    The best kind of shopping trip.

    Although, Ive managed with the S3 as a small family car no problem.

    Best excuse for a 400+bhp `family car` Ive heard this year.

    Good luck

    Must be nice to be in that position! Most people I know have to sacrifice having a nice car when they start popping out sprogs, not get an even better one!

    i've a new born (11 months) and before he was born we where due a change and we went for the sensible option 04 TDI A4. Just wish i had the problem of selling an S3 for an S4.

    Every time i come on this site i'm wanting a change, only good thing is my wife's into her cars as well and mybe some day i'll get my S4.

    Good job! Does it have Black Styling kit? RS4 Avant + Phantom Black + Black Styling kit + anthracite RS4 alloys = droooool! Possibly one of my all time favourite Estate.

    Well if you can afford one it's definitely the right time to be buying one!! You should get a brilliant deal on an RS4 mate. BMW M3 prices have gone through the floor and i wouldn't have thought RS4's are any different...

    I assume prices are dropping because of running costs - high cost of road tax and poor fuel economy? Surely it won't be long before v8 are a dirty word and most cars are either diesel or hybrid. . .

    The RS4 Avant is the best all round car in the Audi range (if not on the road full stop). Very practical (great for dogs, kids, shopping, cases, outdoor pursuits etc etc), fast, looks better than the saloon etc. If i was in the market for one with a nipper on the way it'd be top of the list. Good luck finding a nice one mate.

    Even with one small person it's a struggle sometimes with the A3 Sportback. The boot is quite small compared to other cars - for example, my wife's 306 swallows a lot more than the A3. I can see me needing an estate soon just to avoid piling stuff up on the back seat!!

    RS4 Avant all the way...hopefully!

    Funnily enough...Just been out for lunch and saw an RS4 Avant in what i believe was Dolphin Grey with anthracite wheels and optik pack.... Oh my, thats one mean looking car!!

    Wish you hadn't started this thread now because i've found myself looking at RS4 convertibles again and i want one so badly it's starting to hurt a little bit.
    What makes me want one even more is that they'll never make an RS4 convertible again.... Only the fat and flabby A5/S5 convertible (although RS5 cab will be sure to follow)..... They're just not as sharp and focused as the RS4 are they.

    Might rob a post office and buy one while prices are low....

    Because...The A5 is basically the A4 coupe. All 2 door models on that chassis will be in A5 guise which includes any convertibles. The A4 cab apparently will be discontinued and replaced with the A5 cab which is as camp as a row of tents.
    The A5 cab from the spy shots i've seen looks like a big curvy fat girl with her top off.....Then again some folks like that kinda thing!!

    Tell me about it. Although I blame the size of buggies and prams myself! I'm sure we'd easily fill up an Avant boot as well. After my old Clio V6 the diesel A3 is a bitter but practical pill to swallow. I need V8 power

    The thread digresses

    I know what you mean, we ditched our pram pretty quickly and replaced it with a stroller which takes up have the amount of space.

    On the plus side my Z4 coupe is pretty practical as the boot can take the stroller and enough toys to keep the little man occupied plus the usual changes of clothes, lunch, snacks and toys to keep him entertained!

    Yeah inflateable side bolsters to go with the inflateable price, jokersssss in this climate, stealers still dont grasp economies do they
