    A3 Sportback 2.0T manual ?

    I recently sent a message to Audi UK asking when the A3 2.0T SB would be available with manual transmission.

    I pointed out that the mechanically identical Golf GTi is already available as FWD manual, and that comparable 2WD manual cars from BMW and Mercedes are also available.

    This is the response :-

    Dear Mr ----
    >
    > Thank you for your recent e-mail regarding the Audi A3 Sportback.
    >
    > I would like to advise that Audi UK have no plans to supply this vehicle
    > with a front wheel drive in manual transmission.
    >
    > I hope this clarifies your query. However, if I can be of any further
    > assistance then please do not hesitate to contact me.
    >
    > Yours sincerely

    Makes you wonder what kind of business school the management at Audi UK attended, doesn't it ! How to alienate your customers and lose business in one easy lesson !

    I have had no response from them as to the rationale for their position.

    It is available with DSG right now is it not? I went for the quattro on my A3 2.0T sportback but the DSG is FWD I'm sure - I guess what you're saying is either option is still 1000+ over the basic. Ah well. Go for a softer engine then I guess or fork out.
