Have you guys been spotting enough Q3's where you live? I've heard some people saying that although they're on the road a lot they haven't been seeing enough of these around.

I haven't see a great deal of them. It seems to me that people may choose to go with full loaded mainstream models (Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, Honda, etc...) or have enough for higher end luxury models. There are less that choose this model that is kind of in between.

Maybe I am at work too much or something but I have yet to see another out on the road.... Honest I do get out and about, I see a good amount of Q5's but to date no Q3's...:)

p.s. Thats fine with me!!!

When I first brought home my Mini Cooper S in August 2005 it was really cool - I could go for weeks without seeing another Mini as I drove to work and around town. Now there are 5 Mini's just in our employee parking lot and I can't drive a mile or two on the road without seeing a few pass the other direction. I suspect I'll see fewer 2016 Q3's....

I've been seeing less and less Mini Coopers and that's due to some of the issues they've been having. They are problematic enough that its sending people away from them while its still worth on the used car market and onto something they can actually depend on.

Salem, MA here...

I don't see many on the road ...I find the Q3 is very rare.

Is everyone enjoying the Q3 as much as me?

Good for you! Great to be rare.
Total units sold in the US are comparable to the A5 in 2015 but have increased 6x over 2014's YTD totals.

So while I think you will be seeing more & more on the road as imports & incentives ramp up & word gets out what a fine option the Q3 is, ~11K units over a 1.5 year period still makes the Q3 a rare sighting.

Kind of reminds me when we bought our Merc GLK in 2011 at the end of its 3rd year of US sales & volume was about 20K per in each of those years.
But even at 60K units on the road, we didn't see but one or two a week at most in my town (I am sure more in the bigger metro areas).

Now with 165K sold in the US, I see one every day.

The GLK is a common sighting here in the Pacific Northwest, but my wife and I still have only seen one Q3, and that was last January and it was the car that made us turn our focus toward buying our 2016 Q3.

Even more common than the GLK in these parts are the Q5 and Q7....but it was that only sighting of a Q3 that got us excited about owning another Audi, and it turned out to be the reason we bought another car.....even though the one we had was perfectly fine.

Want won out over need, again....:rolleyes:

That's what i've noticed, actually have seen more S3's/A3's which is a great thing since it's the brands volume product and clearly it's getting that volume.

MA here too...... I've probably seen a handful in the past 6 months. Every once in a while. I've had a few people either follow me or come over to me in a parking lot to ask about it...

Northern New Jersey -- same here -- in the last 6 weeks since owning, I've seen about 6 Q3s in all. In fact so many have thought I had a Q5. When I point out it's the Q3 they are surprised as the sizing looks similar. Audi did a good job at not making the Q3 noticeably smaller than the Q5 -- of course that could be viewed in different ways.

Curious though, as the Summer is 6 months from now, it'd be nice to have a Q3 meet somewhere in the Northeast. Anyone up to organizing or has anyone organized one yet? Perhaps it can be an extension to an existing Audi Tri-State or New England meet.
