If you get the sport with sports suspension those miles will seem short because of all the fun you will be having!

You'll love the TDI - espescially if you are the one paying to fill it up.
My best tank was 66mpg - mainly motorway and late nights.
Even on my normal commute, I'm getting high 50's (into London half of it motorway)

You will not be quick from the lights - but in second / third gear it can still be fun. AND I still get 50mpg :cool:

Agree with everyone else, not quick from a standstill, but a fair bit of torque through 2nd and 3rd and it cruises nicely on the motorway. I do about 100 miles a day in it all motorway and I'm not tired after the drive.

Hi All,

Finally my A1 received yesterday, quite good in few drives, good control, but facing two problems

1. Feeling more vibration when my foot while toucing clutch.
2. Bit finding hard drive due to sport suspension, I expected some but not this like, as I was driving almost 150 miles in two days. It may be difficult for me to continue with Sports Suspension. I need to drive for some more days. But any idea how much costs it will take to change to Dynamic Suspension.

Appreciate if any of you could respond based on your experience.

Thanks
Venkat

Its bad on the bumpy roads in stafford and inside city. Good on Motor ways. So have to drive for more days and let see else need to decide change from sports suspension to dynamic. I am not sure about the cost but need some indication from the previous experience ppl.
