    ..PLEASE HELP, WHICH CAR..

    Hi all..

    I used to own a remapped 225 TT, and loved it, stupidly swapped for a BMW coupe Sport, now I really miss my TT, but found the TT unrefined,noisey in the cabin.

    Now looking to come back to Audi, but don't know which car to buy..

    I like the A4 Cabs, but seem a little slow, I like the A/S3 but not keen on framed doors.

    I love Quattro, but like the idea of S-Tronic gear box, but Audi don't do on the Quattro for some reason ( anyone know why).

    I like the new TT, but still to expensive..

    I would like to stay with a Turbo engine, due to tuneabillity..

    Can any one help with which car I should buy, want to spend upto 20K max.

    What are the non Quattro cars like in comparison to Quattro, most of my driving is either town or back roads to work, where the TT came into it own..

    What are rthe Diesels like, with fuel prices going through the roof, diesels is looking good, but dirty noisey engines put me off..

    I hope this thread makes sense, and any light shedded would be great..


    Thanks..

    diesel

    well i own a 140tdi with blue fin remap and that flies the power is mainly at the lower end rather than pertol at the top end.i do agree with u that the engine is noisey but audi have reviewed the model with a small facelift and new engine range with a 143 bhp engine which apparently is refined and not noisy but who cares the engine is a fab engine and well proven on all the vag range

    Qstix, have a look at this one. Only 2k over your budget, but i bet you could meet him half way. Fully loaded including stronic and dvd sat nav

    http://search.autotrader.co.uk/es-uk...r=&max_mileage=

    It's a 3.2 rather than T but there are turbos around for similar money.

    I've had both Audi and BMW, if you go for a diesel please go for a BMW, RWD is FAR better than FWD (but if you went quattro even better(Audi)) and the common rail engines are far better too. I'll be getting rid of my A3, as much as I like the car, driving it just isn't the same as driving my BMW's.

    My personal thoughts anyways.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.
