2015 Audi S1 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

An honest little car! With a simple software upgrade (REVO, ABT etc) it goes up to 300+ HP and then becomes a serious performer as it should have been if the marketing people of AUDI did not want it to compete directly with S3 which is 25% more expensive. The Quattro works perfectly and the feeling is of a fast car. Handling is as good as you would expect...

2011 Audi A4 2.0 TDI Review

I've owned the 2011 A4 B8 2.0 TDi since October 2013. When I bought it it had 22,000km which was a major selling point for me. Prior to purchasing it I test drove a 2011 BMW 328i and a 2009 Mercedes C200 Kompressor. The BMW I didn't like all that much due to its heavy steering and slightly boring interior, I did however like the GPS unit, and the bi-xenon headlights...

2014 Audi A3 1.4 TFSI Review

  Great build quality and beautifully finished. Exceptional economy and surprising performance from the 1.4 L. Have been averaging under 6l/100km on long trips and under 8 around town. Acceleration and overtaking performance is amazing and comparable if not better than our previous SP23 Mazda. Economy is far better than the Mazda though...

2013 Audi A4 1.8 TFSI Review

The Audi A4 1.8t is a real sleeper. Build quality and materials are bullet proof and provides a comfortable, quiet driving environment. While the 1.8t provides a flexible power source with great torque for city driving and spirited overtaking and hill climbing in the country. The turbo constantly puts a smile on your face off the line and up any incline...

2013 Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Amb Review

This top of the line A3 series model comes with 1.8 engine but it was the best compromise, not too powerful for my wife and not too weak for me. Still it does 0 to 100 km/h under seven seconds as promised. When I retired our point was that the number of driving wheels must stay at four though we don’t need two cars any more. Now with 13 months and 20...

2014 Audi A3 1.4 TFSI Attraction Cod Review

I have recently taken ownership of the all new Audi A3 Cabriolet. Coming from a 2005 Mazda MX-5, I was looking for a sophisticated smooth ride whilst retaining the open air feel for summer. The A3 Cab delivers comfort, peppy performance in spades and I'm not really missing the MX-5 much at all...I thought I'd never be able to replace the experience of the legendary roadster...

2014 Audi S3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

After browsing the market for quite some time, I had decided on my next car - a bright red, Mercedes CLA 45 AMG. When the salesman turned the key and I heard the baby-racer spring into life, it was love. I had put down my deposit just before Christmas 2013, which meant an October 2014 delivery. Which got pushed back to January 2015, and then May 2015...

2014 Audi S3 Sportback 2.0 TFSI Quattro Review

I've only had the car for a week, so still learning all the features. One little annoyance is that it obviously favours Apple products, which I'd never touch. The usual problem is that there's no USB port to download music to the built-in storage. However, it takes SSD memory cards, so I download music to my camera, then put the SSD card in the car - nuisance - I don't know why they don't include a USB port...

2013 AUDI A6 ALLROAD QUATTRO LE Review

A big improvement over the C5 model but it has lost the "feel" of a car and is more of a mechanical computer. Ride is superb. performance terrific, handling composed, heavy and uninspiring giving the feeling that you can never do anything wrong. Difficult to manoeuvre in tight spaces as the car is much wider than the driver can see...

2007 Audi S3 Review

Great little second hand premium purchase. Great fuel economy for the performance average about 9L per 100 with a good amount of spirited driving. With plenty of power on tap when you sink the right foot in, but nowadays with new turbo technology some people will get a little annoyed with the turbo lag as nothing really happens till 2500 rpm...

2012 AUDI A3 SPORTBACK 1.6 TDI ATTRACTION Review

I have owned two Audi A3 1.6 TDIs now, and both have had issues. The first one suffered bad issues with its engine and dual-clutch (DSG) automatic transmission, with the car later being replaced by Audi for low cost. The second has had similar gearbox and engine issues. It's also had some issues with servicing, with a lot of work being done on the vehicle with no success...
