Thought I'd get some opinions:
My S3's in the stealers at the moment, due to an intermittent knocking in the passenger door, and they've given me a new (05) A3 2.0 TDI to play with.
I've had it since last Wednesday and I must admit I am starting to like it.....quite a lot, with it's low revving engine and lots of torque.
You see I'm not a driver who'll rev the engine through the gears during 'normal' driving conditions, unless I'm being pushed [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/****_you.gif[/img], so to have a car that pull's very well from about 1.5/2.00 RPM, is very nice, needless to say I've beenmaking fewer gear changes in town, which is nice.
All in all I am enjoying the car, even though I feel the build quality is not as good as the S3 and it's not nearly as well spec'd.
Now the dilema. I've been thinking for a while about selling the S3 (could use the ££ right now) and the diesel route could be an option. I've never really thought too much about it, but after having the TDI for the past few day's it's really started to make me think...
What'd yall think??
