What real world mpg are people getting if you try to drive as economically as possible? I know it's not what the cars about but there will be times when this is required.
What are the must have options? Will be buying 2nd hand so won't have the luxury of speccing to order.
Used to have a 2.0 tdi s-line with all the toys plus Votex, sold it to part fund a business venture and might be looking to get another one.
For anyone that has gone from a 3dr to 5dr, is there any more space, perceived or real? Also if you went from s-line to s-line, I understand that they...
I'll soon be doing a lo less miles so won't be needing an oil burner. Did anyone that bought the above look at alternatives? I've thought of the Mkiv R32 which seems to really hold it's money, but more recently have been thinking of an Alfa 147 GTA.
Anyone driven one and got any constructive...

Well, tomorrow I hand the keys of my A3 over to it's new owner :(
Gonna be driving a pos Golf for a while until the new business takes off.

I'll still be loitering...
Got pulled by the plod tonight for 'dangerous driving'. Joined the motorway at warp factor 6 and shot straight out through a gap into lane 3...in front of an unmarked Skoda. Pish.
They 'estimated' my speed at 90 but didn't have any proof.
What can I expect? If anything?
Guys, my car is STILL for sale. It's been on Ebay about 5 times, Autotrader for two weeks (useless) and on pistonheads for about three months. Whilst I wasn't in any particular rush to sell it, it's starting to get a bit dull now. Do you think the price is realistic? I've dropped it a grand...
Yet again when the car went in for a service I made sure that the reservoir was brimmed & yet again got charged for washer fluid.
When I queried it, the dealer said that as part of the service they drain the reservoir and refill it to make sure the concentration is right.
Previously I just...
Car's in having it's second AVS at the moment and have had a call from Southampton Audi to advise me that the rear brakes are 70% warn. I enquired about the front brakes and was told that they were fine.
This strikes me as a little unusual but the dealer reckons it can happen.
Had an issue with a bizzare bit of Glaswegian road planning when on my hols so either needed a rapid wheel repair or would have had to tootle home on my space saver (no thanks!)
Anyway, called Chipsaway who sent out a chap called Richard Wallbanks. What a guy. Excellent job, came to me on a...
