Not much of a review. I could have done a much better writeup and better photography. They should lend an RS3 to me next time.

Doesn't deserve the RS badge IMO.

I like the look of this car but I suspect it would have been a better track car with a tuned 2.0 lump. Fair play to them for putting the 5 pot in there though - it's an epic motor by all accounts. At the end of the day this is not an out and out track beast like the Civic (IMO). I'm sure it's mental on the road - too fast really but who doesn't like the odd squirt with a nice soundtrack? Probably the new TTRS will be a better option for this type of drive, if that's your fix.

Honestly, even though it is horribly ugly compared to the RS3...I would go Civic Type R over the RS3 for pointy, squirty fun.

Apparently the Golf R is also faster than the RS3 around a track too lol

Haven't driven an RS3, but unless it has far more feel (i.e. more than NONE) than the S3 I drove, give me a lighter well sorted 2WD (RWD or FWD) for fun any day.

High power output and straightline acceleration are but two minor components of a car's driver appeal.
