    Hi All

    This is my first audi,a4 sline special edition 170. I called around to my mates brothers house to get my sat nav disc unlocked. Whilst i was there he said could he take the car for a spin as he is thinking of getting a b7 model,hes had all audi b5,b6 etc. He was not impressed at all!!!! said his 130 b6 would eat it. He called his mate a vw mechanic who also said the 170 b7 audis are dead compared to the b6 130!!!! Anyone any input on this??? he said the 170 golfs etc are fast but the 170 b7 audis are dead!!!!!!!! He also said my steering was fat too heavy!!!! LOL.

    Not sure how any of us can offer an opinion, as we haven't driven your car. The only opinion of the car that matters is yours. If you're happy with it, why worry about what someone else thinks?

    An Audi looks better than a VW, that's all you got to remember lad.

    According to Parkers it should be around 8.3secs to 60, which is sprightly enough for a 50mpg wagon
