The mpg described in the advert when I bought it was very misleading. It's new so I've not needed any spare parts but the extras I bought at time of purchase were pricey, but good quality.

Excellent car (third a3 i've owned) let down by unreliable alarm system when new. Eventually fixed under warranty after i threatened to follow the 'sale of goods' route. The problem led to a redesign of the alarm software on all new a3 and tt audis.

The car is excellent, almost the best purchase i have ever made, the arrogance and rip off prices of the franchised dealer service department is the only poor experience i have had. Worrying they don't seem to know how the service regimes work for their own vehicles!!

Very happy, does exactly what i expected it to do, just a shame it is not a little bigger as i struggle to pull my caravan comfortably. Also hatch back style boot is not as good as a proper 'estate' boot for access and loading.

Price of Diesel has gone up more than I'd hoped, but I get a reasonable mpg. Servicing intervals are long and tyres (Michelin) last well.
