Default Audi A3 3 door facelift

Hey everyone! First time posting!!
I read somewhere that Audi will start producing the the facelifted 3 door model in week 17 of this production year (with sales beginning in August) and that both the nose and the taillights are getting a facelift. Can any one confirm this and when will we see the new model (ie press release?) BTW found this site http://www.audi4ever.at/tb/index.php?id=38 . It has lots of images of owner's A3's and other audis also. What is most interesting though is what one owner has done with his 3 door A3... maybe a glimse of the future???....check it out! => http://www.audi4ever.at/tb/aut...ype=2 HINT: look at the front shots!

Default Audi A3 Facelift

This is the facelifted Audi A3:


The improvements:
-The chassis is more comfortable now
-An S-line exterieur package is offered for the first time, appealing to a more sporty oriented driver
-The safety equipment is updated with a new system integrated in ESP. The system stabilizes the steering in critical situations and assists the driver
-New steering wheels
-New exterieur and interieur colours
-New rims

I love that grille so much! It looks great on the A3, and with the headlights it looks realli agressive!

the front of this A3 just looks too heavy. I've never been a fan of the monster snout, but this iteration, while one of it's best, is just too overpowering for the car. It pulls the car down in the front ..

apart from that, what else is different on this car? maybe I'm being a bit slow, but I can't pick up any other changes

These are the only 3 photos released by Audi.

On the 2nd photo, the rear lights look the same, though.

There is no "US-spec A3" on sale as of now. The TT and the A4 are the smallest cars Audi sells in the US.

On sale this Spring. Close enough. They have prices up and everything. Starting at $25,460. http://www.audiusa.com/a3

But if you insist "this is the same-spec A3 which will come to the U.S., right?"

Sheesh.

look closely, it's a bit different...

a3 first time in the us, while it's been years since a3 in europe

btw...the audiusa website is funny: "Attention: If you have any information regarding the location of a 2006 A3 with VIN WAUZZZ8P65A045963" That's just great!
