    I am guessing it will be a 7 out of 10 split towards the diesel...........

    Bit cheeky to post now but my SB 2.0T is being delivered on the 8th January. So I guess that will make me in the near future a petrol A3 owner.

    Petrol is the only option for us in the United States. I still would have gone with petrol even if diesel were an option.

    Just put it back to 50/50. Would reckon diesel a slight winner.

    There are! The results of this poll are academic as the fact is Audi sell far far more diesel A3s than petrols.

    The demographic on a forum such as this will obviously be skewed very much in favour of the petrol as it's generally "enthusiasts" who frequent places like this and most enthusiasts are also petrol-heads :)

    Petrol for me,

    I'm with you Wilko,

    any poll will pretty much always end up as one side against another, I bet if we asked which was the better diesel 1.9 or 2.0 both sides would have an opinion, same for FSI owners T vs NA or us 3.2 gluttons... god help us when its SB vs 3DR!!!

    oh and who gives up at 6K guys, my 3.2 will howl round to 7, oops what might I have started now,

    there's no right or wrong answer here people,;)

    Season's Greetings

    Diesel engine up front in my car too. I think diesel/petrol sales in Europe are approaching (if not already) 50/50, but this poll is differing for now!

    It's closer than I would have expected as petrol is still considered the default choice for performance cars.

    All this poll is proving is that most Audi enthusiasts choose HP over economy - no big surprise :)


    Don't regret buying my SLine 2.0T at all. Sure, 280 miles out of a tank is not good, but its a FUN 280 miles :racer:
