Re: D-Day tomorrow.....!!!!

Well here goes.......Time for the ABUSE to start............

I chose the A3 3.2 quattro DSG S-line

I chose it for a few reasons really....

1.. I drive to eastern europe every yr and I thought the Subaru would be to " In ya face " and be vandalised. And when you drive to Serbia you need a car that doesn't stand out really and the Audi just looks a normal A3...

2.. The Audi is Automatic which helps for my injury on my arm...

3.. The DSG paddleshift gear change behind the steering wheel is awesome so .......

Plus I got a better deal part ex for my Audi as well...Plus better warranty..Plus it was taxed....So I drove it away without spending anything on it...But will be getting a tracker fitted plus upgrading the alarm....

I still don't know wether it was the right choice but in time there's nothing stopping me trading it in for a wrx later....

Well that's my stressing out done for now.....But I've still got the Subaru rally day end of Nov so it isn't all bad...

But I really appreciate all the guys for their advice etc....You wouldn't believe how much this was stressing me out.....oh well....

Re: D-Day tomorrow.....!!!!

To be honest theres loads of ppl choosing other cars over subaru`s,my local dealers just closed the other wk-gutted really coz the parts lads were a great bunch and actually quite knowledgeable-its a fair distance to the next one however one of me mates works there so not all bad

Sounds like you probably made the right decision considering your circumstances. Audi will certainly be a lot more comfortable on long drives esp on your arm as its auto.

best of luck with it mate.

Re: D-Day tomorrow.....!!!!

According to Parkers online....The Audi Road Tax now is 210 WRX 400. Next yr Audi 300 WRX 415. 2010 Audi 430 WRX 430 So the Audi is quuite abit cheaper on road tax until 2010...And from what the lads on this site have been saying about their mpg's 18 - 22 mpg I know my mate who has the A3 3.2 quattro who get's 26mpg just around town...We'll have to wait and see.

I will be getting it converted to LPG beginning of next yr....Just over 2k for that...Only lose 2% in power...which is hardly noticeable...And then from that you get a reduction in Road tax as well..... Plus it's hell of alot cheaper on the wallet when filling ya tank up as well
