    Hey everybody.... Im back

    Greetings... nice new site. looks much better than the old on in my opinion. so thumbs up!

    Well as some may remember.. my noggy S3 met its end back in October 05 and since then i have been running round in a 1999 406 HDI exec. NICE!

    I also decided to leave work and set up my own business which is now going well. (http://www.cambridgeautogleam.com)


    Im back in the market for a nice car again though and am wondering about the following

    BMW 330CI
    BMW 320CD
    Audi S3
    Audi A3 TDI S-Line

    Obviously i have had the S3 already and although i'd like to rty something different... id love another S3!

    I wonder about the TDI because i have gotten used to the 40MPG from the 406 HDI and wonder if the S3 will prove just too expensive to run again??

    The BMW's... well it would be something different from what i have had... but i think there too common for my liking

    Any thoughts??

    what is the A3 TDI S-line like to drive compared to the S3?

    thanks in advance

    Welcome back JK.

    I've got the same 2.00 TDi lump in my golf with 4motion, it's great but you always long for more imo. But the fuel returns are good, so it's a comprimise.

    Hi JK, I remember your accident well. Some ninny pulled out on you right? Did you get payed out and found not at fault in the end?

    I remember you looking for that particular car for some time too, so I doubt you'll find another that feels quite as good. If I were looking for a Diesel then i'd defo take the Golf over the A3. I think they are better news second hand and look a better package IMO - still pricey though for a MK V.

    Yes i got a payout that i was happy with and was found not at fault atall so my 5 years NCB is still intact. Yeah i was searching for some time for the noggy and ended up doing a near on 600 mile round trip to go and collect the exact one i wanted.

    Still not many noggys on the market but i quite fancie a grey one now and they seem easier to find with the spec i now want.

    Not sure about the MK V Golf. never been a fan of the shape. think i prefer the new shape A3 to be honest. saw a 2.0TDI DSG SLINE for about 15k. thought it wasnt a bad price but havent seen many others to compare it with.

    Welcome back fella.

    A couple of x S3 owners have traded for TDI Slines, one of the Mods has as well from memory.

    Test drive is the only mate. Most Audi dealers are happy to let you have a 24hr once you've done one with the Audi co-pilot

    they'd let me have a 24hr test dirve just like that?? i might give that a go then. If the tdi Sline is almost as much fun as an S3 then it would be worth it.
