS3 in red (obviously :) ) Kyalami green (Although I chickened out on that colour) Turbo Blue has grown on me and looks stunning, Daytona is safe and looks ok, Black I swore I would never own again as too high maintenance, and that leaves white and Kemora grey, having painted more cars than I care to remember they virtually all start the process in grey primer, so for me ANY of the near grey primer colours are a NO

Just catching up on the comments. I went to see a 4 month old one yesterday in Manchester Audi. Launch edition Sportback in Daytona and nearly £68k!! Nice to stroke one at least. I’ll be getting an order in the system next week somehow. There is the possibility I can get an exclusive paint one that’s already in the system but won’t know until next week. If not, will order one with a generic colour and get them to amend the order when exclusive paint comes back on. Looking at the pic of the Glacier White one earlier in this thread though………….looks stunning. Will update in here when I know the SP.

The white pearlescent paint which was on the golf 7R was really nice

You can put me down as Collected now. Absolutely love it. I have always been a huge fan of white on black like both my previous Golf R's, but this just looks so much better in my opinion.

Be interesting to hear what lead time they give you when you're order goes through

Too true, it’s like a free for all, lad I spoke too showed me uk order spread sheet, it’s not for good reading, it was live as well and as of an hour or so ago not one was locked in for a build week, he said it’s all went tits up for parts from Ukraine, but he said Audi are still taking orders, showed me the cars they stopped taking orders on, rs3 weren’t affected. Case of taking your deposit and not delivering the goods. I’m keeping the order open cos I got in before all price increases and a 2.5k discount but that new car is coming feeling has gone now
