Thread: RS3 8Y Ordering and Spec

    Specs as given to me by a dealer

    • alarm is removed - why?
    • I assume the default steering wheel isn't flat bottomed either, if so not a fan of that. Not sure if the RS design pack would be flat?

    Thanks for sharing! The aussie cars are well specced, not many options at all which is good! But the removal of the alarm is an interesting one!

    Spoke to my dealer - unfortunately no flat bottom wheel for Oz, apparently the auto lane keeping assistance feature only comes with the round wheel! When the design package plus is optioned, it just adds alcantara and contrast stitching to the steering wheel! Pity.....because RS cars traditionally always have flat-bottomed steering wheels!

    Not so sure about the front bumper being blacked out so much, even with the Matte Aluminium option, it still is quite dark as manhattan grey (is really one or 2 shades lighter than black!). May need to get that painted up in body colour if it doesnt look good!

    Hmmm that isn't good news on the steering wheel, I love the flat bottom version. I knew it was gone on the RSQ3 but had hoped it was just a temporary COVID supply thing.

    I have also been told that there is no more Audi Corporate program so no more free servicing and discounts on dealer delivery, not sure if anyone else has heard that or has any insights into what that means for those of us that did receive this previously (other than more expensive purchases). Will be interesting to see what happens with pricing but guessing that Audi might be moving towards the fixed price model that Mercedes will have from next year or in the current climate with supply and demand the way it is they simply don't need to discount them.

    Hey all, Iím fairly new on here. I placed my order yesterday for a black sedan with the carbon and rs design package but was disappointed to find it wonít have the flat bottom steering wheel, hopefully somewhere in the future someone will find a way of changing this will have to see what is looks when it arrives. From what I was told it will arrive around June but I did t see the bit about no alarm, might have to look into that one. Good luck everyone that orders one,looks like itís gonna be a pretty cool car

    Congrats on the order mate, well done. How did you go pricing wise (happy if you want to PM me if you don't want to share publicly). Curious to know what discounting if any is happening.

    Just under 120 on road and thatís with 5 year servicing included. I wanted the ceramic brakes but couldnít justify the $13,000 for them especially as itís going to be more a weekend cruiser for me plus it would have held up delivery for at least 3 months. Sunroof I believe will hold mine up a few weeks but I can live with that

    Congrats but WoW, that's a shedffull of money for a smaller RS3/RSQ3.
    My 2016 RSQ3 purchase with everything was a shade over $90k.
    The SQ5 I ordered with everything and due at end of this CY also had 5 years warranty and servicing and was south of $120k.
    I guess with supply and demand the way it is the buyer is no longer in a strong position.
    Now for the waiting game.

    You get a lot more car with this and quite a few things now come as standard so I get the price tag. Slightly disappointing is some options will delay delivery, eg sunroof adds a few weeks and ceramic brakes probably a few months but I one model available that if you optioned it with sunroof there was no guarantee you could actually get the car
