Impressive figures I have to say.. esp the weight  :shocked:
I do like the retro look of the rear.. but that front end is just too shouty for me  :undecided:
It just looks like an A5 with its nose smashed in.
Not a fan of those either  :sick:
I'm just not an Audi fan full stop. I think some of the designs are nice but it's some of the owners that put me off!!

Audi owners on my street have upgraded to GTDs and GTIs (when they can get them). They are nice people. Those who have kept their A3s, A4s, A5s look like the front of their cars. It's the dog master/mistress syndrome.  :evil:

Same here...sadly.
I sold my S3 when they became popular with those who like to enter the suburban best dressed driveway competition in their S-Lines.
Not for me, I'm afraid...

Saw this at Goodwood - looks even better in the flesh. Sadly my next car purchase is less glamorous - a diesel Passat estate for the wife :sad:

I'd love a 1M but just way too expensive and being honest a bit impractical, plus the new one series reminds me of the pigs from Angry Birds!

If they do that to the M then it's game over... :sick:

The next new S3 and RS3 maybe interesting or Golf RSI  :evil: I must get a go in an old friends RS3 when it arrives i think i will just fall in love with the 5pot warble all over again (mis-spent preteen years in forests listening to Audi S1s  :drool: and a father who always ran 5pot audis did not help either  :grin: )

Being as the same cars will be mentioned on here time and again, does anyone know for sure which model of the chassis will be replaced first?
The 'all new' A3 arrived last time first, followed by Golf and then Leon (I'm ignoring the Octavia deliberately as it's a Jetta), but in 2009 the A3 and Leon both had minor makeovers last time round with the Golf getting a much larger facelift making me wonder if the order of replacement will differ.

Who's going to win the best guess comp?
2020 GTI Clubsport
Prior to that a couple dozen other warmed over VWs

The new A3 is first in line for the MQB platform.

I bet the mk7 golf gets delayed the same as the mk6 did.
 :evil:



Just been looking at photos of other cars. Nothing excites me  :sad:

So went back to golf sites and was looking through photos from track days etc and spotted a mk2 and thought i like that. Guess im just old fashioned.

The more I think about it i think my next car will be a used Golf R, I expect to change in about 18 months.
