Exclamation What is a good Audi for 17yrold twins?

My twins [Joel and Lucy, born September 22, 1995 now both 17] have just left Knutsford High School and are starting driving lessons, and are going college and would like an Audi to themselves

So pals, what's a good Audi for the pair?

An A2 is the obvious choice, or go for the not so obvious like I did when I was 17, and bought an A8 4.2 V8 quattro sport.

180 notes eh in that case maybe not an Audi but one of those Gopeds.

At 17 i was working for 55 a week and had to buy my own first car, i ended up with a Mk1 Vauxhall Astra 1.3, 600 beans for the car and 600 beans for insurance. Good days.

The lad is only going to wrap it up anyway so a Landy would be good

I'd go a2 as well - it's sensible first car territory. A newer car will just get trashed
