    Unless they have drastically changed the engine/turbo stg1 will still only be 300 tho.(which should be the starting point)

    A bit pathetic when the likes of the new Renault Megane I think will be 280bhp FWD.

    The new Astra GTC (vxr) will be around that as well.

    I'd still have it over any of its rivals!

    Not disappointed I bought an 8P3 now.

    I had a feeling that with engine sizes and regs going the way they were that it wouldn't see a capacity increase.

    Lets just hope that the styling is a little more inspired the the current S-Line+ styling they've applied to the 8P S3. Can't even be arsed to stitch S3 in the seat backs, but stitch the S-Line. Then S-Line shares FBMFSW, wheels etc....

    Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have bought another one if I didn't rate it, but in some respects it feels a bit half baked already.

    or lower in my case as I have mine set to latest first, which is probably why I missed your earlier post. Does your friend have any dates for the new Sportback version of the A3.

    It's the 'notchback' I want to see, Audi's brand new word for 'small saloon' (like the Geneva concept). Reckon the S3 version should be a little M coupe rival (though the 2.5 would have made it a better fight), perhaps they're already planning a 2.5 RS3 again?
