I can see that in general, Audi-Sport.net contains some busy forums, but the A2 sections doesn't seem to get much use! Out of interest, how many A2 owners are there here but just don't use the A2 section?!
Strange, isn't it? This is one of the least-used forums...
Wierd really, because it's not as if Audi aren't selling A2s...
I'm not an A2 owner, but if we ever had kids I think this would be the car that we'd get (remapped, obviously /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif ) - there's no way we can get all the baby paraphanalia (sp?) in the boot of the S3 - we tried with Rebecca's niece - so perhaps we'd have to change to an A2 for Rebecca and an S4 for me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif
welling following an a terrible accident in an audi work shop some months ago, & after many atempts to rectify damage to all 4 alloys, my local dealer has had my car for 4 whole days now - and guess what? I am driving round in a bright red 1.6 or 1.4? FSI A2! Not quite as good as what I am used too, but hey, that FSI engine is a puller! I am still not sure? is it a diesel or petrol?
The reason that there arn't may A2 posts is that there arn't many A2s. The A2 tech spec is brilliant, but, as I understand it, it was originally design was as a hybrid/dual fuel car. So it ended up too tall and too narrow and thus did not look quite right. I like it, and for technical attributes, I am considering buying one. I believe that it just don't appeal to the average Joe Public.
So you end up with a small user base.
Now this user base in probably in one of the following three catagories:
1. Old farts like me, and the wife, who love our VAG products.
2. Sad people who belive that owning an Audi is chic, even if it has a VW transmission system (A3 and TT included).
3. Wives who are given it as a shoping car.
