I didn't know Audi was planning an A3 diesel until I stumbled across it on their website. Pretty interesting idea, hopefully its not priced above the A3 3.2.

+1 I love this idea.

Just as cargasmic

I'd be less inclined towards the Mini because of the decreased practicality, and the reliability. I won't say an Audi is more reliable though, because that'd probably make me an idiot. :P

Sitting next to a new A4, the A3 looks a bit outdated. It's no surprise as it's been around since 2003 (in Europe). The styling is more straight-cut and boxy while the new A4 has some curves and is super sexy (I want one). I wonder when the A3 FMC is due, should be soon.

The A3 has a transversely mounted engine as opposed to an A4's longitudinal engine. The longitudinal engines have quattro with a 40/60 (f/r) biased AWD. Just a little fun fact. Not sure what the bias is on the A3 but it's probably more front biased than rear. I wonder if they will switch the A3 over or if they'll keep it transverse.

Damn I need to make more money so I can buy a new loaded 2.0 6-speed A4, and spend less time screwing off on the Internet!

You guys only get the A3 Sportback in the US?

I think there's an Autoblog(?) article where BMW people state that there will be no current MINI diesel models (Cooper D and the new One D) sold in the US.
