i am not going to call you spoilt, but i will call you lucky! you have the choice between two VERY good cars, so my opinion?

My dad has had an Audi A8 for the past 4 years and it has been great - no problems and the people at the service garage are really friendly and helpful... although we have just bought a VW Polo for me to drive as my first car, and the problems aren't too bad, but the people at the garage just aren't that friendly!

also, audi keep their value longer, so when you want to sell it, you can keep a higher percentage of the money! Also, audi is just a generally more recognised brand... they are MUCH better than volkswagens in general, and there are LOTS of golfs on the road, so just get the audi!

enjoy, and stay safe !

It's not that dangerous to drive an old car. I'd go for the Golf, simply because if you drive an Audi around university (you realise most students don't even take their cars to uni............?) you're going to look a prize idiot, and it's highly likely it'll get damaged by some student who thinks it's funny to take a key to the paintwork.

BMWs are better than Audis in my opinion. I'd get a 330d/335d if i was you.

Both nice cars. Go for cheaper one first maybe, and ask for the difference in cash?

If the old car is another Bentley, then it's dangerous for a learner.

Also, OP, saying you're not spoilt because your dad has a Bentley and your brother a BMW is like saying Bin Laden wasn't evil because Hitler existed.

P.S. I find grammar comes in handy for constructing sentences OP. Give it a whirl some time.

As they charge you £100+/hr And then there's the parts prices :eek: It always amused me when Audi and VW shared dealerships, that Audi owners were happy to have exactly the same technicians as VW owners fix their cars, and pay £20/hr more just because their car had four rings on the boot. It is one of the reasons VAG separated the dealerships. My Skoda has a great many parts with Audi stamped on them

oh shut up.. do you don't know what you're talking about!! :P

anyways, i actually agree with you!! the four rings on the front of the audi make them worth double the price!! the chassis for most of their cars are the same actually, like the Golf and the A4, and the Passat/Jetta and the A6!!

but get the audi! this guy who asked the question is obviously rich, so pay for the better car!! hahah

Both boring choices, for £20k you can get sooooo much more which would actually be exciting and interesting to drive rather than a boring diesel eurobox.

Nah, you can get a used BMW M5 for that £25k now. 507bhp and a V10. And it would beat his brothers M3. Hell to the yeh.

'Beat' can be very subjective. For example, on a cross Europe road trip, the frequency of fuel stops would mean a Daewoo Matiz might be quicker as the M5's tank needs filling every 45 minutes. Also, it has long been proven that a 335D can out-sprint the M5 from 30-70 (M5 3.6s, 335D 3.4s), which is the better way of measuring driving performance than 0-60 and that is before the 335D is map'd easily and cheaply to 350bhp and 500 torque, and still get 45+mpg. The lighter car would also be more nimble on twisty roads, where both of them would be annihilated by something like a Subaru Impreza or Mitsubishi Evo. £22k would easily get you into the territory of Spec-C, Type RA-R and Type 25 Impreza's, and those things leave Ferrari's for dead on the road, although their image leaves a lot to be desired.
