Collected this on saturday

Collected the RS3 on Saturday, so decided to give it a bath today










Originally had a racing mica rs3 on order, which still hasn't arrived. So sold my order slot an collected this on Saturday to replace the TTRS

Is it better than the TTRS, nice car but a bit more "normal" looking.

The TTRS was mapped and manual, so if I'm honest he TTRS was more involving, but he launch control is awesome

3.8 to 60 is insane, at 40 when I was young the mark of seriously quick used to be under 5, achieved by only the most exotic of supercars

I always think autocars figures are usually the most accurate.

Like the Audi TT RS, the figures being banded about seem hugely optimistic.

Still 0-60mph in 4.5secs is still very fast. 0-100mph 11.2 secs is good too. http://www.autocar.co.uk/CarReviews/...drive)/258071/

Quicker than they timed the TT RS but miles off the claimed 9.3secs by a couple of people on here.

Certainly in line with a car of it's power and weight.

I'm not sure about it. Looks too short for how much height the panels have. That might be the colour as the car looks more proportioned in red.

I'm sure it will be fun in the winter and it does make a good sound.

Good spec Andrew, very envious !!
I'm toying with the idea of returning to an Audi currently ..... Just not 100% on which one haha

Loving your RS3 though....looks great, spot on spec .... I'd have added Bluetooth and iPod tech too


I take it you have a couple of tweaks planned for it!?
