Due to the thread in MKV forum being so big I added some pictures there to 'finish off the story' as it were but you have to delve through pages to find them so here is my new ride. Picked it up at 4pm today.
Bloody hell Irish, you caught me cold there, I thought this was supposed to happen next year? Haven't been reading the other thread, but you've turned me green as grass! (Or a Lepricorn's hair!) [:O] That is a lovely motor.
The only thing I 100% miss off the A3 is the xenons...
The interior is not AS good as the Audi but that doesn't mean it's bad either.
It's just about the drive, it goes so well for a standard car and I guess that is what VW tried to do for so long with the GTI and now it does.
The doors don't clunk shut as much as the Audi but again, who cares ya know? This car belts to silly speeds and has serious road presence. Almost too much. It attracts a lot of attention from male drivers on the road and it's slightly annoying but I guess they're just admiring a nice car.
The blind for the sunroof is rattling slightly, something my MKIV GTI also did but apart from that, it's perfect.
