    Cheers ScottishS3!:).. I know what you mean feva, I was the same when looking for my Audi! I originally was looking for White, but once I spotted this and it ticked all my boxes I went for it! I get alot of people passing comment on the colour, not too many around my way! :)

    Just having the very same discussion with the erindoors, think I'm driving her up the wall with all this car talk. Found a few 1 white 1 black (but also found a couple of bmws I like, don't call me I know it's an audi forum).

    Nobody is doing that! Just merely pointing out some common problems reported by some owners on here! Nobody is knocking the diesel.

    If the diesel is the powerplant you fancy, would the 3.0 TDI be out of the question? They seem to highly regarded by their owners.

    The 3.0 is unfortunately out of my price range Scottish.

    .....well you say that, but I'll be selling my 2011 3.0TDi fully loaded, Quartz grey, black edition end of may / June??

    But I'm guessing you want a saloon?

    EDIT:
    My current bmw is is all oem and mint condition (with a lot of tlc from me) small mods possibly but with a wife two kids a dog and several goldfish modding is a but down the list.

    Sound like you need an Avant !


    Sorry, couldn't resist the shameless plug!

    Cheers

    Hey can't fault you for trying, maybe if it wasn't an avant keef.

    Seen a black one nice spec but rotor alloys (still looks nice and I'm coming round to them) but it's miles and miles away! Why couldn't it be next door?

    Ha ha oh well!

    I spec'd segmented (potato peelers) wheels on my current car as I hate the titanium finish rotor alloys.
    My new car will have rotors, but day 1, they will be going off to get redone in Hyper silver as IMO that colour looks best.


    I feel your pain mate, hopefully you'll find the right one soon

    Cheers keef, everyone's been very helpful. Just advertised my bmw (get more selling private). In a poor signal area I'll see if I can link car I've found

    Edit: here it is

    http://www.motors.co.uk/car-34631997/ef

    Was looking originally at the 170bhp model, what's the thoughts on the 138bhp instead?

    Looks the part - cheap road tax too!
    Seems expensive to me for what it is - no nav.

    Personally I cant comment on the 138bhp, but I'm sure a few guys on here will be able to.

    Minus the black edition alloys I bought mine for £19k from an Audi dealer with only 9800 miles on the clock.
    I would agree, that does seem quite pricey

    Not going very well at the mo Si, seen a few just not the right one at the mo.
    Dont shout at me but seen a nice bmw .
    Away with work at the mo signal no exsistant pain in the arse.
    Message me your cars specs mate and price you after and ill read it when i get a decent signal oh and some photos if poss mate.

    But searching for cars is not a pleasurable thing.

    I know how you feel, searching for 2 weeks felt like 2 months to me.
    All these cars were never the right spec, and if they were it was too expensive.

    I had to compromise an S-tronic automatic for a manual to get the car I wanted.

    Just something about it that put me off the inside was wasn't very nice at all, the running costs were a bit off putting too and I like the Audi don't even know why I am looking at other cars just yet when I haven't even owned this one 12 months lol

    Yeah I don't even know why I am looking at them, I need a practical car to run, as I have my silly fast toy I need a cheap to run car and I like the Audi so I'm not looking at them anymore it was just a spur of the moment thing and I've always wanted to have a drive in one, I have now so my mind has been eased lol. How's your search going? I'm thinking of having mine wrapped now maybe RS4 blue like this one.

    Hi

    We have just got a black edition A4 2.0TDI S Tronic Quattro , no extras, straight out of the tin and the car is awesome. Wish it had the lighting pack on but it but might retro fit it.

    The car is Ibis White and I thought about the Daytona Grey but in the end really wanted white and am so glad we did. One thing that I was amazed at is that on the saloon there is no factory tint so paid for that myself just to finish the look.

    Cheers
