    Hi All,
    I've finally convinced the mrs to sell the Astra and get an Audi, so now I'm shopping with her requirements.

    I've got a 1.8T 2000 which she complains is 'old' and a 'boys car" (how dare!)

    I wanted to get some feedback from you lovely people.

    We can get 6k for the astra so around that is the budget.

    Requirements are;
    5 door (she likes guests not having to clamber in the back)
    not silver or grey!
    Cruise control
    Petrol
    Sportback

    I've been looking at 2005 AUDI A3 2.0T FSI S LINE QUATTRO 5 DOOR SPORTBACK | eBay

    Is this a good choice as a model? Naturally I'll aim to get low mileage and fsh etc.
    I'm tempted to get an unpopular colour and have it resprayed for the difference in cost ;)

    Thoughts, doubts, complaints and love is always welcome.

    It seems around 80k is the best I've seen so far.
