im waiting for my 1.6tdi and all i have to say is why would you wanna go over the speed limit
get 1.4 diesel corsa...£30 tax for the year lol...
in my opinion id say get 8p if you havent already decided. 8l is dated nowadays
Iv got a 8p 1.9tdi im only 19 nw. Had this wen i turned 18 and my insurance is 1100 fully comp. So not that bad. The pull on a 1.9 tdi is just perfect for me atm. And there not that expensive atm either. Should consider one of those. Only issue is its a litle loud but thats only wen stationary.

MSG ME FOR DETAILS
Apparently the 1.2 TFSI is tax free isn't it? I remember the sales men at Audi talking to us.. told me the 1.2 TFSI was a lovely engine, very smooth and responsive.. but has never driven one..
Picked up on the 30th May!

I think the 1.6 Audi is a very nice car to have if your 17, I had a 1.2 sxi corsa and my first insurance quote was £3500 so I ended up on my dads company insurance, then I couldn't handle that little car anymore upgraded to a BMW 1 series 2.0 diesel, but now I have the 1.6 fsi a3 and I can't complain ATM its a good car and I cruise down the motorway at 100mph no problem.
Although I am sourcing out a newer Audi 2.0 diesel now I love that engine. I think you would be surprised and really like the Audi.

The 1.2 TFSI is a lovely engine in a Polo, but it lacks pull for the extra weight of an A3. The 1.6 is okay for a first car - but you get similar power and better fuel consumption with the 1.4 TFSI... that would be my choice (and very nearly was) if you can't get insured on the 1.8T or 1.6/2.0TDI.
Have you tried running a quote with the 2.0TDI 140? I found it was cheaper than the 1.8T to insure ... then made up the difference by bumping up to the 170 quattro.
