arU4ic,

Your right there are a heck of a lot of Great videos on You-tube for the RS3 covering all years.
I have watched a lot of those in the Home Theater on the 123" 16x9 Stewart Firehawk screen.
Trust me those videos with great audio look FANTASTIC and once you start it's hard to stop.

^^^ Yeah, I'm amazed at how well the quality holds-up - those 80's audis really take me back - learned to drive in a 5000.

arU4ic,

I actually owned one of the Audi 5000 models way back then.
I'm pretty sure it was maybe my 1st Audi.
I even had a Custom Audio System installed in it.
We use to do that back then but these days there is No-Reason to anylonger do that.

Spinnetti,

I cannot even imagine having a car for that many years.
I am one of those guys that was into trading cars one after another as I wanted to try as many out as possible.
Now that I'm older (73) that has came to a screeching halt for the most part.
I think this 2019 RS3 might very well wrap up my trading once and for all.
Since I retired back in 2008 and now all my car buddies are gone I just don't drive all that frequent.
I picked the RS3 as a KEEPER as it has everything I want in a Small (Ultra Compact) sedan.

Thats the bummer getting older. Start losing your car friends While I had a big gap between Audi's, for most of my life I had 5-7 cars at a time, so there were 30+ VW/Subaru/Toyota/Honda (plus Ford/Chevy race car tow vehicles) in the mix too. Our main drivers we keep a long time usually. We've only bought a couple new cars, our last being an A4 and a Touareg, both of which we kept for more than 14 years as our daily drivers. I don't think we've ever been below 4 cars though lol. I think I might be on my last (4) gas cars, and my next daily will probably be electric (if I don't succumb to a S7/RS7)

Well in our case we only really have room for two (2) cars in the attached garage.
So trading was the way to try out as many as possible while my income was sufficient to do so.
(No-Children)
I did that for a great many years and believe me I went through a heck of a lot of vehicles while I was doing that.
Don't regret it at all as in my case I'm really mainly into two (2) things.
(1) Fast cars/vehicles
(2) Custom High-End Home Theater

Now at 73 we (Cathy) and I discussed it and I decided to once again go back to the Audi brand.
I have had some of those in the past and my favorite was the Audi S-4.
Had several of those and they were a lot of FUN.

I just traded in a new Challenger Hellcat on this ordered RS3 and the Hellcat had like 2,100 miles on it.
Just to big a car and the worse thing about it is the (HUGE-Blind-Rear-Areas) !!!
It was an Awesome Machine but just not a good fit for this fellow now days.

That is incredible! Having any german car is one thing, but a 5000 even more amazing - having a manual might have been the winning option, those things ate transmissions.
