    I don't think the 3-door will reach the US, maybe the 5-door hatchback. As far as I know Audi only sells the Sportback there, don't they?

    You are correct and since they only sell the 5 door the S3 will be unavailable for the time being here. What I don't understand about them being afraid to hurt VW R32 or GTI sales is that they sell both in Europe without to much of a problem (don't they have to compete there to?).

    Well apparently I was wrong, since BMW is bringing the 3-door 135i and 130i models eventually. I guess it won't be long until Audi brings there the S3 too.

    Yes, only the 4 door hatch.
