    I know all about poor mpg, only had the Celica for 3 weeks, I hated it coming from a BMW 540i 4.4 v8 for 2 years previous.

    I wont be up for any meets or shows just yet, never had much free time and want to bond with the car first

    Yeh, that sounds cool! I just looked at your profile.. I've seen your car about loads.. I actually recall it accelerating rather fast away from b&q carpark.. sounds awesome.. of course not breaking any speed limits

    Insurance sorted.. cheaper than the Celica so got a little refund

    I don't collect till Wednesday and without calling the dealer, how would I find out if I have xenons and drl? Its a facelift 2009 model, do they come standard or option? I didn't look at it from outside with engine running or lights on..

    Is there a standard equipment list anywhere I can view or download?

    Still have that and the Superduke which I've had since new in 2006.

    Gone A3 myself too, have a 2.0T S-line Quattro - not quite Impreza fun but very nice in a grown up comfy spec sort of way - and being Quattro helps on our ****ty roads.

    Where are you getting your's from, Mark Kessell, DVS or GMO possibly?

    I've never owned a newish diesel and I have been doing a fair bit of driving recently so seemed like a good choice.

    I've bought mine from Dales Seat/Renault in Scorrier, just had confirmation phone call today to say payment has been sucessful and look forward to me collecting it on Wednesday.

    I also tried the Golf GT TDi 170 and Mini Cooper S but I felt most at home in the Audi.. preferred the S-line seats and exterior styling.
