    Anyone tempted to order the 2022 RS3, reviews look good.

    Yes, as you say features & commentary so far sounds good. Will be interesting to see how the first full comprehensive reviews go.

    Not sure if I will at this stage, took so much time and effort to get the dwna 8v to sound and drive right, kinda cbb doing it all again for what is essentially the same car. If all the existing 8v parts fit and the ecu is just another revision file of what is in 8v, that may make decision easier

    Plus Iíll have my hands full soon opf deleting and tuning the rs6 to get that to sound right

    Going to be replicating my rs3 - Merlin on lunar silver

    I kept going back n forth over doing a green on tan build, but I keep coming back to it being the second best colour compared to merlin - rs3 will be going up for sale when rs6 arrives as I have a spec in mind I want to do an 8Y rs3 sb in that Iím just not brave enough to do on a 300k wagon

    Iíll do the lunar silver leather retrim locally if by then the kiddo doesnít convince me black is less stressful

    Hey all, been a while, hope the lockdowns aren't driving everyone insane.

    @Domino can't wait to see the RS6 in Purple :) the 2022 RS3 looks nice for sure, not sure re: interior though.

    Wanted to ask anyone here whom has turfed the OE rims for replacements - did you stick with 8.5 front and 8 back staggered? I am keen to go new rims (all black) and jump to the PS4S 245 square. Anyone got a brand/recommendation for rims or tips and things to be aware of? Thanks very much!!

    I went with 8.5” rims all round when I went the 245 square setup. No issues at all.

    Just make sure you get hub rings for our 57.1 hubs. Many third party rims are 66.6” hubs so need a ring to make them fit nice and tight on the car’s hub.

    I went cheap reps from WheelDealer as it’s cheaper to replace a wheel than repair it when curbing them. No issues with them at all, and I’ve really pushed them.

    Yep loving it. Start up / cold its pretty wastegatey and average sounding but I'm over that. There's a bit of a ticky sound from bonnet on acceleration (wastegate?) until its warm and in dynamic sports. Once its warm and in dynamic sports though - pure dream! Everyone comments when they hear it, loud with awesome burble and shotgun effects, but not stupidly so. It's pretty much GOD MODE in dynamic sport once you're up to temp, I generally deny myself sports mode until 70c to look after things.

    If I could change anything about the tune I'd prefer to have a little bit more zip on drive/comfort modes, its super economical (better than stock) but barely hits 2k RPM before upshift and hits gear 7 at pretty moderate speed, feels like no go at all, but that's much like stock anyway.

    This car is a completely different beast from stock to stage 2 with OPF removed, if anyone is having doubts on whether to make the jump, just do it... its like a new car.

    It's clear though, if you want to show someone how good it sounds you won't be turning it on from cold.
