Why haven't I seen more A3 (8Vs) on the road?

    I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't seen one of the new A3's on the road. Sure enough no sooner had I thought that then I saw a 'grey' one whilst on my 90 mile daily commute on the A19. Any reason why I'm not seeing more? Is there any source to see what sales have been like for this particular model?

    Try living in Aberdeen, can't move for them. I actually liked going to England in mine as it stood out more. Every other car in this area has 4 rings on it.

    My god the day 13 plate was out ive seen countless of 8v A3 along with the new shape Golfs too. Cant seem to hide from it. Mind you Ive only seen the one sportback A3 with roof rails and it looks the nuts.

    When I first saw the 5 door A3 I mistaken it for the new A6 avant

    The only one I have seen so far was parked in the car park of the offices where I do some volunteering.

    I spotted a very smart black SB looked like an S-Line yesterday parked on the side of the road as I came off the Edin bypass onto A702.



    Thats the only other new SB I've spotted on the road other than my own pride and joy of course :)
