    Need more chatter in here :D

    So, how many new model A3s have people seen on the roads so far?

    I've seen a grand total of one, and that was a few days before I got mine. Haven't seen a single one on the road in the week I've had mine so far.

    I'm sure they'll get a lot more prevalent over the coming few months but, right now, I'm actually enjoying the exclusivity! :) This is the first time I've had a model of car which has literally only just been released. My original 8P1 in 2003 was about 4-5 months after they were launched so there were a few about.

    I'm keeping my eyes peeled for other drivers to wave at! - How sad is that? :(

    ​Just enjoy the exclusiveness while it lasts. It is a fantastic looking car, sure you still have a huge grin on your face, lol. :) x

    I've seen a Black SE in Edinburgh whizzing past me when I was walking back from my local last week, looked lovely but must admit at first I thought it was an A1 as it approached.

    Be nice to see view others in different colours in the flesh.

    Was that mine?! Have a TT on there too, week ago Monday? ;) Yes shame is white, but we got a deal on the last of a set that were pretty much already done.

    I'm not sure I've seen any apart from mine!!

    Apart from the demo cars at my local Audi, I've seen only one on the road. This was a red sport model!

    White is the best colour, we've got three ibis whites at home haha!

    Was definately a week ago, could of been Monday? It had the GTI kind of style wheel on it? I just remember there being aload of A4's on there, grey/black? The A3 was at centre of the transporter if that's any help? ;)

    It was heading down the M60 passing Swinton

    I've never been a fan of White, it really sends out the wrong impression. Always felt it looks a bit , try hard / chav / drug dealer'ish. Becoming too common. But each to there own : )

    I've still not seen one of these on the road, or even in the metal... surprising given that Aberdeen is bound to be full of the things.

    Transporter delivered some cars next to me. Skoda garage.
    A, White & Monsoon Grey. 3 door A'3s were at the back. Driver had to take them off first, the Skodas were at the front. The A3,s were sitting outside ny front door, wrapped and all. ha ha.
    No. I did not ask why the A3,s were at the back, when all other.s were Skodas. Bad planning. Ha Ha.
    The new A3,s certainlyly look nice, even with all that wrap.
