    Courtesy car

    My car is going in for a repair on Tuesday. I'm going via sytnerdrive and Albany assist rather than the useless audi ensurance for the hire car

    Sytnerdrive and Albany assist have stated many times I'll get a like for like car

    despite me stating I drive an s3 they are giving me an a3 the 150... nowhere near the same. Disappointing and so far reluctantly accepted but I said I'll speak to sytnerdrive on Monday

    Is the right or am I being unreasonable as I class it isn't a class a car

    Its like for like from my reckoning means a car of the same size / category (e.g premium hatchback). They don't have S3s just sat about waiting to offer for hire cars, so to be honest I think you've done ok

    You're not being unreasonable if they haven't got a like for like replacement they should give you an upgrade,tell them there are plenty of other companies that would supply like for like, Accident Exchange who I've used in the past were excellent.

    Fair enough but a £25K car isn't a £41K car (mine)

    Depends what they have in the pool, but as S3's are rare /new you'd be better pitching for a bigger model than trying to get an S3 as they're likely to be in limited supply.

    I had a sensor fault on my A1 and was given an A6 S-Line 3.0TDI Quattro. I thought they were similar in size and spec only problem was it cost me £60 in diesel for the 48 hours I had it. Stupid heavy foot.

    I only did 60miles, that car is thirsty. I probably topped it up a bit more as well.

    I think you've got the same category car, premium compact or hatch.

    After all, the S3 is just an A3 with a few go faster bits bolted on.

    I disagree, it's an A3 with a proper engine.
