      2012 A3 Quattro
      05-06-2012 04:44 AM #1
      I decided not to wait for the new A3 and stick to having one of the last A3 wagons the USA might ever see. So I sold my old A3 back in December 2011 and ordered a 2012 A3. Its been 6 months, but well worth the wait.

      Here is a pic of my last ride 2006 Audi A3 2.0T color murano green with Full S3 body kit and some other things




      here some pics of my new 2012 A3 Quattro Ti package ibis white














      Ok before you guys go off on a tangent here is my list of mods im going to do
      APR k04 TSI
      APR intake
      S3 intercooler
      Bilstien coilovers
      S3 breaks
      window tints

      I too traded my '06 for a new '12 in order to stay with a Sportback.

      However it turns out that the '13 A3 models will be the exact same offerings as '12:

      I'm curious - how do you compare the new vs the old? More the same than different? I can't remember how my car felt when it was new. I guess you'll definitely get another 6-8 years on it before it starts falling apart - couldn't say that about the '06.

      Cool color, is that Ivory?

      But seriously those perforated seats are pure sex.

      OGbeast has them in his new A3 and they look even better in person.

      here some more pics of the seats and interior. I noticed the air vents have silver with glass black and the new s-tronic shift knob is deferent as well











      i didn't get open sky becuase it adds more wieght to the car and i heard takes away from the head room and some times rattles, plus i like the fact there isnt to many none open sky Ibis A3's out there

      man i cant wait to start tuning it! the quattro makes a huge difference off the line i can allready feel the grip

      The shift knob looks great but it gets really hot when the sun shines on it. The older knob was leather-covered and stayed cool.

      Buy some alcantara and wrap them yourself? Shouldn't be too hard. Someone did theirs with red vinyl.
