    Hi there,Mark from Cumbernauld here-came across from seat-cupra.net.
    I am considering buying an A3 S-LINE 3.2 V6 Quattro(56 plate) which I am going to look at on Monday,and figured this would be the ideal place for hints and tips.
    My current chariot is a Mondeo ST TDCI(56 plate)and my car before that was a Seat Leon Cupra 20vt.
    Any hints and tips are welcome,and if I get the A3 am looking forward to posting here!!

    Welcome to the site mate. Great bunch of guys here who will help out with hints/tips if needed. Car sounds a nice one I'm sure you will love it. I've got the sportback 2.0T Quattro as I've got a little one and got plenty of room!

    Initial impressions-love it,but few things missing from the car I had on my Mondy which I miss-electric seats,auto dimming mirror,electric folding mirrors,rain sensing wipers and cruise control.But I can learn to live without them :)

    Glad your liking it. You could also retrofit most of the stuff thats missing through time and when money allows. Lots of Guides over on the A3 section. Have a read at your leisure. Happy :racer: :)
