Pretty sure that's their demo car or it's very similar. Had a drive in it yesterday.

 

Apparently it's had a deposit put down on it already!

I thought it was quick and comfortably familiar but there were a few things that jumped out at me, nothing more so than the lack of noise - the cabin is definitely quieter than the current car to the point that I didn't believe it had the sports exhaust until I saw the spec sheet after the drive. The gear change and throttle response are also different but I couldn't tell you how.

 

Also picked up on few little things that only a current owner would, for example they've swapped the positions of the alcantara on the steering wheel?? And the drive select button now shows the options in the main MMI and annoyingly hides your nav.

 

I have virtual cockpit in my Q5 and it's lovely but it's certainly not a must have for me and actually the performance of it was noticeably slower in the RS3.

 

The one thing I loved actually was the sunroof which obviously isn't a new feature, I just wish I'd specced it on mine  :)

 

All in it's still a great car but for me there's no reason to swap. What did you think?

Didn't feel any quicker and the lack of noise was staggering, literally no pops or crackles on the downshift. Tbf the car sounded great when the salesman pulled away in it but way short of the PFL. Loved the virtual display though and steering wheel felt good too. Tough upgrade for a current owner although new owners will love it I'm sure.

Edit - did it have mag ride? Suspension felt better to me.

The spec said it didn't have magnetic ride which shocked me. Like you I thought it felt much better

 

Agree completely, it's not worth an upgrade but what an amazing car for a new owner

 

Edit - also surprised a demo car didn't have mag ride...

Interesting about mag ride, perhaps better to drop it and go standard next time. In the PFL we couldn't do that of course as they lumped it together with sport exhaust the scoundrels!
