    Talking Audi A3 First Impressions

    Pre-Ordered In August. delivered yesterday
    First Impressions:Audi A3 First Impressions -1514204
    Excellent ride, with dual clutch and 07 speed s-tronic you wont feel the gear changes at all. 180hp power shows itself when you put your foot down, compact yet very powerful and beautiful (new Leds and body shape, lines do make it look better than a4 & other old gen cars in Pakistan) . Quite spacious, I am 5'11" and i felt very comfortable in the back however 03 people in the back wont be a very good idea for long ride unless one of them is a kid.
    features wise: 10 way powered seats with 04 way lumbar support. Leather interior, leather steering wheel, New MMI is amazing and offer excellent features, info & is very ease to browse through menus. 10 speakers 180w sound is really impressive. All the basic level luxury features are there like weather control, interior lighting, keyless boot opening, parking assist with sensors on the back, 07 Airbags etc etc. you don't have to spend a single dime above 4.5 million.
    This car offers one of the best value for money deals, period. If you are thinking of buying it, just do it.

    i cant make up my mind which one should i go for.
    I am drifted more towards the merc because its a rwd and has better styled exterior.

    This is the only reason i dont like in Audi for being fwd, anyhow 2 yrs old merc with no warranty or brand new A4 cheaper than c180cgi with 2 yrs warranty. If u booked A4 now it will take around 3-4 months and if u buy from Japan auction take around 45 days to reach the Khi port

    Shahnawaz cars are actually better though not in options as you can't get distronic but can get other options but at a very high cost
    Shahnawaz cars are raised by 15mm from the factory and also have a hot climate pack with up rated AC capacity for Pakistan rest is the same
    I would prefer the warranty and suitability for Pakistan of a Shahnawaz car anyday over a grey import but only if at that price it's suits your budget
    Normally with all options there becomes a significant price difference and ordering custom takes time
    The c classes they have in stock only have basic options like memory seats and panoramic roof etc

    I think the term you are looking for is not pockets - but caves or forts.

    All amg line c180 from japan comes equiped with black leather interior.
    Yesterday i even saw a add on pakwheels of a japanese amg c180 asking 6.7 million. But today the add is not there.

    It would be wise to actually look at the factory option sheet to confirm the leather package. I have seen many cars that claimed leather but the sheet claimed vinyl seats.

    Yep, warranty is tempting. Personally i only like amg mercs, though one would cost two crores :')
    Basic driving i think audis can do better. A4 and c class are equally good but this a4 has been rated best a4 yet by reveiwers. See some reviews maybe.

    Well i have seen Japenese Merc, a friends also own one but they are mostly in black interior/ black leather and no panaromic but other options are available....Shahnawaz Mercedes are some what limited options not basic but can be added on your special order and plus they got bigger radiators and strong a/c cooling system compare to UK/Japanese model.

    Another factor is the slightly raised ride height with Shahnawaz. I have broken the floor board on my UK e250 twice. With those 245/45/18s the car clears the road by about 120mm. A slight drop in air pressure and it starts to scrape every bump.

    Thanks for the opinion bro but price of basic c180 from shahnawaz is 6.9milion and adding up some Options and the amg package the price shoots upto 8million and This much for a c class is not justified.
    Which make me think either buy a Brand new A4 or import a slightly used c class from japan.
    By the way could you tell me what is distronic?
    Can the language in a japanese merc be changed to english ?

    Yeah this A4 has been rated best uptill now but the problem is its exterior coz apart from its front and tail lights its almost identical to the previus gen.
    Current A4 is rated best mainly coz of its premium interior which is better even if compared to a c180.

    With added options the price skyrockets upto 8million which is insane for a c class. Spending this much can also get me a A6 which is a class apart.
    I think Ac system and small or bigger radiator is not going to be a big issue coz if i buy this its only going to be occasionally used. Like going out with friends and family. But the lowered amg pack ground clearance is a major issue as the car breakers in karachi can become hell for this car.
    How is the drive feel and comfort level of a c180 as compared to a A3 and A4?

    Yea its not worth it in 8.0m from Shahnawaz Merc but still ppl buy it coz its brand new and with warranty. I would not pay more than 6.0m for C180cgi with amg kits, A4 is worth it in 5.8m with many options included.

    I think Ac system and small or bigger radiator is not going to be a big issue coz if i buy this its only going to be occasionally used. Like going out with friends and family. But the lowered amg pack ground clearance is a major issue as the car breakers in karachi can become hell for this car.
    How is the drive feel and comfort level of a c180 as compared to a A3 and A4?

    For 8.0m i would buy brand new A6 with laser led headlight option. Amg kits from Shahnawaz is also not tht lowered compared to UK/Japanese model, i have not driven/ride in new C180 so cant really compare
    My lugnuts require more torque than your Vtec can put out...
