    Hey newsboy,

    Great! Can't wait to see it.

    Typical though that someone on the forums gets a hold of the PDF before it's up on the Audi site!

    You could always upload it to one of the file sharing sites.

    Any chance you can email me the PDF?

    Following on from newsboy's post that the new brochure and pricelist was available in PDF format I send an email to my sales contact asking when the brochures would be available. I have just received a reply with a copy of the PDF brochure attached.

    So if anyone wants a copy send me a PM with your email address and I will forward you a copy by return.

    I will also put a copy on my personal website and post a link as soon as I've done it. Within the hour!!

    cheers mate. The back end of the new S-Line in the brochure looks amazing, probably cos of the new diffuser on the rear bumper.

    Edit: Noticed the new 1.4TFSI also has the same 0-62 sprint speed as the 2.0TDI 140PS now, go refinement go!

    If case any one interested in a Diesel hasn't noticed, both the 140 and the 170 now come with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

    The only other thing that would effect me is that Xenon headlights are now only available as an option on the S-Line and as standard on the S3. Everyone else has to make do with halogen headlights. A great leap backwards !! I see many more A3s fitted with aftermaket Xenon kits or retro-fitted OEM xenons with the LED driving lights and no automatic levelling or headlamp washers.

    Thanks for that PDF excellent I notice that the emissions for the S3 is now 199 will that fall in the new lower car tax bracket?

    Band J (181-200g/km) as oppose to Band K (201-225g/km). That is if the new VED rates actually makes it through, the government is under so much pressure recently cos of Fuel Duty tax and VED tax

    The first thing I look for (CO2 on the 170 engine) is TBC!

    134 CO2 for the 140 diesel isn't too bad, neither is 171 for the 2 litre turbo petrol

    The Audi Germany website gives the same 134 for the 140 diesel and 148 for the 170 diesel. That's a bit less than the current 157 for the 170 diesel.

    Cheers David - I've just been looking around and I think you'll be right for the 170 quattro - I'm guessing it could / will be a little less for the non quattro but the German's only have the ability to buy the 170 as a quattro so can't check that out.

    Few observations, questions:

    1. The 1.8T is now 0.4 seconds quicker to 60, but power output looks the same, what has changed to make the facelift quicker?
    2. What is the point of a 7 speed DSG over a 6 speed? Although its quicker to 60...
    3. The 170 TDi cant have the 7 speed DSG, just the 6.
    3. The std sport alloys on my 2007 are now a 450 option! Not keen on the new std alloys.
    4. The SE model now does not come with much kit, but then again is a lot cheaper...
    5. Do you reckon Audi have improved the sound proofing as part of the facelift?

    Cheers,

    Tim

    Yes, looks like the CO2 value is going down from the current 217 to 201.

    1. New model has a new flat underbody design which decrease drag (ala wind resistance) mainly to reduce CO2 emission but also improves general aerodynamics allowing for a faster sprint time across the entire range.

    2. New 7 speed DSG uses a pair of dry clutches instead of wet clutches which reduces weight as well as other improvements.

    4. The new SE model are there to appeal to fleet buys as it has a much more attractive price compared to the old one, the decrease in price and option allows the buyer to choose exactly what they want. Audi stated that if you was to spec the new SE to old SE spec, the price would be very similar.

    The old 6spd DSG can only handle up to 300Nm of torque afaik. The new one has a much higher torque rating but I think its in the process of being fine tuned as the DSG S3 is suppose to be launched later in the year.

    The limit for the DSG always used to be given as 350Nm although I'm sure this was being a little conservative. My current A3 2.0 TDI-170 Sportback produces 350Nm of torque and has a 6-speed DSG gearbox.

    no 3.2 there

    The 3.2 quattro has been discontinued from Model Year 2009. So has the 2.0TFSI quattro manual, replaced by the 2.0TFSI quattro S-Tronic. There will also be a 2.0TDI (170PS) quattro manual, probably from September 2008.
