Well, if it were me, I'd go for the Audi, for the following reasons;
  • Its less likely to have led a hard life
  • There are more of them - better choice means more deals/better spec
  • More economical
  • Larger, so better for rear occupants/luggage
  • You can always 'chip' the diesel and the performance difference will be insignificant
  • I know they are both made by the same parent company, but the Audi will carry more prestige than a VW
Just my own thoughts, best of luck with what you decide.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
