Audi has a diesel plan for the US, they just aren't ready to provide details. Take a look at the interview with an Audi VP at audiworld.com The second part of the interview in on Audi's diesel plans in the US
There have been reports of diesel options on the TT and Q7. Something is headed our way, just don't know what and on which models it will be offerred first. The continual rise of gas prices can only encourage Audi to go forward with their plans
#4 of 10 I didn't find the diesel article...

but audiworld.com did have this to say about the A3;
"[for June, 2007], The Audi A3 recorded 665 sales in the U.S. , with most sales coming from the all-important Southern California market."
Wonder what the model mix was (2.0 .vs. 3.2)?

It's right there. Click on audiworld.com and look! The site talk about an interview with some Audi VP on Audi's US Diesel Strategy

yes, it was right up at the very top of the site page, not within the news postings I saw and looked over on last visit. thanks!
I try to keep up on Audi info, given they are one of the more innovative auto companies these days. Unfortunately, no dealer is close at hand, and I am still waiting for A3 reliability info before deciding.
#7 of 10 Looking for good curvy twisty roads in So Cal

There are various mountain roads around San Diego, but if you want REAL thrills, take Decker Canyon road (route 23) from Pacific Coast Highway (the junction is west of Los Angeles but before Point Mugu) and drive up to Ojai. You will get bucket loads of hair-pin turns threading through various mountain ranges plus ascent and descent into several valleys.

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll be going up to Ventura in February and I'll probably be racing through that route 23 in my A3 Sport DSG 2.0T. Tell the CHP to take the month off in February.
Any other recommendations in Southern CA besides 23 for having a blast driving a car that handles like its on rails?
#10 of 10 more S.calif roads to try

Well, there is Pacific Coast Highway / Route 1 that goes along the ocean from LA up to Oxnard/Point Mugu. Also, Kanan Dune Road is another N-S road between Route 1 and the 101 freeway that snakes through various tunnels.
Meanwhile should you go over the grapevine / I-5 on way to points north, you can go north on route 33 instead which has lots of sweeping turns from somewhere near Taft/S-end of central valley) up through Hollister.
Or should you go up I-5 to Coalinga, you can cross over from I-5 to 101 using 198 (lots of twists and turns and hills on that one).
