170 or 140 bhp - advice wanted
Hi All, New member here.
Currently got a A3 2.0tdi sport sportback 140bhp and have put 65k on it, it will be 2 years old in March so I'm looking to change it. AFter compiling a shortlist I've decided to buy another sportback in sline model, but shall I go for a 140bhp model with a few extras (nothing essential but nice to haves and things I don't have at the mo) or a 170 s line with no extras?
Not bothered about the difference in mpg, 90% of my driving is on the motorway. I'd like to know if the 170bhp is good to live with in real life, is there too much power/torque for a fwd car, will I notice the difference in overtaking and on my twisties? I love to drive on good roads when I get the chance but looking for commenst from others.
I've got a test drive next weekend booked.
