    1.4 CoD engine

    I've just done 1000mile and the best journey was Portsmouth to Verwood return at 60 mph and set ACC and no jams was 54.9mpg. My 3 year old fiesta at 50mph couldn't get anywhere near that.

    Detailing the new car

    I seem to be going down the same path as you, although my car came with a cleaning pack. However I have considered a power jet but living on a main road can be a bit awkward.

    A3 1.4tfSI 140 Sport or A3 2.0TDI SE
