Nice upgrade! How's the interior size compared to the F30? Does it feel smaller or is it negligible? I haven't sat in one yet, obviously, but I'm so far impressed with it.

It's a lot smaller on the inside especially for the rear passengers. No manual.

Damn, RS3? Not sure if I can handle the smaller size but that should be a fun car to drive! Good luck! Hopefully you won't have Audi drama.

With the exception of the virtual cockpit I'm not sure I agree. The Interior of the A4 and A5 is a different story, but that A3 interior looks rather dated and cheap.

Enjoy the Audi drama, particularly if you have any issues with your car. The first rule in Audi/VW customer service handbook is "deny, deny, deny". I speak from experience.

That?s what I?m curious to see. I sat in an A3 a while back and it was unimpressive. Even my Audi loving friend was turned off.

I am excited to hear the inline 5 in person.

Details on BMW drama?
Also, the RS3 is tiny in comparison, I assume you don't have to haul a wife/kids around ever?

I can't lie I went from a BMW (2007 330d saloon auto) to Audi (2012 A7 3.0tdi Quattro), but then back to BMW (2014 435i coupe) and out of all of them the Audi felt the most troublesome to drive... may be this was due to the sheer size of the thing but also the driving dynamics were absolute crap compared to both BMs.
Audi felt like a chore to drive whereas I would make up any excuse just to get out and drive the Beamers -the 435i in particular

Why are people so negative. Variety is the spice of life. I'm a BMW guy but there are tons of cool cars out there!

Congrats on the car bud! It looks great and I'm sure it drives even better than it looks.

True, but he said he was tired of car trouble, so he went for a performance Audi. You can't make this up.

Sometimes people need a change. BMW doesn't have such a great track record either...

Too many people are brand loyal. The RS3 will absolutely spank your old F30 if that is what you are looking for. It's a great looking car, AWD is a plus and most people who complain about understeer have probably not pushed their car far enough to take advantage of oversteer. Audis have always made great interiors, and there are just as many people who complain about the outdated F30/F80 interior. Your complaints about BMW drama is not necessarily indicative of overall reliability of the BMW brand vs Audi, they both lack in this regard. A band new car tends to have less drama than an older car... until it becomes and older car.

That's the main issue for me, but I really like the idea of the S3/RS3.

Enjoy the new ride OP!
