    I have just read that there is to be a test drive of a new A3 Sportback in next week's Auto Express.

    I read what I thought was a new review on an A3 Sportback SE 2.0tdi What Car and 1.6tdi SE in Autoexpress


    Both reviews look very promising albeit the reviews are a bit on the short side, but very few issues with the new A3 SB in either article :racer:

    There is a new A3 sportback doing a tour of Uk Audi showrooms (confirmed at Audi city London today) but they didn't know where/when. Grrrrrr.

    Also a review up on autocar of a 2.0 TDI SE, with pictures in Silver. They're still saying roof rails are standard, but pretty sure mine cost me £250!

    Was thinking that about the roof rails as well.
    Audi dealer in Edinburgh said they were an optional extra and showed me an info sheet when I was ordering my sportback so I wonder where the auto express reviewer picked up that they were standard?

    Black or Silver Roof rails are listed in the A3 Pricing and Specification brochure as a £250 option for all models of new A3.

    Magazine reviews often get things wrong!!!

    Not all models - just the Sportback, as with the 8P :)
