    Default RS3 8Y Ordering and Spec

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if anyone’s placed their deposit down and if so what spec you’re considering?

    Cheers

    Waiting for ordering to open in Australia and I’ll do another exclusive build when available

    I’ve placed a deposit - aiming for a Sedan this time with a spec that includes The electric memory seats etc. Dealer expects that spec. Options etc. will be available ‘by January’.

    Same as what I’ve heard with expected delivery in April…although I think UK deliveries are now being delayed

    RS3 8Y in April 2022?? In Australia?? I'll be very surprised if it hits Australian shores in 2022.

    If they do start arriving in April, more than likely they’ll be missing tech and features

    I’ve got an F Pace SVR and RS6 order in atm, both with their own issues given the microchip shortages and component delays - which are said to run well into 2023



    Edit no issues on my SVR, it’s coming with no missing tech phew, but rs6 pushed back to my23 to get full exclusive interior approved

    I was also told by dealer RS cars are being prioritized so shouldn’t have anything missing, which is essentially what happened with my SVR amidst 360 camera and HUD removed from regular f pace range

    Fenders are the best part for me

    The interior by all reports has suffered the vag cost cutting with scratchy hard plastics on doors and centre console, solid plastic door handles etc

    8Y will be the last we see of the 5 pot

    I hope we get more colours than the UK configurator. Would love a Navarra Blue or Panther Black - let’s also hope for easy exhaust mods

    It’s the same engine and exhaust as dwna with the opf in the downpipe

    We’ve already sorted that, to get all the sound back you need a downpipe swap and tune to bypass opf sensors, or you can get half way there with a catback
