I just found this.  If the A3 ever comes in quattro clothes, I will buy it and make this puppy...

Awww gawd say it isn't so...The humanity of it all.  The 2.0 has to get the quattro.  Pat told me it was just the way it was, but I can't believe this could happen!  

I just may have to get an R32 for my next car, but I don't know.  I know I have to have quattro or AWD somehow.

I want to wait for the S3.  hopefully it will make it to this side of the pond.

in the mean time, this is the A3 I like;

No idea - I'm happy with the 3.2 quattro though. Now, to see if I can squeeze $30k out of my couch cushions....

I can't do the four-door thing so i converted mine to a two door and while i had it in my "Photoshop Bodyshop" i decided to shave the side strips, shave the side markers and blend the front bumpers and sideskirts.

no plans for the A3 2.0T quattro, only the V6 will get quattro.

The redesigned TT will follow suit too, unfortunately.  
I'm guessing Audi is trying to sell more V6's that way.

I couldn't post it, but it was black, tinted, raised a little from all the way down...ottinger everything (except ABT rear and grille)- badges, NO spoiler (I want one off the roof), tinted everything, Xenons- no lids and a carbon center.

I was at the dealer yesterday, they had an A3 3.2Q DSG S-line for $39K I think.  Kind of a lot for a small car like that, but it's pretty cool.

I wonder how the FWD 2.0T M6 would compare to the 3.2Q DSG at this altitude in terms of quickness?

Think I saw it too. In the show room, right?

Nice looking little car. I like the lines on the interior.

Nice rides.  Andy, you just had to go and do more didn't ya?

they all look good.  Too bad the configurator doesn't let you do more.  That's probably exactly what Andy was thinking...

I have to agree that $39K seems like a lot for that car.  Why not just get an R32 and slap a turbo on it for that price?

Yeah, seems like they got the idea from:

http://www.dubmodder.com

Which has a lot more options per car, but only covers the mk1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Edit: and now the Corrado.
