    I found her to be economical, over a roughly 2000 miles cruising at 90mph she averaged 44 mpg. She managed to keep up fully laden with much more expensive bits of kit, a nice compromise between performance and economy, although she does sound like a bit of a bitch first thing in the morning(know whar I mean). Final comment regarding this A3, is that I must admit there is no replacement for petrol engines, not just yet any way.

    Enjoy, for soon she shall be gone.

    Good to see youve got a Quattro, going in Feb you'll need it.

    Taken on the run from Val D'Isere to Tignes, we were staying at Val Cloret. Beautiful sceneary!

    nice pics! Driving to Meribel on 27th Dec for a week and was wondering if you have any knowledge of snow chains? I know the roads are normally kept clear (coaches get there after all) but I have heard that I need to carry snow chains all the time. If this is true, can anyone recommend some that don't knacker alloys?

    Yes generally I think the rules require you to either carry snow-chains or fit winter-tyres between something like November and March.
