Bad news i'm afraid, no series 2 or 3 wagons were officially imported to Australia.
The only S3 cars imported to OZ were the 16V hatch and Permanent 4 in 1991-92.
Even in NZ that gets most stuff that doesn't come here there were only series 1 and 2 wagons- mind you the euro spec 118bhp 1.7 wagons did go really well...
I have only seen one series 3 wagon, a 2WD 1.7ie in NZ about 5 yrs ago but that was a private import from the UK.
Shame really, I would buy a S3 1.7ie hatch myself if I could find a (good) one- there is one I have seen in Melbourne- probably a private import too.
If you want a S3 with 4WD your only option in OZ is a Permanent 4- there were very few imported but talk to Eminence if you want one and don't mind a trip to Tassie..
