    My current car is getting a bit long in the tooth now, so i bit the bullet and ordered a new one today..



    Audi A1 S Line competition 40 TFSI S tronic.
    Probably a bit extravagant as i only use my car once a week to go food shopping and ride a bike the rest of the time, but what the hell, why not.
    It’s not the fastest thing on the road, but as long as it gets me to Waitrose and back i’ll be a happy chap.

    Absolutely Gary, life's too short. Remember, there were people on the Titanic that said "no" to the sweet trolley... The A1 looks great. I had an A3 S-Line and I couldn't fault it. Never missed a beat in 3 years, not even a blown bulb. Is that the colour you're getting? I like it.

    Yup, thats the colour i'm getting. Should pick it up in a couple of weeks, and a week after that my new Z900 will have arrived
    I did consider the yellow paint with some nicer wheels, but i'm really not one to draw attention to myself on the road with a car that looks like its crashed through Halfords front window.
    It'll crack 0-60 in 6.5 seconds and that'll do for me.

    We purchased an A1 2 months ago, but only the 35 TFSI, and love it. We don`t do many miles and thought it adequate for our needs. It still has plenty of pep, 150 ps I think, so I`m sure you will enjoy yours.

    Wish me luck (I think...) I have a very good friend who is in the classic car motor trade who will be proxy bidding for me tomorrow - if the car is as good as it looks. I fully don't expect to end up winning the auction at what I am prepared to spend, but if I do, it will be a bargain, and you never know...?

    Hmm, 5 Litre. That'll be the 301 block then. Looks very nice.
