Saw this on another site thought it might be of interest to some
Very interesting!! Now is not the time to buy an A3 then. I'm guessing the facelift will look a bit like the Cabrio.
Facelift A3 built in Brussels?
It's practically a French car!
That's slander of the worst kind!!
Since when is Brussels in France?
It could be a fake...
Something to choose against the CLS then...
It's not. But it's near France, hence the use of the word practically.
There was talk of an A4 Sportback a couple of years ago, but that appears to have been dropped in favour of an A5 version.
I wonder what the R4 is?
Well so is Neckarsulm and Ingolstadt is only "bit" further east.......
I would view that document with great suspicion for a number of reasons, not least the fact that the typeface used in the page heading is not exactly OEM Audi......
Spook by name....
I noticed what Spook noticed, the Audi header at the top isn't OEM. It's probably a fake
and they forgot to put the word "Production" above "Location 3"
This looks like a fake to me also. Its nothing like the S3 pre-release document etc I got from a german site months before production.
Me defo thinks 100% fake.
Why on earth would anyone fake an Audi rollout list...
How bored would you have to be?
There's another one here, which looks more genuine :-
It is consistent with a recent Autocar article, which said early 2008 for the A3 Cabrio, mid 2008 for the A3 facelift (same styling tweaks as the cabrio), and 2010 for the all-new A3.
Auto Express is carrying pics of the A3 Cab this week (including on the cover). The text says"the styling tweaks will appear on the rest of the A3 range towards the end of 2008"
There is also a test of the 1.9Tdi 'e'
I did read in autoexpress i think this week that once the A3 cabrio comes out - the rest of the A3 lineup will be updated with new front from this - including the LED running lights which are popping up on all the audis lately - this is late next year i think around sept time ish - i'm guessing this will be the last facelift before a completely new A3 appears????
