Way too much cheap plastic/fake vents for a $70k car imo. The rear and looks like a Kia Forte. Not that the Kia looks bad at all, but I expect something original in this price range. Not feeling the interior that much either, especially the gear selector. Iím really disappointed in the car this year. Too bad because the RS3 is like a mini dream car of mine. Hard to imagine Iím having such a difficult time finding a suitable replacement for my15 wrx Iíve had for 8 years now. The rs3 is the only car I was willing to give up a manual transmission for.

Right!? My problem is the only Audi Iíve ever driven is an old A3 hatch.
Then I hear/read how the awd system is actually a ****ty front wheel drive system or how the interior is crappy. I wish there was one at my local dealer so I can actually sit in one.

There's a setting where you can lock 50% of the power to the rear wheels and then you can also send 100% of that 50% to one wheel which of course steps the rear out in a turn(dorifto mode).

I dunno though, the blue is pretty sexy. Seems like a helluva lot of car for the money.

Not sure if that giant, black plastic grille will ever grow on me. Looking at the still shot of the video above makes me cringe a bit. Generally Audi has done well making inofensive looking vehicles but they may have gone too far on this one. Good thing the grille is black and not shiny silver otherwise it would look like a rolling cheese grater coming towards you.

I just might paint the grill silver and get a custom plate ďcheezg8rĒ

Looks wise, I think the prior gen (8v) looks way better. What's up with that plasticky grill thing on the rear? Yuck..

Wondering the tunability of the newer gen compared to the older DAZA ones as well.

Props for that magna rear diff though.

I have an order placed, but who knows if I will actually get an allocation.

I donít find the grill as offensive as BMW. Silver Audi rings break up the sea of black on the grill.

related/unrelated - have you seen the price of "used" IS500's? ~80k with a couple thousand miles on them; ~20k bump because there aren't that many around. I won't pay it, but I'm sure someone will, especially for the launch edition.
