May give you an idea, my 1.8t does between 26-35mpg depending on if you are on a foot to floor drive or just crusing on the motorway,

I average about 28-30mpg. And when on 3 cylinders about 15mpg.

The 'constant' mpg reading is quite scary though! switch that on and give it a boot full then it sometimes might go down to 10 Audi S3 - Page 2 Icon_redface

The tax isn't too much but thats because its old enough to miss out on the newer tax bands..

as for insurance Audi S3 - Page 2 795435

Gave the ol' girl a clean today, my camera seems to be playing up at the minute though isnt focusing as well as it used to Audi S3 - Page 2 Icon_rolleyes

Also laminex'd my front fogs.. havent quite grown on me yet but its an easy enough job to take off if i dont like. Audi rings have been painted black for a while now but never botherd to take a photo till today.

oh well don't like to bore anyone too much! i know i'd much rather read about some mk1/2 golf or caddy project than a fairly bog standard rep-mobile Audi S3 - Page 2 Lol

It was staying standard Audi S3 - Page 2 Lol but it might still stay that way, depends how well i can save/how much i can earn!

Also spotted this while polishing it Audi S3 - Page 2 496877 had never noticed it untill then Audi S3 - Page 2 Icon_eek Looks like rust, feels like rust, can only really be rust Audi S3 - Page 2 795435 I thought these things were galvanised bodies?? Audi S3 - Page 2 298631

Looks like it would stick out a mile in the pic but in reality you wouldnt see it unless like i did you was going over every inch of the car with polish.

Its on the NS edge of the roof incase anyone couldnt make out where it is.

Was playing around last night with an L200 an old shape one, it turned into a session of syncronised drifting untill he turned off to fordham. No idea who it was but he was having fun.

Yeah it hasnt thawed out much at all if any. Dont think its been above freezing all day. And the ol' quattro is great love it! its not doing my mpg much good atm though just driving about in like 3rd gear all the time, have used 1/4 tank and have basicly just been up the town centre a couple of times Audi S3 - Page 2 298631
