D180?
Yes - really impressed with the low-end torque.

I've never owned a diesel and I came from an Audi TTS so wasn't too sure what to expect. I test drove a D240 and can't really 'feel' the difference although I'm sure there is. It's a whole different way to drive compared to the Audi. Much more 'relaxed' and I must say, very enjoyable, so far.
I think the same as you, I was very impressed with the performance and I’m coming from an S3. Although I’ve been in a A1 diesel for a few months now though

Not strictly today but yesterday, went to the supermarket and ended up taking a 15 mile detour on the way home just for the sheer pleasure of driving the car. Such a great car to drive and lovely environment to be in.

Better than that, the app has now started showing journeys again, and even downloaded all journeys between 7 December (when it stopped working) and yesterday, so they obviously get stored somewhere. But I’ve no idea why it suddenly started working again, I didn’t change any settings on the car or update the app. Am however glad it did start working again!

That’s good to hear as a run my own business and although right now I use a app to track mileage I was hoping to make use of this feature.

First long motorway journey taking youngest back to Uni, surprised how smooth and quiet it was and unlike some I found three hours in the driving seat amazingly comfortable

Back to the dealer to have ACP installed. I'm quite impressed with it so far.....

Also started playing properly with the menus/setup. The loan car they gave me had the drivers interactive display set to full map which I liked so it's now set on mine...

Costa and back - the great adventure :)
