    This would be great for somebody wanting to buy, but does that size of cash discount not make a mockery of Audi's pricing? :openmouth:

    Lovely car but those tyres are skinny as hell.

    I think you picked the wrong word there because they are far from skinny!
    I know what you mean though. :D
    I had that diameter and profile of tyre on a previous car and the ride was surprisingly good. Thankfully I never had to buy replacements though. ;)

    more so ..... when you compare against that awesome TT above.

    Surely they will release some jazzy alloys / exclusive S paint colours / silver wing mirrors etc to differentiate the S from the S Line.

    l think the tyre's are 255/30/20 as the exact same size of of wheel and tyre size fitted to the TTS be/Vorsprung, TTRS sport edition,not to my taste being black and extremely difficult to clean but the sole purpose of Audi fitting such a size of wheel on a BE is for aesthetics and they do make the car look far more attractive,the TT has massive wheel wells even 19's look a little lost in them as l can recall when l had the TTRS roadster in pauper spec for a few hours back in 2017

    What a pile of poo that article read, stating the S3 having 300 ps when its been stated it will will have 335 ps it also stated the S3 will have wider wheel arches,the new version of the engine to be fitted in the Golf R and the S3 has ALREADY been fitted into the new Arteon R with just 320 bhp,besides a S-LINE car has always had the same exterior styling barring the number of exhaust ports as an S model,same goes with a A class AMG - line car almost identical to a AMG 35

    Looks odd at first but give it some time and it will grow on you. Audi cannot afford to fail with the most beautiful hatch on the market since the release of 8L in my opinion

    The fake air vents on the back and the huge honey comb on the grill makes it look super cheap... Similar to a Hyundai

    Can also see that there's no trimming on the pillars in the inside of the windows, so the paint comes through. Cost saving by Audi and looks bad

    Looks pretty good other than those things

    I like the rear other than the plastic vents, a better choice of wheels is needed with this colour.

    Really not sure about the front, there’s just too much plastic on the grill and vents.

    Yep have to agree with you. The more I see pics of it the more I like it...Whether I will be able to get one is another thing. If I had the finances then it would certainly be on my list. Wouldn't pick the blue colour though. I would go with a nice conservative colour like Daytona. It would show off the new curves just a treat:thumbs up:

    It's not that bad. My 2018 TTS has 20 inch rims. Yes the (mag)ride was firm, but I ran in Dynamic all of the time and I didn't find it uncomfortable - plenty seem to given the forums I'm on, some passengers thought it was too hard. I think I might be weird :D

    As to tyre noise on the TTS, most of the time there was nothing over and above anything else I've got/driven. The one quirk was the noise was much more pronounced when the roads were really wet. Might have just been the PZeros it was fitted with .If I'd have kept it, I would have chucked PS4s on.

    Turbo Blue looks awful in direct sunlight as with all flat painted cars mate.Daytona or Floret certainly would show off the lines far far better...actually l should take Audi to court for breach of copyright trying to copy Voodoo Blue...scumbags lol

    Click bait to get people onto their page, and to sell magazines.

    Regurgitate information they aren't sure about, or haven't bothered to update due to lack of journalism

    Glad i have my deposit down for a build slot, a month ago tomorrow
    I like that, if of course it does end up anything like this
    Black or carbon pack would suit better on the 444hp which i would go for
    I'm in regardless
    anybody want to hazard a guess on pricing
    I got tops 60K to spend

    Finally managed to see a new A3 in the metal.. personally looks a lot better in real life, though only a mid spec sline I thought the interior was good.. can see how it would look great in higher spec and performance versions... not sold on the wired dash top stitching, would be ok if was leather wrapped dash though..

    This was in classic Daytona..[​IMG]

    Main cockpit screen looks quite small ... is that just the photo ?

    Did it look ok in real life ?

    Maybe its because of the fixed clusters at the side

    Looks much better in a darker colour, front and side profiles are good but that rear bumper is too fussy for me.

    Still not a fan of the dash layout, don’t think it will age at all well.

    It had the basic smaller VC screen, so yeh was a little smaller..

    The dash board is much more driver focused in my opinion, felt more wraparound cockpit like..
