Thanks for posting that, good for now while we wait for more reviews to come our way.
Another thing to be on the look out for are comparisons.

Nice - keep in mind also, that BOTH cars used for the front and rear bumper comparisons are S-line variants, which we will prolly see here (NAR) but so far have not ... I feel that may the difference in steering wheel design noted too -

Inside we'll (NAR) be getting HomeLink and a manually folding (like the ROW) MMI screen as well -

Actually if all goes well, we'll have the homelink and folding MMI way before the 2015.5 or 2016's come out.

...if you mean "we" as in yourself, myself and a few others, yes >:D, but if you mean 'we' as in regular production, I'd be a bit leery -

their 2015 review is up...

There’s not much that’s new about the 2015 Audi Q3. This small crossover has already been on sale in Europe for four years, and its platform and powertrain are shared with the aging Volkswagen Tiguan. But despite the Q3’s age, Audi’s timing is impeccable. This used to be the type of niche crossover that only made sense in Europe, but Audi is bringing the 2015 Q3 to the U.S. just in time to catch the oncoming wave of small luxury crossovers such as the Mercedes-Benz GLA and Lexus NX.
The Q3 quickly found success here in the second half of 2014; more than 3,000 buyers snagged the first Q3s to hit American dealerships in spite of a quiet rollout without much advertising or fanfare. Are these buyers on to something, or is the Q3 just a temporary placeholder until Audi comes up with something new for this hot segment?

Gotta love the commentary over there. I particularly enjoy the idea of a Focus being a better buy than the Q3. Hooray for the internet.

That said, a pretty good review overall.

The Orange car is not an S-line......its actually a bit of a hybrid as its the German market version, basically its an SE with HiD headlamps the front and rear bumpers are SE version.

Same as sitting on my drive ;) but mines the UK version of course.

Its a bit of a poor comparison article really.

I have been looking at the steering wheel in the new brochure and that also looks the same as the old S-line version.

You're correct - the facelift has a more aggressive standard front bumper LIKENED to the previous S-line versions, and the new car has moved the foglights integrated into the headlights, hence they look like they're missing. I'm not sure what the new S-line version will look like unless half-way to the RS, or perhaps Audi won't have such a variant anymore, now that they offer a 'sports' package for interior upgrades, mainly the seats...

Btw, can we have a pic of your car?

S-line 2015 FL is on the Audi UK site witha downloadable brochure.

So your FL only comes in the SE version over there?

When the weather here gets a bit better and I can be bothered to clean the car, it was cleaned by the dealer when I picked it up just before Christmas and not touched since :eek:

Not sure yet, but I think we will get an S-line option - just that we did NOT for the first year, NO TDI either - but I think the 2.0 will come ... also, I didn't realize the difference between the SE and S-line is so subtle with the FL, as it's much more noticeable with the old version -

btw, for others, here's a link to the brochure : http://www.audi.co.uk/content/dam/audi/production/PDF/PriceAndSpecGuides/q3.pdf

Off topic, but my dealer offers free car washes every Saturday. Anyone else have this special benefit?

Mine offered me to drive thru their touchless anytime I want to - have done it perhaps a few hundred times since 2009 ...

Bugger it, you chaps over there actually get good service from your dealers, over here you would think everytime a salesman gives something away he gets a toe chopped off by his manager, they are so tight!

Maybe you should drive a touch slower!;) Further, they top up the windshield washer fluid any time you enter the service area. Oh, and you get open access to the espresso bar while they wash your car. Free water bottles any time as well.
