    Took my 09 A3 BE in for central locking fault.

    They gave me A6 3.0tdi Quattro Allroad dsg with 190 miles on the clock!

    What a beautiful driving car.

    Decent spec as well as it was the dealer bosses car haha
    Very different to my A3 sline,

    S3 in.....black 1.4tfsi DSG out....

    S3 in.....black A4 2.0 diesel manual out....

    S3 in......White A5 2.0 diesel out.

    The A5 had the worst budget wheels on I've ever seen.

    Id normally drive around getting a feel for courtesy cars, I took the A5 straight home and stayed there. Horrific car.

    This was all with my previous 09 S3.

    The new S3 is staying clear from the dealer unless my eye is stood over the bonnet with them.

    Was suppose to test an A1 when taking the S3 for a service but the back was too cramped for the wee one whilst in his car seat.. Ended up with a 2012 2.0 A4.. No too impressed with the interior compared to the S3.. very plastic and bland.

    Another was a 2012 Q3. Forgot which spec but it was OK to drive.. Nothing too spectacular.

    I was hoping they'd lend me their demo RS3 :laugh:

    Had a couple... first time a A3 1.6 cab but is raining heavily so no chance to put the roof down! Second time when my S3 was in for some warranty work I had a A1 for a few days - couldn't wait to get mine back!

    A4 Avant 1.8 TFSI. Long but surprisingly quick. Would give quite a few cars a shock in a traffic light GP.

    S3 in - Black 62 plate A4 S-line Black Edition out. About 3000 miles on the clock. Spec inside was ace, got boring to drive pretty quickly though.

    A3 1.4TFSI in - Nothing out - I was told they only have 1 courtesy car for all of Limassol which is the equivalent of a county in the UK. I ended up having to pay more for a hire car whilst my car was in the garage for 3 months. I was no pleased but then trying to get anything out of Audi here is like getting blood from a stone.
