Just picked up my 2006/56 170 Quattro sportback and WOW! what a difference from my 2002 A4 130 Sport. The A4 could hold it's own with newer cars but this 170 just pulls like f***ing rocket! I know a couple of the petrols A3s have more BHP but less torque, but are they (forgetting 0-60) as quick in Real life acceleration?
As my wife and young daughter were in the car i could not drive to quick but once they were back at home and i nipped out to Halfords. I pushed it hard in first and second slowing down as i went into third (30-zone!) It felt like it could do this for the next few gears!
Will have to go out tommorow and have another shot!!!!!
Also is it easy to replace the blank pannel above the drivers head to have the two small driving lamps and led's ?
