    any way

    I think the SB looks good and compared to the 3 door they are usually far better spec'd !! Hell of a lot of cooking model 3 doors about but people who spend the extra on a SB seem more inclined to buy all the toys as well. Personally i would have a SB if i wasn't 6ft 4" but i prefer the larger doors on the 3 door. PLUSS, thank god i am single again now :) and dont need more than 1 seat :)

    Truthfully I would agree I love my 3 door but there are a few on here that look awesome and if it was yours on the table Nath I'd be biting your hand off. When it comes to Stock however I do prefer the 3door.

    Nally- I think that price is a bit low. You selling privately? Should get a much better deal just have to hold out for it and forget the time wasters

    Price will depend largely on what you are buying ie: you might get 8k against a 20k car but you will not get 8k against a 10k car if you see what i mean. Haggle and Haggle, get them to chuck in GAP and extended warranty or a AutoGlym life shine, mats, anything !!! Keep your old tax disc...they do :) You would be amazed how many people leave £100 on the windscreen and £50 in the fuel tank then quibble over a couple of 00 on the price tag !!...I took the S3 vents off my car and sold them within 3 hours of px'ing it ..

    Insurance wise most companies will charge a cancellation fee of between £50-£100 so it may pay to leave it running rather than cancel and restart..
    Took me a year to find what i was looking for so stick with it mate :)) something will turn up

    I'd say you'd get around 8-8.5 for yours

    Im swaying more towards the sportback aswell, but they need to have all the toys!

    just spoke to aviava

    they will let me take a 28 day break ( insurance is still running) to find a car if i sell mine after that they would refund.
    so do i take a look at the quattro tomorrow or market it myself ?

    if so adversise at 8.5k?

    The first link you put up is a nice car and spec. You do know they aren't the same models though don't you?? The first link is a 170bhp model with Quattro and Exclusive trim which was a £1000 option when new. The second car is a 140bhp and only has half leather and no Quattro. I know the mileage is slightly less but the first car seems a better buy to me.

    As for insurance, just keep it running. It's easier...

    Around 30mpg, but I mainly do short trips. On a run to GTi International in Bruntingthorpe from Bath the other week I got 34mpg over 310 miles. Not bad....

    I put the plate details in my "mycarcheck" app and it comes back as a 170bhp and I thought most diesel Quattro's were the 170bhp...

    thats odd .. ahhh but i think some systems say that ( when you get insurance it always asks you to choose if its 140, 170 bhp. evan when you enter the reg plate)

    want quattro but wonderng how it will affect mpg my a3 is amasing i was doing just under 70 on the m6 and getting 57mpg. but like you i do a lot of a roads and county lanes.

    is it much better in the snow ? and is driving smoother or more clunky ( due to the quattro system clutches)

    It's good in the snow but you still have to stop and with ABS cutting in on the snow it's scary!! No clunks at all. You never feel the Haldex system working but it does work quickly and effectively....

    Quattro does very little to fuel consumption on the 2.0T, but seems to have more of a hit on the TDI. Quattro was available on TDI 140 briefly, but only on TDI 170 since that engine was introduced.

    The Haldex unit (which is what quattro is on an A3) needs an oil change every 40k / 5 years. It's usually about £80.

    As Ben H above says on the upkeep. You can't check the oil level or anything as it's sealed.
    Power split is a constant transfer as required but it is mainly front wheel drive. Power is sent to the rear when required but it happens very quickly.
