I have been thinking along these line for a while. We all have different reasons why you would buy a certain kind of car. Personally I had t buy a new one due to my motorplan on the Merc expiered. Agter doing some homework decided on the Merc A 250 Sport. Ordered it and saw the S3 a few months later on a motorshow. Now my brain was thinking as I have never owened a Audi/Volkwagen product before. The following deciding factors was tilting the scale in the Audi's favour:
The Build Quality - just 10 times better than the Merc, no rattles and solid panels.
The power delivery at 221 Kw (206 over here) and 300 Bhp.
More place in die back for adults traveling with you.
Half size spare tyre (Merc has none and rely on BMW at Call.
Wider boot space, and just a final all rounder with enough power to make most cars looking for parking.
What were all your guys personal reasons for this particular model ??? Would love to hear. !!!!
