    This is intended to be factual rather than political.

    Before Brexit was discussed in 2014 the U.K. £ was trading at €1.40. Today it is at € 1.10. The Euro is being billed as a strong currency going forward by pundits.

    so... we face nearly 30% devaluation of the exchange rate and potentially a hard Brexit when import duties of 10% plus are likely.

    For whatever reason this is where are Government are taking us on the basis of a corrupted ( says High Court Judge) referendum in 2016.

    Not daring to express an opinion just answering the question.

    If you get rid of the side sticker and get some blacked out alloys it will look better. Also I quite like the seats in it.:thumbs up:

    Watched that earlier, almost £8k. That's laughably overpriced. Seems an unrealistic amount of money for a bodykit and wheels on a car that costs about £36k.

    The 150 bhp A3 in question was a Vorsprung Model with over £10k of options fitted thats why the price.....was £41k nowt to do anything else as with most cars you can go into silly price realms when it comes to options

    I don't think you quite managed the goal of your first statement with that second statement! "Corrupted referendum" as a factual comment?!! Lol the biggest democratic vote the country has ever had and because you don't like the result it's corrupted!

    High Court Judge said it was corrupted- fact. Check it out. Here it is ...
    A court has ruled that the 2016 EU referendum should be voided because of criminal activity by the Brexit campaign. – Only it can’t be because of this loophole: it wasn’t a binding referendum.

    Yet Theresa May is still treating it as legally binding.

    You couldn’t make it up.


    Barrister Jessica Simor took May’s government to court for proceeding with Brexit on the basis that the referendum was lawful, despite their full knowledge of the illegal behaviour of the campaign to leave the EU.

    I rely on fact rather than spin...


    I have had 2 S3 ... one 2014. £35k second 2018 £42k ...similar spec

    Not quite sure why the need for such rudeness? However it is a fact that a devalued U.K. £ against the Euro (circa 30%) is one of the reasons for high prices .

    Can’t you go join a politics / Brexit forum? That way you’ll be among like minded people and leave the car chat to people who want to chat about................. cars.

    The wheels alone are £3k, that's almost 10% of the value of the car.

    The OP was asking why cars are getting so expensive. I gave a response based on facts and the economics which explains the situation to a large degree. Audi have supported the U.K. market hugely but we are now seeing significant car price inflation which will probably increase in 2021 due to tariffs and delays. Check it out. Dealers are now advising buyers that there are no guarantees of prices after 31 December.

    There was mention of the price being more than the previous model, it happens all the time.
    Stop using this Forum to ram politics down people’s throats.

    If people aren’t happy paying the price for the new car then they won’t buy it.

    How is quoting economic facts in answer to the OP s question a problem. Opinions are fine but I have only stated fact and not a political opinion. Check it out and Get a grip.

    The OP is regarding the 2021 A3

    This is a car forum, not The economist.

    True but nothing wrong in discussing the price of cars and reasons why they may be increasing.

    Rising prices yes, but not politics at every opportunity, he is doing it all the time and it’s becoming tedious.

    @jassyo06 - Thats an Allegro!
    Shame on your car spotting skills lol

    Maestro here -

    [​IMG]

    & BL wonder why they went bust with these beauties lol

    PS I had an Allegro for a short period of time - a 1750 SSS version with twin webers - went like stink (well it felt like it in the day)
    When my insurance came up for renewal I couldn't get insured for it so it had to go - probs didn't help I was 18 at the time
    That square steering wheel was just plain weird lol
