Snap :p is it a confirmed build week or unconfirmed?

That is what it is showing on the Dealer's system both original build week & current build week.
I would say it is still a date subject to change, but hopefully it will keep to that timeline.

Yeah if that ends up being accurate I will be pretty pleased with that and I should be good for a Nov / Dec delivery :icon thumright:
I'd be over the moon with a Nov/early Dec delivery.

I don’t believe the customer build log is available any more. Just Dealer updates only. Mine sent me a screenshot of the build status / order summary which listed the build date info.

Just been told Week 47. A bit behind the saloons but I'm happy with 47.

Can't wait!

its very encouraging news for us all.
I was prepared for a wait well into next year but thus far it appears that Audi are going to give some priority to getting some RS3's on the UK roads :icon thumright:

It is encouraging, but to be fair they should as long overdue, and whilst the numbers won’t be high (vs. A3 range) would be some much needed fanfare for the brand again

Yeah that is probably part of their mind set.
I know there has been a lot of talk over limited spec 'choices' etc but there really are a lot of positives too.
This is the first time we have ever had a carbon or vorsprung RS3 and both come with a really comprehensive spec as standard.
I'm really excited to see my carbon saloon and even though those seats don't have red stitching, they are gonna look fantastic in that honeycomb pattern.
Plus groovy new alloys (done away with the rotors at last ha ha), the vented front side panels & those insanely cool lights.
I think everyone is going to be really chuffed with their new RS3's.
The possibility we may get them this year is a great bonus on top.

Audi are doing it wrong, Vorsprungs should be built first! :sign unfair::tearsofjoy:
Agree, Vorsprung should be first, but then again, Launch edition should iron out early life build snags as its almost 95% of Vorsprung.

Side vents remind me of the old Escort Cosworth.

Really like the new alloys also. Great to see the rotors finally gone!
Even older MK2 Escort Zakspeed models (mid-70s) , they were well OTT. (love it)

I should have asked where I was in the queue I put a pre deposit down a couple of months ago
I think pre-deposit should have helped.

Your wearing 8Y RS3 rose tinted glasses on atm You call piano black plastic,touchscreen,inferior internal plastics,muted engine/exhaust sound,£6k price increase progress...its you/potential buyers thinking it is and accepting crumbs on the options list and what stuck on screen?
You haven't even been in a 8Y RS3
I looked at a white S3 saloon today and l am still not convinced by its overall design it looks ungainly from some angles 3/4 view/side on frontal/rear on yeah it looks more aggressive than a 8V but the 8v fl overall is a better looking car always will especially the Saloon
I'll accept the 8y sportback is a good looking car
True, i prefer my 8v but im warming to the 8y.

However, if you get the vorsprung then its similar to my very high spec 8v and about the same price, £57K

Nooo. S3 is departing to make way for the RS3.
Thats one seriously brave colour. Initially when i saw it, i hated it, but im warming to it. I think it would be better if it was very slightly darker.

I think it's one you have to see in person. It seems everyone's pictures seem to depict a different tone/colour of it. Caught the front end of one and it's much richer/darker than most pics suggest but not quite as rich as the car in my avatar. Going to view an RSQ3 today properly in Kyalami so will let you know what I think. If you look at my signature vs my avatar, they are two different colours.

The 'Kyalami Green' writing in my signature is the ACTUAL colour code of the paint for reference purposes.

golf r best all round car - surely your r8 was far better, though granted its wide size and lack of practicality can be an issue

Ffs mate you just say the opposite to everyone else.
Hate white - oh it looks ok on a hatch with black bit’s
Hate hatches will never have another
The 8y sportback looks better than the saloon.
Sorry I’m not having it.
You’re lining up for a Golf R in white it’s clear as day pmsl !
White & hatch hater Jassy is getting a car he might end up hating more than his turbo blue TTS .... lol :tearsofjoy:
Jassyo06 is clearly 15 and cant drive, let alone afford a car.

I have build week 43 and was one of the first orders in the UK apparently. No mention of hand over though - not sure how they can quote that.
Ditto, I'm week 43 too, ordered two days before launch but have now added the sports exhaust to the spec since it became a standalone option.

Popped back to Stirling Audi. Got spoiled by two Kyalami's. Now I've seen it properly with my own eyes, I took these pics and they are exactly 100% how it looks in person. (To my eyes anyway).

you got your order in yet ?
Another week rolled on by ;)
Afraid not snake spoke with the sales guy yesterday as he asked me to come in and seal the deal but my stance is i'am not buying one until his boss gives me a better deal than the £1000 off he as offered due to all the messing about I've had with a squeaky ss seat in the S3 .
His reply was leave it with me while I work on my manager and I'll get back to you next week .
I've bought my last two cars through him so he knows I always play hard ball :smiley:

He also told me he went in an 8y Rs3 last week said it was LHD on German plates and was at west London Audi how true that is who knows .
He did say it is a lot more impressive in person compared to the video/photo's .
