Long time Audi owner but just found this site - better late than never eh !
Recent car history is had a 2008 3.2 litre TT, changed in 2011 to a TTS which is my current car.
Looking at placing an order later this year ... possibly for a new S3.
After having owned 2 x TT's I am ready for a change and there are times when I would like some practicality which the TT does not really give.
The new S3 looks a very nice package and ticks most of my boxes, albeit I have to see one first hand and drive one to make sure it is the right car for me.
I understand the price for the 3 door is hinted to be the same as the outgoing model, so assume £31k, which to me sounds fair.
At one point there were rumours of the price being as high as £35k which would not be so good.
My Dealer advises me that the price will be confirmed in April and Dealer demo's will start to arrive in September.
So a while yet before test drives are possible.
Spec-wise (& subject to price) I am so far thinking ...
Solid red paint
19" alloys (if available) - although I do like the alloy design used in the main publicity pics.
Black rear windows
The fancy stitched / quilted effect seats.
Full LED lights
I think the contrast of red paint / black windows / sunroof would look good and love those seats !
As there is no next-gen S3 forum yet, I assume this is the right place to post ?
So anyone else, seriously interested in the new S3.
