Does anybody know when the new shape S3 is being released / and available in Australia.

I cannot find any news regarding it at all, Are they even making one ???
Audi dont even seem to know when its coming as yet.

Tossing up between New S3 or VW R32 .. in the coming months when the lease is on on the S3 is up.. After all my issues with my S3 I am leaning towards the R32.

You might as well get an R32 while you can, when the lease is up on that there might be a new S3 around :P

TT 3.2 & A3 3.2 will be out this year, search Audi Sport for S3/RS3 news...

They are coming, but are quite a while off

A couple of weeks ago I made some enquiries at Sydney Audi about the new A3 3.2 Quattro. Price is to be over 80k!!

Doesn't leave much scope for reasonable pricing on the higher spec S3..

Does put my concerns to rest about my S3 coping a big resale depreciation due to being superseded by a new model priced around 70k...

Raises the question of is there room in the range for the S3 because of this pricing?

the A3 Quattro is far enough away, and the new S3 isn't even firm yet, let alone released anywhere... :)

unfortunately, from some of the reviews i've read, the 3.2 quattro a3 is a bit of a stodgy performer. Particularly in handling and suspension. I guess you could change this though with aftermarket stuff.

At the Melbourne Motor Show I was told the "price" (list, I guess) for a V6Q A3 was AUD$75300. I suspect that will change before the relase late this year though. Here's hoping it goes down :p

It will at least need coilovers to be a little bit fun.

And then it may look something like this:
