    As the 1.8 isnt too quick of the mark - i was wondering about selling mine and getting the turbo version> is there a lot of difference in acc and speed?!

    also insurance premiums - will there be a big increase - i currently pay £685 fully comp - what would i expect to pay extra on a turbo version

    are a3 turbo sports quicker than an a4 turbo!?

    25Bhp different though the 1.8T has alot more tuning capabilities and mid range torque. Insurance wise 1.8 is group 13 and and the turbo is 15 maybe a couple of hundred quid different a year maybe more. I would assume that the A3 turbo is quickers as it is a smaller car try www.parkers.co.uk and under revies then techniqal data they give all the bhp and most 0-60 times for many cars hope this helps.

    Same thing when I was looking, I thought the insurance would change loads, but the diff between a 1.6 group 11 and a 2.6 group 15 was about £50. So I got the 2.6...

    got insurance from www.admiral.uk.com

    good luck
