Surely anyone looking at getting a 3 door A3 should at least look at one of these ?
I quite like the looks,although I would never consider a 3 door with kids.
Volvo are usually pretty damned good with their standard equipment too.
Things like leather and cruise come as standard on certain models,for example.
Their dolby stereo upgrades are the best I've ever heard too.
Make the Bose stuff sound like one of those radios that look like a can of coke.
