First of all, hello to all the Audi drivers and enthusiasts on this forum.
Having completed my degree this summer and looking forward to graduation I am also in the process of buying my first Audi. Being only 21, I only have experience of driving a 2007 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 Club and a 2008 Renault Clio 1.5dci 106PS. Within the next month I will be taking the plunge for an Audi A3 and would really appreciate some help and feedback (believe me I have been searching for hours on end not only this website but the whole internet for information, pictures and videos of the questions I have).
Initially I was sitting on the fence between a BMW 320d and an Audi A3 2.0 TDI/TFSI S Line, however a test drive quickly swayed my decision to the Audi.
I am considering a 2007 onwards Audi A3 S Line trim with a DSG automatic gearbox with either a 2.0 TDI (170PS) or 2.0 TFSI (200PS) plants. What are the thoughts on this forums towards these trims? What alternatives if any would you Audi drivers recommend through your experiences?
I have also found one for £9500 with 44,000 miles on the clock and what looks to be in immaculate condition in silver. It has the S Line three spoke steering wheel with no buttons on the sterring wheel, will this car be ok to work with the Audi RNS-E navigation system? And is the RSN-E even a worthwhile purchase? (I thoroughly enjoy listening to music while driving). From the images I saw this steering wheel looks rather different to the flat bottom steering wheel in the A3 I test drove, are the S Line three spoke steering wheels as comfortable to drive and high quality feeling as with the newer steering wheels?
I look forward to all your replys and I thank you in advance.
