Since I moved from Mondeo to A3, I have become even more aware of giving way for pedestrians and other traffic. I am not going to be the one to support a possible prejudice of Audi drivers being selfish p*****.
Same here, moved from a Focus to an A3 and I'm not changing who I am because of it. I'm still the same courteous driver as before.
Agree with Veeeight.
So sad to hear about the Corsa occupants. Wrong place and wrong time but ultimately the only right place for that sort of racing is on a track.
Don't think the company car market does Audi owners any particular favours as I see a lot of Audi's latched on to the back bumpers of other cars and quite often they have Arval plate surrounds.
A terrible situation, I hope the people responsible get a proportionately painful sentence for all the pain and heartache they've caused other families.
Read post #1 first line, 'why do Audi drivers get a bad press'.....
But what's wrong with having company car drivers?
But what's wrong with having company car drivers? Do they not earn the right to one? I have my Audi through a company car scheme and could have if I wanted to have gone private instead - doesn't make it any lesser of a purchase.
Interesting figures re breakdown of retail vs fleet cars.
From a VW retailer (the Audi figures aren't going to be wildly different)
In 2013, the dealer sold approx 8,000 units last year.
The bad reputation transferring from Audi to BMW is entirely down to Top Gear. It's still the BMWs that are tossers most of the time when I'm driving around. Probably because BMW pay some money to Top Gear or something. Just like how they are so against electric vehicles, perpetuating the same tired old myths about them, until you realise that Top Gear (the production company, not the TV show... because that would be against BBC rules) are sponsored by Shell Oil.
People do say Audi drivers are the new BMW drivers.
I however never feel the need to love up to a reputation.
I have an Audi , BMW and a white van........ Guess that makes me an even bigger **** than company car drivers lol ( wind up)
Ps I have noticed people let me out more or give way when I'm in the m3 , when I'm in the audi it's only other audi drivers who are courteous .......

Makes it even worse reading the story in even more detail on Daily Mail. So sad.
