    Another 3 door vote for me, but granted the rear light set up on the Sportback is the nicer rear.

    Side on the 3 door looks better to my eye - the sportback looks too much like a shrunk avant.

    IMHO of course :beerchug:

    You're not alone there buddy, if the interior in my car wasn't already red leather I'd be considering something along these lines XD

    It's also 3 door for me, for pretty much all the reasons previously stated, from the side looks nicer (to me) and also doesn't look as big!
    But the answers are gonna be 3 door for 3 door owners and 5 for SB owners LMAO!

    I have never really liked 3 door cars to much grief getting people in the back.Although i have had plenty when i was younger .So Unless there proper sports cars(ferrarri type) then normal ranges of three doors Remind me of learner cars dunno why ..:shutup2:

    I prefer the short doors on 5 door cars as they are easier to get out of in tight car parking spaces / garages, but I like the rake of the bootline on the 3 door. Also 3 door means I get less people clambering in and out of the car as they always say - you're cars too hard to get in and out of, shall we go in ours! Happily I'll pay their petrol just to save the interior!

    Why ask? You must know.

    For me, SB. I don't own either (yet), but I'm only considering Sportbacks.

    The 3 doors so good, I'm buying another. Not even the Audi dealers could scare me off.

    You will mate, I've been so busy in 2010, but am planning more car events for 2011. Hopefully if the new car arrives in Oct I may have it for ADI. Not sure it will be as "Darth" as yours, but my skills are weak ;-)

    Sportback with S3 side skirts without side skirts give me a three door!!!

    Sportback rear lights and rear In general has a more up to date look

    Still went for a three door though :p never needed the rear doors!

    Same here... another vote for Sportback with roof rails. Don't know what it is but it looks bare without them!
