There are now 3 different versions of the A3 8P. Talking about them on this forum can be confusing as the terms facelift or pre-facelift can each refer to 2 different models!
I started this thread to find out if Audi gave the 3 versions unique identifying names that we could start to use. If not then we could create our own in house name.
As you'll see below, Aytheee suggested the names 8P1, 8P2 and 8P3 and pretty much everyone was in agreement.
I would like to reiterate that this naming system is only in use within this forum on ASN. Anyone on other websites or anyone at Audi will not have a clue what you're on about!
Can't work out which one is which? Below are the 3 models of the 8P (using the grill as the identifying feature) in their various guises:
Audi A3 8P1
Audi A3 8P2
2005- June 2008
Audi A3 8P3
Thanks for the input guys
