Not been on for ages sorry guys but need some advice.....current A3 SB BE 2.0tdi in Monza Silver is a cracking car except the suspension is pretty firm at times....so we have a new born due Nov and as such when it comes to replacing our current A3 (Its only 16 months old now) well no doubt not be able to afford a decent spec so im thinking ahead and timing delivery of a new SB in time with our child being born in Nov.
Spoke to my usual contact yesterday offered prices happy with them but my mind got wondering last night do i opt for the 1.4tfsi 140bhp which is new and v clever or stick with my 4th 2.0tdi?
I know the engine weighs less, less insurance, lighter on the front end so probably grips well in the 1.4 but MrsC has always loved the tdi.
My contact is a an independent car supplier so was offered a Golf GT but with no xenons, no climate control that rules that out for me versus the s line. Checked out colours and love the daytona grey (predicatble) but i think it looks cracking. So my only decision is which engine?
Current car has only done 12,300 in 16 months so really we dont need an oil burner. My thought was residual value of the petrol v diesel??
Also think im going for SE suspension this time as well is that a mistake? Roads near me are crap and i have to admit current BE is just too firm over potholes and rubbish roads sadly.
Any help in my choice all appreciated!
