    A sportback 8P S3 would be the logical answer but they would be approaching three figures mileage wise,what about a Golf ?

    I've never seen one advertised and don't know the value, but I regularly see a Passat R34 which looks very nice!

    The R36 is nice but for that finish on the dash I would have maybe had one.

    I got an A4 avant for the baby seat/buggy stuff. It's just about enough. I'm not sure how much gear you have, but I always seem to be needing more spaces. I looked at an A3 SB but just wasn't big enough for me.
