    Hi guys, when I ordered my A3 Sport 3dr and then finally was able to collect it (October 2015) the specs had been updated and the car came with Sat Nav as standard but mine didn’t as it was the previous MY.

    Any info on the upcoming MY as I’m looking at the S Line specs and don’t want to miss out by ordering too early again!

    MY19 has already started. Assuming you place it now, you should get exactly what you order.

    The new A3 is 18 months away at least.

    I wouldn't use the online brochure to help you spec the car as they can be old and even incorrect.

    The car configuration on the Audi website is the best way to spec your car as its up to date and it tells you which options you can spec individually and which that have to come as a bundle/pack.

    Once you've finalised your car spec the website generates a unique code which you can give to your local Audi dealer to price up / order

    I spoke to someone in the corporate sales department as i had concerns about placing my company car order if a new model was being released early next year. I was told the new A3 model is well over a year and a half away and the MY19 model may have subtle changes to lights ect.

    I'm still not happy that I'll have my new A3 only for a new model to come out over a year later but hey ho... What can you do. My Golf wsd the same... Had it less than a year and the 7.5 came out! My car policy is extremely limited as it is and I'm lucky to get the spec i asked for. If i delay any longer i may incur a price increase and lose out again.

    The problem with MY changes is sometimes you benefit and sometimes you don't.... I placed my order last week and was told that because my car is to be delivered to me on the 3rd Dec i will be getting the MY19 model.... But I still haven't a clue what those changes will be!

    There will not be any changes to the lights or any of the exterior of the car it's a model year change nothing else l expect the new A3 to be revealed spring next year and in showrooms next October

    I think I’m interested if additional equipment is going to be added as they begin to phase out this modal.

    When the new manufacturing year starts in 2019 the car price will increase but you may get a few extra added as standard. So in effect your paying for options at a discounted rate, but as above, Audi don't give anything away !!.

    Just before the 7.5 Golf came out VW changed the "GT" spec car to "GT Edition" which got 18' alloys, and a pano roof as standard, the price of the car increased but not to the value of the pano roof an 18" alloys. Doing this helps maintain consumer demand for existing model when a new one is on the cards, it also helps VW clear out their supply chain of version specific components.

    I'm not so sure it's 18 months away as the configurator is now saying limited availability for the S3 Sportback and Engines for the Normal A3 (some of this will be emissions) - RS3 says some of the engines subject to availability (they only do one engine)

    Would be a bit early to start limiting stocks if the new model was over a year away for even ordering surely

    A sure sign they are about to launch a new model is dealers giving lower APR and high deposit contribution on stock cars of the existing model - look at the deals you can get on A1 at the moment.

    Its too early for the new A3 yet, they normally release the new Golf first which is expected in the showrooms late 2019

    Audi are doing £3k deposit contribution on A3/S3, which is fairly high, but then they did something similar for A6 (£6k+), which went on for 18+ months:

    https://www.audi.co.uk/quote-my-audi.html#/wizard/finance

    APR still high though, because they sell loads anyway.

    I got £10k in total off £42k A6 Avant almost 2 years ago, and APR of 3.1%, and new A6 isn't out there "yet" but you can register interest in one.

    No insider info I’m afraid. Just what the dealer(s) have given me.

    Placed my order on Thursday 23rd for an A3 Sportback S Line, looks like a late December 2018 or January 2019 delivery due to the new mpg testing system causing delays. I’m in no rush but it feels like a long time!

    I waited about 4 months for mine.

    Going back to your original post did you get anything extra now we are in MY19?

    Yes the Audi sound system is now standard on S Line, little bit of an extra I suppose.

    From my October 15 model all sorts have been added included spec, auto lights/wipers, cruise control, sat nav, CarPlay, led daytime lights
