    Post Corrr! Blimy!! A3 2.0T is well expensive in Singapore!

    You think tax is bad here... Singapore prices are about 40,000 GBP for a basic 2.0T A3 Sportback. even 115,000 GBP for an RS4.

    Just curious... Wonder where the cheapest place is to buy an A3 2.0T and where's the most expensive "On the Road" price.

    Wow, that's pricey! I bet the cheapest place is the States for a Sportback.

    You are probably right about that. In fact, Audi is in no hurry to send A3s over to the United States as they make far more profit in Europe and elsewhere.

    But what we lack in overall costs, you gain in options. We get very few "packages" to choose from. Not as "a la carte" as I am sure you are used to. We don't even have a 2.0t w/Quattro option or TDI at all. My wife and I wanted an A3 w/Quattro. Our only option was the 3.2 w/DSG.

    With those prices you should be getting a M3 not an A3... Probably good income in Singapore for Audi drivers though....

    There are other problems too, like in California, which I understand has laws that restrict the use of diesel in passenger cars because of the particulates it emits. Daft really when the CO2 is incredibly low and economy so good.

    Also note that VW sells TDI variants in the US, and has been for a while now, so it wouldn't be too tricky for Audi to do the same eventually.
