Mine handles like it's on rails. The only thing letting it down currently are the standard tyres which are pretty crappy in the wet...

I'm currently running KW V2 Coilovers, Ultra Racing upper strut brace and lower front bar/member brace. Going to upgrade my arbs and bushes sometime this year...

I have had my 1.4 sport auto for just under 2 weeks. I traded in my much loved 2.5 tdi A4. So the A4 was big and comfy which I used to describe as putting on ones favourite pair of shoes . Not going to set the world alight but was just a nice place to be that did every thing well. Went to see friends the other night 60 miles away through the twisty country lanes of the Sussex countryside. I found myself throwing it into bends with a big grin on my face, a bit like a go kart, perhaps but great fun, i was more concerned about my driving skills than the cars ability to handle it. One of the best things for me was the very supportive seats on the A1 sport. I used to slide all over the place on the A4's leather seats but am held securely and comfortably in place on the A1. Sad to see the A4 go (it felt like an old friend) but no regrets.
