Stopped by the local Audi dealer tonight, and the first 2016 Q3's have hit the lots. I guess they'll be sitting there until the distribution hold is lifted. This one was as plain vanilla as they get, with an MSRP of $35.2K including destination. Only a few small options including floormats, homelink, and an $85 lightning cable for the MMI. I'm OK with the bigger (some might say pimped-out) grille, but not a fan of the base model headlights at all. They looked way too cluttered and a step backwards IMO.

Hi Roger, Knoxville TN, Harper Audi. (I've bought two cars from Harper dealerships, so I've been prowling their lots for years!) :nerd:

Wow! Nice. So I have a question on the rear bumper. All the pictures I've seen have a black strip across the lower rear bumper (which I don't like). Your photos show a seamless painted bumper. Is there a model difference between the two? LOVE the solid white.

The car in his pictures is a Premium Plus, also reflected in the price. The Prestige has different front and rear bumpers and different head and tail lights. A form for class discrimination, I suppose. Bring up two Audi configurations side by side, you'll see.

Thanks - my dealer Audi Greenville - got theirs last night. I've been over looking 'em over this morning... They have 1 unsold as of right now.:eek:
Also talked with sales, it appears they're loose to deliver.

The dealer here in Chantilly VA has one on their showroom floor. Prestige (s line standard on prestige, with the nicer headlights, slightly bigger front bumper grills than the PP, and grill across the rear bumper), also in white. There are some slight changes to the metal trimming around buttons on the dash (which in some places I think is a little over-designed), but other than that and the bumpers it seems to be identical to 2015's. I have to say, as a personal opinion, I prefer the front end, headlights, and dash on the 2015's, but prefer the side skirts and rear bumper of the 2016's. And I know the new headlights are "all weather" but I miss the fogs in the bumper on the 2016's, they look a little barren to me without them.
