Well I was one of the first to get an 8V, in October 2012, and it was only on a two year lease so will be due for replacement in just over nine months! Already wondering what to get next. The Sportback e-tron is looking very interesting I must say but a lot depends on when exactly it's available and the prices. Failing that, the dealer currently has an A3 S-Line Saloon in white on 19" rims which looks amazing!!
