Hi all just a quick hello.
I've just swapped the keys from a stage 2 vxr to an sline audi a3 tdi quattro in red with 45k.
You can pretty much guess fuel consumption comes into it and to be fair insurance and tax pretty munch swayed me to the derv side :D the vxr was a nippy little bugger tho and 230 bhp in a car the size of a roller skate is going to be hard going down to a 140bhp diesel... So I thought!! I love this audi its so comfy and just the whole feel of the car is a massive step up! I thought I'd miss the recaros but nope the s,line leathers are like arm chairs compared. and the handling is so much better than the vxr! I suppose the quattro helps overall I'm happy,. My bank balance is happy...but we will see how long I can go before a remap is being thought about I have to take a run up when I want to overtake now :D iv had a few niggles so far.. Rear wash wipe were blocked which was an easy fix... Boot release on the boot seems to have a mind of its own unless I'm being stupid!!? Flat key fob battery In the spare key..And the washer bottle looks like it dirty on the inside (like a dark green residue) That's my main concern!
Anyways will no doubt need a few pointers in the right direction over the time I have it..
