    Smile New S3?

    Anyone know if the new S3 is going to get some new wheel options, preferably 19"s ?

    I have a feeling I may return to S3 ownership once I've laid eyes on the new model

    Sorry I can't help with the options, but I can't really disagree with you though, S3s are great, I just wish I had mine back!
    The TTs seems a great proposition but as the months get closer and I live with the reduced dimensions in the current TT I am beginning to question the value for money aspect at 33,500 for a base model, my spec takes it closer to 35K.

    I'm now considering the SB S3 with buckets and a few other goodies - just over 30K, add a GIAC map and I'll have a fast and capable Dad wagon. Tempting especially with the current financial climate.

    Where's your S3 gone then ?

    I don't know on options , but the Std wheels look like they have changed slightly, maybe ask the dealer!

    Take a look on audi.co.uk - the configurator has 5 or 6 wheel designs I think - no 19"s though...

    Sorry, taking over another thread with my moaning.
    As it is taking so long why not ask the dealer if they have a better loan car. The last one I got when my Diesel was in for a few days was an A4 S-Line 2.0T, previous to that it was a 2.0T S-Line A3.
