I would like to know the same,

I have been told my order has been 'accepted' with the Factory, what does that mean and what will/should happen next?

we are in the same boat, waiting to be assigned a build date with the factory, there's loads of Audi dealers so depending on how far down the queue we are could be some time until we hear back from them, I don't understand why they didn't pre build the cars as they would have known people would be interested!

Dealer told me Launch cars will be built week 36, which is this week and around 2-4 weeks after that they should have them in the dealers, because we are 'buying blind' with nothing to see or drive prior to purchase if I dont like the test drive in the launch (demo) car I can get my deposit back

Presume these will be the launch edition cars…?
These must be European models LHD and no Pano roof.
Audi uK press release
“Stepping up to the RS 3 Carbon Black (+£4,650) brings darkened Matrix LED headlamps, five-spoke 19-inch matt black alloy wheels, a gloss black front spoiler as well as a carbon fibre finish to the exterior mirror housings, rear spoiler, side skirts and engine cover.
Above that sits the RS 3 Launch Edition (+£6,000), of which only 96 examples have been allocated to the UK. The Specification brings a wealth of additional standard kit such as the Driver Assistance pack, Adaptive suspension with Drive Select and Audi’s Comfort & Sound pack. A glass panoramic roof, heads up display, electric front seats, phonebox lite, sports exhaust, red brake callipers and a gloss black finish to various interior and exterior elements also appear. The top speed also increases to 174mph.”

I didn’t spot the lack of pano (paintwork was too bright ) but I should have known better - I’ve got a launch edition coming too!

This is what I came on to post. Seen this today and good to see the sportback in green. This is what I’ve ordered but hard to tell if the red suited it better

Kyalami Green doesn't look like the one in the photo in real life. Photo looks really washed out and faded, it's a really vibrant colour irl. I went to Stirling Audi to view their RSQ3 in Kyalami and I calibrated these pics I took to resemble exactly how my eyes pick it up.

Does seem to be the start of the launch editions/press cars rolling off the line though.

I wonder what tyres the rs3 will come with?

We know tyre sizes of course but what brand / model will they be…. ?

I’ve got Michelin’s ps4s on my bbs but I’m guessing it won’t be them!!

Anyone else noticed you can build a spec on one at the moment or is it just me? Although my laptop and phones not working. Won’t allow me to click on carbon or vorsprung and if you try continue it says no car selected

Fun/interesting fact: Comparethemarket have the new RS3 listed in their car insurance quote vehicle list.

I’ve not looked at insurance yet but did start thinking about that and the likely difficulties of a brand new car like the 8Y… hopefully it won’t be too painful.

Must mean updates taking place, one can only pray what colour thread is getting slipped in there :yes:
Heres one - footrest previously described as being stainless steel now being advertised as black plastic despite photo being unchanged

Check the configurator now, you can spec a Saloon Carbon in black (or even exclusive) colours now, both options remove the contrast roof.




I hope this post post didn't trigger anyone to cry off to mommy to come slap my wrist?
