    OK, so having realised that A3 Sports are out there for not daft money and that the wife can get insured sensibly on one we find ourselves in need of more info on them if anyone can help?
    Looking at 1.6/1.8 3door models around 1997/1998 year. What sort of power figures do these develop? And what sort of goodies/trim come as standard. What optional extras did they have that are worth looking for?
    Sorry for all the questions, but Susan is now quite excited about the possibility of upgrading to an A3 and it costing no more to insure than her Corsa GSi currently does.

    HI. Powerwise the 1.6 is 100bhp and the 1.8 is 125bhp. out of the 2 definately go for the 1.8. Have you considered a 1.8T? They are surprisingly littla extra to insure over the 1.8 and are much better power wise.

    Hope this helps
