    What engine do you have in your A3?

    I am guessing it will be a 7 out of 10 split towards the diesel...........

    Bit cheeky to post now but my SB 2.0T is being delivered on the 8th January. So I guess that will make me in the near future a petrol A3 owner.

    Petrol is the only option for us in the United States. I still would have gone with petrol even if diesel were an option.

    There are! The results of this poll are academic as the fact is Audi sell far far more diesel A3s than petrols.

    The demographic on a forum such as this will obviously be skewed very much in favour of the petrol as it's generally "enthusiasts" who frequent places like this and most enthusiasts are also petrol-heads

    Petrol for me,

    I'm with you Wilko,

    any poll will pretty much always end up as one side against another, I bet if we asked which was the better diesel 1.9 or 2.0 both sides would have an opinion, same for FSI owners T vs NA or us 3.2 gluttons... god help us when its SB vs 3DR!!!

    oh and who gives up at 6K guys, my 3.2 will howl round to 7, oops what might I have started now,

    there's no right or wrong answer here people,

    Season's Greetings

    Diesel engine up front in my car too. I think diesel/petrol sales in Europe are approaching (if not already) 50/50, but this poll is differing for now!

    It's closer than I would have expected as petrol is still considered the default choice for performance cars.

    All this poll is proving is that most Audi enthusiasts choose HP over economy - no big surprise


    Don't regret buying my SLine 2.0T at all. Sure, 280 miles out of a tank is not good, but its a FUN 280 miles
