    Facelift sportback revealed

    Shame really now that the pricing has been revealed. Was seriously considering saloon. but now the Competion Pack M3 seems a better prospect given the discounts available. I'm not so sure i'd be even remotely consider in spending £45K+ on a Hatch, regardless of 400 hp or not. ps - can't...

    Used RS3 already for sale...

    Still doesn't look special enough to warrant the additional premium! Once you add some basic options your still on the other side of 42k

    Used RS3 already for sale...

    I'd rather have an S3 then pay that kind of money for one of those! It needs to look like a 50K car which it clearly doesnt!

    Oh S3 - had i ordered an RS3 in 3dr form and perhaps a 6 speed manual i would have held out and waited. Now having seen that car above for sale, i'm glad i made the change. Thats looks like a box-standard sportback. I'd however take that engine note any day of the week! ;-) Its been debated...

    +1 The 1M certainly has presence. I don't drive the car everyday, but those who take the time to look see more then a standard 1 coupe and yes, it does get attention. For me, the RS3 will not turn enough heads and if your paying that kind of money (and buying a limited edition car) you want...

    RS3 Discussion Thread

    Hi Guys, Thought i'd revist the thread to see whats going on in the world of the RS3. As posted previously, i had an RS3 on order and then cancelled due no delivery updates and also the fact that the looks of the RS3 after great consideration didnt really represent what i would have expected...

    Khufu - i thought the same until i saw it in the flesh. I ended up seeing a customers car at BMW in Valencia Orange and it looked the business. Its a butch looking car, or more a 1 series coupe on steroids! IMPO the RS3 could have done with some steroids. It doesn't really represent RS...

    No probs ~RS~! The only thing for me is i've seen the 1M in the flesh and have to say it does look the part. Whether the Audi will look any better in real life is something we'll have to wait and see. Granted tho, 3.8s is hard to ignore! Few cars can touch that! I would have expected the...

    RS3 Delivery Times

    I scrapped my RS3 order and got my deposit back. I got myself a BMW 1M - build date already scheduled for Week 26 (June) with delivery in July! I feel for those of you holding on, it could be a long wait! If the paint story is true, then surely those who have ordered IBIS should jump straight...
