    Lovely car, only issue is with heavy feet the mpg readings can sometimes show 6mpg lol.

    Lovely engine otherwise.

    Relax, that was a test spirited drive & the average was 20-30 overall, just saying you may get addicted to the power with a lead foot lol.

    ahh good, MPG not a biggie tend to use my push bike alot now! ive turned into a fitness freak atm!

    will be using it of evenings and weekends mainly about 100 miles a week tops! used to take me at least a month and half to fill up the a3 2.0tdi!

    Can i install a roof rack to one of these? to take the bikes or a tow bar but i would like the towbar to be removed when not in use? as it kills the look of the car... im being a bit anal now but i want to buy right buy once

    ill be towing a jet ski on occasions too so i think an auto may be better? or would a manual suit me better for my use of the car?
