Does anyone know if the black styling package for the front grate and the trim around the windows will be available in the US? It's not available in the new car build for audi usa and I didn't see it on the order form.
It's available on other country's configurators, such as Australia.
Anyone have any idea? I think the car looks so much better with the black styling.
If it looks like the black styling pkg I have seen, the grate (I guess that would be grille in the US) material looks like high-sheen plastic, whereas the chrome looks more like metal.
Depending on the body color I would could go with either option. To me the black styling pkg is too much of a contrast with colors like White or Silver, but I think on a medium-dark color (Gray, Red, Blue or Black) it would look good, if you prefer the blacked-out look.
Is the ASpec S3 going to have the black paint around the sunroof in the front half of the roof like in the A3?
Although its not shown in the S3 pic or the S3 video here, but I think that's because its the European A3/S3 displayed which does not have the pan-moonroof. Where moonroof was marketed as a standard feature to the A3/S3 here in the US.
Other things I noticed about the European A3/S3 is the headlights don't have that orange tip on the end, its white.
The European A3s have fog lights.
The D-shape sport wheel is offered up in A3 models with the S-line.
In contrast, the Indian market that just got the A3 has got it the worse. They don't get the round sport wheel that standard here in the US, they get the older A4 style wheel, and their seats don't appear to be complete leather, and their dash has plastic trim instead of the aluminum.
