Audi A3 1.8 T quattro Sport 5d (6) (2001/51) - Owner Review

Quattro, in the ice and snow it was a god send, also with the Quattro it meant that the engine could actually put the power down on the road when you put your foot down.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
It's a grown up car, it has some epic features like the engine which means you can still have a little fun with it in the country roads. and turn up for the meeting looking smart and grown up ;-).

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They would think that it is a sensable grown up car, but my friends would think it would be a fun car to drive.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definitely!!

What are you likely to buy next?
Another A31.8T with Quattro but it would have to be 2001 or newer as the previous versions don't have the same power and the interior is horrid.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£1,700

When did you buy the car?
May 2011

Did you get a good deal and why?
I got an amazing buy, the car was very clean and well looked after and it had been chipped. It was £1,000 cheaper than others of the same spec on the market - I did have to go to wales to get it but it was well worth it.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I liked the look of it, and the Quattro had a lot appeal for the winter months when I was living in a rural area. The power of the new 1.8T was very appealing - 180bhp out of the box.

What was the dealer like?
-

It was amazing to drive, with the Quattro it was like it was cornering on rails. You could take corners slightly faster than you would normally.

What's it like to park?
Very easy to park, good visiblity all round.

Living with it

What's most practical about your car?
Quattro, in the ice and snow it was a god send, also with the Quattro it meant that the engine could actually put the power down on the road when you put your foot down.
