I am seriously going to put a deposit down over the next 2 weeks for the RS3. What a car.

Someone estimate the 0-60 , surely it would be sub 5 seconds. ECLIPSe.gifgrin.gif

4.6 seconds I reckon and about 11 seconds to 100mph - providing they can keep it under 1500kg!

Less is more!

I agree.. somewhere around 4.5 to 4.7 seconds...

Audi's aren't the lighest cars with quattro but even so it will be quick.. and tuneable grin.gif

What sort of timescale are we looking at for the RS3? And how much of a deposit would be needed at a UK dealer?

Will probably chop the M3 in for one of these

Early reports did say summer 2005 for the RS3. I reckon a £250 deposit would hold 1 at a uk dealer. I am starting enquiries tomorrow cool.gif

Guys, you really know how to make my day!

...punk! hehe (Dirty Harry)

Huh, my S3 will by then be 4 years old (exactly the right time to change the car) and .....

It will be interesting though if the Porsche rumors are true.

Here's a pic, but who knows if that's true:

is the rs3 going to use the 3.2 with a twin or the 4.2 from the rs6. i still recon the 515bhp projektzwo golf r32 will be way better with top speeds of over 300km/h. beat that audi fekr.gif

Just spoke to the top bloke for the Derby and Sheffield dealers (does all the ordering etc), he has taken my details and said that he`s building up a list and more nearer the time will ring everyone on the list to see if they are still intrested or not? so he didnt ask for a deposit??? confused.gif

I think the RS3 will be based on the 3.2 V6 with 350bhp and between 400 - 500Nm, 0-62 should be under the 5second mark with a limited topspeed of 155mph smile.gif

Lets hope the price doesnt go to far over £30,000 otherwise it`ll be hard to buy for me frown.gif

New S3 should be around £25 so 5k more for the RS3 seems ok then add 5k of options, total 35k!

Might just do it! dunno about insurance or running costs, lol jump.gif

Riz, don't be dissapointed if the S3 does top £30,000. The standard TT with 3.2 V6 is £30,000 already so the RS3 has got to be at least £33,000 because you are getting loads more gear and power for the money!

And for those idiots who say 'I'm not paying over £30,000 for a fancy hot hatch!' - your loss. tongue.gif

I would think that the new S3 will be less than the TT, just a trend which accured with the current TT 225 and S3! ermmmmm im hoping for a price tag of no more than £35,000 with a release date in 2006. dont mind paying 35k for the RS3 and i would think that it`ll be fully loaded like the RS6, Satnav+ with Tv as standard etc jump.gif
