Awesome Car. Very Good Value — Very smooth quick car. Lovely to drive, extremely solid chassis. Easily tuned up, Defo could use a remap to 200bhp. Handles very well. Would only recommend the turbo or TDI 1.9. Standard models seem to boring and fairly gutless. Excellent car for money though. Recommend especially to women

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Beautifull car to drive, just make sure you find one with good history that has been looked after otherwise it will cost u a lot of £££s

Cons: Look out for the unloved ones or it will hit u hard

5000 — The perfect car for a student. Especially with the diesel engines. Perfect performance, low fuel consumption. The only minor problem is that sometimes the spare parts of Audi are not that cheap as those of other car makers. A good car overall.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance

Cons: Maintanance

The Finest Hatchback Ever Built? — Proper little car, used it to take my baby home from hospital and also for some savage laps of the Nurburgring. Not many cars at any price are this well put together, and the 1.8T motor was both quick and frugal, I really wish I had kept this car, I sold it to a good friend and it is still going strong!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Engine, mpg, nappa leather trim, build quality, sound system, solid feel to controls.

Cons: Another 50 horses would be nice.

Quality Cheap Fun Motoring — Cheap hot hatch. 1.8 turbo bullet proof engine, easy to modify and upgrade cheaply. Good handling, ride, build quality and very, very reliable. Petrol not to bad, average 25 MPG combined thrashing and easy. Prefer this original model as is lighter and more basic.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Reliable, fun and low maintenance

Cons: Insurance is high relative to performance.

Great Car Overall — It is a nice car, actually nice might be an understatement. This is a 1.8T automatic. The vehicle is very good, extremely study build quaility, good performance and good mileage. The car is fun to drive but understeers a lot, a problem seen in most other Audis of that era. The turning circle is not a big one but it is sufficient, the thing that bugs me a bit is that when you are sitting behind the wheel the car seems bigger than it actually is. In time you get used to that. We installed a direct injection LPG power and the car runs extremely smooth, we get 12/100 l. intown and 9/100 l. outside of the city. The parts are expensive as with all Audis.

Pros: Cheap to run, Sturdy, Nice performance

Cons: bad turning circle
