    Well chaps, I probably won't be around very much any more as the A3 has been replaced by this:

    A Datsun with a Renault engine!

    And yes I know it's going to be a b*gger to keep clean.

    Thanks to everyone for all the help I've received on this board - it made Audi ownership all the more enjoyable.

    Cheers! Tim.

    Nice car Tim!

    Just be prepared to hear rattles from the dash. We've had over 20 Nissans parked outside the house, all been 100% reliable. But all have rattles :(. You pay extra for rattles with Audi, it comes as standard with Nissan :).


    Funny thing is, i'm going to be moving from a Datsun to a Audi :)

    Cheers guys!
    Datsun, please! :)

    No rattles yet (touch wood)! The old A3 rattled like a good'un - still after 100K miles I would expect no less. Thankfully doing far less miles these days so hopefully all the rattles on this one will be for the next owner to find!

    After a lifetime of Fords anything that doesn't rattle or rust is a Godsend.

    Cheers!

    Funny, the name Datsun faded away a long time ago in Australia, I think around the early 80s. I didn't know Datsun is synonimous (sp?) with Nissan. It is a lovely car, had the pleasure of racing against one with my Honda S2000 at a local track. It was much faster but dont know if it was the car's fault or the driver :)

    i used to have a black 300zx twin turbo. what a beast! i thought i could drive until i bought it - 300bhp to the back wheels, it used to do the biggest burnouts off the lights you've ever seen - if you could keep it straight! I blew it up in the end and decided to go back to audi's. i'l never forget though. i had an r6 at the time and there was'nt much between them up to 60mph!
