    You think tax is bad here... Singapore prices are about 40,000 GBP for a basic 2.0T A3 Sportback. even 115,000 GBP for an RS4.

    Just curious... Wonder where the cheapest place is to buy an A3 2.0T and where's the most expensive "On the Road" price.

    Wow, that's pricey! I bet the cheapest place is the States for a Sportback.

    18" dobule 7-spokes RS4 alloy
    17" winter 5 star alloy
    S-line interior/exterior
    hill hold assist
    curise control
    technician pack (xenons, interior light pack, rear parking sensor)
    aluminum ski rails
    rain sensor, auto dim mirror
    3-spokes sport steering wheels with radio controls
    rear seats boot access, arm rest with cup holders

    And that is already WITH 7% company discount on the base car and 14% discount on equipment...

    Not as expensive as Singapore ... but still cost an arm and a leg.

    You are probably right about that. In fact, Audi is in no hurry to send A3s over to the United States as they make far more profit in Europe and elsewhere.

    But what we lack in overall costs, you gain in options. We get very few "packages" to choose from. Not as "a la carte" as I am sure you are used to. We don't even have a 2.0t w/Quattro option or TDI at all. My wife and I wanted an A3 w/Quattro. Our only option was the 3.2 w/DSG.

    Hi, I am from Singapore and I paid 48,000 GBP for my A3 Sportsback. Went for the MTM 313BHP upgrade and that cost me another 7000 GBP!! It is expensive to drive in Singapore..

    With those prices you should be getting a M3 not an A3... Probably good income in Singapore for Audi drivers though....

    Audi don't sell a single TDI in the USA. That's one of the reasons why they used the R10 at Le Mans, to try and convince the US that diesels are good engines.

    There are other problems too, like in California, which I understand has laws that restrict the use of diesel in passenger cars because of the particulates it emits. Daft really when the CO2 is incredibly low and economy so good.

    Also note that VW sells TDI variants in the US, and has been for a while now, so it wouldn't be too tricky for Audi to do the same eventually.
