Daves Car — comfortable, powerful for a 2.0tdi, plenty room for a hatch, quite quick for a diesel but can slide too much on round abouts, also spins quite a bit on take off in the wet. other than that a top car. i love it too bits. that is until get a new one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling

Cons: slides too much around roundabouts above 48 mph

Hot Convertible — A3 Cabriolet is the best little small soft top around. Sports suspension and good around driving is great. There is more room in the back than the A4 convertible and holds the road better. The roof folds down in under 10 seconds and can be folded up in just the same time, boot space is large also compared with other models.

Pros: sporty

Cons: doesnt like ugly people

Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 Tdi (170) S-line, S-tronic — Performance - A near perfect blend between power and economy having a big diesel - providing you don't drive with a lead foot all the time. Build Quality - first class. Glovebox lid feels a little cheap though, and needs a firm shove to close. The biggest downside - why o' why does Audi insist on rock hard suspension on S-Line models?

Pros: Build quality, performance, heated seats, understated but still classy looks, specification, decent local dealer, easy to drive

Cons: Ride quality over anything less than average surfaces, pricy to purchase, rear seat a bit firm, DPF filter

Audi A3 2.0 Tdi S Line — It's too easy to describe this car: beautiful,i love it ! Audi = Design + Quality + Driving pleasure :) It cost more than a classic car but you pay for the quality and also for the Audi logo ;) Don't hesitate for the S-Line Package, you must take it !

Pros: Design, quality, driving pleasure

Cons: price

Audi A3 Is Ace — It's sporting, handles well, puts down an amazing amount of power and feels solid. The ride is smooth, but lets you feel the road still. The interior is quiet and well laid out. I enjoy driving it, but want to lower it a bit as it looks a little vanilla still.

Pros: quick, agile, beautiful

Cons: blue tooth is frustrating, not super roomy

Audi A3 - Little Known Beauty — I'm on my fourth A3 since 2006. I've loved this car since it went on sale here in the US for the 06 model year. The build is fantastic with the legendary Audi interior quality. Performance is fantastic along with great mileage (real world is 25 city and 33 hwy). The A3 rides very well in any of the versions, the leather interior is extremely durable and very comfortable on long trips. The car is the perfect size for my family (3 people including my 7 year old girl). I really can't say enough about this often overlooked gem and eagerly await the 2009 model update.

Pros: Many

Cons: None

My Audi A3 — Good solid drive, better than the BMW Series 1, more fuel efficient (I need to stop driving fast). Trip computer is a bit unreliable but works reasonably well. Overall a nice car to drive just a bit noisy at speed (really needs a sixth gear Audi!) Nice shape, cool alloy wheels, what more do you need!

Pros: Looks, trim, stereo, engine, fuel efficient

Cons: Noisy at speed, needs a bit more power.
