What does this car say about you?
Likes something a bit different.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They liked it mainly. Some though it was a bit of a weird choice.

Would you buy this car again and why?
NO!! It seems Audi's of that age are at breaking point, and weren't designed for longevity. My sister's 1998 Seat Ibiza has hardly cost her a penny. This Audi, and many Audi's I know, cost a fortune.

What are you likely to buy next?
Got rid of this car as quickly as I could. Considered keeping it after the expensive repairs, but when the oil light came on again, I just wanted rid of it.

Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

April 2012

Not bad. Good P/X valuation. Car came with brand new MOT.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted a future classic, unusual car that would hold it's value and prove reliable. How wrong I was...

What was the dealer like?
Friendly enough.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Shame it was so rubbish, as I loved driving it. The driving position was great, the interior was nice and it was very easy to drive in both the city and on motorways.

What's it like to park?
Very easy.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
HA. It cost me £1200 in repairs in the few weeks I had it. The list is too long, but pretty much everything. Starter motor, excessive oil consumption, brakes, weird noises. Started to see why the previous owner got rid...

What's most practical about your car?
Compact size but very roomy.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I guess the styling.
