    My car

    The 2 litre turbo engine with fsi is good with low end torque and very responsive. I have the longwheelbase version (15cm longer) so its really spacious inside and comfortable for everyone.

    Handling is quite sharp and agile since its not as nose heavy as the bigger engines. Add rear blinds, volterra leather, sunroof, MMI with 11 spkr system, headlight washers,alloy wheels,anti lift security sys. 8 airbags. There is no turbo lag at all and fuel economy is great (over 780km).

    My car

    This is a car that's good in most respects, apart from the overly stiff suspension, which can make driving on poor roads unpleasant.

    The only other gripe is the built-in Audi telephone: for anyone calling from a landline or mobile, it is more or less impossible to hear the person in the car.

    I also don't understand why the sat-nav is only a factory-fitted option, it would seem logical to put all the wiring in at the same time.

    My car

    I've owned the car for almost a year now and I have really enjoyed the way it accelerates from low speeds, especially when joining motorway traffic. The auto 'box is great and even more so when in sports mode.

    The dealers are a bit hit and miss in the way they deal with any problems, as I had to wait 12 weeks to get a broken ashtray fixed!

    Fuel economy is good as long as you keep below 80mph on long runs and the sat-nav is very good apart from it will cost £400 for the new upgrade in November for the Traffic Master disc.

    It's a shame that Audi with its sporty aspirations did not opt for 17" wheels as standard along with leather seats as the options list will make the car rather expensive to get it up to a decent level of equipment. But so far so good!

    My car

    I have just completed 10,000km with no problems at all. It's certainly the best car in our garage at the moment.

    One of the best things about the car is that when you do need to move quickly on wet slippery roads, especially from a standstill, the combination of torque and four-wheel drive makes it all too easy.

    The satellite-navigation is also the best I have come across. Instead of nagging the you to do a U-turn if you decide not to follow a direction, it quietly takes into account your action and replans the route.

    We also own a 2002 Benz C220 CDI, which, while good, still sounds like a diesel. Not so the Audi. Even at idle, it doesn't have that clatter, and if you press it hard, the engine actually has quite a good raucous note to it like a high-performance petrol engine.

    Fuel economy is every bit as good as we expected. We own a farm and having diesel cars means always having fuel if we need it. I don't like keeping large amounts of petrol in storage.

    If you like the look of the car, then just try the diesel and you'll be hooked.
