I got my Audi A3 1.4 TFSI 8V nearly a month ago now and really liking it. It was the dealers demo A3 before I bought it, but had low mileage and still under warranty etc. It didnt have all the options I wanted - tbh I would have liked the Zenon headlights and the better sound system, but it was with my budget and still very happy with it.
Before this I drove a '98 Peugeot 106 Quicksilver, so quite a step up!
See you on the forum :)
