Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I like a fun drive, but I'm not a boy-racer.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My wife says it's too fast (but she drives a Golf and hates overtaking). My friends say its a mid-life crisis car (but I think it's too well engineered to be a cry for help) and my neighbours think it looks great on the driveway

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would. It's been great fun to drive, very safe and really well designed and built.

What are you likely to buy next?
If I strike it lucky it will be an Audi R8. If not, maybe something more practical like an Audi Q5 or Land Rover Discovery.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
New

What price did you pay?
£23,500

When did you buy the car?
April 2011

Did you get a good deal and why?
Googled 'What Car' to see what the local Audi garages were giving on discounts and used that as my negotiation.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Saved up for four years to get a sports car after the children left school.

What was the dealer like?
Warm and professional.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
A beauty. In town it can be driven like a family car, but its at its best on country roads. Great acceleration in all 6 gears, brakes are amazing and very safe. Steering is light and responsive. When you plant your right foot you go back in your seat. Great grip in corners. Very safe on motorways - and very smooth at higher speeds, pulling low revs at 70mph.

What's it like to park?
Easy, but multi-storey car parks are tricky as its quite a wide car, and modern bays are rather narrow. Visibility is pretty good for a sports car.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
A bit of condensation in the winter, but root cause not found.

What's most practical about your car?
Can drive like a tame family saloon in town; it doesn't misbehave when driven slowly and carefully.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I paid extra for leather seats. Very comfortable and hold you in nicely when driving at speed.
