    I only drive to work on Monday and then drive home on Friday plus any use over the weekend, to be honest the Audi was getting a bit expensive to run, both fuel and running costs, plus it was hitting 140K so defo time to get rid. Got a fair trade in price as well, a lot more then an Audi dealer offered against a similar priced A3.

    Shouldn't the title of this thread be 'Audi gone'?

    Man, that is a boy racer car with attitude!

    152 mph top speed, wicked. I take it you were leaning more towards performance than comfort?

    When I was a boy racer the best car you could get was an RS Mexico, and as I grew out of my teenage years it was an XR3i, but the ultimate was the Sierra 4x4 cosworth. My mate still has the sierra cosworth, new engine, it's so fast it is scary!

    I wonder if your new car is faster than the cossie, it looks like it should be.

    Not much of a boy racer, more mid life crisis........as in my signature i used to own a Cupra R, i really didnt want to get rid but needed a bigger car, i have enjoyed the Audi but wanted the thrill of a petrol again and cant afford S3 prices.
    As for comfort, the leather recaro seats are comfier than our sofa....
