2006 Audi A3 3.2 quattro S-Line

I have several times bemoaned the fact that, until recently, Volkswagen opted to not bring the 4-door Golf R32 to the United States. However, what they did offer for fans of utility was the Audi A3 3.2 quattro. It was a very expensive luxury counterpoint to the Golf R32 that we often feature, and with effectively the same running gear performance was nearly identical. They’re fairly rare to come by, even in comparison to the pretty rare Golf R32 – most likely due to the hefty premium that Audi charged which put the 3.2 A3 squarely in line with even more commodious options like the A4 2.0T quattro Avant. Once in a while they do pop up for sale though, as a stealthy silver one has today – just in time for the inclement weather in New England:

If you’re looking for a stealthy alternative that has a bit more style and build quality compared to the Volkswagen, the A3 3.2 is a great option. Like the Mk.5 R32, these were DSG-only setups – so if you want a manual 3.2 you still need to look at the early R32s or later TT/A4 alternatives. Silver over black isn’t hugely inspired but it looks clean and well kept all around. Proof of that is in the wheels which are 3.2 specific and, due to their semi-convex shape, tend to suffer suffer curb rash often. They’re not the prettiest wheels Audi has ever offered but they are pretty unique and somehow remind me of my old Hot Wheels cars. I’ll be the first to say that the A3 isn’t the roomiest option for a small hatchback out there, but it’s one of the best looking and out of the box this was the best performer and one of the few that offered all-wheel drive. Pricing of these early A3s is all over the map, but this setup seems reasonably well priced considering the package and even the somewhat higher miles for the year. It is truly a good all-arounder with plenty of style on a budget price and will certainly make the next owner feel pretty special!

  1. Very cool car. I have to wonder, with the miles being what they are, what kind of upcoming expenses one would incur? $12k seems like a steal, but not if the first year is going to cost an extra tiptronic trans and timing belt/water pump. . .

  2. These are great cars, I use one as my winter driver. $12k is a good price considering it has high miles. I bought mine last year for $17k with half the miles and it came with navigation w/ Bluetooth and Xenons which this car does not have. It has been a great and fun little car, no issues whatsoever. The DSG dual clutch transmission is very solid with few reported failures, in contrast to some of the ZF tiptronic automatics that Audi uses in their A4 and A6 cars. Jayson these 3.2 engines use timing chains not belts.
