    There are only 2 downsides. The RS3 does not look special. It looks like an A3 with S-Line. No wow effect.
    And it’s still front heavy. A Quattro with 70% to the back and this thing would be insane.

    Problem with the aftermarket exhaust is that if you get this car on finance which 90% of people will it’s against the agreement to make any changes until all payments are finished so u wouldn’t be able to do it for a long time into the owner ship

    • golfmaniac007
      golfmaniac007 13 days ago

      @djaveitlarge i never said the Civic type R is in the same league. i said its Audi's version of the Civic type R. for Audi's luxury standards, the interior of the A3 is pretty cheap looking. very basic. just that in the RS3 you get the juicy engine.

    • djaveitlarge
      djaveitlarge 13 days ago

      @golfmaniac007 civic type R isn't even in the same league as the S3 audi seriously dude..... and i looked at PCP on the civic and RS3 and the differance was extra£1000 on initial and £50 per month more for RS3 and that is with £8k's of extras you'd have to be a clinical moron to PCP the civic !!

    • golfmaniac007
      golfmaniac007 24 days ago

      who would spend that kind of money on audi's version of honda civic type R. sure the engine sounds nice and its a rocket but it still a german version of a civic. the interior feels like a civic.

    I think its a better refined car than the previous one wrt to the "pops and bangs". I think they're childish.

  • Alex Bleicker
    Alex Bleicker Month ago

    Not sure about the RS3 anymore since the engine noise has been downgraded and costing £45k with that entertainment system feels like not really in line with the competition. I'm waiting for the new CLA45 and the new M3 that will be 4 wheel drive. Having checked out a A35, you can see Mercedes has upped their game with the interior. BMW M3 may be starting around £60k when it comes out but considering the sports package on the RS3 takes it to £50k, the BMW may be more interesting and have more engine tuning potential as well.

      @hlf_coder hold out for the rs3 man might be a six month wait though, my missus just ordered a ttrs in Jan due sometime in June
      Also depends on whether you prefer the rwd characteristics of m2 or raw brutal awd power of the audis. But coming from the s3 you'll love it.
      Second hand or nearly new rs3s going for a quite a bit cheaper (up to 3k on mileage) and are available too. Got mine used but almost 10k cheaper than brand new (considering extras and specs included) with 3k on the clock. Too worried about general depreciation off shown room floor. Good luck with you choice nonetheless 👍

    • hlf_coder
      hlf_coder Month ago +1

      Nice, congrats man. I've got an S3 right now, and it's time to get something new, so I'm trying to decide between the RS3 and an M2. Do you mind if I ask how long it will take between your order and the actual delivery? Is it a month? Two? Three? Regardless of whether I go with the M2 or RS3 it looks like I'll have to order it, and the wait time is one of the main things I'm curious about. (I emailed my Audi sales rep a few weeks ago with some questions, but he wasn't very specific with that particular answer)
      Enjoy the new ride! I can't even imagine my current car with 100 more HP. I think you're gonna have some fun

    Audi's 5 pot RS cars are unique. The sound and performance combination is awesome, and something we'll all miss in around 10 years time if a certain group of people get their own way. I'm a very happy owner of an RSQ3 (340bhp), would love an RS3, but being an old git with a bad back, I "settled" for the Q3. 0 - 62 in 4.8 seconds, 36 mpg on a run is possible.....and it's rare, less than 1k ever registered in the UK (including the earlier 310 bhp model). Like all the 5 pot RSs, great daily drivers....but a bit bonkers when you feel the need.....especially in a small SUV!

      @Jamie I completely agree, I honestly think it sounds better than the stock RS 7. I know I will get a lot of hate for that comment. A custom exhaust and tune might fix that filter!

    • Jamie
      Jamie 18 days ago

      @A R i have no idea but im not liking this OPF filter they have put in the exhaust from 2019> due to new emissions laws. It really muffles the sound. Still sounds better than the rs4 or rs5 though.

      Frazza001 Month ago +1

      @mohammad ali Thanks for the info and yes i'm fully aware which is exactly my point, if you have spent any time in the NEW RS3 seats you will know that they are aimed more at comfort and less on performance and also the exact same seat in the S3, for a RS model this is a shame. Audi have gone away from the traditional wingback that they used to use on there RS models which were a lot more supportive. I drive a lot of these cars , have and own performances hot hatches which is why i know they should have used a more performance orientated seat for the RS3 or at the very least have it as an option.

I have and do own quite few hot hatches and performance cars
