    The saloon is HOW much?

    You guys need to compare like-for-like, the saloon is limited to certain engines and configurations only. As already mentioned, the saloon has a price premium of around £900 over the sportback. Personally I don't see the point myself, if you want a saloon get an A4.

    But this is the point I'm making. If the point was to produce a more powerful engine without comprising fuel efficiency then how come you can still have the same (if not slightly better) performance in the same 140ps engine without COD. Kind of defeats the point of having the tech in the first...

    Actually the Seat's standard 140ps petrol engine is marginally more powerful than the Audi's.

    I'm a little bit sceptical regarding the fuel savings of these current COD engines over a standard petrol version. Seat have the standard 1.4 140ps petrol on their Leon, and as yet no official announcement as to when they'll get the COD/ACT variant, and already owners are posting real-life...

    Does anybody have the "asset protection"?

    Or use a cheaper quote to try and knock down the Audi dealer quote.

    You do seem to talk a load of nonsense. Opinions are being expressed here, nothing more. Illegal my ***. At least the opinions expressed here are generally unbiased, unlike yours it seems.

    OMC (Oh My Cod!)

    I had a lengthy test drive the equivalent Golf GT ACT and on their DIS it clearly states you're in 2 Cylinder mode. It'll basically kick in whenever you're not accelerating heavily so it does actually come on quite a lot. It's not noticeable when it activates but on the odd occasion you can feel...

    What do i order 1.4tfsi 'COD' or 2.0tdi SB sline?

    OP, if I were you I'd want to test the 1.4 TFSI COD engine first before making any decision. It'll likely to be impossible to get the Audi version to test drive but you could try the Golf GT ACT version with the same engine.

    1.4 COD Sportback S Line Nearly Here!

    Do any dealers have the 1.4 COD as a demonstrator yet? I was in the Golf version last week and wouldn't mind a drive in the A3 for comparison. BTW, it's very clearly displayed on the Golf's display when you're in 2 cylinder mode.

    The only car I know of in the UK that has full LED headlights at the moment is the new Seat Leon.
