    Hi Chaps, Just bought a 3 month old A4 2.0T Sline with 2 tone leather in Blue. Cant wait til next weekend. I'm sure this has been asked before, but what kind of MPG can I really expect on the motorway ? All comments will be appreciated. I'll post some pictures in the next week.

    I was really torn between the TDi and TFsi but I thought what the hell, it's only money at the pumps and I'll use my pushbike if I'm stuck.... Don't think i'll sleep tonight, saying that, think this week will be a long one.

    Torn? Trust me on this, the TFSI is a much nicer car to drive. You won't regret that decision.

    tfsi all day long, but think they got the expensive taste for the old go go juice they want feeding on super unleaded
    filled mine today £106 ltr what a joke, cheapest I have seen is £101 ltr
    BP got a tenner out of me at that pump.

    This week will fly, keep phoning the dealer and chase them, you really don't want last minute syndrome

    Evening mate
    Great engine tons of power!! I remember driving this for the first time, they hadn't put the T badge on the back, well I went down the road had to stop and lift the bonnet couldn't work why it was so Fast..!!!
    Remember FSI love Super though!!! I seem to keep going on about super..I came out of a diesel Allroad into the RS Mate.! I always knew they drank it like going out of fashion but this takes the pee..Lead foot syndrom has layed off abit now.

    Any FSI T great car you will not be dissapointed..did I mention they like super!!

    Enjoy

    3 days to go...chase the dealer though..sales are known to leave everything to last minute.

    I have a 2.0 FSi at the moment on a 53 plate, it's been a great car, but not exactly the quickest car. My sons go-kart is quicker off the mark and he is only 6 ;-). You are supposed to put optimax (98ron) in the fsi non turbo also and to be honest you really feel the difference in that so I can only guess in the Tfsi it's ever better. I STILL CANT SLEEP, anyone have a time machine ?

    WHAY !!!!! - Yes it's here hence no reply for a few days, been busy. Been to Essex for a weeding and it was great fun. Coming home today on the a1 there was a BMW on my arse approaching a roundabout. at I came off the roundabout, foot to the floor and I left him for dead.. he he he. The economy is fine. 260 miles then filled up, £29 which I thought was ok, back in a mo, just going to look at it again...;-)

    Hiya, great to hear about you new car. My wife has just given the OK to order a 2.0T S-Line Special Edition (you know what these woman are like).

    I am undecided with the colour. Black was my first choice but there is the issue of cleaning it every week, and lets be honest, it only lasts a week. Or, there is Mauritius blue but I cannot say I've seen one yet in that colour. Any chance of posting some pics anyone?

    Should I consider a used Quattro or a new 2wd?

    Take a look in my Gallery. Mauritus blue was not even in my mind, then when I seen the car it looked so good. Eveyone has commented how nice the colour is.

    Hi, It looks great!!! I'm 99% sure on blue but I'm also keen to see a car in lava grey so I can rule it out. Any pics anyone?
