A3 spotted in US- Why?

Hey gang- thought I'd pass this along and ask a few questions about
Audi's plans in the US. Last week, my folks made a trip to Columbus,
Ohio... When I called to check up on em', my mom said she saw an Audi
that looked different.

I assumed A6, but she said it was smaller. 
'Was it a hatchback?'
'Yea, that's the car.'
Gotta hand it to mom- spotted an A3. The reason she noticed it was
because it had rings and had a similar style (according to ma).

Why would the A3 be in the US? Isn't testing over, even for the Mk4 Golf
chassis? It could have been a mule for TT testing. I know it might be
someone from Europe visiting with the car.
Could Audi be looking to 'steal' back some marketshare from VW by
selling the A3 here?

Just wondering.
