Default A3 1.4 t

This being the A8 forum, I thought I would post my thoughts on a model from the other end of the Audi range.

Last time Audi were messing my '8 up they let me borrow one of there 1.6 A3 Sportbacks in white covered in stickers advertising the stealership. The advertising didn't go down to well at my local BMW dealer where I had to briefly visit that day. In general I didn't like the look of the five door, it looked like a mini estate and the horrible alloy wheels did it no justice.
I was really disappointed with the car and it put me off the A3 range.

This was until more recently, when they let me borrow one of there 1.4T's, (Supercharged and Turbocharged IIRC) it's pretty basic but has the black optics pack and sport spec. First things first, the car is a joy to drive, it pulls strong and never feels slow, its a relaxing comforting drive and the build is top notch. The ride is good and it hardly drinks any fuel it is so quiet on idle I sometimes don't realise the engines on! There swapping me into a B8 A4 on Wednesday, I think I'm going to miss the little A3. If anyone's in the market for a small car, try it!
