“We’re about to confirm that we’ve cancelled the Q3,” Joseph, Audi AG’s German PR representative says to me with a smile as I walk past him and into the frigid morning air in the Quebec back country.

He pauses, waiting for my morning din to crack and for me to respond.

“Really?” I ask quizzically.

“Yes, we’ve decided to instead build this,” he replies, grinning and nodding off to my left where I see a rather unassuming little Jeep-like vehicle looking like it stepped right out of a 1960s Davos ski advertisement. Its bright khaki paint looks almost vibrant yellow against an overwhelmingly white snowy backdrop and its white canvas top looks anything but army.

Those underhood storage boxes are awesome. They would also be a good place to store that CIS garbage!


I know I'm not the target market but I would by this over a Q3 any day of the week.

I know they made some turbo diesel versions but they are harder to find than even the regular ones.

There are often a few coming out at the Canadian VW shows as these were the standard Canadian armed forces vehicles and so theres often some available on autotrader.

They put these plastic/styrofoam balls in the gas tank to reduce the chance of gasoline explosions/fires during a mine hit, which in their late age often wreaks havoc with the gas systems (doesn't make CIS any better).

I'd love to find a diesel one... or swap one.
