Hi All,

 

After posting on here over a year ago I finally got there, you guys were right I can't stop smiling :D

 

Was thinking about getting a facelift but the wife decided she likes me enough the way I am so I settled on a Catalunya Red 16 Plate. Picked it up a long way from home and drove 7 joyous hours up the road home. The wait was more than worth it, I'm thrilled!

You are not going to regret it (provided you don't mind regular visits to the filling station).

 

I am 18 months into mine and still drive every journey like I am on getaway duty. I am certainly immature (even though I hit the big 5-0) but can't help it...

 

If you want to drive like a grandad then buy a 1.5 TSi.

 

Find a good road and rag it!!!!

Yup already realise I'm going to be on first name terms with the local Shell & Tesco stations. There's been a bit of a lunatic emerging in me already, and hitting 3 figures in the car comes up surprisingly quickly which I'm having to meter a bit, the acceleration is hilarious to be honest. The wife thinks its all a bit nuts but likes the look of the car and my son always asks me to floor it then explodes like a firework when I do. As I said previously you guys were all right, great car!

No, got it from a private dealer further south, had word in with various Audi dealers (found about 30% of them very helpful, the rest were somewhat lacking). Extended the warranty with Audi for assurance.
