    Going to the store today, I encountered an Audi A3 with Illinios plates on it. Is this car coming stateside? Does anyone know what these would/do retail for? It seems like a pretty cool little hatch.

    I saw an s3 today here in San Diego.... had Mexico City (DF MEX) Plates on it :hs:

    NICE car.... I like I like....:bigthumb:

    I didn't have my cell phone (camera) w/ me but I would have loved to have taken photos.

    I should head to Tijuana, Mex and poke around the VW/Audi dealer there.

    I like the A3/S3. I would consider as a commuter car.

    The A3 Sportback is coming...the five-door. No plans on the 3-door as of yet.

    VAG will not lose money on the A3/S3/RS3 project. Bottom line.

    I have a 5-door A3 back in Thailand, and my Bro has a 3 door 1.8T and they are amazing cars.. THe S3 is quite orgasmic and the new A3 is stunning.. my fav hatchs evar.
     
  11. There are a few here in the states already. 1 in California at the Audi Design School, 1 in Florida ... imported as a track only car, and 1 in Washington imported by an employee of H&R Special Springs and later sold to a gentlemen in the area. I had an opportunity to drive the H&R A3 back in the day when I was working at a VW/Audio Tuner up North and it was incredible!

    I love the look of the three door, but not so much the 5.

    Third Time’s a Charm: Audi believes its A3 will fly where others failed



    At about $25,000 the five-door A3 will be the least expensive Audi in the States when it goes on sale next spring. The plan is familiar and not terribly complicated: Attract new, younger buyers with a high-value price leader, spread the customer base, satisfy dealers with more volume, and help ensure the future by propagating lots of little A8 buyers along the way. 2006 AUDI A3 PHOTO GALLERY | TALK ABOUT, READ COMMENTS ABOUT THE AUDI A3 | LATEST NEWS
