      Maintenance is getting expensive for my existing A3, so I'm considering it. I went to the A3 Launch in Vancouver BC and really like the car, but having said that haven't test drove one yet.

      What about looking for a 3.2 Quattro A3 instead? from what I have read/ seen, they have good re-sale value and none of the oil consumption and carbon issues that we have with our turbo 2.0T's.

      2008 S Line Suspension

      For the 2008 A3 S Line, I know it comes with an upgraded sportier suspension. Is it the struts and springs that were different, or just the springs?
