Had this from new and it does take some getting use to as the quattro needs some extra gas to drive it. But what a car. 42 to 50mpg and I have now run 58k miles in it and engine has just been run in so I can notice a real difference. Quattro has never let me down in the ice and snow - yes you still need to be careful but never gets stuck. In the rain it gives you the feeling that it is laughing as it sticks to the road. Just had new rear disc's and pads and fitted Michelin Piolot sport 3,... (read more)

Great car. Performance is great and it is good on long journeys. It is a very comfortable car to drive, I would definitely look to get an Audi for my next car as well. I get the impression that the engine will go on and on without a problem. The only downside is that I prefer the look of the new Audi's, I should be looking to get a new one though sometime in the future. Great car. (read more)

Saw a great review of this also at http://icarcrazy.wordpress.com/2010/04/30/audi-a3-review/ and agreed with a majority of what it said.
I thought the Audi A3 is a lovely car, and would keep mine for as long as it was running.
I like the comfort and ride of the car, but don't really like the bulkyness of the estate version. But i guess you can't win em all (read more)

The Audi A3 TDi Quattro Sport holds the road asif its on rails. Servo steering is light during parking,accurate at high speed. The engine ...tdi 2.0 is very responsive.This is a proven chassis latest version is only a facelift ,some of the smaller engined models are underpowered (non quatro).
The quatro version with 2.0 tdi 170hp(125kw) is up to the job.
In all its a drivers car,other car makers could learn from this.

Don't think that what you need is what you want! Just put a deposit on an 18 month old quattro 2 l tdi. Wow was shopping for a replacement golf when I thought I'd better check this out.. test drive to die for. Whatever made me think I needed a golf? (read more)

Definitely the best TDI I have ever owned/driven, the overall package is even better than my Chev/Holden V8 and Alfa 156 V6 was.
Can't wait for the new TDI motor. (read more)

This car has to be driven to be believed....Its had several mods from chipping,d-valve..etc etc only costing around £1300!
1st gear is really short but 2nd,3rd,4th,5th and 6th last for ever with plenty of torque!!
All it says on the back is 1.9 TDI Quattro and looks completely standard.....
Peeps are always trying to race me but the look on their faces when i pull away from them is priceless!!!! (read more)
