    Agreed, although it will probably work on an Ibis white too!

    The 'Black Edition' wouldn't interest me if I was buying again now as the black grille, privacy glass and darker wheels aren't my cup of tea.

    But you get the xenons and the FBMFSW which are two very nice (and expensive) options.

    When manufacturers start chucking out 'special edition' models, it tells me they're trying to get rid of current bodyshells.
    Audi did it with the last A4, BMW recently did it with the 3-series.
    I take it a completely new A3 is imminent?

    New A3 is rumoured to be 2010 ,so yeah, your spot on Bowfer, special editions, facelifts are all designed to keep consumer interest.

    According to a list of new and updated models I have from an Audi presentation, the new A3 is indeed due for release in October 2010 so will probably be available in the UK in early 2011.

    I'm sure we can expect to see several more 'specials' between now and then.

    I bought a Special Edition A3 in 2006. That was nothing to do with the facelift this year!

    2 years away isnt what I call imminent tbh, I just think as its down by upto 40-50% then they are including loads of options in special packs to drum up interest, its got nothing to do with a new a3 atall IMHO, economy etc is making them rethink thats all, I mean the fbmfsw is nearly as much as the pack price anyway but you also get all those other options, the headlights alone are over 1k to buy, so to move cars they're adding tech which we all know is of value & seriously discounted, **** wish they'd sell that as a pack to actually buy on its own, would have saved me/us hundreds if not thousands, lol, bar stewards
