Thanks! the stock ones are actually pretty good and bigger than the GTI DSG's, but we'll see how the aftermarket ones go.

Watching!
haha, its really more of an illusion of being bigger due to the design. I'm pretty sure it actually has less space in some areas. My main thing was AWD, DSG, the open sky package (rear panoramic skylight dealie), and the "luxury" feel/look of the Audi... and the LED DRLs, haha.

Does the 2.0t have the variable timing or is it the same as the TSI engine?
It never really crossed my mind much either honestly. I believe its the same exact TSI engine - not sure on the variable timing. *yep, looks like it is. The A4 has the variable timing/valve lift.

I too would love to do this in a couple years *sub'd*

How does the A3 drive compared to the GTI? I test drive an old b6(?) a4 and the steering was really loose like a merc at lower speeds. And what about the ride quality "NVH"? Give us a review!

I'm really interested in this when my $ situation changes.

*jealous face*

Nice upgrade! I wish the A3 came in a 2 door in the US. I wouldn't have even looked at the GTI at that point!

Nice buy, I was torn between this and the GTI I ended up picking up obviously. GTI won for price but I really enjoy the ride of the A3 and the AWD will be amazing with the K04 setup.

no kidding, I found an 09 with 17k miles around me for 25k and almost traded in my car for one except they lowballed me on the trade in and their finance didn't make sense.

My local Audi dealer wanted 40k for theirs. It was a fully loaded one though but still that pricing is insane. Oh and it was used BTW

I will most likely go this route next year. If the Euro stays where it's at I am doing European delivery.
