I like it....But again it looks a bit like a facelift 8P3 not much has reaaaaally changed.....Mind you i reckon the new S3 and S lines will look quite tasty!

Looks like a mild refresh/facelift rather than a new car.

New platform (10%) cheaper to manufacture because around 80% of all VAG cars will use it. If the interior follows the A1, i wont be getting one, and my dealer has been calling me about excellent discounts recently. Might go for a used E-class coupe.

Is it me, or does the bonnet look a different colour? The bonnet creases look a bit 'chop'.

what sort of discounts have they be banding about?

i think the new A3 will look good in the flesh, the interior will be a step up from the current one, which is spot on.

I don't like it personally. Looks like an A1 too much.

Think the interior will be a much needed revamp. Unfortunately the new A3 will most run on fibre optic technology which means that any tech fitted in will probs not be able to be fitted into older cars.

I generally don't keep a car longer than 2 years so I doubt il be getting one. S5 or something similar will hopefully be on the cards by that point.

10% off used Audis. Its Bristol Audi and their current stock isn't that appealing TBH.

Sprint Blue is the new Ibis!
Meh. Bit too A1 for me, but yeh, need to see the rear and the interior again. S (and RS) could be tasty. Hopefully we'll see the saloon at Geneva too as a finished article.

Not sold on it yet! Sure the S3 etc will look tidy though. It does looking smaller than the current one I think...

Time will tell I think.
