Hello from the 8P forum!
recently had my car at Birmingham Audi Approved for a quick look at a leaking coolant problem. as i went to collect i spotted a 60-reg A1 S-Line parked outside.
i asked my service advisor (Brett Turner, fantastic bloke for those living in the Birmingham area) who it belonged to and if i could take it for a spin. 20 seconds later the keys appear and i'm off.
it was a 1.4T S-tronic with THE WORKS. nav, BOSE, ambient lights and everything. the only thing it didn't have was steering paddles, which as far as i was aware were standard on DSGs across the range but hey-ho.
verdict: very nice little car! i was pleasantly surprised. it was MUCH more modern than my 8P (unsurprisingly), but it was also more modern than the B8 A4 1.8T S-Line they lent me as a courtesy car on this occasion.
nippy (but not as much as my 2.0T - probs the 75bhp less) and didn't handle as well (probs because of my coils) but having thought it would be terrible i was pleasantly surprised!
tbh i wouldn't own one because of the cost, but i wouldn't be upset if someone gave me one! for those of you on the order books, you've bought yourself a cracking (although somewhat expensive) little car. enjoy!
