Plenty pics of the changes here:

Then it's spot the difference....there's a couple of other tweaks there.
Only advantage with Michelin is that they do last 20000 miles plus.
My A3 came with Dunlops - don't know why new A3s come with different makes?
After 14000 there's still a decent bit of tread left but will look out for the quieter ones for sure.
Up to 14000 miles now and I can't say mpg has changed much since day one - mix of driving 49-50mpg, that's with S-Tronic.
From what I've seen I am not sure cruise control helps the figure - when I use cruise the DIS mpg figure starts to drop.
