Trouble is as well, with all these opf filters all sports cars coming out from now on will sound like a 1.0 micra. Completely ruins the experience of owning one for me.

It was the best looking out of the 3 variants.

The saloon was missing the fake vent at the side of the front bumper which always baffled me - personally I think its a nice touch and looks less "ultra" or "SE" which is why the saloon never appealed to me

Nope,well ok maybe but the rear arches totally ruin it imo

If they had of sorted out the arches and give it a more aggressive look it would have been perfect, I think the car proportionally was spot on, much better than the S4.

Was that not the same for all s3 facelift? They got a revised front bumper?

Not 100% sure about the saloon but in general the main exterior changes for the FL where:

  • Front lights
  • Front Bumper and Grill
  • Wheels
  • Rear Lights
  • Rear Diffuser

S3 saloon has slightly wider front arches also than hatch & sportback? So not even a case sticking a hatch front bumper on a saloon 👎

More I look at the saloons more I think they have potential apart from the stupid inset arches 🙈 why o why did audi do it
