    wow that's quite a bit more than the sportback - odd seeing as people in Europe, esp uk prefer hatchbacks you would have thought it would be cheaper

    I was going to get one but the rear seat headroom and space is too small/tight - at 6ft my head touched the rooflining and getting in and out was fun, not!

    2k more than sportback, will be interesting to see if you get any extras that dont come with the sportback as standard though.

    Hopefully the 19s are included in the price.

    I like this bit "On the plus side, the S3 saloon is a real looker, with its shape, stance and proportions working far better than those of the dumpy Sportback"

    :yes:

    I do like the sportback but i think the 2k premium for the saloon makes up for it in looks alone.

    I'm seriously considering an S3 saloon.

    Just got to weigh up if I want to sell my Tiguan & R8, and just have the one car (S3) instead.

    I am more of a dumpy sportsback fan :p, but I do think the A/S3 saloon it makes the A4 saloon a little bit redundant, as is very similar, cheaper and slightly better looking ? Most people will not know the difference at a glance.
    It must knock the sales of the A4 a bit, but have no doubt Audi have a plan that will make lots of money for them.

    I don't know why you say that you have a problem getting in and out of the rear of the saloon. You do know that the headroom is only 1.2 inches less than the sportback, the legroom is the same however the saloon has a wider track and is longer. So why you make that into a problem I don't know. I am sure that really it isn't that bigger deal as the difference is very very small. My daughters boyfriend at 6' 4" drives a Fiat Punto and has no problem, he has sat in the back of our focus and our fiesta and also doesn't have a problem and is able to get in and out of them easily so I doubt very much if getting into the A3 saloon is going to bother him much either. So, do you drive your car from the rear seat, or maybe you buy a car sorely for your rear passengers, I certainly don't I make my own choices...
