    Like the front, but too A1 at the back. I think the black edition would look sweet, and if they flared out them arches and dropped in the 5cylinder turbo it could actually make a proper RS3.

    Time to start saving... Not sure if I like those front seats, though. Alloys are good. Gadgetry is meant to be top notch as well.

    It's ok, 10 out of 10 for the new tech (at a massive premium though no doubt!) although maybe a little 'halfords boy racer' looking on the outside!

    Looks just like a bigger a1. Looks more like a facelift rather then a whole new model. Just my opinion.

    Not a huge fan, one of the side pics looks nice though. Makes me glad I didn't wake though as don't like it enough to want one at the moment.

    I like it now and reckon you all will once you see the S3. I remember having my 8L S3 when the 8P came out and i was convinced I wouldnt like it and would never own one. Now i am the proud owner of an 8P3 S3....

    What do people think of the new A-Class in a non bias way? Looks seriously decent compared to that old munter!

    I like it,its very nice, that is the S-Line by the way. I have been waiting for the launch to decide on my next car so now need to decide new A3 or Range Rover Evoque which buy the way is a lovely drive, different cars I know but already having decided against the Q3 it is down to these two.I will wait to see how the pricing comes out etc and wait to see one in the flesh.
    So I may be back in an Audi anytime soon ???

    Wow! I do like the look of those seats, quilted looks lovely although in black, not a fan of the cream interior. Should they release the Black Edition with the 1.4T I may order?! It's all about the FBMFSW also, got to have that!

    I was in the dealer yesterday and asked if they had any info on it, but nothing has come through to the sales Manager. Although he said he had been to see it in Feb and it was nice.

    I want the inside a lot more than I want the outside. Gadgets would be nice, the front is still a bit "not sure if I like it or not" for me, the back looks awful and from the side view it's exactly the same.

    The only thing I really want is the DAB.

    I like the STYLE of the seats, but that quilted leather is a bit ' Pimp my ride' !!

    The red car is the S-Line model...

    I like it, and to be fair it isn't massively different from the current model. If you look at the rest of the Audi range, the A3 is starting to look dated to I think this new model fills the gap nicely. I'd buy one in Sportback guise for sure!
