What to do? New car or not new car?
I think I'm getting itchy feet again...
Partly prompted by the urge to move onwards and upwards (newer) and partly because 8L S3's are long in the tooth now...
I will miss it, I was one of the people who DID try out Glens recommendations and loved it, we must have very similar driving styles. It's a great all rounder.
I need something practical I.E I need a decent sized load area, the S3's load area is pretty restrictive for my day to day stuff but I can live with it.
I'm thinking about :-
S4 (B6) Avant - Easily tunable to 500 horseys, super practical - boring and heavy? If the suspension was sorted, would it equal my S3?
Mk5 Golf R32 DSG- Will I find this too heavy compared to the nimble S3?
MK5 Golf GTi - Great handling car, ok looking, looks even better with CH's and lowered - Would I miss the 4 wheel drive?
A3 3.2 S-line DSG - Same as R32? Not tunable? Supercharging?
A4 1.8T Quattro S-Line - Check out Awesome GTi's example, that's how it would end up - Super practical, similar MPG to the S3, would I hate this on the track?
E46 M3 - Running costs kinda put me off this, I havent driven a RWD car since my rally days, can see myself getting seriously out of shape all the time :)
Budget? £20k- £25k
