German firm gives the A3 a harder edge
14 August 2009

German tuning firm Hofele has launched its own version of the Audi A3 Cabriolet.

Hofele’s changes are mainly cosmetic, with the firm adding new air intakes, an S3-style front grille, a new front bumper and redesigned fog lights.

Its new grille is available in either black or silver, while new black alloy wheels have also been added.

At the back, a new diffuser is available, which Hofele cliam can be “stuck” on top of the existing one. A quad-sport exhaust system is also available.

No prices have been announced for the conversion.
