    A New Convert

    Hi All

    After driving a couple of Focus' (first one was 2ltr Zetec then ST170) for the last 7 years I decided to make a leap of faith and go for the four rings.
    It wasn't really a leap of faith as late 2011 my wife got a beauty of a TT (2.0TDI 170 quattro s-line) and when I got to drive it, it was totally different class from the Focus. When the time came to say good-bye to the ST170 I looked around at what was available, predominantly looking at Ford again. Toyed with the idea of the new Focus ST but as it's only available in a 5 door chassis it was out. Looked into the upcoming Fiesta ST and the realised that I'm kind of past the boy racer stage. The good lady suggested looking where she got her TT and as if by magic this lovely 2010 A3 2.0TDI Quattro Black Edition had just come on the market. After a phone call the next morning a deposit was paid and a trip to Listers in Coventry followed the next weekend.
    A long way to go just for a car? Not likely. Got a much better deal heading south than I could get anywhere in Scotland.
    That was in November and I've never looked back since. Love the car.
    No mods on the car and to be honest the only thing I'm thinking about at the moment is the wheels, but I don't know what direction to go - new wheels or just getting piano black powder coating on the originals which I like anyway.
    Thats enough about me. It' all about the cars now. Here they are after a wash. Enjoy.
