I've defected to the dark side

Post by Plantjuk » Thu Aug 31, 2017 8:52 am

So having been a member on here for around 7-8 years having had 3 BMW's my wife is picking up our new car today, we only went to look at a Q3, the Q3 looked a bit old inside compared to the rest of the range though and as the Mrs was after an SUV we looked at the Q2. The only problem was the price was coming in around 34-35 grand with a few options making it nearly 7 grand more than we payed for the M135i.
My wife then fell in love with the edition 1 version and as luck would have it there was a Q2 edition 1 that was in stock due to a customer cancellation, it had heated seats, tech pack (bigger central display and virtual cockpit) heated seats, dual zone climate and folding mirrors. We managed to bag a deal on it but the only downside is as the dealer needed to sell it this month to get their quota in so it will be a 17 plate and not a 67 but the deal we got made it worth it as Audi are only giving about 2 grand off list price tops on these! Anyway here she is. We will be running this and the M135i for a bit and then look to sell the M135i. ImageImageImage

Now now Marco :lol: it's the special edition colour! Personally I love it, it's very close to the colour on the RS models.

It's based on the A3 platform I believe.

What's the difference between a q2 and q3 then if the q2 is also based on the mqb platform? Just size? Niche tastic Image

Mainly size I think, it's a bit more sleek and the interior is pretty much identical to the A3 where as we found the dash on the Q3 a little dated in comparison.

Lovely motor mate, love how clean it looks inside on the dash. I like the colour as said it looks close to the RS colour i've seen.
