    Re: Sort of poll: which model 8P do you drive?

    29 but 11 years and a few tens of 1000 miles without even a scratch on bodywork. Never had to do a claim either in my life....
    That should count for something!

    I was with Tesco until recently. I am now with Adrian Flux (broker). They undercut the Tesco premium by 20%, but as said depends on where one lives.

    Re: Sort of poll: which model 8P do you drive?

    i dont understand some people...

    why am i spoilt?

    cos i disagree!! and alot of people who knew me would disagree too..

    if i was spoilt i wouldnt be working.. i wouldnt have an A3 i would have a porsche..

    i pay for my own way and expect no help from my family in anyway..

    ive got to where i am on my own back. ive got all my exams and am proud of what ive done...

    and then you get people saying im spoilt....

    you cant win in life.. i didnt plan for my dad to be who he is..

    Broadmarsh - couldn't you use your OAP winter fuel allowance to fill up your oil burner?

    Or trade it in for a bus pass ;-)

    I current pay 312.28 with AXA Direct. Renewal notice was for 353.48. Saved a further 41.20 by getting a new policy with exactly the same cover and the same company by getting a new internet quote.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Dave, must be less crime up north then [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]. I was surprised that the A3 was 60 cheaper than my previous Golf 150pd.

    Anyone who is trying for a cheaper quote should give Tesco a look.

    Re: Sort of poll: which model 8P do you drive?

    You must right Japper. I have just got an internet quote from Tesco, and with myself and my wife as named drivers, same details as my existing insurance including only 100 excess. The quoted figure was 327.12. With 150 excess the price was 312.90 - 62p more that I am paying at the moment.

    When my renewal comes up I do a quote search using the 'This is Money' website. One of the things I like with the AXA insurance is there 'no blame, no claim' clause which means if you have to make a claim that was not your fault in any way they do not treat it as a claim.

    Dave,

    Acoustic parking option is the only option I'm sorry I didn't opt for. The new A3's design makes it a biatch to see out of when reversing.

    Re: Sort of poll: which model 8P do you drive?

    I keep reading this comment about the rear visibility . I haven't ordered the reversing sensors and think I may regret it. Is it possible to retrofit the sensors at the dealer and if so is it expensive?

    I'll be asking the dealer anyway but I just wondered if anyone had done this [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    I have a sportback, can't say I have a real problem with visibility out the back. I don't have the parking sensors but I have them on my works vehicle and there a pain! Don't know about the Audi fitted though.

    Re: Sort of poll: which model 8P do you drive?

    The Audi acoustic parking system is definitely not a pain. Most of the time your not even aware that it's fitted. When you engage reverse you get a single beep. Quite useful as a warning that you have reverse engaged. Only when you get to within about 1 metre from another object does it start beeping - slowly at first and then more rapidly as to get closer until about 300mm when it becomes a continious beep. It certainly helps when parking or manovering close to other objects. There is no sound outside the vehicle - none of the noise you get from vans and lorries as a warning that they are reversing.

    Yes, I can imagine the Sportback being better for rear visibillity because of more window area on back doors, something us A3 3dr owners dont have [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Am 30 yrs old, waiting for a 2.oT A3 sprtbck to be delivered in the next 3 weeks... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Insurance quote so far about 340 with 7yrs ncb.

    Only paid 500 with Bell Direct for my TT 225bhp when I was 28yrs old and 5 yrs ncb. Good solid Herts (Stevenage) postcode helps I think!
