Looking at getting (my third) A3 and was contemplating whether to get another 2.0TDI 170PS or go for the 2.0T. Issue with the latter appears to be economy as I've seen some reports that it's utterly diabolocal, returning low to mid 20s around town. The official urban figures are 46 & 29 for the diesel & petrol respectively which is a huge gap and I suspect the real-world usage will be even worse. 90% of my driving is urban and I don't have a light right foot and average around 33mpg in my current 2.0TDI 170, so low 20s in the petrol sounds likely - any experiences?
Secondly, has anyone here ordered the magnetic ride? What are your impressions of it? Whilst I have no problems with the firmness of the suspension on my current S-Line, passengers have commented that it's a bit "jarring" on long journeys so I was wondering if the magnetic ride would help.
