    aythreeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    What pilot is saying is rather the same as i have always said re: S3 and 3.2. sometimes 1 second here or there is not as important as driveability. The figures quoted are set on a track under ideal conditions but the fact is we don't drive like that. We drive on slippery pot hole ridden congested roads where the 0-60 times are completely irrelevant. most of the time speed is not a factor either. Traveling up the M23 today at a steady 90mph i was overtaken by a steady stream of builders Transits that had knocked off early for Friday....Am i quicker, yes, will i risk it, no. Having lived with a 3ltr Derv for a while i am completely sold on Torque over BHP but that is not to say the 2.0t or s3 are not superb cars. They are just completely different in there ownership + points.

    Buyers of the 2.0T quattro and 2.0TDi 170 quattro will probably be most influenced by annual mileage.

    There's no question that the TDi 170 will be more fuel efficient, just as there's no question that the 2.0T is quieter, faster etc. So, for a low mileage driver like me, the attributes of the TDi 170 quattro aren't fully offset by the fuel cost savings I'd make.

    Another big consideration will be the combination of auto gearbox and quattro, which is now standard on the 2.0T quattro (although it was available only as a manual for quite some time) but seems to be an option on the TDi 170.

    Interestingly, Audi's website compares the TDi 170 and the 1.8T (160bhp) and in other markets, the 1.8T is available with quattro.

    You know how they say that god gave Cheryl Cole, an otherwise perfect woman, a silly accent just to balance it out a bit. Well, do you think Audi did the same by giving some A3 Quattros TDI engines??

    Diesel - better for towing, more economical, and whilst probably ( definitely ? ) not as quick you will still have lots of fun !

    Hope you enjoy whatever you decide.

    She's all right... a quick nose job and leg extensions and she would be fine. As for that accent, who cares, i didn't plan on listening to anything she said anyway.
