2005 Audi A3 Sportback 1.6L petrol


Shiny silver sensible hatchback that does not age well in the tropical heat


Air conditioning rebuilt.

Various bits of suspension rubbers changed.

General Comments:

Massively underpowered. Chassis can handle lots of power!

Was an attempt to play the COE system. But in end the PQP COE was too high.

Audi rubber suspension parts do not age well (in tropical heat of Singapore).

Wonderful posh leather interior.

Used to own a TT and an A6. I bought the A3 Sportback as a mini version of an Audi estate (same 5 doors as an A6 and A4 Avant).

The engine was too small to do it justice. But a good car as a car. But no good as a fast Audi.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
