    It's frowned upon, but as far as I know, not against the law.
    By the ways which one do you think is more cheaper to run? Audi A1 tfsi or the sports edition? Im thinking of getting the sports edition and modifying it myself however I want it to give me what its worth.

    Start a new thread for a question like that (and the answer will include checking the insurance quotes yourself).

    Depending on the modifications you will need to notify your insurer and likely have a higher premium.

    It will also probably reduce the resale value.

    All this needs to be factored into any "running" costs. It's not just the cost of petrol that affects running costs.

    Modifications will need to be reported to your insurance company and will increase the premium, which may change the calculation.

    I modified my last car in the UK from 220hp to 350hp, but still managed to get reasonably priced insurance by shopping around, and being old. I miss that car.

    Mods is not going to be OTT but its doing the rims up and tinted windows.

    Not planning to sell it on. Petrols not a problem I just need to know which one I should go for as both are as good as each other and its hard to decide :/

    Those mods make it more likely to be stolen therefore increases your premium.

    True. It wont be parked on a street. Im very wary of all this as this is going to be second and hopefully last car for a while as I finally am ready for an upgrade.

    Aygo was good whilst it lasted I guess I had tinted windows on the aygo however my insurance came up to a total of £650 with 4 additonal drivers which included the tinted windows in that price too! #bargain. Was a good price.

    They still need to be declared. Be careful that the tint is legal.

    They both have very good MPG, so there's no need to worry about their running costs as such.

    IMO there's not much of a sporty feel with the S-Line. My mum has one, and they feel no different to TFSI models.

    I'd advise just going with the TFSI if I'm being totally honest.

    Course I would do Im all legal. I just need to make my mind up on which one to go for. I love the smooth engine of the sports engine. But I liked the speed of the TFSI on the other hand.

    I dont know, its hard

    I have a TFSI S-Line Black Edition. (A4 Quattro and getting a bit old now but has seen good service and over 100k on the clock )

    To be fair, you could probably get another 100k on that car! They're so sturdy. :yep:

    It's worth absolutely nothing if I sell it so I'm currently keeping it going until nextgen hybrids or pure electric get halfway affordable (at a similar "quality" level, Tesla is silly money but I'd love one.).

    Thank you, the size of the engine does differ though which will put the price up. I was also thinking TFSI however the smooth engine of sports edition is one advantage I think.
