It's Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Good For Male Or Female Drivers. — Car is AWESOME. Love everything about it. Performance is great and the body is built to last. Looks sporty and elegant. It's good on gas and fun to drive. This is a major steal for anyone who wants to enjoy a luxury vehicle. The backseat invites car seats, strollers, etc....very roomy.

The Fashion Alternative To A Volkswagen Golf — The first successful attempt from a luxury brand to enter the compact segment. The small brother with almost the same luxury, sexi appearence and attention to detail as the rest Audi's line up. A pricier alternative to a Volkswgen Golf GTI but the differentiation and overall response really worth it After 4 years the car still makes a lot of people turn around to take a second look at it. The small german rocket retains the panzer aggressive look with enough power

3 Door Tdi Sport With All The Toys — Awesome little car until the cylinder head warped and the turbo blew up, not exactly what I expected from a brand new Audi. I suppose I did hammer nearly 80K onto the clock in 3 years though and Audi replaced most of it under warranty. Held its value well (after the £1500 replacement turbo) and I’d probably buy another one.

Pros

Fast, economic, great stereo, solid build, looked great.

Cons

Expensive to buy (although I wasn't paying!), maybe a bit too subtle?

Absolutely Superb For A Daily Commute Up And Down The A34 — Built like a tank, fast enough to keep up with anything realistic and it did 50mpg everywhere!
