#13014 of 16984 New car to enter the Elpps ?

Now we all know how I feel about this category - just because you have a brand does not get you entry to this group- many disagree- hosts have no solid answer why certain cars are here- but since BMW, the standard is ditching its work horse 6 for a better 4- let's throw this car into the mix a well-http://autos.yahoo.com/newcars/future_cars/audi_a3_2013.html
Yep new a4- rocking the turbo 4- lets make some room and finally delete the tsx from this forum - why 2 acuras, with combined sales of a housing suburb.

I don't always (often?) agree with you Sweeny, but that is one gorgeous sedan! And of course it belongs here - it's a sedan from a luxury brand, and it's drop-dead sexy.
Now BMW needs a four door 1-series to compete.
A3 is the new A4
1-series is the new 3-series

If the new a3 is the new a4- And the 1 series is the new 3 series- I can't wait to see the new g series as it should take advantage of both as they move up.
So happy you also Agree that the tsx should also be moved into the accord and sonata forum. Nice -happy times !

We mentioned this before but Better Mpgs and Power - pretty simple if you ask me. - I don't know the weight but guess its lighter as well.

That is one sharp looking sedan. Give it to me with Quattro, Diesel, & Hydraulic Power Steering and maybe I'll look for an excuse to ditch my TSX:)

Sweeny that doesn't make the car better, according to all of the experts the best 5 series was the E39. It was better in the handling department, and overall design. I guess when it comes to better you have higher Priorities then others.
I have to say, the new 2012 BMW 550i is a watered down M5 has caught my eye, but the styling isn't what I would call stunning...

Not talking about a whole car here-
Mpgs and power and lighter has nothing l do with my taste _ it's what BMW and the world is doing to fight higher costs of fuel- and govt mandates

With the evolution of each generation of car, the series gets bigger. Now your E30 is just a tad bigger then the 1 series, and now with the new 1 series coming out, I'm sure it will be the same size or slightly bigger. Now the A3 is growing into what the A4 was when it first hit the shores and the A4 is growing in the perfect size sedan (IMHO).
So when does these cars stop being entry level luxury cars?
