JUST COME INTO STOCK – Audi RS3 Sportback in Glacier White is new into stock at Automotive Addiction and has started its journey through our innovative industry leading (up-to-60-hour) labour-intensive preparation process that is designed to satisfy even the most pedantic of enthusiasts. Please read our ‘60-hour Pre-Sale Preparation Process’ on our website or contact us for more information.

Eight years since its launch, finding a high specification, low mileage cherished example of Audi’s barnstorming pre-facelift 8V RS3, complete with the now legendary iron-block engine, is becoming an increasingly difficult task. Fortunately, Automotive Addiction has scoured the UK and sought out one of the very best, so you don’t have to.

This stunning example, resplendent in a unblemished coat of Glacier White paint and loaded with over £10,300 of ‘must-have’ factory options, has covered less than 32,000 miles from new and is offered with just three previous enthusiast keepers. This extraordinary specification commanded a price of £52,000 from the factory, meaning this pedantically maintained pre-loved example is simply incredible value.

Highly desirable options such as the Dynamic pack, Technology pack, Driver Assistance pack, and Comfort and Sound pack with sonically superior Bang & Olufsen sound system, are joined by Advanced Key and supportive Super Sports seats in fine black Nappa leather with rock-grey diamond stitching.

On top of this smorgasbord of factory spec is over £5,000 of modifications and paint protection including an MRC Tuning Stage 1 engine calibration (complete with switchable maps up to 421PS), and an MRC Tuning DQ500 gearbox calibration. These bespoke performance improvements have been accompanied by the application of XPEL self-healing paint protection film to the front-end impact zones, which has shielded the original Glacier White paintwork underneath from stone chips and scratches, preserving the originality and immaculate condition of the vehicle.

Complete with a comprehensive Audi main dealer and specialist service history, including a recent overhaul of all major service items, plus a launch counter of just four (a figure that has been verified by our Audi dealer-level software), this flawlessly presented example, represents an unique opportunity to acquire a pristine example of these highly-prized pre-facelift models.

Our exacting standards must be met at each stage of our methodical process for this RS3 to be offered for sale by Automotive Addiction.

The first part of this process is our crucial pre-purchase inspections, this includes Deep-Dive Diagnostics, Mechanical Inspection & Road Test Analysis to ensure what lies beneath the paintwork is of the highest degree of integrity, followed by an in-depth inspection of all exterior and interior surfaces which includes the Paintwork, Wheels, Glass, Tyres & Interior with a rigorous Paintwork Depth Analysis which identifies to us the originality of the paintwork.

This RS3 has successfully completed our pre-purchase inspections, which enables us to offer this example for sale today. Any maintenance identified by us during our inspections will be completed before moving onto our pre-sale professional detailing work.

Up to 40 hours of meticulous preparation from our highly-skilled in-house professional detailers with over 10-years of experience will be completed prior to sale, free of charge. This includes deep ‘wheels-off’ decontamination cleanse, multi-stage paint correction, brake disc centre refurbishment and deep interior cleanse to ensure this Audi is presented to you in the most optimal condition possible regardless of age or mileage. This unique industry-leading process is documented by us in the form of video and photo and can be supplied to any prospective buyers on request.
