    Has any one got a copy of their Audi Vehicle Order to hand, who specced Pan Roof and Sports Exhaust and Carbon inlays on their saloon cars.
    I’m interested to know the cost inc VAT. I’m trying to calculate the saving this new Sports Pack represents.

    I have prices for the following:

    £44750 rrp

    £375 Privacy glass

    £900 Sports exhaust ???

    £1000 Sunroof ???

    £??? Carbon inlay

    £795 Sport seats

    £800 Gloss black styling pack

    £695 Wheels

    £1200 Road fund

    £55 Reg fee

    £630 delivery

    ----------------------------

    £51305 Total (Excluding: Carbon Inlays, Exhaust & Sunroof TBC)

    -£50665

    Saving £640

    The next questions might be a little contentious, do we know if Audi will levy a surcharge if we leave the EU without a transition deal?

    To FL owners, does this one look any different?

    Not sure if it's just me but looks like the front is slightly different. The Audi Sport options package also seems cheaper than individually speccing everything included

    Looks identical to me, all except for the wheels of course.

    I haven’t read the document in detail haven’t had chance yet, but is there any mention of a particulate filter in these new models?

    Does this raised section look any bigger possibly? Especially at the side?

    Sports exhaust was £1,000, sunroof £1,075 & carbon inlays £850.

    Previously a standard spec RS3 saloon cost £45,250 OTR. New pricing for standard spec means an increase of £1,415 but you now get privacy glass (was £375) and phone box (was £325) as standard.

    Taking into account the full spec of the new Audi Sport Edition priced at £50,665, before it would have cost £51,565 OTR for the same spec, so total saving is £900 or another way to look at it, free carbon fibre inlays.

    In the event of a no deal Brexit, a 10% tariff looks very likely, Porsche are already covering their backs for such outcome and won’t be long before other manufacturers follow…

    It is exactly the same - the only difference is the rotor alloys which have always been available in other countries but not the UK.

    Other than that just the inclusion of all the options in packs is a bonus for anyone who buys. My car has all of these extras anyway (except I went for the aluminium pack and standard inlays) but everything else I have.

    It seems to be a better package if you buy a new one - but it isn’t different externally.

    So they are offering the saloon alloys as a cost option on the sportback ... and the sportback alloys as a cost option on the saloon ... wtf ????

    Those ‘packages’ don’t look good value at all @ £4k

    Can’t see a difference myself but I do like the look of the FL front end to my PFL’s one.

    Supply and demand though, another 4 or 5 grand will put loads off.

    You can look at the German Configurator at Audi.de.

    It’s exactly the same. Just new packs and a wheel swap option.

    Well according to the guys that have the OPF on the MY 19 S3's it no longer farts on the up-shifts and sounds quieter than the FL S3 that did not have the particular filter.

    We will just have to see how the sound is once it is out.

    Great analogy. Who wouldn't want fee Carbon inlays.

    I’d forgotten there was a small price increase late 2017 early 2018.

    When I ordered the OTR was £44750. An increase of £1915 based on todays OTR.

    I’d imagine there will be longer regen intervals compared to a diesel but the usual issues and lifespan of the filter.

    Not to mention all of that noise lost. Perhaps more restrictive holding back an ounce of power?

    Oh wow really, no DSG farts? Now I may start arguments here but I’m coming from an S3 and I loved mine, but the DSG farts are one of the highlights from the way it sounds and without would be pretty boring.

    Do they pop and crackle as they used to or have they gotten rid like they have in the FL RS3?

    I got the carbon inlays and had the standard ones on my S3 but if I had the choice, I would have went for the Alu Race one with the lights. Carbon inlays aren't that great, I think the standard ones stand out more.

    Yep no more DSG bangs. I agree, love it from my FL S3 it makes it stand out more.

    Strangely, it still has the crackles on the overrun even with the OPF. There was a video posted on on the A3/S3 8V forum of a Golf R with the OPF. Wonder how the RS3 will sound now

    I still think the FL RS3 sounds great even without the pops and bangs. If anything it sounds a bit louder lower down the rev range.

    Have you had your resonator removed? It’s amazing in the S3!! Pops turn to bangs :D When I went back standard, could hardly hear the pops with all windows up.

    This is a sad day, deletion of the DSG fart.

    Not quite the same as an S3 or PFL RS3 on the paddles. If you leave it in sport it does occasionally when changing down into 3rd and 2nd and that’s fun.

    Only time it ever does it on the paddles is if you’re braking firmly to a stop and change into 1st, it’s like you trick it as if the gearbox disengages and it’s like blipping it at idle.

    The PFL was just insane on every level and watching videos of it now makes me realise that, but when I’m driving mine I don’t find myself wishing it let of gunshots it’s great as it is. Downshifting up to 2500rpm in an empty high street at night is loud enough already ;)

    Not yet, although have been thinking about it :)

    Yep it is, I guess we just have to get used to it in post WLTP world. Cars just wont sound the same anymore.

    Have to say mines does it on all downshifts if you time it right, also get a good pop from it on up shifts in the right torque band......more than enough for me

    Not sure but for some reason last night it would not let you build any sport version!

    Also there seem to be a whole host of options missing.
