Picked this up a few days ago... going to phase out my W202's daily duties as it's turned 202,000 miles. Big change, 2.0T FSI manual shift, sport package, and a really firm ride compared to my C Class. Lots of modding potential, should be fun.
dealer gave me an A3 as a loaner when my Q7 was in for maintenance, nice car. Love Audi suspension calibration-firm but not harsh...the Q handles way better than one would expect for the size...nice choice
Good choice. We have a 2012 A3 Sportback Sport 2.0 TDi as a family / daily commute and can't fault it does everything we want it to do very well. Only problem is my wife is the main driver these days and she finds the engine boring, although most cars are after driving a SLK55 . Your choice of engine is a better one. Am considering the new S3 when it comes to replacement.
Yup, I've been looking for a "tongue in cheek" smilie, so I'm sorry if I over-reacted to your comment.
(Yes, I'm also in a household with a Golf TDi, but my guilty secret is a Renault Laguna dCi. )
