    Facelift S3 3 doors?

    Hey guys

    I have yet to see a 3 door new s3. I've been considering one but haven't seen any in the flesh. Has anyone seen any pics anywhere?

    Been thinking about going Ibis white again, since i've been in an accident with my pre-facelift 8p.

    Only thing is, with the new lights and mirrors, i have yet to see the proportions of the facelifted 3 door. Are the mirrors the same as on the sportback?

    any pictures?
    thanks

    not kean on the chrome fog surrounds or headlights on the red one, silver pic looks better. I dont think the mirrors look too big (havent seen in the flesh!) and the bonnet looks better.

    Like the front, don't mind the mirrors, but hate the wheels.The wheel options are not so good either with only 20 spoke or RS6 S-Line wheels available.

    Me too. Still don't like a single change. I'll never like the wheels though.

    I do like the new bonnet and bumper and I think the wing mirrors I would get used to it.

    Alloys and headlights a step backwards if you ask me...
