Same power as the last one, slower than A45s ;)

You gotta remember the 45 comes shod with Michelin tyres though too ... you'll never get those factory fit on an Audi ;)
All helps with that 0 to 62 mph sprint
Did your wife's 35 come with Michelin pilot sport 4s fitted as standard too ?
Merc certainly didn't penny pinch with the AMG cars :icon thumright:

Nothing wrong with P Zeros either. Way better than Hankooks!!

You still in your M5 Comp John?

Yeah good tyres - But VERY soft compound :)

my RS3 ate through the fronts every 6-7,000 miles !

great summer grip though

I keep trawling the net every other day looking for more spy shots or intel on the new RS3, everything I have so far was posted in the other thread, it’s been a bit quiet for a while. I was hoping for end of 2020 release but as time goes on and you Northern Hemisphere peeps enter winter/ Covid 2.0, that’s looking less likely. So I’m not likely to see one down here in Oz until 2022 I assume. They have only just relaunched the current gen RS3 after being removed from sale last year due to WLTP issues.

I do like the look myself of the A45 and have considered it, just waiting to see if the new RS3 is convincing enough

However, carwow doesn't help.. MW is impressed... yet simultaneously unimpressed with his new DD, from what I can gather

How much do we think the new RS3 saloon will cost?

I’m going max 65k with all the toys and 444bhp if that happens
Be daft though as a rs4 starts at £65k
Or a 50-52k basic pauper spec 415bhp
To 60k with some toys
Either way I’m in it for 58-62 k one depending on it’s looks and looks £20 k better than an s3
Or I’m off to MB
Not

I think pricing will be similar to current model. Perhaps 10% more. There should be a vorsprung option also. I don’t see it being more than 60k fully loaded. Pricing will be along the same lines as the RSQ3 but 2k less across each version is my guess.

3.65 sec to 60 mph on cold tyres & wet road is very impressive.

the cars are very engaging to drive and handling is superb.

it is just the exhaust note which lets it down.

Seats, cabin, dash, tech, looks etc all superb.


If the new RS3 has better suspension than the old car & retains a degree of the 5 cylinder engine note I will consider another in a few years though.

Yep i have a CLA45S PLUS AMG on order reduced from £58k to £53k with expected delivery April 2021. For the tech, handling, performance and practicality on offer theres nothing that competes!. I'm not sure i would pay an extra £5k for the Audi RS3 Saloon when there will be almost nothing between them

Went and had a nosey in Audi Solihull
See if they had an s3 for viewing
Nope
But at least I finally got to sit inside an a3 sline
Love the dash layout even the vents
Not so much with the amount of cheap plastic though especially the door cards
Felt ok to sit in
Not much to shout about, my sline A4 felt more premium as I guess it should do
Think I may go rs6

That interior


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Yeah it wasn’t the best upon reflection
Need to see an S3 to see how much difference there is May give me a feel on how the Rs3 may turn out
I’d be a bit disappointed if it was still cheap feeling from an Sline
Maybe the vorsprung May give a better vision

Barring the bigger virtual cockpit I can’t see how much different the RS will be.
