They love it. Most are very jealous.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes i would. The build quality of the car is of the highest standard. The audi customer service is top notch.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another audi a3. One with a bigger engine and slightly newer.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I love driving this car. The handling is so easy, and despite the lack of feel through the wheel, the whole driving experience is very pleasing. The acceleration is very good in the 2.0 version too.

Have you had any problems with the car?
Cam belt needed replacing and so did the brake discs.

What's most practical about your car?
Very easy to fit five adults comfortably. Plenty of bootspace. Very easy car to drive.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The AC is very good as is the Sound of the radio, but favouite gadget has to be the cruise control purely because it is so unnecessary. Auto lights and auto dipping rear view mirror is very useful.
