    Audi Summer Time begins!

    Well Guys, with the clocks going forward yesterday and the sun shining I decided to give my car a wax and polish and post some pics. Now I know there's a few of you who don't like the A3 Cabriolet but I do.

    It was great driving in the sunshine out in the country yesterday

    Anyway here we go:-




















    Lets wish for a good summer!

    Yes I'd love one of these with red stitching. As I've got the MFSW I wounder what the cost to upgrade would be, anyone any ideas?

    Yes Lee, it is the Wrekin, I was out for a ride round there. Its not far from Wrockwardine, it was somewhere btween Longden on Tern and Walcott.

    Yes, its a 1.9 TDi. Couldn't justify the extra 2K for the 2.0 TDi and I'm no speed freek. Perfectly happy to cruise and enjoy the economy. I test drove both models and am perfectly happy with its performance, and with most roads around here now littered with speed bumps, cameras and 40/50 mph speed restrictions not really ble to put the extra bhp to use. Just drove back from Devon and got an average 55MPG at average 67mph (according to DIS) Totally meets my needs.

    The car is standard except for the mirrors which I added to match in with the chrome surround and door handles.

    I know you either love them or hate them, I obviously love them!!
