    Hmm... the difference is 3.7% on the speedo vs the 235/55/18. I feel if a change is desired, then an upsize to 18" rims would improve the looks PS - are you sure its not the previous model with this 235/55/17 tyre?

    I took only 1 pic. Dont look good; dont do justice to the beautiful lines and shape of the Q3. The 215x65x17 inch tyres are too skinny, and the 65 profile on 17" rims look awful.

    I checked with PA and the Q3, 17" wheel model comes shoed with 215x65x17 tyres. It is very, very close to the 235x55x18 tyres on the 18" model. However I feel the 215 width is too skinny for the Q3

    The tail lamps are a loser - look so Mazda 3! Boot storage improved significantly and adding rear seat fore/aft sliding feature is a plus. But still behind other German competitors.

    Actually fitting 235x60x17 tyres to the 17" rims, will bring it very very close to the 235x55x18 rim/tyres configuration.

    From what I read, the Q3 with 18" rims are shoed with 235/55/18 tyres. So, am surprised the Q3 with 17" rims are shoed with the same dimension tyres. There will be a 3.6% difference in the speedo readings!

    Right decision to move away from the 7sp dry. Its scary when the MU fails and you are in the middle of the expressway - the car just stalls to prevent damaging the gearbox!

    Thanks, somehow I missed your reply earlier. I just remembered - my previous Q3 also didnt have spare tyre. That was always a worry when I drove the Q3 into Msia!

    No one can confirm whether the Q3 comes equipped with a space-saver spare tyre or not? This item is listed as a $534 option. And a car jack is also listed as an option. Thus my question on whether a space-saver spare comes along with the standard Q3. If no space-saver spare tyre is supplied, then perhaps, consideration should be given to change to runflat tyres.

    Thanks, very helpful. Mid $140s with overtrade will make the Q3 very competitive. Can someone please answer my question on spare tyre? Thanks

    Yes, I would appreciate if someone can PM me the buying price from the recent motor show. Thanks in advance. Changing from 18" to 17" wheels changed the VES band? Hmmm....?

    Thanks for the confirmation. I am familiar with the DSG, having had 3 previous cars that had it - 2 with 7 speed, and 1 with 6 speed. Fortunately they were all of the wet clutch design. What confused me is that an earlier article (pre-launch in SG) on the Q3 Gen 2, stated a 7 speed dsg will be used for the SG model! I dont mind having a 6 speed dsg, and the old 1.4T engine; but the 1.5T engine (as used in some other countries) would make me happier, I guess! I also looked at the PA website to learn more on the Q3, and saw the myriad of optional equipment that could add up to big bucks $$$. Its confusing as hell too. Oh, another question. The standard model sold in SG - does it come standard with elec adjustments and memory?

    Another question on the new Q3, is there a spare tyre (space saver)?

    The new Q3 just caught my eye; I used to have a Q3 2.0T but sold it off 3 years ago. The new model looks great, even though (I have not done much research yet on this new model) the engine specs look similar to the 1.4T that has been superseded. My fear is the gearbox; I am scared of the dry dual-shift gearbox. I read the spec and it said it is a 6 speed; am I correct this a wet clutch gearbox? Can anyone confirm please?

    A turbo engine + a heavy right foot is about the worst combination for FC. And if you frequently drive at 130 kph (which means frequent full throttle to build up speed and overtake) plus doing the Genting stretch, these 2 factors would definitely raise the FC. SUVs are generally heavy (vs saloons) and have poor aerodynamics; these tend to raise the FC too.
