Placed an order last week for a 2018 RS3 Saloon with 9% discount. Deposit down and all approved etc. only to find that the order books closed just before the order was raised due to the impending release of the 2019 model. The dealer has found a car in the network that is almost identical spec to what I originally ordered and will honour the same discount. I have 2 choices: 1. Take the unregistered car that will be available in a couple of weeks. 2. Wait approx. 3 weeks for the order books to open for the 2019 model, delivery estimated Sep/Oct. I am assuming changes to the 2019 model are likely to be minimal?
