Lack of potential sales I'd have thought. Not too many Quattro Audi's around Ireland might explain why? I'm purely guessing though tbh

Weirdly the two audi owners i know are quattro owners!

@pred are three beep normal on A c5 if you take a corner too tight? Back driving and making a list of what the mechanic needs to look at when it gets serviced

Omg the freedom of being able to drive!!!

Because they're committed to remaining a primarily RWD focused brand?, IIRC there was something to that effect posted by them on facebook recently enough too

More audis are being sold Quattro these days I think, but alot of the older ones seemed to be Quattro was an expensive extra if memory serves me right.
Don't think the xi models ever even sold here at all.

They said it wasn't worth their while to spend their money on developing RHD x models due to the very limited market.

Already has been two, the Rover 75 and MINI. In other news, Pina Coladas are tastier at noon. Well, I've been drinking them since 1130, but that's a mere detail. Not driving today. Well, not a motorised vehicle at any rate.

There is - a 1 series - will be cheaper, apparently. They determined that people buying the 1 series didn't really know (or care) which end was driving the car.

thinking of changing my car in a month or so, will only be traveling a five minute commute to work so it doesn't justify having a diesel Audi A4 1.9TDI. I will be traveling less than 1000 mile a month all in.
Very max budget 4k min engine size 1.6 max 2.0.
no older than 2003
No more expensive to insure than what I have at the moment.
any ideas?
I was thinking a subaru impreza 1.6.

1.6`s Impreza`s are not only slow but they are very thirsty, avoid like the plague. PS I love Subarus btw
