Hey guys, from what I have seen and heard on this forum, these cars are awesome and they are very exclusive. I havent seem 1 over here in new england. I hope I have the first one. Cant think of what color to get, or to get the DSG or the 6 spd. I am dying to get rid of my old audi so I can step it up and join this very exclusive group. Shoot as many pics as you got. It will be much appreciated.!!

Cheers,
Dave L [hail] [a3] [hail]

I was feeling the same way, I understand the DSG is crazy, but I wont be racing this thing and I dont think I care to increase shifting speeds by .50ms or whatever it is, I love clutch driving, Just because. and I love to shift. Prob go 6spd, and that black is facken AWESOME. I have a black B5-A4 now and I think black is my fav color. Cleans up nice.. thanks man.

Well all of our pics have been posted, but we'll be taking more soon. And the DSG is sick, you have to drive it a few times to truly appreciate its potential.

So Meesh, did you already pick up one of Audi's iPod interface kits?

haha naw, i used my ice>link from my a4. the mount isnt the same one im worried about it peeling the interior, so im gonna have to fab my own, or wait for dension to make one for the a3.

yeah because my a4 had audi concert and i didnt bother optioning for premium sound because of that sole reason. do you know if audi is selling any sort of mount, or is it just a dock connector? and why are they doing this anyways, i thought they "never follow"

Not sure, last time I checked the dealer didn't have the info on it yet. I'll look into it again this week.

It's hard not to follow when there's $$$ to be had. [;)]

You have to really go see the car in real life though rather than pictures to compare.

Lava Grey is a pretty unique colour. Has a similar characteristic as Moro Blue able to change colours in the shades or with different lighting.

Violet is pretty nice too if you don't mind purple colour. *I heard the one here already got into an accident hahaha.. but I heard it's not the A3 driver's fault.*

DSG is nice if you live in a really trafficy area. let's you do the shifting manual style but if you're stuckin traffic you can just throw it in automatic and cruise.

Don't say that, the Misano Red is an amazing color. Don't go and get a white one now, or do something even sillier like repaint yours! [:p]

Red and White, both look incredible on the A3. Actually seen a bunch of black ones and they look good as well...I'd be rolling in an A3 if I was going to an Audi dealer these days.

In Denver, CO, A3's are all over the place. Saw one today with some nice wheels, and it was a older white guy in a suit driving it. Sweet.

Well info, what info you looking for???

Outside: white, votex bodykit, opensky, xenons, has what looks like an S-line badge on the rubstrips, which normally means it has S-line suspension, and it might even have the seats like mine, but not sure they are available in the US yet (in europe the S-line badge on the side means interior and suspension.) Front plate delete kit, and the audi "challenge" wheel, which is bbs ch in 18" with an audi centercap and different inscription on the wheel itself.

Hope that helps a bit...
