So bored of this thread already. Enjoy what you have. There's always going to be a newer car around at some point.
So boring for those who already have a current, as so interesting for those who do not already have bought.
Is too much money to not be aware of the production cycles and then be able to buy at the best time.
Does anybody know what "early" 2016 equates to, ie which month?
I've got an S3 on order for Sept delivery and to be honest I'll be pretty miffed if facelifts appear jan!! I know the discounts are good and APR % are pretty low at 5.5% (for Audi) to keep me in this order but tempted to hold out if not too far around the corner.
In September 2010 I ordered a brand new Mk6 Golf GTD. In June 2011 - nine months later - I took delivery of my new baby! It was the 'new Golf' until the September 2012 Paris Motor Show. Then my 'new Golf' became the old Golf. After just over 1 year of ownership I had an old Golf. I was not best pleased.So bored of this thread already. Enjoy what you have.

Is there much is the press about the new A4?I very much doubt it'll be 2016, otherwise the motoring press would have been full of it by now...
The A1 was first shown at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The facelift was shown at the Geneva Motor Show last year for sale in 2015. About 4 1/2 years?At the moment I thing the only people who know when a face-lift or new model will be released are Audi AG.
If you like the current model then buy one. You may not like any new version as much.
Audi models normally change every 7 years. In between their is a facelift...simples!
So on that basis a new model will be 2018/19 and a facelift I'm guessing will be next year.
I would imagine the facelift will look something like the new A4 which is being launched this summer!
Does anyone really believe that brands have some concern or delay for old-buyers having more time his "new car"?

Sounds like a Mercedes advert
You need to study other models in the Audi range and their launch / face lift cycle to understand this better.
September 2012 the A3 was put on sale. So 4 years is a good shout compared to the other model cycles - I'm thinking the rumour mill will be pretty strong this time next year and then an announcement late 2016.
To compare - the Q3 went on sale June 2011, facelift was announced winter 2014 and went on sale early 2015. Almost 4 years. A6 went on sale Feb 2011, facelift announced winter 2014 also with sales early 2015.
Considering the A3 is such an important model for sales, there could be an argument its facelifted earlier to keep up with competition. Total guessing game...
Please, shut up. If you have nothing decent to add, go away. I, and others are prospective buyers, and this information is pertinent and useful to us.So bored of this thread already. Enjoy what you have. There's always going to be a newer car around at some point.
Oh please. Stop turning up old posts. This thread was going nowhere and repeating various others that were around at the time (which was incidentally over a month ago).Please, shut up.

But Jassy don't you worry that your new S3 may be out of date in 18 months time??! It keeps me awake night after night that I've developed a phobia of buying a car for the risk of a facelift comingl dont know and especially dont care..........thats cars for you..........When the Black Edition A3/S3 start making a appearance then its about a year/18 month later the new one makes it to the showrooms
