    Gorgeous!! And would make a cheap secondhand deal when they fail to shift it a couple of years down the line.

    I'm still waiting to see a Solar Orange one...

    I think it's an awesome colour but don't have the balls to order it myself, or the extra £2000, I'll stick with Estoril.

    Personally don't understand buying an audi, which for me is all about understated class, and then painting it bright green! Save it for Fords and Vauxhalls IMHO

    Yes sticking anything poseresque on an Audi rather spoils the effect.

    I think that should be a good size.

    If anyone wants a 1,000 mm one in silver let me know, I ordered one a little too big - It just fits but covers right across the entire back window. Free to good home.

    I was going to put it on my wife's Q5 and wonder when she would actually notice, then again that would open up another can of worms about never looking in the rear view mirror.

    Not really seen an exclusive one I liked to make me think that it looked "exclusive" enough for the price but I am getting quite attached to the really dark green "tiefgrun" the more I look at it, sort of reminds me of the old Lotus Carlton colour of imperial green that looked black at certain angles.

    Wrong. 3rd best looking version of the S3 is the 3 door.

    I personally think the 3dr is the worst of all 4 8v shapes - the cabrio is a nice car.

    Mine would go

    1. Saloon
    2. SB
    3. Cabrio
    4. 3dr

    Only didn't buy a saloon because of the dog!

    3. Cab
    4. saloon

    Didn't want a saloon as SB is the best design IMHO and I don't do dogging!!

    lol guys seriously? What age are you? Do you have children? As those are the only 2 things I can think of that could possibly make someone choose SB over a 3 door. 3 door is the epitome of hot hatch, with the 3 door s3 being the ultimate hot hatch in my eyes. When you add extra doors it just waters that down and turns it into a boring family car. I honestly cringe even just looking at a SB s3, its just wrong. Just my own 2 cents on the subject. Not meaning to offend the SB drivers, each to their own and all that.

    That's why they decided to make the 3dr RS3 yeah? with the official line being that the company reckons a three-door version would offer limited practicality gains over the (supposedly) dynamically sharper TT-RS. So what's there to suggest that Audi's view wouldn't change when the next RS3 is released, arguably the ultimate hot hatch?

    For me

    1. Saloon
    2. Cabrio
    3. 3 door
    4. SB

    However, they are all good looking cars. I think there seems to be a view on this forum that body shapes etc are all marmite, love or hate, it's a bit bizarre. Yes I prefer the saloon shaped S3 but that doesn't mean I think the SB is sh!t! I think they are all obviously closely related and thus share a lot of (good) design highlights. Personally the slimmer rear lights, lower roof profile and more balanced front to rear looks of saloon clinched it for me, but I've seen some lovely looking SB's on this forum too, so hey, love your own choice but don't slag other people's off....

    i also happen to much prefer the Sportback's look over the 3dr version. I fail to see what age or having children have to do with visual preference.

    I agree. We have no kids and I much prefer the SB for ease of use.

    If I thought the s3 in any guise was anything more than a fast hatch (ie a sportscar) then I would be deluded.

    One good old friend (now sadly passed) said to me this - you know your car is properly special when it either a model in its own right (ie chassis up) or it is made from majority custom parts for just that model. For eg, a 911 or an m3.

    The s3 is an a3 with stick on bits and a decent engine. It's still an a3.

    An rs3/rs4 is different though. Custom brakes, custom engine, custom body panels etc etc.

    Back to the point - it doesn't matter what variant a3 we're driving as it's still only a family run around (cabrio excluded obviously)

    Agree partly with what you said, however, surely the fewer number of S3's in circulation compared to A3's would also suggest that it was something 'properly special' something over and above what are normally manufactured in the thousands where as the S3 in possibly the hundreds? I don't know exact figures but you see my point.

    I am genuinely astounded that someone would choose a sportback s3 over a 3 door JUST for looks. A 3 door version of anything, almost by default, looks sportier than the 5 door equivalent. Ive always thought that VW done a better job with the mk5 Golf, as they at least kept the car virtually the same, just adding the extra doors. But Audi stretch out the a3 to make the sportback and just make an awful job of it IMO, and then to do it to the S variant....sacrilege.

    For ease of use, exactly. Not gonna argue that one. Thats what sportback is all about as far as I can see. But I do not think that this works well on the s3, as the s3 is just that little bit more special, and to bang on extra doors for the children and the shopping and blah blah just ruins it totally. I do agree with your other points though. I know an s3 is nothing more than it is, but that doesn't mean you have to ruin what it is either.

    Well of course its going to offer limited practicality. The RS3 shouldn't be about practicality! The fact that Audi released the RS3 in sportback (and with only automatic gear box might I add) has annoyed me since I first heard about it. Total travesty in my eyes and such a let down. Obviously down to the type of customer that would buy the RS3, typically being old enough to afford the thing to start with, wanting more practicality out of the car, rather than just looks, and if there arnt enough people with the dosh for a 3 door, then Audi will probably think twice before making it unfortunately, which is what happened with the RS3. And I think that's the reason why we see so many s3 sportbacks actually, people wanting the s3 package, but also want the practicality. But to me that's compromise. If I wanted more doors I would buy an s4. Just my opinion folks, as Ive said before, each to their own. For me its all about the 3 door hot hatch with manual box. Happy new year to all my fellow Audi drivers

    It is not the ultimate hot hatch, far from it. It's a functional hatch back with good power. It is a boring family car, but that's fine.
    I am only driving a S3 because it comes in 5 doors and has 4WD. If I didn't require 5 doors (due to having a baby on the way), then I'd be driving something that handles far better, has more character and is more fun than the S3.

    Looks are subjective, but I think you'll find the majority of sales of the S3 will be in SB, people that don't need the practicality of the SB will not be hard pushed to find better alternatives in this sector.

    Oh yeah, and your 3 door manual is slower than my boring automatic family car..........
