So expensive! How much is an A4 in comparison?
Audi, VW, Skoda and Seat models are getting closer and closer in appearance.
Yes mate exact same place..its the 4th holiday l have booked since November...and if it gets cancelled "unlikely " but still possible...I'll forget a holiday this...year...had enough of this virus pantomime....just like 99% of the population...I paid the full amount...a month ago...£4500 so...if cancelled it's going towards my next car deposit..anyway Audi interior full stop....tis the way....lol Seat is aimed at the younger gen....Audi is aiming for folks who know better lol
Going back to work after all that forced time off will take more effort for the first 3 weeks

Looking at the Golf 8 inside and out and l have got to disagree with you mate.....roles have been reversed the Audi is the sporty looking one this time around and the Golf is basically a mess inside and out.....Far too much high gloss black plastic around the 8's cockpit binnacle and the climate controls are even worse looking...using touch sensitive sliding controls
The Audi A3 aint perfect either....having exterior paint showing internally around the A pillars Blasthemy.....in a Audi....Cheaper plastic in the rear doors.......build quality diminishes but prices keep increasing....such is life......now
If it’s Turkey you’re going to you ‘should’ be ok ... but nothing is certain atm is it !
We had a states trip cancelled in May and no idea when we’ll get the flight money back from Virgin which they’ve had since July last year. Got a full deposit refund from the hotel.
Our trip to the Canaries we’ve shifted to next year ‘foc’ so at least we’re not out of pocket.
Updating a few things on the house now which we’ve been putting off.
I think we’re all missing holidays this year so good luck if you do manage to get away, once you get to resort and are all self contained it should be fine & being a high grade hotel the safety standards should be reassuringly high.
From what I’ve seen you can really see how heavily related the brands are now, it’s not a criticism.
Agree on the Golf, it’s a strange design but does look a lot better in GTI spec.
Some of the Skodas and the new Leon looks quite smart.
Shocked at virgin would of thought you'd get your money back pretty quickly from them .
We got our money back in full off Emirates for our Dubai trip within 5 weeks .
We are not even bothering trying go abroad this year it's just too much hassle .
The wife as put the money we got back from the holiday to good use with a new sofa new composite front door new carpet though out the house
and so on at least its done now
Got agree with Mr Freeze. The A3 interior just looks a mess. Kind of a next gen honda or something.
Virgin Atlantic ... rather than Holidays
yeah not impressed !!!
That Seat interior looks cheap and any car with an Ipad stuck on the dash, I will avoid like the plague.
Yeah it's hard handing over hard earned cash for something you know you may not be getting! I had to pay the rest of ours off in May knowing the world was in a right state, I'd already paid £1,000 off it early in the year so it was a case of if we cancel I'd lose that £1,000 if they cancel we get it all back, so had to pay the rest. Then you have the worry of if the holiday is still on you either go and make the most of it or cancel and lose all your money, TBH we were glad they canceled it in the end. Luckily a quick refund followed!
If they do cancel yours and you have a yearly travel insurance policy, just phone them up and they will refund you that on a pro rata basis. Ours ran from Feb-Feb, I lost about £15 But yeah totally fed up of all this c-19, work all year looking forward to your holidays and that's been messed right up, couldn't even see the reds lift the cup last week but as you say the saved money goes to either another car or more holiday next year...further away and for longer!
Not looking forward to the return at all, be dead on my feet by 12.00 Just hope I lose the stone I've put on!!!
Hope you get it sorted soon pal
Other tablets, and better ones, are available of course. But then the same can be said for around 90% of all cars if they design the interiors correctly. The screen needs to be high enough so you don't move your eyes too far from the road infront so manufacturer's don't have much choice. Besides many accused the A3 & A4 of similar but I am just waiting for the day when they properly ban the use of touchscreens whilst the car is moving..
I personally wish Audi would of kept the centre console dial instead of the touch screens
can see a lot of accidents happening because of the touch screens .
I’m rubbish with my left hand, in more ways than 1,so I’m good
Will just leave the screen alone whilst driving

I'am left handed so I'll be fine
I have just started back this Monday.Been off since 19th of March. Only in for a week and the works closes for two weeks summer break...Go figure? ha ha......
Deffo Audi interior over Seat...I've had plenty of both makes and hands down Audi have better built interiors and materials.. Having said that Seat are very generous with providing tech as standard.
Most folks can see right through governments now as far as this "thing" is concerned Spain was off then on and the virus radar within a week...and unfairly so.and the CEO of TUI....has told them The Government he'll do what they think is safe to do from now on...it's 5 weeks til l go......can't wait....
Besides.....................S3 Saloon 2021 as one has to.....keep the Envy....levels up with ones neighbours lol

Opinions don't matter on this forum.Remember the 'Mono Pur' debacle a few years back....Still trying to find out what started that one???
I really need to visit an Audi showroom this weekend and have a butchers for myself......but as of late av been doing more charity work for family than Geldolf and Midge Ure done in the 80's...lol
You've a Pauper spec S3 Saloon remember.....so don't dis De Pur..................lol but at least it's yours mate.....and not a 4 year holiday rental car........
True lol.......Regret not getting upgrades though. Like you said though it's all mine now
My brother is picking up a new A1 S line this Sat. So might go along and see what the fuss is about myself . lol
What Colour.....Audi Turbo Voodoo Blue by any chance....lol Great idea then we could compare notes afterwards on here....lol
How did you guess? lol
Same colour as this one. It's a 1.5 tfsi Vorsprung edition dsg. not sure what else he has specced?
mono pur is ace ... can’t beat a bit of extended leatherette lol
Oh jeez! It's started again lol
For instance Just looking at the leather on the steering wheel tells me...it's low rent....reminds of the Chamois covered steering wheels on the Mrs Fiesta
that steering wheel is not attractive is it.
nice looking car & should be a nice spec being vorsprung
I use to hate jumping from my Audi into the wife's Seat and noticing how horrible and skinny the Seat wheel felt compared to the Audi wheel. Also cabin noise in the seat was noticeably higher.
yeah I think he will be happy. He chopped in his 67 plate A3 saloon diesel for it. he said it was a lot nippier than his A3 1.6 diesel sline.
Just for you @jassyo06

No doubt the Audi cabin will be better quality albeit not to the same level as previous. On the looks front... Oh dear !
Why make the middle so big and ugly.
