Audi released pics of the A3 2door and the S3 Sportback. However, they didnt release pics of the A3 Sportback and the S3 2door.

The website is quite stupid because it posted OLD pics and NEW pics but heres all the sketches to prove what I'm saying.

1. A3 2door
2. A3 Sportback
3. S3 2door
4. S3 sportback

oh, forgot to ask. in general are the S3 sportback's aprons and skirts compatible with the regular A3 sportback? just curious. I know they usually have sline for the non S's...

that's probably because those tail lights look completely ripped off from the e92.

very true. but the newer version's tails look like a carbon copy of the 335i. although it does look like BMW ripped off the 8P tail lights in the first place.

point is both tails on both cars look the exact same.

HKZ786,

When is this S3 version of it coming out?

They seem to in these pictures, but I think they look a little more different in real life.

I love the way the A3 looks.

I also love the A3 cab too.
