Hi Everyone.

Today was the day!

I traded my 2004 Scenic 1.5dci in today for an Audi A4 Avant 1.9 tdi 130 se. After all the paperwork had been completed at the garage I was ready to take my Audi home.

I felt all excited walking upto the A4 and some sadness in parting with my Scenic as I had done many trips to France with her and although they are not very reliable I had no faults with mine over 4 years, I will miss the panoramic opening glass roof and 70mpg, along with automatic lights,wipers and handbrake, at this point I was wondering have I done the right thing here?

However when I walked upto the A4 and shook hands with the door handle I knew I was onto a good thing. Once I set the seat,mirrors, steering wheel and s elected 1st gear I was amazed at how quiet and smooth everything worked and how precise the switchgear was, the firm click of the indicator stalk was a world removed from my newer Renault. Up through the gears checking the revs,speed,engine temp as I drove a favorite route that included fast A roads,country lanes and motorways to my home, which I had done in lots of cars before, 200 sx,pulsar,106 gti, 205gti,309 goodwood etc, What a car this has to be one of the oldest cars I have bought but it one of the best. so smooth,good driving position,great stereo,easy to see out, feels secure and most of all I managed 54mpg. This car is fantastic. I am looking forward to going back to work on Thursday so I can give her a nice motorway run.

Anyway I am very pleased with my purchase, attached are some pics.

Andrew.

No pics? You need to upload them to photobucket or the like and paste the IMG code into your message here.

That looks immaculate! Love that first pic - nice views too. [Y]

Is it liquid blue? We've had a few that colour recently - I like it.

Thanks for the nice comments guys, I have only had the audi since 12.noon today so more polishing to be done on Wednesday.

The location is looking over towards Loch Leven in Fife, I always go there to photo my cars on the day I get them !!

Here are some others.



















Thats only a few of my old cars, I must be getting old now running a tdi with no rear spoiler!! that might change though.

All you need to do now is re-map it.

I wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do but it's probably the best thing you can do to the car. I have the 130PD engine and i've justed re-mapped it to 170BPH and its so much easier to drive, and if you think 54MPG was good you should see an increase afterwards. I get an extra 5MPG out mine now.

Nice car though mate.....loving the colour

Thanks Guys, I am going to ask Jim at Star Performance here in Fife, what re-map can do.

After that I will have the rear windows tinted and new alloys. Thanks for your comments Guys,

Andrew.
