I know its not a BMW

But as the kids are getting older and taller, its time for the TTRS to go, so ive bitten the bullet and ordered a new Audi RS3..

The 5 cylinder engine is an absolute dream and thats one thing i dont want to lose, so come June well have this little number to run about in.

Misano Red
Light And Rain Sensors
Non-smoking Pack
Privacy Glass
Rs Bucket Seats
Aluminium Styling Pack
Black Leather With Silver Stitching Rs Bucket Seats
Bose Surround Sound
Cruise Control
Electric Folding Door Mirrors/heated

Interior Light Pack

Im also going to have to eat my own words too, but alas this was the easier option rather than removing the kids legs

I was contempating ordering one of these to replace the TTRS, as the kids are getting taller. But ive now decided to go with option 2, and have the kid's legs removed as i wouldnt swap mine for the RS3

Good choice, nice to see you have gone for the red rather than the usual grey, silver or black. The bucket seats look fantastic from the pics, just a shame you will not get the car until June. When is the car officially launched in the UK?

Insanely jealous.

Hmmm, misano red? Are there no "special" RS3 colours? I must admit to thinking Nogaro blue is a bit... over done... though

Its an RS3 not an S3.

Personally would prefer a 3 door RS3 for the looks but as they dont make them its not an option.

Great mix of performance and practicality though...

Good choice

Very nice... but did you test putting real live humans behind the bucket seats? It was impossible in the RS4 so I hope this is better!!

I quite like it but personally for me all the chrome really looks chav. I would opt for 3 door as well but I hear they are releasing the 5 door initially as they fear once the 3 door is out the 5 wont sell?

Wow, nice choice and spec!- Still like the look of the A3 Sportback (shame the standard one is so boring to drive)

Only got one minor comment - why doesn't it have the twin oval 'RS' exhausts at either side of car (looks similar to the S? (...as i said minor comment, lol)
