    I decided not to wait for the new A3 and stick to having one of the last A3 wagons the USA might ever see. So I sold my old A3 back in December 2011 and ordered a 2012 A3. Its been 6 months, but well worth the wait.


    Here is a pic of my last ride 2006 Audi A3 2.0T color murano green with Full S3 body kit and some other things :rolleyes:

    That's odd, my black edition 2012 came with flat bottom steering wheel. Difference between UK/US models I guess.

    Hey guys thanks for the replies, much appreciated

    so as requested here are some photos of my old car, the wheels were O.Z. superterturismos LM's in mat silver, the color of the car is Murano green

    So something i have realized in the states i guess we didn't get the flat botton wheel and are windows dont come tinted,

    but one thing i found interesting is the black package its called a Titanium package in the states. And when you add the Titanium package you automatically get a S-line package as well

    what do you guys think as far as ride comfort goes H&R or Bilstien coilovers?

    Lovely colour :hubbahubba:, I can't say I have seen anything like that before.

    Looking forward to seeing what mods you choose for the new car :icon_thumright:
