    My wife's new A3 Cab S-Line

    From the TT-Forum where I am regular contributor:

    Being Julie's birthday this is her present:



    A very happy girl...





    And her trade in in the background



    Initial thoughts is the Cab is far better built than her 3 year old A3 2.0fsi Sport. The 2.0Tdi has massive amount of torque, however it does seem to cruise in a very high gear at low speeds (5th at 30mph in normal drive on the S-Tronic). The Xenon headlamps means the DRLs are LEDs and when she followed me home, the car looks stunning with them, the shape of the DRLs make the car look low and wide (with the roof down). The boot is still very big, bigger than the A4 cab, with the option to drop the rear seats for even more space. The ride comfort is better (on 18" wheels) than her old A3 (17").

    In Phantom Black the car looks right, however in other colours (other than white) we feel the looks are more subjective.

    All in all very happy. :P :P :P

    That looks great, I think your right about colours, some suit the shape much better than others.

    I don't like it! Find the shape not right for a cabrio... Same applies to the 1-series cabrio.... horrid!! Even though I think A3 looks a bit better.

    But each one to its own. Enjoy the sun mate!

    Very nice. Ordered this one the last Friday in May at Portsmouth Audi and expected delivery late August, so came through very quickly.

    Ooo looks very smart, though I do think it's a bit out of proportion slightly. Looking a bit short on the back when the roof is up.
