Why the 2006 Audi A3?

Exterior styling

The lines are smooth, elegant, and just down right good looking. They managed to take a 5 door wagon, shrink it to a size smaller than a 4 door sedan, and make it look stunning. Some people are surprised when I open the hatch.

Cargo capacity

I can fit an entire twin sized air mattress in the back. I have slept in it while camping. Tons of cargo room with the seats up or down. You can even remove the back seat bottom so when you fold the seats they are totally flat!

Fuel economy

I have the APR Stage 2 chip with a catless downpipe. Putting down about 235hp and 250tq. On a recent 250 mile each way trip I got 28mpg at 70mph. Going up many hills and possibly passing some people with my foot on the floor. TL;DR V6 power with 2.0 mpg.

Powertrain performance

Stock the car is good. But add a chip, and wow its crazy fast. I got the stage 2 chip from APR. And I have a catless downpipe. It dropped the 0-60 by atleast a second. If not more. And the DSG is awesome. 8ms upshifts and rev matched downshifts all day :)

Brand reputation & image

I love pulling into a parking lot and having the nicest car. Audi brings respect.
