RS3: Have you ordered one? Have you received a build date?

592 posts in this topic

....I had heard rumours from pretty relaible sources that the new RS3 would come along early in the cycle of the new A3 platform, pretty much as happended with the A5.

News today on What car website, that may actually be the case with the new RS3 appearing spring 2014.

Highly unlikely! The press will always photoshop future hot models days after official pics of the base models become available. The S3 will probably not even arrive before spring 2014. The last S3 took over three years to arrive (May 2003 - August 2006)

Apparently the RS3 replacement is going to be here in 2014 so anyone still waiting for the old model surely would wait for the new one and get an upgraded model probably with a better chassis and more power. :confused:

Buy an M135i. Save ten grand, go faster, enjoy it more, receive it before 2018.:grin:

I cant stand the looks of the Series 1, otherwie I would actually give it consideration, had a good test drive in a 1M which was pretty nice to be fair, but not enough room and I really want need 4WD at the end of the day, might consider passing on the the RS3 8P and going for the new S3 which looks pretty good with a reasonable helping of power increase over the previous model to boot

Protracted events

Polariod v Kodak

Samsung v Apple

Ashleywater v Audi

I know (some) woman that could choose shoes, coat and a handbag quicker than you and your car.

Go on, own up, you have two XX chromosomes, don't you? :grin:

Hey, that's the same model as the one I now see at the office every day.

Except the colour. It has yellow wheels, yellow "XX"'s and the panels are a dark purple. Doesn't look anything like as nice as that. That looks lovely.+++

Is the new S3 still a 4-pot?

Yes, it's a new variant of the EA888 engine delivering 300PS

That's a respectable figure for the 2.0l TFSI engine!

It is that and I believe it's relatively economical too +++
