I had a A3 2.0TDI-184 quattro s-tronic for the day earlier this week. It was the first time I had ever driven a car with quattro and I was very impressed. The performance was very similar way to my existing 170 but obvious the handling was better because of the quattro and with more 'go' than the 150s I have tried. The car was an S-Line on the standard 18" wheels and Sport suspension which was a little harder than I would like but certainly OK for testing. The car was quite basic with hardly any of the options I personally would choose. The only real problem was my wife and I both found the sport seats harder than we would like for our long journeys, but whilst I could choose to have normal rather than sports suspension, it has to be a Sport model as that the only version Audi UK offer with the 184 engine. I still have a couple of further test drives booked, one in an 2.0TDI-150 SE s-tronic and one in a 2.0TDI-150 Sport s-tronic. Both of these will now be in the new years. I must say I do enjoy test driving the various cars. My slight problem at the moment is that, with the exception of the 184 quattro, nothing has quite matched the performance and comfort of my existing 2.0TDI-170 Sportback SE s-tronic so it seems that I may decide to keep it longer. They suspension setup on the new A3 is certainly better than my existing and there are a lot more 'toys' to be had. The only other option may be to have a 150 and have it remapped which I had done to the 140 I had before my current 170.
