EIGHT BE­COMES FIVE

Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

In re­sponse to MO­TOR’s Audi RS3 Sedan vs RS4 Avant New ver­sus Used ar­ti­cle: I’ve just or­dered the lat­est RS3 sedan... it’s a weapon. I’m cur­rently in a VF GTS and my past three cars have been an HSV. But this thing is good. $85,000 is dream­ing though – add a few of the needed op­tions and drive­way pumps it past $100,000 quickly.

I love my GTS, but the RS3 puts power down and goes amaz­ingly. Han­dles great and af­ter years of V8s I even have to ad­mit the five­cylin­der en­gine sounds pretty awe­some too. I guess this is the way the world is head­ing?

Richard Preist­ley, via Face­book Very in­ter­est­ing, Richard. You’re not the first per­son we’ve heard of trad­ing in some tra­di­tional HSV mus­cle for an Audi RS3. Not cars we would’ve thought buy­ers would cross-shop but it’s a brave new world out there!
