    New Car Day

    Traded in the A6 Avant today for a smaller yet just as nice version, a 162 A3 Sline saloon, We are moving back to Dublin so needed a smaller car for the wife to drive and park as we sold hers to fund our deposit.

    Really impressed with the car and solid service from Stephen in Audi Ballina who brought the car down for me to test drive last week and delivered it back down today.

    Ex Audi Ireland fleet car -162 reg - had an arguement with a pillar on Driver side but great repair and brought purchase price down too.

    Loved the A6 avant, would go for auto though as I had manual. Bags of space and even the 2.0 was plenty powerful. Paid 35k in march last year, got 25k on trade in but had put up 80k odd in the year so was expecting it to be honest. Was a 131 car

    She is a 1.6 TDI, warranty until 2019 so remap may be off the cards. Might plastidip the wheels an anthracite colour for the minute. Defo the ones Brian mentioned are on the cards, look great.

    Yes any good wheels now get lock nut and tape it up somewhere in car so if they do break in it's not in boot or glove box make it as hard as you can for the scum
