    Absolutely. In the same way, I'm also surprised at the criticism of the Sportback styling because the 3-door just never even registered with me when it was launched (even though before my Audi I had two 3-door cars, a Focus ST170 and a Puma 1.7); but the Sportback really caught my eye, especially as it got the SFG first and those fab Nuvorali-styled rear lights.

    5-doors being the main reason we bought one, as the Sportback is now our only car and my son arrived into the world 11 days ago!

    2004/54 2.0TDI SE 3dr part ex: 12790
    2004/54 2.0TDI Sportback SE part ex: 14555

    The difference in cost brand new was 520, but come trade-in the Sportback is worth a staggering 1765 more! Still like those clean lines?

    Anyway, don't want to go too far off topic - A3_3.2_S-Line's car looks fab.
    Hi, first post and all etc.

    But be careful about those price comparisons on parkers. Did you notice that on the Sportback the mileage was 10000, and the 3dr was 20000.

    That to me says firstly that 3 doors sell more and are higher milage at that age. From what I have heard at dealers is that the sportbacks arent as popular and because of that depreciate faster than the 3dr.

    Nice car (the OPs)

    Just for the record I think the sportbacks look terrible, but as has already been said each to their own. That's a nice bit of photoshopping there S-Line!:biggrin:

    Not quite, if you say something bad about a 3 door your post gets deleted. Anyway I'll not say the 3 door looks terrible, but I much prefer the sportback, the balance is better and has a much nicer looking rear.

    Thank God for that - this thread was supposed to be about A3_3.2_S-Line's new car, but it's turned into a Sportback-bashing!

    To right! You thread jacking terrorists.

    All fun and games.


    Anyways got some sad news!

    After 10 days of ownership some bum (most likely in a 4x4) has hit me in the rear whilst I was parked at a meter in Mayfair. It only a scratch but I felt so sick when I saw it.

    Your entitled to post your opinion about the 3 door.

    ...but threads may get trimmed or deleted if they are deemed to be offsensive to other members on the forum.
