I've had so many people ask questions about my car! First day at work, i have to go through security to get onto the airfield. Came out from being scanned etc, and 2 security guards were sat in it! One of them today told me he's looking to buy one now! :roll:

I've had varying opinions on the contrast line. a 50/50 split i'd say, but either way i'm getting a LOT of looks and "turn arounds" when i drive past. I've still only seen one other on the roads around here, but know there are a fair few more around looking at the number waiting to be collected last Tuesday.....

How are people finding others reactions? I'm quite suprised so far!!

I get questioned what model Audi is it, since I've got the model designator removed. I just tell them its an A1.....any more questions and I tell them to Step Off, and Jog On. ;)

It's a head turner all right. My s line has had some great comments. Everyone loves it. I've just not stopped smiling since I picked it up on the 1st.

Sorry to hear someone tried to steal your pride and joy - did they damage it etc?
Some people just can't handle others having something nice.

That's very bad... they should know better than to "hang around" like that. If I was at the wheel I would have thought they were wanting me to pull over.

I've mainly had looks from A3 drivers and blokes walking with the family having a prolonged look.

I don't think very many people take any notice of mine. The odd sideways glance from A3 and Golf drivers maybe. Last week, our Receptionist told me that 3 businessmen were taking a good look around mine in the car park - but that's about the only time I've known mine to really draw attention.

I expected Mini drivers to stare, but they don't. I am wondering if that says something about the kind of person who typically drives a mini - e.g. girls in the their twenties - LOL!

The looks must mainly be for S-Lines with the Xenon lights!

Found a Black SE basic spec in my company car park today. That combo really does it no favours - I thought it was an A3 at first...

I was driving the car the day after I picked it up, when a couple of young girls in the car behind me were taking a photo of the car! I've had several long looks at the car, mainly from young people. Nice to think at least the car is hip even if I'm not! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
