    The January Brochure is out (Edition 1.6 01/16).

    The model year is still 2016 with no changes to the spec or prices.
    The only changes I could find between January 2016 and the October 2015 brochure was as follows:-

    page 24
    quattro® permanent all-wheel-drive

    (10/2015)
    Driving forces for each wheel are automatically controlled
    for sporty handling and precise control.

    (01/2016)
    Driving forces for each wheel are automatically controlled
    for sporty handling and based on analysis
    of grip.

    Bluetooth interface section added and adds reference to the link
    audi.co.uk/phonecompatibility

    Audi Music Interface.
    Removes reference to
    Includes 2 cables to connect your
    iPod or USB MP3 player device

    Page 48
    Audi Phone Box.
    Rewording of the description

    So that's it.
    No Bucket Seats and no changes to the selection of wheels that are available.

    One of the reasons I went ahead and ordered mine was that I didn't foresee the buckets being able to order until the 2nd half of this year and that was 6 months ago...far too long to wait.

    Poor show from Audi though as I've had them on my S3 BE and both 8P RS3's

    Facelift will be this year at the exact same time as the A3 and S3. It's a facelift, slight cosmetic difference and some new toys, not a new model. How do you explain them changing the production line to facelift the A3/S3 (SB/Hatch) this year but not the RS3, when it comes off the same line. Makes no sense whatsoever.
    Also, exclusive colour orders are now not available on the A3/S3 or RS3. Brilliant Red removed from A3/S3 and order slots almost full to the run off. Some countries have also closed the order books on the RS3. I think it's safe to say that it will be happening this year.

    Hmmm, looks. It's how it goes and what it does that makes me smile...

    For sure, any manufacturer will be adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that and there's gonna be them screaming me, me, me; but the package ain't gonna be that much different in how it performs

    Ok, a few knobs and switches maybe, a bit of stitching here and there; a crease down the door; change the exhaust pipes and hey, it's a N E W car; be happy...

    Change the suspension geometry a little, 3mm toe-in at the front for example, and you'll change the whole characteristics of the car; and if you don't like it then just change it back; but to change it for an angular new grille, hello...

    Perhaps but I'm talking about being able to drive one around eg a customers car, so you need to factor in production times + delivery. Also there is speculation that the RS3 will be "paused" for a while so whilst you may see the boggo A3's ;) you won't see a RS3.

    Where did this speculation come from TX? I know you posted about it originally.
