Evening everyone Well, as a current owner of an Audi 8v S3, which is great, I thought I'd try an e-tron as my local dealer offered me a borrow of it for the weekend. Wow - what a car. A great mix of economy and turn of speed and I never thought I'd say it, but the serenity of wafting along in full electric is fantastic! I charged it up at at home with the 13A socket arrangement and it took about 3:40 from totally flat. I then registered for the 'Polar' system on my iPhone using their app so i could use the charging sockets in the carparks here. I parked in the nottingham station car park, 2hrs for a full charge (free of charge too!) and then in Leicester city centre again, 2hrs full charge and no cost to me! When fully charged it showed 24miles range on full electric but I only managed 17 on it. When using the car in hybrid auto, i managed to get 79mpg on a round trip of 40 miles to my local town, and pulled on to my drive with 15 miles range left on electric showing. The iPhone app for the car worked perfectly too, including timed charging (economy 7 at home) and also the cabin pre-heat function which meant the car was totally defrosted when i got up in the morning and toasty warm inside too. The only thing I hated about the whole experience was the keyless entry/starting thing it has - god awful, give me a key any day. This will make for seriously cheap motoring and i can't wait. My work does allow me to have a lease car but doesn't offer a very good car allowance as an alternative so i've always just funded my own car instead. Now I'm doing more miles I thought I'd get a quote for the e-tron and although the lease was too much, it is only 5% BIK! Thankfully a quote on a Golf GTE with nav was just within the lease allowance and is also 5% BIK, so I've ordered one today!! Wife will be getting the S3. Now need to wait to hear what build week, but I expect it will be a long wait.
