      Depends on where you live. According to Edmunds, if you live in North America, the answer is never. Hopefully Edmunds will be proven incorrect.

      The preview of the GTI in the paris auto show indicates that it will have a locking front differential. Will the A3 or S3 include such feature? I can't believe the S3 would not have such feature, especially given that the S3 is placed at a higher performance level than the GTI, and the A3 is at a higher price tier, so it would make no sense for it to have less features.

      There will be a performance package for the GTI and Golf R. I doubt the regular A3 will have this but I'm sure the S3 does.

      The shifts were so quick and smooth, I know for a fact even in my S4 I couldn't touch any aspect...and I can only imagine Audi made it that much better.

      The other issue is going for big power in the future, it's so much easier and cheaper getting a new clutch vs redoing the whole transmission...
      DSG is 'branded' S-Tronic by Audi. Its still a Direct-Shift Gearbox. I'm glad you like them but I rather shift my own gears regardless of how they perform.
