It was the A3 with the new look front grille.I had seen only the front and the front-right profile while it was comin down the pheonix flyover.But it was very close to the one in the pic.

"Porsche AG is not owned by VAG in any manner ....
VAG and Porsche AG collabrated on the Touareg/Cayenne project

And Dr Ferdinand Piech ex chairman of VW is one of the Porsche heirs (maternal side)"


Correct. Apologies on the incorrect ownership info.

I recently saw a white Audi A3 with Black roof. Looked a bit old though.
This was spotted near JJ flyover.

(sorry I couldn't find any other place to write,so updated this thread).

There was a news some months back that a hatchback from audi might be launched to compete on civic corolla and the octavia

It just might come with the new hatches like fiat 500, mini also coming.!

hey guys,

Have been wanting to post this for a long time..

I Had seen an audi hatchback (Was pretty big for a hatchback) a few weeks back near pizzeria at Marine Drive. She was standing at the signal and by the time my phone was out, the signal turned green n she was zoomin away...

Had just managed to get a quick glimpse and could get a shot only of the side view...Have a pic of it too.

Btw it was white in colour.

Mods - My pic exceeds the 500kb limit, so how do i post the image.

Quoting an article "Expected delivery dates to dealers are late Summer 2008 for Europe, and early 2009 in North America as a 2009 year model. Future powertrain options for the USA market have yet to be announced"

Yes the No. plate were something different. I think it started with something like "NV".
The car looked big. Enough to swallow a dezire that was rolling next to it.
Really HUGE.

By the way have they chosen it to be the next model to be launched?

the A3 is quite big ...... for a hatchback ..... the white car is a S-line and has a panoramic roof and a really high end audio system ....

cant really say if audi is launching the A3 any time soon ... but the A3's are here for platform testing

Go to Photoshop and resize the image.


If dont have PS , then go to Image shack , upload the image and in size selected a smaller pic size and then save the image onto your comp after uploading .
Upload the new pic through Teambhp.
As Zimble as that !

It wasnt debaged, i could clearly see the big audi sign on the front grill. In fact, it was that very shiny sign that got me to notice the beauty.
