JUST COME INTO STOCK – Audi RS3 Sportback in Sepang Blue 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.

Audi’s muscular RS3 sportback has long been the hot hatch of choice for performance car fanatics, with each new generation taking the model to ever greater heights of performance and luxury. However, when it comes to the model that many true RS3 connoisseurs covet, the pre-facelift 8V is the one that ticks all the boxes.

Equipped with an iron-block version of the iconic turbocharged 2.5-litre, five-cylinder powerplant, it produces arguably the very best soundtrack of any hot hatch past or present. Add in huge potential for tuning, and you have a package that punches way above its price point.

This particular example of this most desirable of hot hatches raises the bar even further, coming complete with every single factory optional extra from new except carbon engine bay pack, making this officially the highest specification pre-facelift we have ever offered for sale. This includes over £13,000 of factory optional extras including panoramic glass roof, advanced key, carbon interior pack, Dynamic pack, Driver Assistance pack, Comfort and Sound pack with high fidelity Bang & Olufsen sound system, RS Design pack and, of course, the excellent leather-clad SuperSports seats with diamond quilting.

On top of this stellar specification, comes a further £8,000 of Genuine Audi Retrofits. These include a host of upgrades from the later face-lift model including Audi MIB2 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, 19in blade wheels, dynamic rear LED lights, non-wavy front brake discs, a flat-bottomed Alcantara steering wheel and an advanced tyre pressure monitoring system.

Finally, the previous RS enthusiast owner also endowed this meticulously maintained example with over £6,000 of aftermarket enhancements. These include a Leyo Motorsports cold-air intake system, Forge Motorsport front-mount intercooler and Milltek Sport secondary cat bypass pipes, all controlled by a Ecotune Stage 1+ engine calibration and a TVS Engineering Stage 2+ TCU gearbox calibration. The result of these power producing modifications is an increase in output to 423PS and 571NM of torque and an even more sonorous tone from the RS Sports exhaust.

The condition of the car is truly flawless and belies its four previous keepers and verified 56,300 miles on the odometer, an attribute that is supported with a fastidious Audi main dealer and specialist service history since new.

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.
