    Just curious about what age group would most likely drive the new S3.

    Wow, must be an entirely different culture in the UK/Europe. I don't know anyone in Australia who turns over cars as quickly as you guys. When I buy a car I want it to last a good 10+ years! What happens to all the cars you get rid of?

    Don't think it has anything to do with culture. It's just a way too expensive hobby of mine. When I get married and have children (very soon) it will be over and I hope it can start with my S3 soon...

    I insure my S3 and my wife's X5 for £500/yr. Pretty reasonable I think.

    32 when my 8V S3 was delivered, now 33.

    Would've loved to have been running around in one of these when I was 22-24! But don't think I was mature enough - reward points were a bit of an ongoing issue!

    My second car was a Mk5 GTI and that was already well over £1k to insure at the time. This is my fourth car and insurance is now down to less than £200 so becomes irrelevant in comparison to cost of car.

    Insurance isn't to bad in Australia for young drivers. If you get your licence before / at 18 by the time you are in your early 20's the premiums are fairly low as-long as your traffic history and at-fault claim history is OK. I was paying a higher premium for my Holden / Chevy Cruze back at 19 years old than i'm paying for my s3 now.

    I have to admit the no wife and no kids must help. However I do have a mortgage! I paid as much as I could for my car in cash to keep my finance repayments as low as possible. I'm paying just under $1,000 AUD per month.
