    boys I still have have the same high standards that created the A3, I've requested the car be de-badged of 320d and the ///M but I disagree entirely on the whole "shouldn't be on there" the car is an m-sport highline, it carries the m-badge on door sills, steering wheel, gearstick and alloy wheels so if it's good enough for those factory items then its good enough for the boot-lid! It is NOT an m3 badge at the end of the day

    Personally I wanted to stay with audi and get a TT S-line but when you move into that price bracket you can see that Audi don't offer very much for the cash! The 320 offered far more car for the money, as it's the best all rounder! Don't get me wrong I loved the A3 it was excellent but the 320 is a different class of car and shouldn't be compared to a hatchback really

    Had an E46 before the A3 so you never know I could end up in an Audi again lol

    I know what your saying about the M badging in the car smoothie, and I shouldn't really talk with my half a 'S' badge (took the '3' off lol) on my S3 grill on my TDI but I actually think the M badge looks a little out of place like someone stuck it there themselves if you get what I mean. Your taking it off anyway, so well done

    I agree, an ///M badge on the boot is for V8s and V10s only. These don't come with the ///M on the boot from the factory, some plank has stuck it on. You will see yourself getting posted in the clownage thread over on e90post.com if you keep it. Speaking of which, it's a good place to go for info and advice on the e9x models. There's been quite a few people from your part of the world appearing on their recently.

    I had an e90 M sport before my A3. It was a very comfortable car but I only lasted a year with it due to not getting on with the saloon and and just finding it dull to drive. I assume you've got a warranty as it looks like it's at a BMW garage in the pics. If not then get one. The turbos on the 4 cylinders are made of toffee, when they go they take the top end with them costing around £2500 to fix. Watch those wheels as well, the 212s are renowned for cracking if you look at them the wrong way. Was a big bit on Watchdog about them.

    Looks a very clean car. Bonus on the xenons. What other options does it have?

    I dont think its an issue of having an M badge, its just that particular one looks like its been stuck in the wrong place tbf, just looks so wrong, looking again it seems the contrast of chrome version badge, the blue white bmw badge & then the M badge in red etc, just makes it look to busy.

    M cars have the badge on the right and they are smaller.

    I guess the badge is a personal thing but it's more or less the same as sticking an S3 badge on the back of any S Line A3.

    Was going to comment on the juxtaposition of an M badge on a diesel until I read the above. I'm like Nigel, looks nice on the outside but not over impressed with the interiors on current BMWs. That said, its going to be a cracking car & you will love it (until its snows LOL)

    lol @ some of the comments! As I've already said, ive asked for the car to be de-badged, for personal preference though not for fear of ending up in some thread on e90 as for any mechanical issues I will be no worse off than an A3 there's plenty that can go wrong with them lol I know about the wheels, a run-flat issue apparently, car isn't 2years old yet so has warranty so not worried!

    Also the equilavant audi TT s-line came with nothing tbh for similar money, where as this came with xenons, 19" wheels, parking sensors, exterior light pack, full leather, electric & heated seats, extended interior light pack, Bluetooth, iPod, multi-function wheel, cruise control, as standard on the highline! Was the best option by far

    I don't agree about the interior, its certainly plain, but if anything its more driver focused...convience seatbelts is nice touch lol and ambient lighting is the whole car not just two LEDs lol have to agree with snowy conditions but then again, like 60% of people on here I never had quattro to begin with

    Well its sunday and time for my controversial rant of the week
    Trouble is here there are far to many people fretting over what others might think !! and TBH...who cares if you are happy. I had VW Caddy badges on my VR6. It never entered my mind that some twat on an obscure VW thread somewhere in cyberspace might be losing sleep over it To me the inside of a car is what really matters because thats where i sit !! Buggered if i would spend much tarting up the outside just to please onlookers ......And if i tarted it up for my sake then who gives a flying F**k what others think...
