The S-line is getting different taillights? That's new isn't it?

Looks like an Audi

They're also putting the LEDs wherever they can though aren't they haha...

Safe design, but I like it.

The non-S Audi is a downgrade imo. The S-line is much better though, but still way, way too similar to the outgoing A3.

Damnit Audi, make something original please.

I think the stock A3 looks more girly at the front now. The headlights look a little too "rounded". Yep it's a downgrade.

The S3 looks a lot better. Protrusions on front bumper look great for S model. Wheels are also much much better. The bad thing is we are going to see them on the next S4 and we see them already on the new S8

I wish Audi wouldnt use the same wheels all the time. I prefer one wheel to one car...anyway, not bad for a facelift, but the stock A3 really suffers on the exterior now!

EDIT:

Infact I take that back. The front does look a little girly, but it's suprisingly cleaner when you look at the fussy, boring front of the A3 at the moment! So yeah overall well done Audi.

Personally think the facelift really helped it out.

I really like the S3.

IMO, the 2-door A3 needs to keep the taillights from the 4-door. Otherwise it looks a bit narrow from the rear.

any pics of the non-S 4 door A3s? i really like the current a3.

it also seems like the 2 door has different taillights than the 4 door, which is good cause the tails for the 2 door arent as good looking.

S3 looks pretty good. All the new front ends look very very similar!

No pics yet. I'll you guys up to date though.

It's funny because I think the sportback rear-lights look weak in real-life! I prefer the chunky look of the 3 door lights, even though it looks a little boring!

These new S3 taillights are probably my favorite Audi taillights atm. They really widen the look of the car.
