    Afternoon Chaps

    so the hunt for a new motor starts this weekend and I do not have a clue what to do. It does not help that I need something nearly right away.

    Shall I try and source another A3 BE, 140 S Line TDI? It would have to be red or white 'again'. Early look outs show that there is nothing really out there. Plus I HATE the new rotary wheels. :sorry:

    The A1 S Line has caught my eye 'with a full spec' and 18s. But this seems rather pricey for a little motor and reviews on the TDI have not been good. Good fuel returns but no real punch??

    Or do i look at the opposition - Golfs are silly money and BMW's are... well BMW's.

    Im looking for something that looks awesome but also gets awesome fuel returns. Basically my old BE :(

    My last BE was 22k but I got 12% off. Somewhere around that. I also see that Audi have better PCP offers on at the moment.

    Just get another BE Dean. It sounds like you already made your mind up really.
    And you know your not gonna be happy with an A1, Golf or a BMW. If you dont like the new BE wheels get an older model with the RS4.
    Or just see if you can sell or swap your new BE alloys for the older style. Sure some one on here be up for that.
    Good luck on your search

    No problem fella, Just have a look on Audi website if there one further away contact your local dealer and tell them you want that one.
    My mate done it on his A3 it was up in Newcastle and we are based in South wales, He called his local dealer told him he wanted that one and they would have a deal if they bring it down. He paid a deposit and 5days later the car was delivered down.
    Or if your willing to travel for the car you want it will be worth it in the end. Headache i know but it will be the car you want colour, spec and miles. Good luck and keep us updated.

    :laugh: tell him i've copyrighted it:p Butler your surname im guessing. lol same surname as my mate i was talking about above :happy:

    Do you think Audi would be willing to switch the rims?

    These people sourced me a Black edition last July (company motor on a lease deal) and they got it delivered almost instantly and were really good to deal with.
    The only issue was it had silver alloys not black......... but hey less than a month for delivery compared with the 6 month odd that others on here experience......give me silver alloys all day long: Also like you I'm not keen on the new BE alloys so I'm happy!

    They are based in Harrogate but delivered to Essex on a truck no worries and no delivery miles, contact Gemma or Paul they were excellent
    Good luck mate Matt ​
