Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great, shift is great between all the gears, seats are sport seats so comfy, I'm a wider, sorry ample lad! Seats are bum hugging if you have a wallet in back pocket, just try the seats I guess, still v comfy.

What's it like to park?
Perfect, has rear sensors.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing, windscreen feels like it bends the light just below the sun strip, feels like a cheap screen, maybe just me. Need to look at another A3 to see if it's the same.

What's most practical about your car?
Nothing really. It's a 3 door hatchback.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
7 speed box and start stop is cool. Paddle shift is class.
