    My car

    I bought this car 4 months ago from an independent garage with 111,000 on the clock. It now has 115,000.

    As an ex-company car the history is all in order, interior is spotless, there's a few stone chips on the bonnet but still looks like a 30,000 mile example.

    It has an amazing engine, frightening performance, superb economy and luxuries like cruise and dual climate make this car the best one i have owned, and i've had over 20 different makes/models.

    My previous car was a W reg 1.8se Avant with 125bhp and the difference between these two cars is unbelievable.

    The mileage is high, but as I paid £4k less than a 40,000 example and the reputation Audi have for solid cars I think i found a bargain.

    Overall, a brilliant car and would recommend to all.

    Just shop around for service costs, as even Audi dealers vary greatly in repair and servicing.

    My car

    I'm a first time Audi owner (with a three and a half year old A4, 31,00 miles).

    The drive of this car is amazing, though at first quite frightingly fast - going from an Astra with less than half the power to this was a BIG leap!! But it is so easy, even though I am still getting used to the auto gearbox, it's like sitting in an armchair.

    It feels and looks like a new car.

    The load space is huge, but the space around the back seats is not massive - they should jig this around a bit and make more legroom as it is not easy to sit three adults or even teenagers.

    Obviously I haven't had it serviced yet, but a pair of windscreen wipers set me back £40. This is a lot.

    I've filled it up twice and averaged 38-40mpg, which seems good as it is a 2.5-litre engine.

    All in all, I'm very happy with it.

    My car

    Bought my 1st one with 4,000mls on the clock from a dealer and did 60,000 in 3 years. Economy superb! Go to the alps each winter, fill up in Calais, and drive there and around the mountains for a week before I have to fill-up again for the homeward journey. On long journeys have done over 700mls on a tank full. Sports seats great, most comfortable I've been in, don't move in a 2hr drive. Not so great in the back but I rarely go there. Kids don't complain. Road holding is like "you-know-what" on a blanket. Sports suspension hard on the cobbles and manhole covers but top on the motorways and lanes. Put 6k into the first one and got 9.5k out - great residual value. Bought my 2nd one 3 months ago. Went for multitronic, cruise, leather and I love it to bits. Cruise is really impressive on long trips, less tiring! It looks great and need to use sport selector or shift on hills, but it still performs as well as the manual, and that engine is so "torky" it must have been designed for the mountains. Really like the gearbox - smooth, silent changes in drive, but don't think it will be as economical as the manual. May struggle with snow chains on the 17ins, 235's and the spoiler on the rear screen is going to snag on my roof box. Top vehicle!

    My car

    Best most comfortable (sports seats) car I have ever owned.Sports suspension and 18" wheels keep the car absolutely glued to the road with turn-in superb(a little understeer when pushing).Ride firm but seats make up for it.Have had four up with golf clubs,tight but possible.Quality of interior superb and the exterior looks were a big factor when purchasing.Always a joy to travel in. One biggie mistake keeps the 5th star away.The multi-tronic gearbox when on the move is faultless BUT sooo lazy when trying to make a quick getaway.I have learned to drive around this fault but I would not like the car in the cut and thrust of city driving(lucky I do very little of this).Car is the 1.9tdi 130.I like it so much I am keeping it.
