Basically I'm now torn between the s3 or a3 3.2 dsg as my next car. I previously considered a s4 but have pretty much dismissed the idea due to it being to big and understated for my need and the fuel consumption.
I have test driven the 3.2 dsg and thought it was quick but it didnt feel rapid, however I am prepared to sacrifice the performance becuase of the excellent interior of the car and because the car had only done 6000 miles which could mean the engine might not have been worn in properly. However I am concerned about the depreciation on this car as the big engineed a3's dont seemto be too popular and also the new s3 is coming out.
The s3 on the other has to this point held it's value better but my only concern is the engine is lacking the character of the a3 3.2's and it's exhaust note is not as thrilling. If the s3 will hold it's value better than the a3 over the next year I will probaly buy it and chip it as I dont won't to be hit with depreciation.
All comments will be greaatly appeciated !!! :biggrin:
