    But, I have seen replies on this post and other posts from PilotAudi regrading PP's and his opinion of things Audi. I have found some of his replies to people fairly insulting at times and not very helpful, it looks to me that majority of people have PP's fitted on there S3's on here so far. I understand you may have a issue with your past employer (MD) that is giving you a problem of insulting people, but it's really filling this post with cr@p.
    And to preconceive all pp owners as intolerable @rseholes (prejudicing purely based on their purchasing behaviour) sounds like an unreasonable attitude that his former boss would have possessed, slightly hypocritical!

    I'm in the process of setting up a company that will donate half of its profits to good causes, yet I'm still considering buying a pp. Does that make me self centred and evil... I'd argue not!

    Just found out that the 'Sedan' is cheaper for Audi to build than the Sportback!

    Those on here who keep slagging off Apple for charging too much for something which can be bought from Samsung for a cheaper price, yet have still gone and bought a Saloon, officially have no leg to stand on when arguing their case.

    Aesthetics and desirability add perceived value!

    Pilot Audi style irrational rant going on there.

    On the aesthetics,
    Saloon is the best looking of the three, no doubt. Worth the premium if you don't need a hatchback.
    Followed by the Sportback.
    Lastly the 3 door, which does very little for me for me.

    Talking about irrational...

    All personal opinion (as usual), the saloon is the worst looking to me. So yes, there is doubt, and no, not worth the premium to some people

    Until i see the S3 Saloon in the flesh i can't really decide what i like best, however if they released it at the same time as the SB i would have probably gone for the saloon due to having 2 previous hatchbacks...

    I simply couldn't wait until July 2014 for the Saloon, it does look beautiful though!

    Here's hoping they release the RS3 in the Saloon version, if they do then i will be all over it!

    Your dislike of people disliking the fact that Apple charge too much is irrational, as is the link to the Audi saloon.

    Irrationality is cognition, thinking, talking or acting without inclusion of rationality. It is more specifically described as an action or opinion given through inadequate use of reason, emotional distress, or cognitive deficiency.

    IMO Apple does charge too much for their products in comparison to the competition.
    Eventually things catch up on overcharging (as has been seen by the fact that the iPhone is no longer the daddy of Smartphones, arguably not in the top three).
    Does it stop me buying Apple, no, but I can't disagree that their products are overpriced.

    It's just a brilliant colour. I've taken some photos but the car was dirty (so call them "real world" shots) and some close up flash photos to show you the paint flecks. It's just an awesome colour. Will post them later on

    /anorak on/ I just looked at the audi configurator and it seems as though only the TT'S' and S3 are the non RS models to be granted Panther Black as an option (excluding custom obviously), whereas universally on the RS models is seems to be available. It's also cheapest on the S3!

    More and more reasons to just have it

    I didn't sit in the sports seats and I know that I can't afford to add both!!
