Great car, brilliant to drive, converted me to Audi
Radiator leaked, replaced with good used item.
Rear brake caliper seized, new part from Audi dealer fitted.
Drivers seat frame fractured (common problem on the older models), replaced with good used item.
Headlamp reflectors dulled (MOT failure), so replaced with good used units.
Various areas of corrosion to the bodywork as the models as old as mine were not galvanized.
Various very minor niggles throughout ownership, but generally very happy with it considering the mileage I covered and it being such an old car.
Was loaned this car whilst my own car was in for bodywork refurbishment and liked it so much I kept it!
An absolute delight to drive with superior road holding & rock solid build quality.
Lovely engine & pleasing V5 exhaust burble!
Surprisingly economical despite bing a performance saloon!
I normally drive automatic cars, but took to this manual transmission with no problems at all, very good gearbox & precise clutch action.
On return of my refurbished car I unfortunately had to sell the Audi and even now, dearly miss it. The new owner (who I know) has also fallen in love with it & really enjoys the drive and has had no problems at all after 6 months owned... touch wood!
Now seriously considering selling my refurbished Vauxhall & buying another Audi.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
