After much mind changing and deliberating I have finally decided 100% that my S3 has to go.
I have committed to moving the business into a unit in October. All being well with the solicitors I should be paying the deposit this week With this is mind the time has come to sell my S3 and get something a little more sensible for the next couple of years as it is a massive step for me and the business.
I have only had the S3 8 months which isn't like me as I normally keep cars for a few years. I know it is the best thing to do though rather than have a £15k car sat outside the unit when that money could have paid for more equipment inside it!
So, what next? I want peoples opinions as I can't decide. I want something that is generally cheaper to run but still has good scope for modifying into something that will represent what we do well. My budget will be approx £7k but if I can get something I like for less then great. Options I have looked at are:
Mk 5 Golf GT TDI & GTI
Mk 4 Golf 1.8T Anniversary
Mk 4 Golf R32 (Terrible on fuel though)
A3 8P 2.0 TDI 140
Ibiza Cupra 1.8 20vT & PD160
Leon 1M Cupra
Astra VXR (Had 1 before the S3, best car I've owned!)
BMW E46 3 series Coupe
