Anybody interested in the new A3?

I'm a sucker for a sporty 5-door, however, I don't think it will be making converts out of any 1er's

The current A3 looks like a facelift of the new one, minus the cool headlights. That car is a giant disappointment.

I like the look of the S3 Sportback. Other than the fact that it will no doubt be $5-6k overpriced, what is so disappointing?

Just my personal opinion on the looks... I was impressed with the A5 interior, this looks very plain jane

I wish they brought the S3 over. And they should have offered QUATTRO on the 2.0T model....stupid FWD.

I love the Audi/GTI steering wheel, with the flat bottom. However, their regular steering wheel is completely boring. I know Audi interiors are supposed to be very high quality, but they also seem to have more character than BMW, which can be kind of cold.

I'm all about an A4 wagon though. I'd like the S4, but a V8 just seems like overkill, maybe once they switch to the supercharged V6.
