I drive an Audi A3 tomorrow

I'm taking a Zipcar A3 Sportback up to Sonoma tomorrow. In America, we only get the five-door wagon. I'm hoping it's a diesel, but I'm not holding my breath. Also, this will be my first Audi. This Motorweek video confirms that the rear luggage area has a cover.

I bet you'll end up in a 2.0T with an automatic. Not too bad for a FWD car - world's nicest 5-door Golf.

Pretty much the only penalty box in the Audi line is the A4 CVT. That car sucks.

@Walter: Winner winner chicken dinner. It is indeed a 2.0T with an auto.

And it's arguably one of the best autos in the's VW's dual clutch transmission, so it's really more of an automatically shifting manual. Hope you tried manually downshifting; it fires off the most perfect rev-matched downshifts!
