Yeah! That will be a very nice car!

I wonder what a RS3 Saloon would be like! Now that would be a monster saloon!

If the S3 can do 0-62 in 4.8, the RS3 would be a four door beast

I reckon Audi will be seriously narked by A45 AMG - I think new RS3 might be pushing 400 bhp but probably not from a 2.0 litre however.

The old RS3 had 335 bhp - so with the S3 at 300 bhp it reminds me of the old Subaru vs Mitsubishi days almost with every new model being more and more power. I'm thinking Black Edition A45 AMG is going to be totally nuts on that basis! :shock:

What I do hope is that Audi will pull its finger out and bring out the RS model a lot sooner as normally they would wait for the face lift or with the model at the end of its life before being launched (like RS3 and current RS4). With Mercedes bringing out a AMG version of A Class so soon after launch shows it can be done..........

Totally irrelevant but I work for a bank and we have car finance arm. Bit bored today so called them to see whats what and it seems A45 AMG is VERY expensive on PCP. Horrendous GMFV of £14k :o :o S3 is £16.5k - both on 3 year deals with £5k down.

Yeah, they should release the S and RS models earlier, not near to the end of the models life. Thats what worries me as they are damn expensive and a year later it will be an old shape hence a big value drop.

I think i will stick to either a S-Tronic CoD A3 Saloon or Q3 if they become available.

Good shout. I had a Q3 for a few days and it was like a bigger, higher up A1 inside.

I just want something a bit bigger with a more comfortable ride, with four doors and five seats and low running costs.

Although a petrol this time and S-Tronic because im lazy :lol:

Sounds like with that requirement list you could make a S3 Sportback / saloon work!? Q3 does get expensive once you add essential kit which is a shame as its a lovely car.

I'm never going back from S-Tronic. Interestingly my 185 I don't think is any faster than the Corsa VXR, however tonight at a set of lights it was - all thanks to S-Tronic. That's where it's so great. 8-)

I imagine the RS3 saloon would have the TTRS engine (2.5 litre 5 cylinder). Would be pretty cool.

Also thought the A3 saloon would look could as a coupe...like a small A5! 8-)
