    I can't wait to see this comparison from Evo:

    There have been times when we’ve thought Volkswagen’s Golf R was unbeatable in the super-hatch class. Even family rivals such as Audi’s RS3 struggled to get close to the Wolfsburg wonder. But this was before Ford’s latest Focus RS came along. So this month we sent Henry Catchpole to Spain armed with an R and an RS3 to meet the RS, with the clear instruction to declare the best super-hatch money can buy.

    I wonder why Audi won't bring the RS3 hatch to the US? I could live with the lesser handling because that interior is amazing. Put that interior in the Focus RS, and it'd be freaking perfect.

    When I had time to kill a while back (before I knew I was going to order a RS) I went to the Audi dealership in Arlington to look at a S3 they had. I ended up asking the salesman to pass a customer comment up the chain expressing interest in the S3 Sportback and stating that I would order one if it was offered, but that I wasn't interested in purchasing the sedan.

    I doubt they cared higher up, but... Felt good to express that to them in some formal way.

    Really? I cant stand the trend of making your cars look like they have an iPad sticking out of the dash. An then they filled the space where the display should be awkwardly with two air vents? i would have at least like to have seen a clean dash under display..
