    I was due a change in Jan 2010 - I usually change every three years. I suppose if I buy the S3 it will take me up to 2011 - or I could just keep the current car for an extra year.

    These are mostly renderings and photoshops and only the last picture is of an actual test mule, but they'll give you an idea:

    Someone on another forum who has apparently seen one of the prototypes IRL has confirmed that it looked exactly like the red car in the second to last picture.

    You're right that does sound good.... I can only assume that the Porsche take-over of VAG is a done deal then?

    By the way.... Would the R4 not render the TT almost obsolete?!
