All I can muster is respect for the 330d, oh and a big smile when I come to fill it up!

Maybe I miss the 7k revs and the noise, those two things do get you involved in the driving experience and its why I do keep lusting for a fast petrol

Did see a A5 3.2 petrol this morning, that must be worth a looky? I do drive past a couple times a week mate, so if you want a run in mine happy to meet up so you can defo decide against a diesel, he he

Btw, still think the Rocco R will overwhelme the fwd.but hey that could be fun as well!
Cheers for the offer mate. Appreciated. I think I have actually talked myself out of a diesel though! Was looking forward to driving the R on Saturday, but the dealership have pulled the test drive. Apparently the Sales Manager is driving the car so it's unavailable. WTF?!! Do these monkeys actually want to sell cars? I can reschedule apparently. Think I may try elsewhere...
