Well I've decided that I'm not going to wait for the new style A3 especially as it seems the new Sportback version will not be available until 2013. So I've just ordered an A3 Sportback SE in Silver with a Light Grey interior, 2.0TDI - 170 s-tronic with around 4.5k worth of options. Delivery should be late February/early March 2012 which will be just right as my existing A3 will be three years old in April 2012. Got a good trade-in value on my existing A3, although I know a local second-hand car dealer who has just purchased my wife's Polo for a better price that the dealer was offering when she bought a new A1, is interested as well. I also got a 9% discount on the new one.
