    Hello all,

    Picked up the Audi yesterday 06 plate A3 Sportback 3.2 V6 (manual) s-line in phantom black.

    What a car.

    Sounds fantastic, quiet and smooth unlike the type r for the last 2.

    I even managed 36mpg, according to the computer. 45min drive, mixed A roads and dual track but quite heavy traffic at times with some stop start.

    It has sat nav, which must be the ultimate gadget, and split rims over standard s-line spec.

    I just love it, but even after the first day I just must have a multi function wheel again.

    I dont need cruise or self turn on bits n bobs, I know whem its raining or dark, but the wheel is a must.

    I know they turn up on ebay but if anybody has one and even better could help me fit it I would be interested.

    Thanks all

    Rich

    PS I'll throw some piccies on shortly

    Sounds a really nice spec. Cheeky question i know, but what's the mileage and roughly what did you pay for the car?

    Just interested to know what the V6's are going for at the moment as A3/S3 prices seem to have picked up a bit.

    38K on the clock, paid £13,900
    including warranty and 12 months tax.
    Great trade in on my Type R.

    I live in Shropshire so bang in the middle if someone has a wheel and we can do a deal.

    Another Bridgnorthite, good stuff.

    Plans for the car, well re-map and exhaust eventually. Must have multi function wheel, I keep going for buttons that aren't there.

    Nice looking motor, and a good price. 36mpg is very good, I get that from the S3 with careful driving, but it drops to low 20's come playtime!
    I do like V6's and V8's, can't be beaten for the sound!

    Si
