We’ve had the current 2013 A1 1.4tfsi Sport for six years now, in all that time she has raised the mileage from 12K to a massive 32K. Had no issue with it other than some dodgy paintwork when we collected the car, sorted reasonably quickly. We saw that Audi were doing some deals on new A1s, so did some research (my favourite past time apparently) and spoke to the dealer on Saturday. After some really annoying salesperson cock ups, they quoted finance on the wrong car and then wondered why we didn’t want it, a deal was done by Sunday. Hopefully it will be delivered in 7-10 days as the unregistered car is in group stock. The new car will be kept for the duration of the finance and then bought, as Mrs W does with her cars. It’s a 21 plate A1 Sportback 30TFSI Sport. Quite a mouthful for a small car. Unbelievable technology and basis spec on the Sport, it’s a midrange so doesn’t have the crash SLine suspension. Apple CarPlay as standard (can you hear that BMW...??) lane departure, radar emergency brake, park sensors, DAB, sport seats, lumbar support (can you hear that BMW...??), digital dash, etc. And for a reasonably small car on the outside it has a good interior space. I’m 6’ tall and can sit comfortably in the back, for those times when I’m in trouble. The new engine is a three cylinder 1.0 but manages to put out 110bhp or so, reasonable torque for one so small, plenty enough to zip around town. Went for metallic Glacier white, optional spare wheel and also for the paint protection thrown in for free due to the mess up. We shall see if that is any better than the last rubbish. The first thing Mrs W will do is hand the keys and her phone over to me and get me to set the tech up! Will update with commentary and photos when it is delivered. Not quite a Cayenne GTS or Fezza, but exciting enough for Mrs W.
