Met up with a friend tonight

Have a friend who just took delivery of a A3 S-line. Snapped a couple quick photos. Sorry for the quality, I didn't bring my SLR with me tonight.

Nice cars. Does anybody else think those wheels on the A3 look a lot like the BMW Performance wheels for the 1er?

wow...the 1er makes the A3 look like a VW (no offense to VW...also a fine German auto...love those commercials haha) Seriously though, your 1er just stands out more...biased opinion of course...but it's true!

I like the A3 wheels and its interior is a little more aesthetic than BMWs, which I am use to at this point.

RS4's are AWESOME. The 19" wheels on RS4 look fantastic.

I like the 135i wheels much more then the A3 wheels. But they look good.

Something personal?! LOL. Yes, my 135i is on the way. I've had my tC for 3 years and the community/forum I tried to be part of started as a lot of open minded and helpful owners but has slowly but surely turned into the predictable. Makes me appreciate this forum even more. Reminds me of my VW Beetle days.
Sadly and ironically I was considering an A3(not an "S") before I got my tC. They were brand new at the time I believe.
After seeing these pictures I am so grateful I am getting into a 135i.

Your car looks deadly... not feelin' the A3 by comparison which is strange 'cause I used to think it looked great, especially in white!

I saw several Audi A5's and an S5 this week. A tremendously gorgeous car. Incredible.
