    I see a thread in the A4 section detailing changes for MY10 build. Anyone know anything for the A/S3?:confused:

    No information yet on the MY10 for the A3, but reading the A4 document it does indicate that the 'stop/start' system will be added to the A3 1.4TFSI in both 3-door and Sportback forms.

    New Satnav or new software I wonder? Parking sensors linked to Sat Nav sounds good but suggests whole new Satnav, that sounds like a death knell for any updates for the current RNS-E.

    Also...I suppose it will push down the ebay value of current RNS-E units. There are definitely hardware changes involved if the screen is high-def and it can read SDHC cards.

    Do I have to wait until 2010 for these options?
    I'd love to have the visual parking system - which I'm guessing is a reverse cam.
    And also the 32gb RNS would be nice.

    How come the bucket seats have jumped from £1600 to £3600? Seems a tad steep!

    No. Basically, according to the document I've seen, any new car ordered after 9 April 2009 will be to the 2010 Model Year spec.

    Audi changes production from one model year to the next on 1st June each year and with the normal 8-10 weeks delivery anything ordered now will come through as a 2010 Model Year.

    Ok... so if I were to go into the dealer tomorrow and order a new car, I would get these options? I was going to leave out the RNS-E and eBay / retrofit one - but if I can get a newer model then it might be worth paying the extra for!
    I just checked the website, but these new options aren't on it yet.

    Actually, when I think about it - it must be the same with VW?
    I ordered my GTI Edition 30 in March 07 and got it in June. The folk who ordered it a few weeks later than me had a few insignificant changes - like the econ button changed to A/C and the stereo played MP3s etc.

    I still cant see where the extra 2k for the seats is coming from though?!
    The bluetooth is a bit cheaper though...

    That engine start / stop function on my g/f's 1 series convertible drives me nuts. I end up switching it off.

    It's not an extra 2k for buckets, it's £3600 total for buckets with exclusive leather, i.e coloured.

    Hope the new sat nav it easy to get hold of soon enough!

    That's right - The April 2009 Price List still shows normal bucket seats as £1665.00

    Thanks for that...
    The parking system with visual indicator is in there, but there is no mention of a different RNS. There is nothing about a camera - so I wonder if its just a chart showing how close to each sensor something is?

    I noticed that when I looked through the PDF!

    Is it really worth changing a RNS-E for the new version if its just a slightly better screen and bigger memory cards?!

    My mums Lexus and my g/f's dads ML63 both have reverse cams and I think they're brilliant! I looked on the VW website at the new Golf GTI mk6 and it has the reverse cam built into the VW badge for an extra £150.

    My g/f's bmw's parking sensors are terrible and beep for no reason all the time. At least with the camera you can see what they're beeping at!

    Well that's BMWs for you. Mine work just as they should do.

    There's no way I would pay the price for the RNS system anyway. Personally I find my £99 TomTom does all I ask of it, including working with UK postcodes. But each to his own.

    Depends on the price tbh. Although I can quite happily survive with the two 2GB SD card I have now I wouldn't mine being able to use 32GBs! Plus I would hope it's a new interface too. I like the current one but there's room for improvement.

    I'm still in 2 minds whether to stick with the standard stereo and get an RNS-E from eBay... or to spec the new one for £1600.
    I realise a TomTom is probably better and cheaper, but I like the look of it in the dash and it fits in with the bluetooth kit better. A 32gb one would mean I could get most of my iPod on a tiny card and never have the need for an iPod adapter... and if it were 2 x 32gb then I'd be laughing!!!

    Audi always change their model year production on 1 June, giving details of the changes late April or early May. They have done this ever since I had my first Audi back in 1985.

    I see everything, lmao, but maybe mate, but I do like the changes, if it also has the electronic brake then I might stick with 8P now.

    Has anyone got the part number for the 6Q6 Aluminium gear knob or is 6Q6 it? is this a new addition, I can't remember seeing it as an option before.

    Also I gather the new RNS-E will just be brighter to match the new DIS display, I have a new 09 A4 S-line at the moment whilst mine is having the gear box replaced (audis 3rd time lucky!) and this has the new brighter screen in it. Looks ace!.

    I think the premium and premium plus will be the US specs, as they tend to do that over there with then optional packs.

    According to my dealer MY10 production for S3 starts in Week 21. That's only two weeks after I was originally scheduled. I'm keen to get the improved Nav features and AMI, so my dealer is looking into the earliest possible MY10 production slot they can get me.

    That's a bit of a shame, I've only just put my order into my firm's leasing scheme and I really like the current gear knob on the MY09 A3 Sport with the aluminium shaft. Anyone know what the MY10 one looks like? Looking in brochures/Audi used car finder, it seems the standard A4 knob looks like the one on the A3 Std or SE model? There isn't an A4 Sport. If it's like the one on the A4 S-Line / A5 Sport though I'll be well pleased, but imagine this is a cost saving thing. :huh:

    With a leasing company, whether I even get an MY10 or not may depend if they source my car from stock.
