  1. Have now ordered a FWD 1.5 TSFI Petrol Auto . Was impressed by test drive and as 2Litre Petrol was not due to come out for approx 6 months decided the 1.5 was enough for me and decided FWD would also be adequate for me .
  2. I am awaiting delivery of a new Q3 35 TSFI Auto FWD later this month . My current car is a 3 series BMW and I have used winter tyres each winter for past 9 years which are a huge benefit when we have snow although little need for them so far this winter . I was wondering if anyone has any experience of how a Q3 manages in snow and ICE with or without Winter tyres . I would obviously expect it to perform better than my RWD BMW but I have heard a RWD car with winter tyres will perform better than a FWD or even 4WD car on normal tyres . I am not surprised by this having seen how winter tyres transform my BMW's ability to cope in snow and ice . There is a good video on you tube showing a FWD caron winter tyres managing to climb an indoor ski slope better than its 4WD equivalent on summer rubber . I live in Scotland where we often get more snow and ice than further south .
  3. I am thinking of buying a new Q3 when they come out . Wondering between 1.5 Litre Petrol Auto with FWD or 2.0 Litre Petrol Auto with Quattro . I know some people swear by Quattro but I must admit I am a bit sceptical and wonder if they would genuinely notice the difference 99 percent of the time . In my work I am driven around in a Skoda Octavia Scout with 4WD and have questioned a lot of the drivers . Majority have said they don't really notice its 4WD and none of them really convince me they have genuinely noticed a difference . Some say things like " It holds the road well going round corners but then admit that their own FWD car holds the road well going round corners and they dont really see any definate difference , The 2 Litre Quattro woll be significantly more expensive to purchase and running cost higher ie fuel tyres insurance etc . The extra power would be nice though , just not sure Quattro would be nescessary or even noticable 99 % of the time . Interested to hear from anyone especially with experience of both systems
  4. Thinking of getting a new Q3 when it comes out or may just get a Q2 as a couple of family members have them and are happy with them . Will probably test drive first . Anyone got reliable info on Ground Clearance of these 2 cars as seem to get conflicting info on internet .
