    I have the Audi 1.8T Quattro 2001 model and i think its great, although they do drink the juice, so id say if you were a bit more sensible than me, go for the TDI version, whack a remap on it and away you go

    Yeah the options are endless, suppose it depends what you want - personally id have a 130tdi non quattro, they're quite a bit less expensive to insure, drink a bit less and are rapid once on the move.

    the 1.8's are nice cars too tho, i suppose it just depends on what you prefer, get yourself out and drive a few.

    Would be the diesel every time fo rme tho.

    Yeah, if only because the golfs are nearly as expensive as the a3 which has a slightly better interior
