The guys at Option Auto take the new RS3 for a spin.

Upcoming show: Broke.Down 2011

Once again I'm late in posting this preview, but the next show on the itinerary, which is this upcoming Sunday August 28th, is Broke.Down 11'. Broke.Down is a VW/Audi enthusiast gathering which takes place at a very unique location; Gardener Airport in Gardener Massachusetts. This show is organized and run by members/friends of one of the larger clubs in the German enthusiast scene, known worldwide as Club Broke Status. Of all the less known niche shows I haven't been to, but really want to go to, it's Broke.Down. Rarely do you ever have a show of this size and quality of cars where admission is completely free.
