Looking forward to your review and thoughts about the RS3. I’ve been driving an Audi A6 for a little over ten years and it’s been a solid car. In the future I’d like to check out the S and RS lineup! Congrats Terry!

Congrats! I drove an RS3 last year to compare against the BMW M2 - both great cars for different reasons...the launch control in the RS3 is a hoot!

Congratulations on an awesome car. While it's a little less of a beast than your Hellcat, I bet it's more fun!

I am sure that you will enjoy the car. I currently drive an A7 and I really enjoy the combination of German engineering, styling, sota technology and reliability. Audi offers the 4-year maintenance package that is worth it if you plan on keeping the car for 4 years. You can buy that anytime within the first year of ownership.
I saw pics of an Audi electric vehicle coming out in 2020. Looks a bit like an electric A7. I am keeping an eye open for it.
Congrats!!!

Since then it has been all Audi with my wife having a 2006 A4, then upgrading to a 2011 Q5, and I am currently driving a 2012 S4. I haven't driven an RS3, but admire the couple I have seen on the road!

Guys,


Just want to make sure I don't mislead you I Do-Not have the RS3 and from what I have now heard from the G/M at Audi Nashville.
The RS3 (2019) will not go into production until August 2019 and proposed delivery dates of September-October 2019.
I'm also going to add this ..........
If in-fact I don't get the call it's built until August and would not actually take delivery until September-October ???
The wife and I have discussed it and we are both thinking I'm going to let Audi Dealership sale it.
I'll place a new order for a 2020 RS3 as it makes no sense to me to take delivery of a new car in the 4th quarter of the year.
When more than likely the Magazines will already be talking about the 2020 RS3 and what's being changed, added, enhanced etc.


So, if I start reading in the Magazines months and months before this 2019 RS3 is even built and meanwhile I also find out when you can place your order for the 2020 RS3 ???
That's probably what I'll do as this car to us is a pretty expensive ride and to get it and already reading about it's replacement a few months later does not make sense.
Heck, if I'm going to have to wait that long ??????????
Why not simply wait awhile longer and get the next Model year .......


Well plenty of time to think about things so we shall see what Audi actually ends up doing on production & delivery dates.


Also since my wife works at home and I am retired there is no real rush on this.
We have a new VW Golf R sitting in the garage that has a whopping 8K miles on it.
In-fact I just took it in a few days ago to have the 10K or 1-year service done.
Don't even drive it enough to put the 10K miles on it for service in a year.





Terry

Some manufacturers allow dealers to start taking orders for the next year model in the summer. I agree with you about waiting a few months. But be aware that some special models are not always built every year. Not sure if that is the case for the RS3.

I'm not sure really when Audi will open the order bank for the 2020 RS3 ???
But, I will know that answer long-long-long before the ordered now 2019 RS3 is built much less called for taking delivery.
If ?????????????
I do get the information from my guy this Summer on the 2020 more than likely I'll switch my order to it.
My wife is not in anyway into cars.
But, even she said just wait and see what Robert (G/M at Audi) has to say as time goes by.
