I'm new to this forum and could do with a bit of expert advice…
I'm looking at buying an A3, and want to treat myself to something good. As such, I've narrowed the choice down to either a 3.2Q or a 2.0TFSI (both DSG).
If I'm honest, my heart is telling me to go with the 3.2Q. The bhp and torque are just so tempting! Only problem is, my head is telling me to go for the 2.0T FSI due to, as I'm sure you've guessed, the dreaded fuel economy. Is there anyone out there who could give me any recommendations/advice as to which to go for?
I've just accepted a new job that will involve me driving around 55 miles (pretty much all motorway) to and from work each day (as in roughly 27 miles each way - averaging about 80-85 mph). That means I'll be doing about 275 motorway miles per week. Are there any 3.2Q or 2.0T FSI owners that could give me a steer on how much that is going to cost me in fuel? If there's not much difference between the two then I think I'll go the whole hog and get the 3.2Q. If it works out at being quite a bit different then I'll probably head towards the 2.0T.
I've reached a bit of a stale-mate on this one, so any help would be much appreciated!
