Audi A3 Hatchback 3.2 V6 quattro Sport 3d (2003/53) - Owner Review

Nice driving position, as long as you're going forwards. Backwards, a different kettle of fish. Mind you the sound of the V6 is fab! To the extent that one of of my friends insists on having the windows down and stereo off so she can hear it!

Audi A3 Hatchback (03-12)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought ex-demo so good as new, just not as expensive.

Costs

4 out of 5

Not reached first sevice yet (19,000 miles). Front tyres last 15,00 miles. You can shop around and get them (P6000 Rossi's) for about £110 a corner.

Performance

Ha! Don't let Scoody Doo drivers fool you with their supposed 0-60. Once you're rolling you'll keep up with one no probs!

Reliability

No probs so far.

Nice, wolf in sheeps clothing. Looks like a 2.0 TDi Sport when debadged. Until you come to pull away.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Nice, especially with the Bose sound. Fast, clear road and "The Killers - Sombody Told Me", and you're away!
