    S3 Sportback Pictures

    Can anyone who takes delivery of an S3 Sportback in the next few months please post it on here as I have sold my 335d and have ordered an S3 Stronic but am not 100% whether to go 3 door or Sportback and need to see a 'proper' picture of a Sportback. I will look around the dealers too but thought it was a good idea to post here. I need to see the side view mainly as the 'normal' sportbacks seem to look like little estates.

    I'm hoping to get one for a company purchase, but depends on discounts etc. I will happily post pics, but I'm sure there will be others who will get their S3 Sportback before me, seeing as we haven't even ordered yet.

    From the pics I've seen in reviews of the S3 Sportback, it doesn't look any less 'estatey' than normal Sportbacks. I actually like the look.

    I'm just thinking that with the S3 'bits' added on it may look better....

    I don't think there's any doubt it will look better - no less estatey though.

    interestingly - it is cheaper to lease an S3 sportback than it is to lease a 3dr - apparently the residuals are miles better on the 5dr - which is trange given that people obviously see that the 3dr is the better looking car!

    So not sure how they work that one out?

    Well I, for one, have always thought the Sportback is better looking than the 3 door.

    Personally, I prefer the Sportback. However, I don't think residuals are based entirely on looks!

    The 5dr sells better than the 3dr, so I'll assume that is why the residuals are better.

    hmm I'm not sure... I'm currently torn between the 3door and the Sportback. The SB is going to be a lot more practical however I think I'd choose the 3door on looks.
    Maybe it's because the 3door has been around a lot longer and I've had two...having said that... after seeing this...
