    Yep...I totally agree on the outlook that nothing else will be as good. I had an A4 Sline before so would be ok with another but I do like the styling of the Black Editions.

    All I need to do now is find a decent indy nearby and then start pulling money together so I can make a purchase later in the year.

    If you like the saloon it's worth looking at the A8. About the same size and better spec as standard.
    Current- S3 Sportback Nav S-tronic, Mythos Black, B & O, Comfort Pack, Lumbar Support, Lunar Silver interior.

    Thanks Scott.

    I had a look. Not sure about the size being similar but the styling isn't quite to my taste until about 2015...and that's then too expensive for me

    I wondered if anyone could give me an idea on monthly running costs?

    Mileage wise I'll be doing around 10k per year so I'm guessing around one and a half tanks of fuel per month, a service every 19k miles would be almost every 2 years (approx £300 per service?). Insurance, around £350 and tax around £150.
    Does this sound reasonable?

    Depends on the gearbox. S tronic needs a service every 38k so that service will be about £700. Also a sunroof adds costs to servicing. You go onto fixed price service costs after 3 years and those costs are all on the Audi site. At 3 years you will have mot and brake fluid change. Set of tyres every 2 years as well (depending on driving style, type of tyres, size).

    Thanks Scott.
    I had no idea on the price of S Tronic servicing so did a search. Sytner Audi do S Tronic oil and filter change for £175. Audi site says £225. Thank god for that...£700 would've been a deal breaker I think! lol
    MOT and brake fluid I can handle....tyres...yeah...probably every couple of years.

    I also found an indy garage in north of Glasgow which seems to be ok although I've never used it. Reviews seem fairly positive so I could use there and the costs would be less than Audi dealer.

    Another question.....

    I see some models are listed as 204bhp, some as 245bhp and some as 272bhp.
    Why is there a difference? Is it dependent on the year? or something else?

    They changed in 2015 at same time as face lift:
    204 - 218 PS
    245 - 272 PS
    313 - 320 PS

    BTW, think Scott K meant that service would be £700 including 38k service/oil change and 38k gearbox service.

    Cheers Ian....that price for the engine service too makes more sense.

    And thanks for the info on engine power

    Didn't mean to scare you, I meant the total cost for the major service including the s tronic would be about £700!! For you it would only be about every 4 years so not too bad.
