    How would you guys compare the performance of the RS3 to other Audi models, in terms of acceleration and handling? Not really comparable to the R8, but I'd be interested to learn how the RS3 measures up against the other Audi models. For reference, I owned a '15 S4 that was Stage II Engine/DSG, with after market intakes, resonated downpipes, and AWE Touring exhaust. It could move.

    I came from a B8.5 S4 also. This car drives completely differently. I picked mine up in November and didn't have much of a chance to push it through twisties, but it is definitely lighter and more responsive feeling. The torque curve is also much more noticeable than the linear curve of the S4. Definitely faster than a stock S4, probably more comparable to a single pulley stage 2 S4 running pump. In for others opinions also though.

    Kind of what I thought. The Stage II tune I had, along with aftermarket intakes, downpipes, and exhaust, really woke the S4 up. But it was such a hassle with the cat and mouse game of hiding the tune from Audi. I know you, "Gotta pay to play", but in addition to the expense of tuning to stock and then back to the tune, it is a hassle because my closest tuner is not in the area I live. So while the RS3 is probably at least the performance equal to S4's similarly modded like mine, you'd have to go with a tune to best that. And then it's here we go again. I once looked at an RS7 and that certainly has really great performance stock, but I just don't like the look at all. That just leaves the V10 R8, but that's out of my price range (and very little cargo space).

    I (still) have a B8.5 S4, stage 1, 6MT, intake and AWE touring exhaust, and an RS3. The RS3 is probably (butt dyno test only) quicker, and is certainly more nimble, but I do like the linear curve of a supercharged engine better than that of the RS3.

    2018 Ara Blue, stuck at port. The wait is killing me.

    On a separate note, anyone have thoughts on the Ara Blue with red stitching? I took over this from someone else's order that backed out but now I'm second guessing my decision. I'm worried it's going to look really funky/too busy.

    It's not uncommon, if it has the dynamic pack the red calipers will help tie it all together. Here's a video of one;

    I think it would look good. Breaks up the cabin color a bit.

    I was impressed when it was pitted against an R8

    not a good reference video as for some reason, that RS3 does not have the red vents. though it does look better like that. i turned down one because of all the red but that one is more subtle, not bad. after all this waiting i'll take any goddamn color stitching lol.

    You can order just the red stitching in the seats for no additional charge. The RS Design Package ($1000) adds the red vents, alcantara knee pads, arm rests, and other bits like the RS floor mats...

    didn't see that option but anyway its too late now lol, and the one in the video had everything red minus the vents. Also if my SA calls me that he got an extra RS3 in stock in nardo with red stitching then I'll cancel my current order since mine is still 3-4 months away.

    Other markets the red stitching and red vents are separate things, that car is in the UK. In Canada you can get red stitching but the red vents are not an option at all.

    I always thought this one was interesting, it has a body colored front blade option, alu-optics for the grille, mirrors and window frames, and black optics for the rear diffuser. I believe this is in The Netherlands

    How long did that take after you spec'd the car out and paid the small up front payment?

    Will depend on the dealer, larger Audi Sport dealers will be faster. Mine took a month.

    Sounds like from initial order to allocation of the specific unit for production.

    I put my deposit down Nov 5, got allocation Dec 1, car is slated to be built first week of Feb, delivery last week of April to first week of May. I think most of the US is a little faster (especially east coast) because for here they ship to Halifax and then it has to come across the whole country on a train .

    Maybe the timeframe I was given is a bit optimistic then. If youíre correct, then mine might not arrive until at least June.

    Question regarding the vents in the backseat, are they in sync with driver side or passenger side of the dual-zone climate control?

    Most likely fed by both sides combining the two. My GTI is like that anyway.

    Just wanted to say I will be joining the RS club. Just put my deposit down for 2018 Audi Exclusive Nogaro Blue RS3. Now does anyone know how or where I go to get updates on the progress of the build? The dealer wasnt sure. These next few months are going to be painful but can't wait!

    You probably won't have your car till June or July. Which possibly will put it as a 2019 build. The dealer can sign you up for customer in waiting emails. You'll get an email only on major milestones. Normal build time is 4-5 months assuming the dealer has an allocation. Exclusive adds another 2-3 months.

    Well hopefully it won't take that long but either way it's gunna feel like eternity.

    So is there anyone out there that has gotten an audi exclusive color that can comment on their build time?

    There was a member with a viper green but he hasnít been around much since he got it, probably driving the wheels off it. I think his ended up being close to nine months though if I remember correctly.

    when do they start becoming 2019 builds? the one i'm ordering next week is not an exclusive color, and the dealer told me 5-6 months for delivery.

    They typically switch over about June/July.

    Interesting, so with the lead times dealers are quoting now, wouldn't that mean production would have to switch over the the 2019 model soon? I can't find any information on the specs/changes for the 2019 rs3 sedan on the internet.

    Ok so has anyone had their sales associate quit Audi while your waiting for your order? I knew this was not going to be a smooth transaction. At this point i feel like giving up and just buying a TTS. Now i guess i gotta go to the dealer and talk to the manager sort shit out.

    Production switches in summer, ordering will start in spring. Youíll know for sure when they get an allocation, they will let you know if it will be a 2019 model. You wonít know if there is any changes until he dealers get the order guides typically in the spring, but I wouldnít expect anything major other than a $500 or so MSRP bump

    Yes - Happened to me for my previous Audi. Go talk to the manager. Your car is ordered and will show up to the dealer it is ordered from regardless of SA. You will just deal with someone else when it comes in.

    Hi all, first time poster here and prospective RS3 buyer! I wanted to get an opinion on this offer:

    New 2018 RS3, Nardo Grey, tech package, dynamic package, black optic package, RS carbon inlays, USB cables: $62,535 asking price.

    After haggling: 6% off MSRP. $62,535 - $3,700 "discount" = $58,835.
    Then there are the following fees in addition to the discount: + $500 "tint" + $600 dealer service charge + $625 "out of state fees." Does this sound like a good deal? Tints I understand are typically a way for the dealer to increase its profit margin. Dealer service charge is non-negotiable at Audi dealers in my experience. What about the out of state fees component?

    Any input is welcome. Thanks!
