      Very neat stuff, George. Any word from AoA on the timeline for the new A3?

      No official word though I suspect it will show before year's end. Bad news for USA though is that we'll be getting the current A3 the longest. This could be both good or bad news depending on how you look at it and I'll be outlining more of that next week in a road test we're planning to publish then.
