From July 1st Vehicle Registration Tax over will be based on CO2 emissions rather than engine size. Road Tax is also changing to a CO2 based system for all new cars registered from July 1st. Audi have just announce the new pricing for all models. Most of the diesels have gone down while some petrol models have gone up. All A3 models bar the 2.0TFSIQ S-Tronic 3dr ones have gone down, while the S3 has remained at the same price. Here's a link to the new price list for those of you who are interested: http://plugin.audi.ie/templates/audiplugin/Downloads/Prices_July_2008.pdf For you UK chaps, on the price list the Attraction is the base model, Ambiente is SE and Ambition is Sport. The S-Line is not a model in its own right, but an add on to the three trim levels above.
