The Illest A3

Ill Photography x Illinois. I spotted a photo of this A3 in the snow about a year ago. Not much has changed but its still one of the sweetest A3s around. Bagged, yes. Photos from AJ of Risky Devils.

    I’ve been contemplating trading in the WRX for an A3. I think this might have just helped with that decision

    This gives me a whole new respect for wagons.

        then WTF would you call it then? a pickup?

          Its actually considered a hot hatch WildBill. The reason is the A3 is built on the same frame as the GTI. So its like the five door Golf’s.

            If you want to get “technical”, it’s a SportBack.
            It’s the “wagon” variant of the regular A3 hatch, characterised by it’s differently designed rear lights and slightly increased length.

        Why does a low car have to be static to be cool?

          It is static; it’s not moving.
