    Hi guys,

    I'm torn between the 1.9 TDI cabriolet and 2.0 TDI cabriolet.

    It is a tough decision, even though the 2.0 is quicker, the price difference is quite a bit.

    I am looking to purchase the following:
    1.9 or 2.0 TDI S-Line Cabriolet
    IBIS White
    Red Leather Interior
    Xenons with DRL
    Heated Front Seats
    18" Titanium Alloys


    Anything else you guys recommend?

    Wouldnt the rattle of the TDI be annoying with the roof down? I'd go petrol all the way in a cab.

    White with red seats sounds perfect though, good choice!

    The 2.0TDI will be the new Common-rail diesel which is much smoother and much quieter than the old 1.9, which is even older than the previous 2.0TDI. I test drove a Cabriolet with a 2.0TDI-140 engine a couple of weeks ago and it was great. I would personally go for the 2.0TDI every time.

    Well, mines a 1.9 TDI and I don't notice the noise at all. To be honest theres more wind and tyre noise. As for the engine I originally had a Passat 2.0TDI 170 and 'came down' to a 105 bhp TDI. Yes you notice the acceleration but you get use to it.

    With the roof down, you cruise more than beat it around :)

    I couldn't justify the extra money for the 2.0 TDI, I test drove both and was quite happy with my decision.

    Had the roof down on the M5 today. Can't wait for what little bit of summer we have comes!

    That pic doesnt look great! I know its personal preference but I hate the way the white cabriolet looks with the roof down, it looks like a bath tub! (a bit harsh I know but its the only thing I could think of!) The design is wrong in so many ways, like its really obvious they have took a hard top and hacked the roof off. However it doesnt look as bad as the mini!

    it would be an EOS all the way for me! Or the 1 series cabriolet which is much nicer and in proportion.

    I'm with you on that mate. I could live with an S/RS4 cab :yes:, but the new 3 series coupe cabriolet is very tidy.

    I respect the soft top which Audi persist with in the way that it reduces weight and the size of storage required to pack it away, but it is starting to look a little long in the tooth.

    And personally I'd rather buy nearly new on a 2.0TDi than new on a 1.9TDi. Surely you must be able to make some money off with a deal as I was quoted nearly £2k off an 09 S3 the other week.

    I had one of these the other week while the car was in for a service, it was the the 1.9Tdi Sline, considering I couldn't stand the sight of it when released it actually grew on me through out the day...I wouldn't have one out of choice however, I can't speak of the 2.0 but the 1.9 was gutless, especially on the dual carriage way, I'm sure a remap would obviously help though, one other thing I didn't like was reversing, it's full of blind spots...it should come with a white stick really...lol

    I applaud the way Audi are sticking with fabric tops...I reckon the folding tin roof novelty will wear off soon - weight, complexity, expensive after a few years use because they will be knackered (on peugeots and stuff anyway). Plus, whats the point of having a cabrio if they don't look any different to the coupe :noway:

    But I'm a young old fart anyway, I like tradition :tapedshut: My g/f's mate has an A3 cab and it's quite a nice car...but the tombstone things behind the rear seats ruin it for me, ugly ugly ugly :puke:

    I have had the 2.0 TDI Cabrio DSG since July imo it's bloody fantastic. I to can not wait for the summer, we intend to tour Slovenia & Croatia for three weeks this year. Mind I am one of these idiots who has the top down whenever it's not raining.

    Man I wouldnt have an A3 cab if I were you.

    If theres many more guys that think like me on the road - You will be perceived as "puff" haha

    Go for an A4 cab if u must have one.

    Mini cabs are for women IN MY OPINION!!!!

    If I had a convertible I'd be one of those idiots too :haha:
    10 years ago I had a beetle roadster conversion thing and I drove it top-down whilst lightly snowing in December :ohmy: well I'd just got it, and it was much easier to see out of :p brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    A few people have told me the A3 hardtop is a girls car anyway! :)

    I never thought anything of it, then i seemed to check and for sure, virtually everyone i see is driven by a woman, especially young Asian women! But then I still havent seen a bloke driving a Q7!

    F**k them I say. People are obsessed with pigeon holing everything so they can quantify / classify it. A very bizarre trait of human nature.

    Always say that I'll buy something if I like it, and I don't really give a shiney sh1te if others have a problem with what I buy. They should be paying attention to their own lives, not mine!!

    hi, i went for the 1.9, had the same though as you, rather spend the extra 2grand on extras, been running ours since last july and i wouldn't say it's noisey even with the roof down.
