Purely out of interest, is your A1 the first Audi you have owned.

Personally I have owned a total of 11 so far ranging from my first Audi 80 Sport in 1985, through an Audi 80 1.8E, an Audi 90 2.3E and seven Audi A3s including four 1.8T and 2.0TDI-140-PD, a 2.0TDI-170-PD and now my current 2.0TDI-140-CR Sportback that has been remapped to around 175. Before the Audi's I had four Golfs, three of which were GTi's and between the early Audi's and the A3s I had a Golf VR6 2.3.

My wife is current on her fourth VW Polo and now has a new A1 1.6TDI-SE on order for delivery in early October.

Also I have only recently been a member of the A1 Forum, I have been a member of Audi-Sport.Net which cover all Audi models since January 2003.

Placed a factory order for an A1 yesterday; my current car is a Peugeot 106. Before that I had driven an employer Audi for a brief period.

And weren't you a mod on there for a while, as well? I'm a member too, since ordering my previous car - an A3 1.8 S-Line with nearly as many options as my A1 - three years ago, but was never as active on there as I've been on here ;)

Before the A3 it was a Honda Accord and before that a very long run of Vauxhalls: 3 GTEs, 1 GSi (the fastest and least well sorted of all the Vauxhalls I owned), 3 Calibras (including 1 that went back after only 3 months), and a Vectra. The Vectra was the only the 2nd second-hand car I've ever owned and had to be bought after the final Calibra caught fire!

Been lurking for the last couple of weeks. Currently own a Seat Leon and have been looking at the A1 or a VW Scirocco, anyway...

Those who've had Audi before, how does the quality of the A1 matchup to other Audi models?

Thanks

First time Audi owner.

Mojito why do you have so many A2 in your list? Do you have some kind of "long term" renting in your country?
And you are not the only one, the other user on page 1 had eight A3's!
I don't get it why you have so many equal cars lol

I've driven more cars, but the ones I can really call mine were:

02 VW Polo 1.2 (pretty safe, very good build quality, super confortable, no pothole was enough to defeat it or create rattles)
98 Renault Twingo 1.2 (so much fun! so much power on a paper basket! Bad brakes, very confortable)
09 Seat Ibiza Style 1.9 TDI (good looking car but a total rubbish in quality, rattles everywhere and other problems. Loved the engine, loads of power and strenght, also very economical)
11 Audi A1 Sport 1.6 TDI (I just love those gadgets, hate the sports suspension as it makes the ride too hard)
:mrgreen:

Get my first Audi on 1st September. Can't wait!

'86 Escort XR3i - first car, loved it.
'91 Fiesta XR2i - loved it and it didn't leak!
'98 Saxo VTS - At the hight of my "MAX Power" years.
'51 206CC (not sure what happened here!)
'55 Subaru Impreza WRX - Best car I've ever owned. Broke my heart to sell it.
'09 Mondeo (Kids!)

...and yes, I am an Essex boy!

Zero, the reason for the A2's was the low running costs... £20 road tax and Alu body meant prices stayed high on the TDI's. I bought and sold a few and made 5k profit.

The A2 is a great car, i may even buy another in the future for the wife.

Cool cars Bennie Boy, haha ;)
