    A3 cabriolet







    Dunno what to reckon on that one. Perhaps the official pics might help at a later date.

    Oh dunno wether these pics were posted before (We had the not so good looking A5 front and crossfire rear end last time in silver) but if the 2010 A3 did resemble to something like those pics i'd be pretty chuffed!





    Well looks better than this, although not MASSIVELY different:

    I'm not sure about the convertible. The new A3 pics make it look a touch like a Chrysler Crossfire in my eyes, especially from the angle on the bottom image.

    That Carbiolet looks ugly. That rear of that new A3 looks ugly too. Don't thnk i'll be buying one of those anymore =( which is a shame because I was thinking of trading mine in for one of these.

    Ehhh I hope Audi don't make it official, I really do...

    The convertible looks like a Mondeo from the back.

    I think you are confusing your personal phobias with the way a car looks

    In my opinion if you drive a cabriolet then you fall into the following catagories

    Female
    Gay
    Mid-life crisis

    The only time a hetrosexual guy looks cool is if the car is a vintage/retro or a thoroughbred car.

    So the Cab is def not for me

    I think the cab looks quite good but i agree with the previous post, no heterosexual man should ever drive one.

    Might try and convince the wife to trade in her precious Beetle Cab.

    I don't think I'd get a soft top either fellas, but lets not exagerate, I really can't understand why people think you're automatically gay if you're driving one!
    Depends which one I guess, okay maybe if you're driving a beetle cab! Don't think I've ever seen a bloke driving one?
