Hi and welcome on AlfaOwner.com
Like it says...AlfaOwner wink
So I am not sure if there are some members here with Audi experience.
A colleague of mine got to choose a new car too. The same time as me.
He chose the Seat Leon Topsport TDI (150 BHP)
I went for the 147 1.9 JTD 16V (140 BHP)
And still I am taking the ****** out of him. Like, if he is parking his car next to his trailer (no offense to anyone I hope) and why did he choose such a common unpersonal car etc etc.
So I was about to tell you the same wink
Why go for german? Quit a common car, al representatives drive one (at least here in Holland) and most of ICT Consultants as well.
Go for taste, design, a car with personality, a beautifull "voice", great handling and join the biggest, warmest, cosiest, funniest family of all.
So put the A3 out of your mind and go for the 147!
Still this is no answer to your question
SOrry can't help you on the A3 But take a peak at this
. You migth find your answer here.
