Managed to sell the scooby I bought to replace my A3..after just 6 weeks http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/1604344.htm Power wise i've never experienced anything like it in my life but unfortunately thats all scoobys seem to offer..... It was the most uncomfortable ride ever. No sound deading so sounded like I was driving with the windows open all the time!!! not good with 2 kids in the back!!! Audi's rule!!! I can't believe how an X reg 1.8T still on original clutch and suspension drives so much better! I've had it for 4 years now and now appreciate the build quality of it!!!awesome!!! I've decided to spend a bit of money on it (uprated suspension/clutch/exhaust/fmic etc... ) Its done 103K miles now, would it be able to handle a stage 2. Just waiting for it keel over then start looking at maybe a 2.0T 8P or a mk5 GTI.
