hello guys. after much fun in my 2.0 tdi a3 for 2 years i decided it was time for a change, to a petrol engine being the 1.4 tfsi and in my head i ideally wanted another a3. after taking a trip to audi one of the guys in the workshop told me not to go for the current a3 as they are releasing the new shape in a few months and me being me...i would b gutted if i bought a new car, and a NEWER model came out! so i had a look round the showroom and although i did have the a1 in the back of my mind i didnt consider it until i opened the door and sat inside. what a surprise! i have the spec i want as follows...s line xennon plus, bose,super sports seats, which are amazing to sit in and the car has to be the 185 variant of the 1.4 tfsi engine. which i figured would have more than enough power. as i will find out tomorrow on a test drive and some extra bits and bobs which i havent yet looked at but those are the main ones. and the best thing is that my insurance is nearly 1100 pounds cheaper so i am over the moon. if theres anyone with a 185 on here who is willing to share their experiences with their car i would greatly appreciate it. also does the a1 have paddleshift? i forgt to take notice when i sat inside it and i do like using them the odd time and i am just wondering if you get that loveley dsg pop inbetween gear changes like you do with the 2.0 tfsi engines in the s3 and tts because that would sureley be the icing on the cake for me!
thanks in advance
