    buying an a3, which one is the best ???.

    Need some help here Guys & Girls,
    Just after joinning

    I will be buying an A3 (2004) 1.6. My question is, is it worth going for the FSI over the standard 1.6???? (bearing in mind that i will be coming from 1litre POLO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. FIRST CAR). is there a big diifference over the standard one ????????????. And also does anybody know if there is an agent for oettinger in IRELAND or the UK for that matter for the bodykit (shown in my avator pic)??????????

    THANX in advance

    might be better posting in the 8P section, it deals with the 2004 model

    I would have thought that the 1.6 8P would be slower than your polo.... Take one for a test drive...

    i dont think anything can be slower than a 1.0 polo , thats what i have got now , due to the sale of my s3 , it does 90 flat out , 0 - 60 in about half a day , but then again i get 400 miles or so from 40 , the s3 was a nice car and i am still used to it as i am always trying to overtake on the motorway and end up getting stuck in the third lane
