Hi, first post on here, have been reading the forum a while but only just got round to signing up.
I am wanting to buy a 5dr black edition in black. I've looked at a couple so far, one a 170PS version and one a 140.
Was just wondering from people who actually own one (rather than Audi figures) what sort of MPG you are getting out of the 140 version? is it anywhere near the combined 67MPG that Audi claim? Also from test driving it's hard to gauge but is the ride quite firm?
I do around 15k a year mostly on A roads, drive fairly steady but the type of roads I'm on involves a bit of braking and changing gear. I currently have an 04 Golf GT 2.0 TDI which I get 53-55MPG which is pretty good to me for the age of the car and the sort of driving. Just wondering how this compares to anyone with the 140 or 170 A3?
I know their is also a 140 STOP START version but the thing that puts me off with that is the single exhaust, doesn't look as sporty from behind although I imagine it could be easily (and cheaply enough) replaced with a twin pipe?
