“Audi A3, S-Line 1.6 Tdi”

I have always liked Audi A3s and finally decided to go for it and buy one last March. I was initially looking at a brand new factory order but after finding out there was a 9 month lead time on factory orders, decided to look at the second hand market. I searched using the Audi website approved...

I never thought I would write a review about a car but as time is passing by, I am getting braver and braver. I am no car expert, but think people sometimes want to read a real user’s opinion instead of just the professional jargon. I have had this car for some time now, have driven approx. 25...

Build Quality, Comfort, Handling, Residual Value

Little lacking in Power for motorway driving.

OK, it's been a long time since I've been on here to write up a review, but since I use Ciao a lot for finding out other peoples opinions I felt it only right to share mine. Particularly when it comes to you shelling out your hard earned reddies on something as expensive as a car. I'm not one for...

“Good Small Exec Hatch”

published 29/11/2000

Looks, image

High insurance group, cost of parts

I owned an Audi 1.6 Sport for a year back in 1998, and overall found it to be a good alternative to the other hatchbacks available. I was originally considering a VW Golf (essentially the same car under a different guise), but was swayed by the looks and slightly more responsive handling of the...

Expensive to buy and maintain. High Insurance

It is actually my Mum who owns the car. I have had my fair share of driving it though. The whole car is really easy on the eye. Interior build qulity is fantastic. Hard seats, and with the sport option, you get sports seats, leather gearnob and steering wheel, Electric sunroof, 15 inch alloys and...

“Audi A3”

published 13/05/2011

Holds value and looks great

Expensive and theres a lot of them around

Audi is a car manufacturer that has always been known for its quality. I think they are certainly worth the extra money for the comfort and quality which the small A3 S line certainly has. From the outside the S3 is a cut about the lower models with lots of extra detail; I particularly like the...

Build quality, finish, driving

Toys, cost of OEM parts.

The AUDI A3 1.6 is one of the best small to medium cars around. Buying a 2nd hand car like I did is probably the best value. The general build quality of the car is 2nd to none, even for the 1.6 whcih is pretty near the bottom of the range. When you get in to one of these you feel secure and safe...

First and foremost, do your research, I bought my car in October 2003 from a second hand dealer advertised in the newspaper for £8695, whilst on my search saw the same car advertised over the Internet for £8400, finally managed to negotiate a price of £8200 once informing the dealer of my ability...

I bought an Audi A3 1.6SE 3 door after saving for years. I was soooo excited when it came on a big lorry from Audi. The delivery man was very well dressed and gave me a demonstration of the vehicle and informed me what all the gadgets and buttons did on the inside. We even had a tour of the...

Build quality and Badge

High insurance, underpowered, expensive parts.

I saw the Audi A3 as my dream car, and finally i got one. I was so pleased with the way the car drove, how secure it felt on the road and the way it looked. The build quality was excellent; solid, just how an audi should be, and you really feel like you've made the right choice. All my friends...

I have owned my Audi A3 1.6 since 2003 and its on an S plate. I managed to pick up an ex courtesy car model from JCT 600 with only 15000 miles on the clock and a few little upgrades from the base model. By far and away this is the smoothest drive i have ever had. Dont get me wrong if you want a...

The journey started in June 2008, when i took the plunge and decided to order a brand new Audi A3, 1.6 S-Line. I was undecided on what colour to get, as nearly all my previous cars had been black and being a car cleaning fanatic, this colour really does come up well, however, the new craze of...

“good looking comfortable car”

small size, easy parking, easy driving

none

Audi A3 1,6. In my opinion this car is very comfortable to drive. Specially for women this is very handy because of its size. The size of the car is perfect for women compared to an Audi A4. which could be the same motor size of 1,6 but is still very large. From my point of view the available...

It's not a Golf

Black takes a lot of polishing

I have just purchased my first Audi and am so far delighted. Friends all said I should get a Golf basically the same car but a lot cheaper.But then everyone and his auntie has a Golf, and I think they are just too tame and bland. My A3 goes like a little rocket,has great nifty pockets and fab...

sluggish

I got my Audi a couple of years ago. It's a T reg. I quite like it really- it's a nice sort of blue that you don't see much on new cars (cornflower blue), it's reliable, and gets me from A to B. OK- it'll never beat anyone at the lights but you can give them a run for their money. Mine had no CD...
