    Audi RS3

    I know I know, not the best car dynamically, there is an update model on the horizon etc etc. But who cares. I have other cars that are dynamically brilliant at the limit but none of them have the 5 cylinder turbo that the RS3 has! For me it's a great little car. I made a silly offer on one today and the dealer accepted it. Coming in a few weeks. Can't wait to hear that sound daily!

    Congratulations, the new one is actually quite an impressive performer. Smiley

    Re: Audi RS3

    Congrats! wink Great choice.

    I love our new S3. A great package. I am sure the RS3 is even more of a blast!

    Re: Audi RS3

    Thanks guys. I'm really looking forward to it. I tried to buy one 6 months ago when it first landed in Australia, but dealers didn't want to discount them then. I wasn't even intending to buy a car today but the Audi dealer called me and I asked him what he has coming soon and 20 mins later we had agreed on a deal. 

    Bluelines, looks like Volvo didn't win our hearts enough with the Polestar. RC will be pleased.

    Smiley I even convinced bluelines to get an Audi... Smiley

    Seriously, guys...I think that the S3 and RS3 are very nice products. Not a fan of the Mercedes counterparts and while BMW has nice competitors, I do not like their interiors. At all. Time for an upgrade (BMW).

    We also have a LCI M135i so will be interesting to do a comparison when I get this car.

    Many congrats on the RS3, quite nice car in deed. We just received our "family"-RSQ3 Performance, beautiful car and I really, really love the five-cylinder. Smiley

    BTW, I just arranged a test-drive with a LCI M135i for the next weekend. Smiley

    Perhaps we can share our experiences. Smiley

    Nope. As much as I like the Polestar, the gearbox and the Volvo brand killed it. Too many Volvos in the family already. Smiley

    Congrats, great "little" car and the sound is certainly best in class kiss


    Re: Audi RS3

    M135i/M235i will get an engine update in 2 month. They will be called M140i/M240i.

    When someone is interested in a 35 wait a little bit, not buy a new one now.
    It's a completely new engine! Improved in all ways.

    The engine swap has already been announced, the B58 will be available from July onwards.

    So will this be the final version of the 1series with six cylinders? Smiley

    A totally new model is already on its way, with FWD and no six cylinder anymore. Smiley

    Re: Audi RS3

    I drove our LCI M135i tonight in the wet. I think 240kw/450nm is more than sufficient in a little car like this! I know that the car already struggles to put power down so really 250kw/500nm is unnecessary.

    Of course it is! It's just for current customers, who have yet not decided. So if you're planning to buy the most potent 1series, better wait for the new engine.
