    All the white is missing is the black optics!

    Are they new front lights too?

    Not over keen on the black one's wheels, but overall they look well.

    S3 + SPORTBACK = NO!

    Dame Edna lights and now big silver Shrek ears. Nice! NOT!

    Do prefer the new wheels though, so there's one consolation...!

    Why, I think it look great, like a mini RS4/6!!! perfect for me as well when I have another sproglet, unless the RS4's have stopped their freefall by then:)

    Does not look as good as the 3 door IMO but can see why it appeals to so many people.

    Those arches are def flared more than the current version, Audi did say they "revised" them....wonder if they flared them more.

    Plus the white sportback above does not have the chrome surround on the foglights in some pics that its meant to have.

    They don't look flared at all, infact they look the same as the current model apart from the omission of the indicator on the fender...that must be the revision they refer to?

    Have to disagree there, look at the black S3 just above, they "look" more flared.

    S3 Sportback just doesn't work for me, sorry. Not seen S3 facelift in the flesh yet, but saw 20TQ facelift today, got to say do like the front end, looks more aggressive than the current model.

    The parallel park assist puts some nasty parking sensors on the side of that white sportback too!

    The normal front sensors look ok but the one nearest the wheel is the parallel park assist one and its like a crater!!

    liking the new standard alloy wheels, they look better in the pictures than they do on the Audi configurator. not liking the the S line alloys on the white sportback though...if you go for a different colour wheel I think black looks best on them

    What the F*#k is that about, if you need parellel assistance not sure you should be behind the wheel of a car.

    Jamie , think your car is going to look lush, 20TQ looks good so the S3 will look the business. May take the plunge myself after I have seen one in the flesh.

    I'm currently deciding whether I want white or black on my S3 Sportback, although I would order Brilliant black over Phantom black (I assume these pics are all Phantom).

    I'm really struggling to decide, but I think the Darth Vader factor in this pic swings it to black for me. This car looks mean as hell.

    When it comes to resell, black and silver cars normally sells the easiest. If you dont care about resale value etc go for the white as it's different but the black one does look very good also!

    Was torn between sprint blue and black, but the "vader" sold me! Gonna go with phantom though. Thinking chrome overload on brilliant black but the extra gloss of the phantom should balance it out a bit.

    To me, some Audi models lately look like they're trying a bit too hard. Alsorts of add-ons and shiny bits etc. Just my opinion....
    The white one looks good with the black roof though.
    Really don't like the new S3 wheels at all. The old style are much more 'Audi'.
    The wing mirrors couldn't be any less sporty looking if they tried. Have any of the tuning companies released a nice aftermarket mirror unit yet?? I'd definitely be tempted to replace the whole unit for a smaller more streamlined one if it was a possibility.

    is it me or are the mirrors a bit clumsy?
    they dont look as sleek shape compared to the previous.

    Just looking at that sportback. It looks really good i have to say. But how much extra space does it actually give you over the normal S3 and how much more does it cost?
