Hello. Well basically i am looking at buying an A3 in possibly around 4 months time as i will have 1 years NCB and with the price of my shares falling i have had to sell up quick (already lost £1500) therefore leaving me with abit of money. i then thought i would look up forums for inspiration and things and this looked the best one but noticed there are quite afew people selling theirs and wondered if they are really price to own. i currently own a vauxhall corsa 1.6 sport model and the fuel economy is absolutly **** (about 34mpg) i have had a look at the economy of the 16 and 1.6 se and it is around 38mpg. Just wondered if it is servicing, or just generally keeping in good condion that hurts the wallet. any help much appriciated. sorry for the essay.
