    A3?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Coming from the B7 world, thinking about getting a 2015 2.0 Quattro. Are they good cars? Anything to look out for. What’s the difference between the Sline and non sline for y’all? And do they have paddle shifters?

    You are asking this in the A3 forum, so of course we are (mostly) going to say they are good cars.
    The S-Line is a cosmetic package, which includes the Sports suspension.
    Sports Package cars come with the paddle shifters and Sports seats, and of course the Sports suspension as well. Google will tell you everything you need to know about the different packages.

    Let me say that I absolutely love my A3. I leased it as just to get back and forth to work but now I really LOVE IT!!! I actually wish I got an Sline or an actual S3 but either way its a great car.......

    Previous car was a b7 a4 as well.

    I will not second this. I resent buying my 2017 A3 due to continuous small problems that plague it. First defective starts top system, then inoperative door handle lock sensors then mmi and virtual cockpit just shutting down while driving and latest is a horrible rattle coming from transmission. The start stop was fixed. The door handles were tricky as it happened only when car was parked outside when it was below 32F, but fixed. The mmi issue still happens and since it doesn't happen all the time, dealer can't replicate issue so for them it's like it doesn't exist cince no fault codes are stored. I have a video of the trans rattle and I have sent it to my service adviser and it has been 4 days and he still claims the tech is reviewing the video. I wish I could just return this car. One thing for sure, this is my first and last Audi. I can post the rattle on YouTube if anyone is interested.

    Maybe I'm just the unlucky one. Good luck.

    Every car has issues but from someone that works at audi and vw before that, the A3 is actually pretty solid and does not usually give problems.

    Just watch out for a possible Haldex issue when launching if you notice excessive wheel spin. This seems to be an issue with early revisions, 2015 etc.. Otherwise the Quattro is a great car! I wish I would have picked up an S-Line. The bumpers and side skirts alone are worth it! Gives it a more aggressive S3 look.

    Like my A3, but it makes me sad sometimes when I go to merge into traffic. Then I just remind my self the TTRS is sitting at the house waiting on me to rip on it lol.
