We’ll be honest, we’ve been a bit skeptical of the drivability of aftermarket air suspensions. There’s no denying the trend for such setups is exploding or that cars on the market like the new A4 allroad make installation of such setups even more intriguing.

We’ve just run across some photos that seem to have come out of the equivalent of a Road Runner & Coyote cartoon. No, it wasn’t crushed by an anvil, but likely a steel shipping container is a whole lot worse anyway. Apparently the car was crushed when the container was thrown from a truck near Quanzhou, China.

Audi of America tells us the A3 sedan will arrive on these shores by March 2014. Given their penchant for conservative timeframes, we think that could be a fair bit earlier… but it’s not now… not yet. Comparably, the UK seems to have already gotten them. Jealous?

Sometimes we wonder if Motor Trend does their annual Best Driver’s Car story simply so they have an excuse to rent out an airstrip (and helicopter) in order to stage the equally annual World’s Greatest Drag Race.
