    Switch to a golf???

    Hi guys,

    Ive currently got a a4 2.5 tdi quattro sport 180, and im toying with the idea of selling to switch to a newer mk5 golf 2.0 tdi 140, has anyone driven one if so what are they like to live with. am i in for some dissapointment over my current car?

    tbh i love the audi it's never let me down but the fuel prices are starting to bite, currently on 130k but drives like a dream (so far)

    cheers

    the mk5 golf is very nice with plenty of torque etc, but one thing i noticed coming down from vw to audi is that the audi just feels so much more classier: especially on the motorway. better finish, insulation from wind noise etc.
    Audi A3 8L 1.8T Quattro 180 in black. Totally standard: for now...

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!

    Whenever I speak to people who have gone from a Audi to a VW they all seem to regret it - have you looked at the A3's?

    PS - I was looking at Golf MK5 Gti's recently!!!! lol

    Seriously though, my neighbour has one, I think he's got a GT Sport 140 D? nice car, looks good. I did have a MK4 130 TDi and it was an excellent car for sure

    Why exactly are you wanting to change?

    I dont think you'll feel anything but dissapointment changing from an A4 quattro to a fwd hatchback...

    If its fuel costs alone, then why not buy a smaller engined A4?

    Thinking of getting one of these to replace the wifes corsa (hate that car!), been looking at A3's
    and 2005-2007 3 door, golf GTI'S, I had one of the first 16v one's on a D plate in 1989 when it was just two years old, loved that car, Proper build quality, just like Audi's IMO....
