    My car

    Reliability is excellent though running costs are a little on the high side. The car is supposed to have 180bhp but does not feel like it - maybe a extra 20 - 30 bhp would have been more like it as this car was in the £27,000 bracket.

    Basically, a very good car which holds its value quite well.

    A wolf in sheeps clothing. The 180bhp is very well delivered. Try it, you will like it and you will leave the latter 1.8T (150bhp) is your wake.

    My car

    A great car, apart from suspension problems.

    It's got a creaking lower suspension arm again. It's already had two recalls for checks on these and I had to pay nearly £200 the last time and probably the same again.

    The car is six years old and I have had it since new.

    My car

    Although this is a somewhat unexciting-looking car it has one major advantage!? Quality of build! It is possible to throw a brick at the dash board and controls and, hey presto, still intact.

    Many cars have pretty interiors and stunning visual looks but who can say that any Audi, no matter how old it is, is an UGLY looking car. It's plain Jane. A mildly attractive model that somehow has huge appeal. To put it bluntly, "I wouldn't mind becoming aquainted with that model", if only to get to compare the pantyhose that others have to offer. If the model fits with little makeup, well then the model fits.

    Now let's burst the bubblegum of reality and explain the pitfalls of owning an Audi. Service, customer care and, on occasion, downright rudeness. Let me explain. My car is a 1997 1.6 model. It seems that those at Audi see me as the low of the low. It's not a Quattro to begin with, it does not have an engine capacity of more than 2.0 litres. Therefore am I poor?

    Maybe I am a sensible motorist with concern about the environment that I live in? Either way each and every customer deserves the same level of common courtesy. I have to say that I did not receive the attention that is equivalent to the quality build of their cars.

    The question is, will I buy an Audi again? Yes is the answer. The new A6 voted best car in the world, well Audi got their public relations right. Can they possiibly achieve the same with their customers? Watch this space because I am sure to tell
