kinda looks like a classy Civic hatch.

I wish we got A3's here

Looks pretty decent to me. Reminds me of something along the lines of a 318Ti from BMW.

soon, my friend.

I believe 2004.

Looks good. However, the golf looks good and serves it purposes well too. What kinda power will the a3 have?

masestylez
Will they offer a quattro model of the A3 over here? That'd be a fun little rally goer.

Yeah, and Audi NEEDS to get back into rallying at the WRC level. What good is quatto without proving it (again) at that level?

The A3 looks like a good candidate since the compact 2 doors are dominant right now.

yeah they do, and this car looks like it would be a great platform for them to do so, to bad so many audi's are so damn heavy

I beleive there will be a new team for 2004 or 2005, and it hasn't been announced yet. I'm keepin zie fingers crossed for Audi or Mazda(yeah right).

i like it. nicer than the current A3. is the 3.2 V6 going to be the S3?

SLP Addict
I like it, Oh and look, our friendly lil bot is back.

masestylez
I think it will be the S3, that would be badass.

silverTA2002
So the S3 will be kinda like the R32 Golf?

Too bad the thing is probably going to be the most expensive sports compact around, and not the fastest.

I like the looks of a TT better. But of course I don't like the price and performance of a TT.

Too light isnt good either; not for Rally.
Anyways, the cars looks cool, despite the tail lights.
The only thing i dont like in this new AUDI S trend is the lack of Turbo Engines

S3 V6 NA
S4 V8 NA
S6 V12 NA????? :D Well this could be nice... :drive:
