    As a current A3 owner who loves his car, I will check this out when it comes to Canada. I would not be surprised if this is available three years before gen 3 hits Canada, and could possibly 'tide me over'.

    How can you kill what is already dead?

    What is dead may never die.

    I don't want either because they have dirty ICE's but I think I'd take the ELR on looks.

    That was my thought, there's no need to kill the ELR, it was still-born. Nobody wanted it to start with.

    From that article:
    Wait. What?? A German car on sale in Germany for Germans with a top speed of only 130mph? Shocking! How is such a thing even possible, if you were to listen to all the Model S naysayers on here from Germany.
    </sarcasm>

    Good ackowledgement that even German car manufacturers recognize that a top speed of 130mph is fast enough for the Autobahn.

    Looks like Audi may have already missed the ELR window. Now that the ELR is discounted into the mid 50s I think it becomes a much nicer car than a bottom of the line Audi
