    A3 holds its value better than any other car in UK

    Good news for all of us!

    Suprised the mini isnt in the top 10 though, or any BMW. Maybe BMW refused to take part!

    Point proven then.

    You want to see how much a flipping Renault Megane looses over 4 years - not that I am seeling one to fund my A3, no, no.

    I'm really surprised the Mini isn't at the top of that list. They don't seem to lose much money at all!

    It says they only looked at the top 10 selling cars of 2009 - surprised the A3 made it on to that list although seeing more and more of them about now.

    I don't think they based it on used cars guys....which when you think about it, a 3 year old A3 does actually hold its value pretty well..providing you don't buy something like a 3.2 but a 2.0tdi or a s3 even.

    My 2.0TDI has cost me 5k in 2.5 years of ownership, assuming I trade it in.
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...
