Stlylish workhorse

Bought as 2nd owner with full Audi service history and 115k on clock now 166k
Good points- still returns good economy steady 65 will get 55mpg plus -extremely practical with boot area useful size -interior still looks cool and seats comfortable - engine pulls well very tractable- as an estate design looks contemporary and in liquid blue with 5 star alloys is still easy on the eye- firm suspension gives good feel on bends and rides nicely on well surfaced roads and motorways also quiet inside.

Bad points
Front arches prone to rusting - Audi blamed stone chips etc but too many seen for this to be true
Rear wiper motor replaced - common fault -replaced front wings due to rust
Air con units play up or stop functioning - another common fault
Alternator failed
Flywheel and clutch replaced
Interior paint on switches peel or scratch easily.

Overall I've had to spend more than I would of expected but now runs very well and I'm reluctant to sell but want a newer model.
