Still going strong after 15 years
Hi just updating my previous review, Now owned this car for over 6 years, Car is coming up to 15 years old (2007 3.2FSI Quattro) this year and never failed an MOT while I have owned it, only Fail prior to me owning was a number plate light not working. Car still looks new, Aluminium body doesn't rust, and Paint polishes up very nice, (Phantom Black Metallic) Still turns heads and always getting comments on its condition, I owned a 2001 A8 prior to this one had that for 8 years, wasn't sure when I bought the car if it would be as good as the previous model, but it has been really great buy and is used as a daily driver, really glad I chose it, has outlasted all my friends cars and been far more reliable. As I stated before car is expensive on road tax but my insurance is really cheap so it evens out. It is still great to take on long runs with family providing lots of room for passengers and luggage, quite a rare car now very rarely see another on a journey, driving around town is very easy but can find some problems parking up, although not a long wheel base version it is still a big car and some car parks are a little tricky to use. Mine looks like the car from the Transporter films, So just left everything as I bought it, W12 Alloys and badges etc. Although a V6 3.2fsi you cant really tell the difference. Hope it lasts for many more years as I don't want to change it. only repairs I have done have been a new coolant pipe, Oil pump (very easy to change) water ingress to rear lights has been resolved (common problem through out this model range) and general wear items like brake discs, pads and tyres.
3 YEARS ON AND STILL RUNS SUPERB, WOULD BUY AGAIN
Great family car Plenty of room and comfort, have owned this one for 3 years, Easy to drive once you master the MMI controls, feels lighter and smaller when on the road, had very minor common problem with condensation in rear lights, mines Black with W12 alloys so always get comments about the Transporter films, Road Tax can be very expensive but insurance is cheap for me , get very good MPG for size of car and Quattro system is great in winter. I would buy this car again,
I love Audi?s
Perfect for day to day activities. I feel so stylish and lucky! Everybody who wants one should go out and buy one because it?s the best purchase.
